That depends on your stock keyboard. Gboard is a great option now (especially since the Dec 2016 update).
I used nothing but SwiftKey for about 2 years but was always bothered by certain things, like the aggressive spacing after periods. Trying to text somebody a web address was always frustrating. Gboard handles that better.
I've tried others and keep coming back to "Gboard - the Google Keyboard":
It does everything I want and I do not have to worry about it being spyware and stealing my passwords, logins, etc.
Try the Google Keyboard. It beats the shit out of the Samsung one.
Also, if you really want to enjoy Android, check out r/Tasker. This is the ultimate automation app which can do just about anything you want your phone to do when a certain condition is met.
When my girlfriend really needs to get a hold of me and my phone is on silent, I'm asleep, or whatever, I have it set to ring really loud when she texts me "911". But it can do a LOT of more complicated things than that.
well i also have a solution for that, just use google's GBoard. you can set it to have a dedicated emoji key that brings up the usual categories and a search bar. i just found out you can even search by drawing the emoji.

Tell your friend not to spend too much time on Reddit.. my friend didn't realize it was 2018 already. (งツ)ว
I find Google Keyboard (or Gboard as it's recently been renamed to) to be the easiest for both. First thing I installed when I got this phone and haven't switched from it since.
Get the "Gboard" update here if the Play Store listing is still called Google Keyboard for you.
Too keep this simple for people, this is a skinned keyboard of the "stock" Google Keyboard.
Personally, I prefer the stock keyboard over others, and now that I have Chrooma, I set the skin to #000000. I'm one really happy AMOLED user right now.
I live in Ireland, the euro is my currency. However there's no English language that has € on the front board, using UK English I gotta go into numbers/symbols and long press on £ to pull up the € character.
It's great that I have Irish as an option, but I'm practically illiterate there...
The word prediction engine? You mean the Samsung Keyboard? Just download Google Keyboard ( [link] ) or Swiftkey ( [link] )
Gboard has a million languages and Maori is one of them. It automatically suggests macrons where appropriate and has auto-correct for both English and Maori.
Keyboards you might like but would need to try for yourself:
I'm a big fan of voice to text, though. It's not perfect, but it's much faster than typing by hand overall.
Very cool functionality
For those that aren't aware what this is (like me) here's the links:
Keyboard: Google Keyboard
Gboard to klawiatura Google. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.inputmethod.latin&hl=en
SwiftKeya używałem mniej więcej do 2016-7 roku, kiedy klawiatura Google go przegoniła pod względem jakości i szybkości działania.
Which "default Chinese keyboards" are you referring to? If you are using Gboard you shouldn't have any of those problems.
You could try a different keyboard app, for example gboard is the Google one. I personally haven't had any problems with it, however I've heard some complaints on /r/android about predictive text. Alternatively I've heard some good things about SwiftKey
You want a keyboard that's not comfortable? Try the Go keyboard.
jk but seriously, I think Google's own Gboard is hard to top. It's got just about everything: intelligent suggestions, fluid and accurate gesture typing (accurate at least in English), support for a huge array of languages and even dialects, a simple theming engine, a sleek minimalistic design, voice typing, etc etc. Also Google search is baked into the keyboard itself. It's great for both gesture typing and tap typing
It looks like you have the default Samsung keyboard. I believe it is possible to turn predictions on for it, but I recommend getting Gboard instead, it's a much better keyboard. Also, it's the keyboard in the first picture. Here's the Play Store link.

Google Keyboard has settings that allow you to have different levels of auto-correct, including turning it completely off.
You could always use a different keyboard, if you're not attached to the VZW one. I would recommend Gboard (Google Keyboard) or Swiftkey. These both have better autocorrect functionality. Also, I know that Gboard allows you to disable the automatic word replacement feature. Swiftkey surely also has a similar option.

Feedback sound on Google Keyboard isn't that bad to me. Ask me about the stock keyboard on Android 4.x and I'd agree with you.
Classic Google. Why can't this be part of the already available Google Keyboard? No, we have to make 5 different apps.
Well, I'm not "Anybpdy" (LOL) but I found that the gboard (Google Keyboard) does a better job at swiping vs the stock Samsung keyboard and does better auto-correct on the rare occasion I actually type a word :)
So, not exactly the same, but you can create your own gifs with Gboard.
Article kind of telling how
Looks like Gboard - Google's keyboard possibly? You can make your own themes on it, I have a similar background I uploaded to my own custom theme.
This works on Android as well, if you are using Google's own Android Keyboard. It probably works on others as well, but there are too many keyboard apps available for me to definitively say it works on all of them.
There are enough bilingual people in the world such that if you have your device configured correctly, it's super fast to switch. For example, I'm using the Gboard on my Android device with two languages enabled. I can switch keyboard layouts with on tap of the globe that is right next to the space. Even if I don't want to bother switching the layout, it is smart enough to give me suggestions in both of my languages.
On my H990DS SEA (daily driver - settings and apps migrated from my previous Android phone, a Moto X Play):

The 2nd option "Spelling correction" is missing.
However, also under:
So suggestion/question: did you already download Gboard and set that under Current keyboard?
Also: which version of the H990DS does she have? Can be found under:

Personally, I've been using the Google Keyboard on my previous Android and my S6 because it's quite similar to the stock iPhone one and has Swype inbuilt.
I'd say you switch to Google Keyboard and improve your typing experience entirely with their Material Light or Material Dark option for a sexy keyboard.
He can change to a different keyboard. I personally prefer the plain Google keyboard. Has the mic button in the upper right. [link]
One of the things I like about Android is it's ability to be customized. For example, I also despise the Samsung keyboard because it is slow and the word prediction is crap, so I switched to Gboard.
With many Russian keyboards, including handwriting recognition.
I noticed that too and haven't figured it out. I know that Google's Gboard had it placed down there if I remember correctly. You can always install it, set it as default and give it a try.
have you tried using "Gboard" keyboard and resizing it? I think Gboard is leaps and bounds better than Samsung's keyboards.
It's a keyboard app:
Skini Gboard. Imaju srpska latinica i ćirilica i stvarno radi super. [link]
Disclaimer: I would never tell anyone what keyboard they should be using. Privacy and data mining are serious tools with near-zero laws and regulations on how an individual may use the data they collect, be it to go after someone they don't like, incite a targeted collective, or harm the ability for a cultural group to support themselves.
With that clarified, the native keyboard for android devices is gboard by google. So it's the one i would recommend you use if you are having issues with the one samsung has built for you.
Once installed, it will be in that menu from earlier.
It's an app available for Android on the Google Play store--no idea of they offer it on other OSes.
I initially got it when I had a cheapo phone that didn't offer an emoji keyboard--Gboard did, and for free, no ads (and Google probably already has everyone's private info), but I've found it to be great at handling switching between languages and offering lots of layouts for both Latin alphabets and other writing systems.
> Why is there no other app that can do this?
All notepad/memo and text input apps can do it if you use a keyboard that supports microphone input.
Google Gboard specifically supports a voice typing mode.
A week or two ago, I posted that this Android keyboard began supporting Korean input, but I didn't realize that it was only in the beta version of the app. Now Korean is available in the normal version on the Play Store!
It probably depends on your version, but on my Note 4, it's under the keyboard's settings > "My hot keys" > then 0-9 can become shortcuts when long pressed.
That said, Google's keyboard is available to everyone and I'd totally recommend it, personally. You can still have a dedicated number row, which is what kept me on Samsung's for a long time.
> Would love to hear what people think about things like location sharing.
Location sharing would be troublesome for subs like /r/gonewild and we would prefer it not be an option. If people want to share their location they can use other ways, which gives people a little hurdle to cross before they give it out, giving them a bit more time to really think about it and wonder if it's the right thing to do.
But do add Gboard functionality, IE make sure it works with Gboard. Some apps like snapchat don't allow full gboard functionality, for example adding gifs, google search/translate/maps etc right in chat.
(((GBoard))) is okay if you don't mind the botnet
F-Droid has some keyboards if you want something open source
On newer versions on Android and iOS, you can use gif keyboards like Gboard to search for them
I don't believe it's possible with the Samsung keyboard. Your best bet is to install a separate one, such as Google's. It has a comma to the right of the spacebar, as well as gifs and built in search. There are also options such as Swiftkey, if that doesn't work for you.
Disclaimer: I don't claim to know what I'm talking about.
> *Should we keep on adding services to the keyboard, or we should focus just on one service such as payments on the keyboard, or e-commerce on the keyboard.
My first thought on seeing this is that you'll be competing with Gboard (Google's keyboard), so you'll need a better proposition than a "smart keyboard that does things". Hence, I would pick one specific service or area and get really good at that, rather than having the keyboard do a lot of things. The "keyboard that helps you save" (for instance) sounds a hella lot more appealing than "the smart keyboard", particularly in the context of competing against Gboard.
> *Should we restrict this idea to the keyboard, or try to implement this on Quickball (assistive touch) kind of thing, which could be accessible throughout the phone rather than just messaging services.
I would just pick one thing, otherwise it's putting too much too quickly on your plate. If you had to pick one (custom keyboard or quickball thing) which one would do the job best? Then stick to that.
> *What should be our monetizing plan.
I would suggest none (for now). If you can afford it, I would try and get a few thousand people to use it and give feedback before you start thinking about monetizing it. Eventually if you get people using it you can always add premium features on top, but at this stage you need to find out if people want it first and foremost.
(Also, uh, this sub is /r/hwstartups, for hardware startups, you should have probably posted on /r/startups instead)
Use Gboard, Google's new keyboard. There's a gesture option in there to enable cursor movement by swiping left or right along the spacebar. Another one of the gesture options is a "mass delete" where you swipe left on the backspace and it highlights whole words to delete.
It's not possible to switch between them officially but if you have a rooted phone you can use WA Tweaks to switch.
If you want more GIFs you can also use GBoard Google keyboard to search for GIFs everywhere and send it in WhatsApp in one click.
�� I think Giphy is better ��
Use a different keyboard like GBoard from Google. I've had problems with built-in keyboards on LG and Samsung too. Also make sure there aren't any system updates available.
I have never used the standard keyboard tbh, have you tried Gboard (Google Keyboard)? I have had no problems with it, before or after the update. Gboard in the Play Store
The Google Keyboard can do swype texting. You can install that from the Play Store on any phone.
A number of other free keyboards integrate it as well.
Generally either of these keyboards are way superior than the old prediction technology in the Galaxy S3. I use the Google Keyboard personally.
Actually, Google themselves are doing lots of work in language support. I noticed this morning that the Google Keyboard supports Zulu and Xhosa inputs.
It seems the update is starting to push out, the update day appears as today on desktop.
It's an update to Google Keyboard either way.
See that G button on the left? If you are using g-board ( [link] ) you'll have that customization option after you press it.
This still says Google Keyboard for me, but the screenshots show Gboard. I'll try updating it.
EDIT: The app is Gboard, which is an updated Google Keyboard. It's the same app. I think my keyboard is smaller now. I'm gonna have to mess with settings.
Try clearing the app's cache then data
If that doesn't work, try factory reset (will delete everything on the phone)
if you don't want to factory reset, try using Google Keyboard
AOSP keyboard is basically a stripped down version of the Google Keyboard, which is the one with all the new gestures and themes.
About the first suggestion, the google keyboard has a handy voice to text option. See the second image here [link]
Around Android 4.4, they added this: [link]
Make sure you have Google's keyboard installed (above link). As in the description, you either get an emoji icon on the bottom right corner, or can hold return to get it. Using these emoji, you can add weird dogs and snowmen to just about anywhere. You can even use them in note titles I think.
This sounds like an issue with your keyboard. Which keyboard are you currently using?
If you don't mind switching, you can try out Google Keyboard or SwiftKey Keyboard and see if the problem goes away.
Maybe Google keyboard got uninstalled or disabled?
Or some settings were turned off on your Samsung keyboard ?
Yeah, the first two are just phones that are semi-modular (or fully modular) where you can potentially add in a slide-out keyboard using the modularity. The 2015 Fairphone (Android) might also go that route.
If you just want a keyboard, and don't care about it being a slide out one, then there are more options (like the BlackBerry Passport, which runs Android apps), but keyboards in general on phones are kinda disappearing (as most people are ok with using and onscreen input method like Google Keyboard's swipe input), and any specific version of physical keyboards are going to be increasingly hard to find.
What version of Android are you on?
If below 4.4, you'll have to update Google Keyboard every time manually. 4.4 made Google Keyboard a must-have on most phones IIRC, and you can update the app from here.

Welcome to my nightmare too. I get the same. I am looking for an answer too. I have all settings correct and predictive setting and autocorrect and language and will NOT do a master reset. I am using gboard for now instead. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.inputmethod.latin&hl=en_US
I'd recommend Google's GBoard app as an alternative to the Samsung keyboard - I noticed the Samsung keyboard was behaving terribly (autocorrect was really aggressive and changed words that were spelled correctly but would miss other words that I had misspelled).
In my opinion its light-years ahead of the default Samsung keyboard, plus:
Try it out and see if you like it ��
Switch to Google Keyboard. Samsung's keyboard is really bloated and doesn't have the same power as Google in text predictions.
>...prefably the width of the screen.
Uh, isn't that just a normal sized keyboard?
If you use the Google Keyboard you can adjust the size of the one-handed keyboard.
Nope my phone have this shit too https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.inputmethod.latin&hl=en
You should really use something like Gboard (Android) or Gboard (IOS) and start swiping. Really, we can't read what you're typing.
Oh a Huawei? I don't have one I can play around with so I am not 100% sure where all the symbols are but you do have the option of switching to an alternate keyboard such a Gboard.
You're talking about the Software keyboard right? Have you tried a different keyboard? Maybe the Gboard which is developed by Google?
Also you've probably already checked it out, but I use Google's keyboard and I like it enough, hopefully it works better for you. Not sure if it's a popular choice around here or not though. The vertical scrolling thing may be something you can set in certain launchers, you could probably Google which support vertical scrolling. But if you need help with any of this feel free to ask and I can help where I can. I'm still kind of new to the customization and stuff of Android but if I can answer questions I totally will.
Tu cherches quoi comme type de clavier, à part un français correct ? Le clavier "officiel" c'est Gboard de Google. Personnellement, venant de Windows Phone, je préfère celui de BlackBerry que tu peux sideloader d'ici
Yeah, I think there used to be two different apps, google keyboard being the one without the search features. But this is the one
Google actually started to support stickers not long ago with Gboard. It doesn't seem like many companies are jumping in other than Disney at the moment though.
Use GBoard for typing, and then hold down the spacebar to switch to Google Handwriting Input. Unless I've misunderstood and you're talking about the animated message thing.
Oh whoops. That's weird, it seems that Samsung's stock keyboard doesn't support shortcuts. You can try installing Gboard, because I have the Personal Dictionary menu with that as the default keyboard.
Then I'm thinking it's actually something with the way the keyboard is sending emojis. Are you using the three dots in BlackBerry Keyboard to enter emojis?
If so, for the sake of testing, can you please install Gboard: [link]
Once installed, slide down from the top and switch from BlackBerry Keyboard to Gboard, then type the emojis there.
One does download it on the google play store. It is called gboard ([link]). After downloading, one needs to set it as default input method.
•Spigen makes a good case, and cheap, but isnt good for long-term single hand use (driving).

It's GBoard, you can download it here.
Also, even if it was part of the OS, they have different teams working on different parts of the OS. Why wouldn't they be allowed update it?
Thanks for the super detailed response! I personally think Spotify is kind of overpriced - however, even if I was prepared to pay for Spotify premium I'll miss the small details that iOS offers.
I noticed that memory management is excellent on iPhone (when compared w/S8) and multitasking is much faster as well. All of this is achieved with weaker hardware, which is impressive. Example
I currently use Gboard as my primary keyboard, it's super fast and has cool features like sending links, gifs and searching Google for information or images straight from the keyboard. I checked and it's on both platforms, so that's not a problem.
>there's usually A LOT of variety on the Play Store .. even if there are other 20 apps that look like crap
You reminded me of something else, I despise the Play Store! It just feels like the App Store's ugly sibling.
I guess I'll just wait and see. I'm more of a cosmetic person when it comes to phones, so I hope Apple takes a few notes from the S8's front design (the back is just horrible).
I didn't hit save. I promise it will work now. I also added some flair for posts. If you think I should add more flair to either just let me know.
What I was talking about for the forums being buggy is on my phone. I can't type at all on my phone I have never had a problem on any website ever on this keyboard I have had since it came out Gboard which is by Google. It's something to do with their text field, and if I am on my PC, I am gaming or doing homework. So, if I am on my phone, that's when I normally get on Reddit and my forums.

Gboard (Google Keyboard)
If the phone isn't a Pixel and it has its own phone/email/messenger apps get the stock android apps like GBoard, Messages, Google Dialer, etc. I find they are the simplest with the least frustrations.
Definitely start using the Google Photos app, turn on backup so it saves to your google acct when you are on wifi. There are some really advanced search features, you can search by face or object, or location or whatever. Its pretty useful when you have tens of thousands of photos and want to find a specific one.
I'd suggest using the Asus File Manager, it is pretty full featured but really easy to use.

They're not, but this:
>It is unreasonable to expect them to do it for us.
They're still developing apps built on the AOSP base, but not sharing the sources. They used to, and that's partially what made Android so popular among enthusiasts when it mattered. It would be reasonable to assume they'd share the sources for apps they still develop. At the very least, these are no longer developed openly: Keyboard, Authenticator, Messaging, ~~Calculator~~, ~~Contacts~~, ~~Clock~~, ~~Dialer~~.
EDIT: I was wrong, some of these are still developed! See here.
Your manufacturer probably installed TouchPal as the default keyboard, and Google's voice typing might be the only remaining input method since you removed it. Try installing a new keyboard and setting is the default in your device settings.
I'm using the Google Keyboard on Android 7.0
download it via play store

This is the one I meant. Sorry for not being more clear!
No native button for it.
Whether an easy shortcut already exists depends on your OS.
Lots of software auto-converts -- (two hyphens) to an em dash, however.
These are the native shortcuts:
There are tons of ways to configure your own shortcuts and tons of different ways people like to do it, so I won't make any hard-and-fast recommendations there.
But here are places to start:
*You might find that the long-press options are missing for your whole symbol set.
Means you're probably running a default manufacturer keyboard (Samsung, HTC, etc.).
They like to remove secondary key features, for whatever reason.
Replace with stock android keyboard ("Google Keyboard"), SwiftKey, or other.

Use Google Keyboard?
That phone has 512mb of RAM and an 800MHz single core processor; it is by no means a fast phone. It is a really cheap phone that will not be able to handle more than one app at a time.
That said, I'm going to go into detail about how I would set the phone up.
First thing to do is to root: Here is a guide.
Apps to Install:
Google Keyboard (Hackers Keyboard is ALOT more lightweight, but doesn't have gesture typing)
Nova Launcher (or similar lightweight launcher)
Firefox for Android
Greenify (Works best with root, only Greenify apps that you DO NOT want running while your screen is turned off)
NoBloat or System app remover (Root apps that will allow you to remove bloatware, remove all apps that are not LG's system apps)
AdAway (System-wide adblocker)
After setting everything up (keyboard, launcher, browser), disable all the stock apps (stock keyboard, stock launcher, stock browser, etc.). Make sure to Greenify any games that you download (those don't need to run while your screen is off).
Your phone isn't very powerful, so things will lag when CPU usage is at 100% or when your RAM gets full, even with the suggested setup above.
Just install Gboard and use Googles Keyboard.
What you want is a keyboard. Gboard has gifs and might be on there already.
Hold enter key if you're using google keyboard.
I am just gonna copy my comment from another thread:
If you wanna use Android to its full potential, try to understand Launcher, Browser and Keyboards, like /u/byte9 said, with which you can vastly customise your user experience.
There are many different launchers with different functionalities, Nova Launcher for example comes close to stock Android while still providing much customizability, Google Now Launcher offers full stock feeling but not as much customizability. Just type Launcher into Google Play Store and you'll find dozens and can choose one that you prefer. I'd recommend trying out Nova though.
Same goes for Keyboards, you have countless of options. Over on /r/Android the Google Keyboard is very much liked. I personally prefer SwiftKey, because it's the only keyboard that offers good multi-language support and the suggestions are in my opinion way better on Swift Key, but it all comes down to personal preference.
You can also pick from many different browsers, while I just stick to the Samsung Browser because I don't really feel the need to switch over to Chrome or Firefox, its important to know that both Chrome and Firefox can Sync with their desktop equivalent, so if you use Firefox or Chrome on your Desktop it might be worth checking out both. Also important, the mobile Firefox Browser supports add-ons, including Add Blocker which could really influence your browsing experience.
If you decide to give Nova a try, I would suggest to also try out some Icon Packs.
My personal favourite: Vopor.
A free alternative: Polycon.
There is also an App by Samsung called Good Lock, what it does is completely change the apperance of the OS. I really prefer GoodLock over the Touch Wiz style. If you're from the US you can try it out via the Galaxy App Store, if you are not, you can download it here.
Here is a video so you can check out what Good Lock does.
No app data can be transferred between platforms via moving files around. Not only could you break something while doing that, but you would need root access (not to mention the 'equivalent' file names/structures on Android) on the Note 4 to get the files onto it.
Starbucks has its app data synced with their systems, so by merely logging into it on Android will pull down the latest card/account info. I believe DD and MapMyRun (called Run with Map My Run on Android) are the same way and use clouds to sync data between devices.
While looking up Showcase on iOS, I see a Cydia package that changes the keyboard keys to mirror the case that will be typed - is this the right app? Android has many keyboards to choose from and this is often a built in feature, so there is no reason you will need this.
AnyList isn't available on Android, but there are many other apps that offer a similar functionality. As such, you won't have your data upon switching to Android and will need to start up with a new app. The same is likely to happen with your games as well, assuming they don't have a cloud solution in place in their backend.
EDIT: I guess AnyList is looking to have an Android client created at some point, but who know when that could happen. Something to look out for in the future!
Use the Gboard keyboard, and select Urdu (India) as an additional keyboard.
I find that this is barely a problem anymore. Nearly all current devices can display the Esperanto special characters, and have simple input options available.
This was more of a problem in the pre-unicode era, when most forums/applications expected plain ASCII or some other limited character set (to say nothing of the pre-digital era).
First of all, it’s not an app.
Also, you can just use another app, like Gboard. In fact, why wouldn’t you?
G Board, used it on my S7 and while I tried the Samsung Keyboard again, I just can't get used to it.
Have you tried GBoard? ([link])
G board by Google has a nice emoji search.
Use this keyboard instead of the Samsung default one if you can switch keyboards.
Gboard (google keyboard).
Overall my favorite.
Gboard was bit unreliable for a month or so, so I had to check out alternatives. The ones I liked were:
Multiling O Keyboard
Gboard is great and does this [link]
A way to fix this would be to get something like Gboard from the play store and use that as your primary keyboard.
It's Google Keyboard:
Gboard has gifs. It's Google's new keyboard. I don't know about NSFW gifs but one can always try.
Gboard has replaced the old Google Keyboard... you can check for it on the play store:
This sounds like a keyboard problem more than anything, but you said that it only happens in your stock SMS app, so it's tough to say what is exact issue is. Try installing and switching keyboards to see if that is the issue (link to Google's Keyboard and SwiftKey, 2 very good keyboards worth checking out). But if this issue does have something to do with the stock SMS app or if the keyboard switching doesn't help, try switching to a different texting client and see if that helps. Google's Messenger app is very pretty and works fantastic and Textra is a personal favorite (tons of customizations, although $1 after the trial).
All I talk about under here is purely for the aesthetics of your phone
Download Nova Launcher and just use it. The paid version gives you a bit of more customization and notification badges. Use the free version, and if you think there's something in the paid version you want down the road, then pay for the app.
I'm not sure about other brands but Samsung has a ton of themes that will change the look of your dialer, notification drawer, menus, etc. You can use Nova to customize your homescreen, but it won't customize your menus and stock apps. Check out the theme store and see what you like. But the reason everyone likes the Material theme is because it's close to Google's philosophy of design (material), and so it looks like stock android which everyone with an S6 tries to achieve. If you really don't care about making your phone look like stock android, then you don't have to download a theme. It doesn't give you an advantage, just aesthetics.
I really like customizing my phone, here's what my homescreen looks like
This is all using the free version of Nova Launcher. I also use Material Dark theme.
Since I care about aesthetics, I also have Google Keyboard installed, simply because it looks cleaner and I can use a dark keyboard to go with my Material Dark theme.
For wallpapers I generally use Murum
Some free things your phone comes with
You get 100gb (or 150gb) of free OneDrive storage for buying an S6. 100gb of free cloud storage is really nice. There's a feature to sync all your photos to the cloud when you're sleeping/charging at night. You can delete your photos later on if you ever need more storage. You can also put documents and music on OneDrive (it's just like Dropbox, etc.)
My favourite is the free 6 months of Google Play Music. Launch the app, and activate your free 6 months. You have to put a credit card, but you can cancel it before the 6 month ends and it won't charge you. Google Play Music lets you stream any music from the Google Play store and also download them for offline. It's like free Spotify or Apple Music for 6 months.
With both of these offers, I'm pretty much living on the cloud. And it helps when my phone is only 32gb.
Use AOSP Keyboard by Google. It has material design and supports Swype functionality
Does emoticons too.
google keyboard aka gboard has this mode. it's nice
Have you tried Gboard?
All the features + more Gboard
Customisation galore Mulitiling
Privacy focus Anysoft
Gboard is the most WP like keyboard. And BeyondPod is my favorite podcast app.
Also, I recommend Action Launcher as you can get a vertical alphabetized list of apps. It's from the left not the right, but it's better than a grid.
And you should get Rewards it'll randomly ask door short surveys and give you a handful of change to use on apps in the play store, it's not much at a time but $10 a year isn't nothing.
Edit: Also, I'm sorry your first Android is a cheap Samsung you're gonna have a bad time.
I think Swipe was mentioned just as an example, see Play Store description for other features: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.inputmethod.latin. Let's also consider that these features are powered by state of the art machine learning, which needs complex models: https://ai.googleblog.com/2017/04/federated-learning-collaborative.html, https://ai.googleblog.com/2017/05/the-machine-intelligence-behind-gboard.html. Advances in technology are what enabled such features to run on mobile; none of these could run even on a desktop computer from Windows 95 era.
Google Play Services is the most widely misunderstood "app" of all times. Location is "built into Android" in the sense that the Android OS has some hooks and simple implementations (GPS and mobile). Google Play Services, which is usually shipped with the OS and updatable from the Play Store is what makes location work as good as it does (provides fused location from GPS+mobile+WiFi). Same package provides most of the APIs you see here: https://developers.google.com/android/.
I think it's okay to question some of these things and stir productive discussions on how to improve state of the art, but let's not take for granted everything that has been developed since Windows 95 and say they're on par in terms of features. The only thing Windows 95 could produce reliably is blue screens. Let's also consider memory protection, sandboxing, and all the security improvements for attack vectors that weren't even invented when Windows 95 existed.
>Modern cars work, let’s say for the sake of argument, at 98% of what’s physically possible with the current engine design.
Don't find this particularly helpful either. I could make the exact same claim about modern apps and current mobile operating systems. EVs convert electric energy more efficiently into useful work than conventional cars convert the energy stored in gasoline, and they're both far from 100% efficiency.
To brzmi jak ogłoszenie jakiegoś starszej daty przedsiębiorcy (nie wiem, może 50+ lat?), co odbiera bardzo dużo komunikacji emailowej i nienawidzi wstukiwania wiadomości na klawiaturach dotykowych.
Jeśli ktoś ma "grube palce", albo nawet nie ma grubych palców ale po prostu jest sfrustrowany wpisywaniem treści na telefonie, to rozwiązaniem nie jest "jednoręki qwerty", a aplikacje które są do tego specjalnie przygotowane i wykorzystują technologię "przesuwania palcem" [link] .
Android i IOS mają dostęp do następujących apek:
Dodatkowo Gboard ma opcję "dyktafonu", który po prostu wpisuje to co mu powiesz, działa również w połączeniu z zestawem słuchawkowym albo głośnomówiącym z samochodu.
"Jednoręki qwerty" może być jedynym sposobem z którym jesteś oswojony, ale nie jest najlepszym sposobem.
Mój nieobeznany z technologią 81-letni dziadek jak dostał tablet z wymienioną powyżej "przesuwaną klawiaturą" po 20 minutach wprowadzenia nie miał żadnych problemów aby wpisywać dowolnej długości tekst, ale dużo bardziej wolał korzystać z dyktafonu, bo nie musiał wcale dotykać urządzenia aby wpisywać wiadomość.
Poza tym wodoodporność poziomu IP68 i klawiatura qwerty to wykluczające się rozwiązania technologiczne. Prędzej czy później woda czy kurz dostanie się pod membrany przycisków i spowoduje "pominięte kliknięcia".
Whoever developed your particular keyboard. But if you don't like there's lots to choose from in the Play Store. Try Gboard or Swiftkey to start with.
Comes standard on a lot of phones.
Just use Gboard.
I've ditched the Samsung keyboard altogether and use Gboard.
Try reinstalling it, or atleast reinstalling the updates. It might help!
As another commenter already said, GBoard by Google.
But you can also take a step further, and try Chrooma. This keyboard can move the cursor and also select text by swiping, and offers many more gestures
And for Android you can install Gboard and select abc-- > to اُردو in languages.
Gboard is the best one in my opinion.
Gboard replaces the standard keyboard. You can find it in the app store.
Which keyboard are you using? I'd recommend Gboard, Swiftkey or Swype.
I just switched over to Gboard myself.
Honestly Google's own keyboard is the best one out there IMO
Here it is in the Play Store.
Here you go it's a pretty damn awesome keyboard
It's only happening to you because you let it happen. You see barriers instead of possibilities or avenues where you get what you want.
Don't use swype then? Myself, I type with my two thumbs tapping as well, and also from muscle memory. I use swiftkey, but don't use that on an old phone, the autocorrect function is really heavy and if it's a slow phone, it's laggy as hell.
Simply the google keyboard should suit yourr thumb tapping needs with minimal lag. (Also likely pre-installed).
Also the fact that your screen is blocked is because the DPI of that phone is super low. A higher resolution allows for more to be displayed. Some people mistake this for "oh my screen is too small", but that is a misconception.
This is how this text input looks like on my phone.
In the same vein of controllers: It is definitely possible to get accustomed to twinsticks, like everyone else in the world has before you. Though, if you would be looking for a controller that has a different feel to it, the steam controller might suit you better. Beware though, that you seem really bad at picking new things up, and it has a "learning curve" as well.
The tripes of old age are not getting to you in your ability to get accustomed to something, but rather seeing walls and forgetting where you left the ladder so you just stay behind the wall. There are retired people that picked up on programming in their old days!
You have that one installed?
Scroll down to the Android section and read which files are needed. [link] I've been running Chromium 47 downloaded from there for a month. It works great.
While you're at it, use [link] to download a decent, non-laggy keyboard made by Google from the play store using this link [link]
Just fyi, the AOSP keyboard is no longer a system app and can be downloaded from the play store on to any device. [link]
Dude, just use Google Keyboard. Like you did on the Nexus 6.
Vanilla android has these emoticons.
Take for example Samsung. They have their own "theme" for android which adds some settings and tweaks, and also changes the emoticons to these.
So it's not Google's choice to have different emoticons on every phone. It's the manufacturers that do that.
One way you could get the vanilla Android emoticons is with Google keyboard.
Acum trei ani am raportat o problemă cu tastatura la Android 4.1.1.
Acum doi ani Google a lansat
Tastatura Google ca produs separat.
Tastatura Google necesită Android 4.0 sau o versiune ulterioară!
Dar doar relativ recent avem și tastare gestuală pentru limba română.
For some reason keyboard swiping doesn't work but can easily be fixed by reinstalling Google Keyboard: [link]
I like Google Keyboard, especially for the material design, but I found it to be less accurate than SwiftKey and the predicitions left a bit to be desired. Instead I'm using SwiftKey with the dark material theme. Works well and looks almost as nice as Google keyboard.
Try using GBoard. It may take a few days to get used to, but trust me, it's miles better.
My bad it's called Gboard
Try using GBoard. It's vastly better.
It's part of the Gboard, the standard keyboard on my phone
It's Google keyboard for Android. "Gboard"
Use Android's default keyboard instead of this garbage : [link]
Some apps I always install
Are you using iPhones or Android? The built-in iOS keyboard don't have native resize, you'll want 3rd party keyboard like Google's or SwiftKey, both support resizing (obviously, only vertically). If you're using Android, it's likely GBoard and SwiftKey is pre-installed anyway.
i think he meant this
The only one I know is [link]
Es una chulada este teclado; ampliamente recomendable.
Link para descargar el teclado
No other efforts were made for this very helpful comment.
I assume you are an Android user. You can install Google Keyboard and have the decimal point available:
You can delete autocorrections usually in the settings. If not, get Gboard.
You can download gbord and theme it as you like. In my opinion it the best keyboard app: [link]
I would switch to GBoard. It has both of those options and is a good keyboard in my experience.
You could switch keyboard apps
I know Gboard has a microphone optiom
Not swiftkey, google keyboard.
I use GBoard, it's really nice.
EDIT: Nice is not spelled ni
Gboard - the Google Keyboard and Make it one-handed by cnet
old-fashioned but powerful and customizable.
Settings for Hacker's Keyboard | Gesture and key actions
Swipe Left / Increase Height(of keyboard) | Swipe Right / Decrease Height(of keyboard)
Gboard has floating keyboard and Swipe
Make sure Google Keyboard is installed. If unsure, go to play store and download this [link] if it's already installed or if you finished installing GBoard, download the language pack for the keyboard. Here are the choices for Chinese. Pinyin - [link] Zhuyin - [link] Cantonese - [link] and lastly Handwriting - [link] After installing the language open the app and follow the instructions.
It's Gboard, with the dark theme.
Here's the Play Store link.
It's a custom theme (aka picture background) for Gboard: [link]
Launcher Nova Launcher or Action Launcher 3
Music Player Phonograph if you care about looks otherwise Poweramp
Theming KLWP and KWGT
Podcast Player Pocket Casts or Podcast Addict
Reddit Client Slide for Reddit, Sync for Reddit or Relay for Reddit
File Explorer MixPlorer (almost all file explorers are good for basic tasks just don't get ES File Explorer)
TV Terrarium TV is great for free TV Shows and Movies also Mobdro for live TV channels
Gallery I use Google Photos so photos don't take up space on my phone
Weather Weather Timeline
Also Takser is great for automating almost anything but is quite hard to use
Get Gboard (previously known as Google Keyboard), I use it and it has the Urdu language.
Gboard is great for swyping actually. Google is pretty good at AI and machine learning and it shows.
You can try using the google keyboard which is less resource heavy than the stock Samsung one.
Maybe it's a bug on their keyboard? Can you try google's keyboard
If you're on Android just install Google Keyboard.
It's probably Gboard (new name of the Google Keyboard). It has multilanguage suggestions since the latest update in December.
In regards to the keyboard, have you taken a look at google's own keyboard? It has solid color options and is much better than LG's keyboard IMO. You can also place a picture in it and make it darker. I'm talking about GBoard.
For OP: Google Keyboard
No dummy, you use the free Google Android keyboard. Not the one that came with your Samsung phone.
Google Keyboard is your friend.
First thing I did was install the Google Keyboard and disable this SwiftThing in the keyboard settings.
It does have an on-screen keyboard, but I don't think it's the same as the Google Keyboard that is available on the Play Store (this one), which is the default for Android?
There are also a bunch of other official keyboard from Google that I'd really like to use on the Chromebook (for other languages), and learning how to get the main Google Keyboard working would hopefully get those other ones working as well!
Edit: added link to play store
Then blame your carrier and/or device manufacturer, and install a different keyboard. The Google keyboard works this way, and the stock android keyboard should work this way if one of the modifications your carrier/mfr made didn't change it. It works on my phone and on my tablet.
Alternatively, you can copy/paste a linebreak from elsewhere.
Have you tried using a different keyboard app? Google Keyboard for example?
This one : [link]
When you hold spacebar, it allow you to choose the keyboard (for exemple to select swiftkey), BUT it also list other google keyboard language that you have enabled in option (disable system language option to enable multiple language).
You can use different keyboard apps, which would change the look and behavior of the keyboard.
For example, Google Keyboard and SwiftKey Keyboard might be different in terms of auto-correct aggressiveness.
Install the Google keyboard.
Swiping left starting at the backspace button deletes whole words based on how many letters you swipe across on the keyboard. Swipe to "M" to delete one whole word, swipe to the "N" to delete two whole words, the "B" to delete three and so on.
Additionally, swiping across the space bar scrolls the cursor.
They have also added a compact one handed keyboard setting for people with larger screens.
Then download this or another keyboard off the play store
Seriously? It's in the release notes.
I'm sorry but there's no easy way to downgrade without at least using a computer. Search for your phone model along the word downgrade on Google and you should be able to find a procedure.
I'm not sure which version of Android you're now at, so I can't tell exactly why your don't see your notifications on your lock screen.
For your keyboard issue you could try a different keyboard like Google Keyboard.
For YouTube video links you might have set a default program by accident to handle these links automatically. You can go in your system settings, go to the app section and sekect the app you're having issues with. You'll be able to clear default actions for specific links for that app.
To access Reddit are you using an app or the mobile website? If it's the later it might be the web browser that doesn't render correctly. Are you using Google Chrome?
Isso depende do teclado, o teclado (predefinido) pode variar da marca e nem sempre tem um bom corretor ortográfico.
Experimenta o Google Keyboard ou Swiftkey.
Uso o Swiftkey não tenho problemas grandes com corretor ortográfico, mesmo palavras que não exista ele aprende com o que escreves.
Em relação aos espaços isso pode ser configurado, colocar ou não automaticamente um espaço ao inserir pontuação.
Só não uso Swiftkey num terminal ou para escrever algo mais técnico, para isso uso Hacker's Keyboard.
> would a third party keyboard come with better autocorrect?
Absolutely. That's one of the main benefits of Swiftkey! These aren't just "skins" for some underlying OS keyboard.
3rd party keyboards on Android are fully fleshed out apps. The OS launches them when you require text input, and the keyboard will forward key presses to OS. Everything in between launch and sending those inputs can vary greatly from keyboard to keyboard.
On your G3, have you even tried other keyboards other than the stock one? It probably came with a keyboard made by LG for that phone. You can install Google's stock keyboard. You can try Swiftkey. Or Swype. Or GO.
Not yet. I haven't. But the following seem to be the current alternatives:
You could also just hook up a regular USB keyboard or Bluetooth to your droid. If your Android supports OTG (many do), you just plug in a cheap dongle and then attach your regular keyboard.
If you're connected to google play and have no keyboard, you could try going to the google play site on your computer and remotely having it install google keyboard, it might set it to the default keyboard.
You need a compatible keyboard, make sure the Google Keyboard version is 4.1.23103.2297020
Or tell someone to send you a new emoji, the taco for example.
edit: the one I have is 4.1.23103.2419427 with the new emojis in 6.0.1
Shock?.. I'm using default one, here it is [link]
I use the stock Google Keyboard on my Nexus 6. The swipe function works great for me. You can add it to any Android phone though: [link]
Hey OP, if you aren't already, I suggest using the Google Keyboard
It looks, and runs much better than all other keyboards on android.
You can install Google's keyboard from the Play Store these days. It's pretty reliable, has swipe typing, and dictation built in. I'd recommend trying it out!
Well there is other keyboard apps you can download, and most of the good ones are free now, like Google keyboard, Fleksy + GIF Keyboard, and SwiftKey Keyboard + Emoji.
Try out these, and see if it helps.
I personally use the Google keyboard but any other keyboard will probably fix the issue.
Download a different keyboard!
Google keyboard is great: [link]
Are you using the Google keyboard from the play store?
The default Samsung keyboard on the S5 is really intrusive, but switching to the Google Keyboard, it's barely noticeable which pleases the lovers and haters in my family.
The stock Google one... [link]
that's odd, anyway you can just install the google keyboard again: [link]
Sounds like it's just a swipe input method.
You can swap the keyboard out for any one you'd like. I recommend Google's.
The Google Keyboard has a much nicer typing sound compared to the AOSP keyboard, but they look and work pretty much the same.
I've tried many keyboards over the years, have been Swiftkey for 2,5 years and recently switched to Google Keyboard, because of the seperation of languages, which was important for me. I can recommend both!
If you install Google Keyboard, it'll be exactly the same as it was on your Nexus (except larger). I thought about switching back to that when I got my Note 4, but as it turns out, I like having the number row on the Samsung keyboard a little better.
For Maps, did you accidentally tap the compass button? I don't have the app open right this second, but I think there's a compass icon toward the upper right part of the screen which can be used to lock the map's orientation. There's nothing Note 4 specific here, although I do feel like Maps runs a little slower in general on my Note 4 as compared to most other phones.
Smart lock was excellent, I'll give you that one. I've basically given that a pass since the fingerprint reader works reasonably well most of the time, but once Lollipop is released, I'll definitely be switching back over to the Smart Lock feature.
One tidbit on the launcher: if you haven't already, give Action Launcher or Nova Launcher a try. I used the Google Now Launcher when I first got my Note 4, but quickly realized that it was a huge waste of screen space. Both Action Launcher and Nova Launcher pretty closely mimic the look and feel of the Google Now Launcher, but also allow you to add a row/column to the home screen.
Google's keyboard is similar and doesn't have those markings. Its on the play store.
Settings > Language & input > Google keyboard > Block offensive words
Install Gboard or Swiftkey
It's possible that your phone's manufacturer made their own shitty keyboard and replaced Google's with it.
You can install Google's Gboard to get this option (screenshot)
Try GBoard ([link])
It allows you to move cursor with swipes on the space button
You need to download Gboard <em>by Google</em> on your Android if it does not come pre-installed which it does on newer Nexus devices and all Pixels then when the keyboard is open just say "Okay Google"/"Hey Google" or press the microphone on the top right of the keyboard and start speaking.
Other than voice to text it is a great keyboard with some great features like themes, one handed mode, swipe typing and others.
Google already makes an Android keyboard.
Compatible with at least Jelly Bean. JB is the lowest version device I have...
> Android is still geared for a hardware keyboard and they haven't worked on screen input yet.
It's not that.
But I disagree that the Chinese phones are the worst - my last one was better than the Moto G I have now.
You could try Google Keyboard if that's not what you have installed at present.
If they're on mobile, it might be a "thing" with their keyboard app.
Reddit app uses the "system default" keyboard application installed.
For example I have 3 different keyboard apps installed on my phone.
But there are thousands upon thousands to choose from. These are only from Google Play. Apple store opens another realm of possibilities.
then shut up and install:
And quit your bitching about privacy.
Are you using the Google Keyboard microphone key dictation within a text field? If so, you can continuously talk, and it will continuously take dictation until you X out of the dictation. If it's not working, install a fresh version of Google Keyboard on the tablet.
Why are you so scared of your wife? You were trying to help her out. If she doesn't respect that, she doesn't respect you, and you should re-think how your relationship functions.
