Poll results: Which Android keyboard are you using?
There are a lot of great Android keyboard choices at the Play Store, in case you don't like your stock one, as the ability to change the stock on-screen keyboard that comes with your phone, for a better one made by a third-party developer, is a big part of Android's open experience. That is why we asked you last week which of the many stock or third-party Android keyboard choices are you using on your phone or tablet.

Out of close to 2000 respondents, more than 40% are using just one keyboard, and it is the resident Editor's Choice at the Play Store - SwiftKey. We've put SwiftKey first in our roundup of the greatest Android keyboards for a reason, and it seems that most of those who responded, agree that it can hardly get any better now that it comes for free. The second most popular answer is that almost 30% of the respondents are completely satisfied with whatever keyboard comes with their device out of the box, and who can blame them, considering that Android overlays are getting more sophisticated by the day, offering gesture-typing and text prediction with their default keyboards, while Google's own Android keyboard is greatly, too, especially the edition that comes with the newest Android L project. In fact, we suspect that the checkmark "Other," which took the third place with more than 10% of respondents, mostly went to the Android L keyboard, which had an easy way to be installed until recently, before Google took it down from the Play Store

Out of all other third party keyboards, besides SwiftKey, it was Swype and TouchPal that took a notable share, and it's easy to see why, considering how pretty and versatile those two entrants are. For now, it seems that unorthodox keyboard arrangements, like those of Fleksy or Minuum, have too steep of a learning curve for most users to bother with as a daily driver.
