Android has a great default keyboard but you need to go through some tough time when you want to something other than just type like using emotions, for text navigation. If you are one of those people who want navigation arrows, emotions, pre-configured domain extensions buttons and better prediction ability then TouchPal is the best keyboard for you. Forget about getting a paid keyboard. You get ton of features in a single app and it’s completely free to download and use from the Android market. I bet you’ll just love this app.
TouchPal is a keyboard Android App which plans to make typing much easier on your Android device. The keyboard layout is awesome and the swyping is as smooth as it can get. The application has great prediction ability that will enable you to type much faster and with great accuracy. The prediction ability of the application allows you to type the wrong letters and still be able to make the write words come up in the screen. Which makes it much easier Swype in the keyboard much fun than the traditional Swype keyboards. And this has features of multiple keyboards like Swype, arrow keys,prediction, dictionary and voice typing all in the same application.
The voice typing feature will allow you to type with your voice, however it will need an active internet connection to their server to be able to convert voice into typing.
Talking about features, you’ll love the emotions tab which you can use immediately from a touch of a button to enter the cool pre-defined s mileys.

And a simple mistake in choice of Smiley could cause a whole lot of trouble. So you won’t be late to give your friend a smiley on Facebook,Twitter, Google+ or while chatting online with friends.
TouchPal used about 20 mb of memory on my device so think if your Android device can handle that. You also can disable some of the features you don’t need from the TouchPal settings to reduce some memory usage on your device. You can check and edit settings from Android Keyboard Settings or You can directly go to the TouchPal keyboard settings page through the gear icon on the TouchPal Keyboard.
