    I need an app to type.

    Phones. At best the touchscreen keyboard covers 99% of the screen and I have to type blind, at worst everything centers and I can never scroll up and down (I can't quote anything and everything else). Changing browser helps a bit but I get random crashes.
    Pls save me.

    I use Hacker's Keyboard. Its not in the same league as Swiftkey, but still quite simple and usable.

    I use Swiftkey. It's not bad, but it's not as amazing as everyone makes out.
    I tried swype before swiftkey and it was basically the same, but at that point (many years ago) it used to much memory on my phone. Other than that they were interchangeable.

    If you are worried about screen space, Flesky has transparent keyboards.
    Or Minuum has a one line keyboard that actually works surprisingly well if you give it a day or two to get used to it. (it's very good at guessing what you're typing, but not quite as good as swiftkey/swype on predicting whole words before you've typed them out).
    Even the stock android keyboard has pretty much caught up with swiftkey these days imho.

    Of course, whichever one you've used the most will be the one that's built up personalization for you.

    It's a bit better with swiftkey on and most of the time I can see what the hell I'm typing. Can't scroll up and down though. At times I need to fix typos and it always gets the upper lines and won't move from there.

    No, also now I set a medium zoom to minimize the issues but it's still annoying as hell.
    And unistalled swiftkey because it was a bit heavy on my phone.:/ while swipe won't run (...), looking for flesky 's free version oh god I can't see shit again after a single line.

    I found a decent solution, there's a default app to type anything from messages to memos, it doesn't mess things up and all I do is to copy and paste. It's off line so wots are not a problem and I can scroll down and everything.

    I think I need an antivirus or so my phone says when I use clipconverter or browse a specific gaming forum I tend to avoid now. It's adv but pages open up and direct me everywhere. I unistalled some apps and it got a lot better except for clipconverter and this other forum and its tapatalk crap.

    Wait... How? Swiftkey is crazy lean except for the DB size, you have an SD card right?

    Oooh, phone from 2010 June and from samsung who love to install so much bloatware that the phone drowns, I feel know your pain.

    Yeah, My phone is a year newer its inception despite being the same CPU, and as such it was a mid-to-budget phone when it came out, but it handles Swiftkey like a dream. But man, I'd never buy a samsung phone, they install so much crap on their phones which is constantly running in the background and all in the name of proprietary branding and trying to leach your social networking through their adware.

    Samsung have irretrievably sullied their name with me.

    Don't install antivirus, use opera mini, its like a internet comdom as you are not running their code but rather an image of the website and it'll save you alot of bandwidth too, and while you cant do secured things through opera mini lets be honest mobile banking and crap like that is a security hazard anyway and your best bet is to use the banks app.

    Opera mini is great but I need two things:
    -How not to capture the website images in the final image to load even faster;
    - How to go actual browser mode to type in this one box since google and everything else works (with a thumb tap);
