Formerly known as Google Keyboard, Gboard is still one of the best keyboard apps out there for your Android device. It doesn’t offer a ton of customisability, but you get a lot of features in the app, all for free.

You can type faster by gliding your finger over the keys. Gboard allows sending GIFs and stickers, with the ability to create your own stickers. Moreover, you also get the full power of Google’s predictive text algorithm and machine learning power that builds your dictionary over time.

Gboard users can also use Google Translate functionality in real-time.

For years, SwiftKey was one of the absolute best keyboard apps on the market. It had everything from swipe typing, brilliant predictive text and a dictionary that learned your typing habits and patterns quickly.

While it still has all those features and has only gotten better over time, many users have started using Gboard due to it being the native keyboard app for Android.

Many people are still religious users of SwiftKey and it can be difficult for them to switch to any other app on this list after creating their massive personal dictionaries on the app.

Grammarly is a popular tool used by many on their browsers. It’s a great way to know when you’re making a grammatical error and saves you from making silly typos or mistaking when to use “which” and when to use “that”.

The Grammarly keyboard is a great plugin for your phone. It supports swipe typing and also has great predictive text, but you have to use it for some time for the keyboard to learn your typing habits.

Just like the desktop version, the app also corrects your errors and gives a brief explanation as to what mistake you’re making.

Available for: iOS and Android

Fleksy claims to be the “fastest keyboard” in the world. However, it doesn’t support swipe typing. Instead, it relies on autocorrect to make your typing faster.

Fleksy has a very strong autocorrect feature and it may even autocorrect names if it doesn’t recognise it or it isn’t in the dictionary of the keyboard. However, it does support some nifty add-ons for GIFs, stickers, and emoji.

It also has a feature that allows you to quickly erase an entire word by swiping left on the middle row of the keyboard. The app is good pickup for you if you don’t use swipe typing.

Available for: iOS and Android

As the name suggests, Chrooma Keyboard is a very colourful keyboard app for Android. You can have a flat background, a palette finish, a gradient finish or even 3D buttons on your keyboard.

If you’ve always wanted to customise your keyboard whenever you open a new app, Chrooma does it for you. The keyboard has an auto theming feature that lets it adapt to the colour of the app you’re using. This lets the keyboard turn green for Spotify, different shades of blue for Facebook and Twitter and a grey shade for Netflix.

Unlike Fleksy, you can use swipe typing on Chrooma and it feels very good to use. You can also erase chunks of words or sentences if you keep swiping left on the backspace key.

Available for: Only Android
