Android is all about choice and customization -- and that extends to the way you type on your device.
You can just use whatever keyboard came preloaded on your phone or tablet (it often varies by manufacturer). Or you can use Google's own Android keyboard, which was released last week as a standalone app.
But beyond those native options lies a sea of possibilities -- feature-laden keyboards that offer advanced functionality and customizable interfaces. Installing a new keyboard can be one of the most meaningful upgrades you'll ever make to your device.
These are what I've found to be the best Android keyboard apps around.
