1. SwiftKey Keyboard+Emoji

You must have already heard about this app or you must be already a user. If you aren’t both then you should definitely give it a try. It has been ranked as an editor’s choice app on the Play Store. That’s definitely worth being at the No.1 position. It has got great predictablity accuracy, corrections, customizations and it personalizes the experience by asking you to allow access to your social accounts. Well, some of you might be scared off, whether this app steals your conversation records. But, it just learns to make your typing efficient. It predicts what I am going to write next, just exactly I do on my social profiles! So, I don’t need to type it all, just tap on the correct suggestions. So, it saves you thousands of keystrokes!

Are you new to the smartphone world and can’t type correctly? Just go to the usage reports inside the app and get your typing heatmap! It shows you how accurately you type. And, it helps you to improve your typing gradually. As the name suggests, it also supports useful Emoji’s.



2. GO Keyboard


This is one of the most popular keyboard apps on the Play Store. It mostly does the same job as SwiftKey, but has a bit less language support. It has got more custom themes and layouts to help you personalize the keyboard’s look. It also supports Pad Mode, compatible with 5″, 7″, 9″ and 10″ tablets.



3. Google Keyboard


It’s the stock Android keyboard, which comes loaded with Android 5.0 Lollipop and on further versions. It’s simple, fast, responsive. It comes with limited customization options. But, it’s the most reliable keyboard for an Android device. However, the suggestions are not that impressive. If you want a light/fast keyboard app, this one’s for you!



4. ai.type Keyboard Free + Emoji


It has got the similar features in it, as the previous keyboard apps had. But, this app comes with an emoji prediction feature, that’s quite impressive! And, you could customize the keyboard layout yourself and if the design is unique enough, you can even share it with the keyboard community to make your design famous all over the world! It also supports quick app support, like being able to use the calculator while you type.


5. Fleksy + GIF Keyboard


This keyboard app allows you to search+send GIFs. If you love using GIF images, then it might be the one you were searching for. It also supports some interesting extensions(invisible keyboard, keyboard shortcuts, Android launcher etc) and customizable options upto an extent.
