We recently received a suggestion to try out the Adaptxt Keyboard so I decided that I would download it and and try it for a while. After using it I found its suggestions to be quite useful although unfortunately the bad outweighs the good when it comes to this keyboard.

First i’ll tell you the good things about this keyboard. Like i said before, its suggestions are quite useful and accurate and it gives you a lot at once which is nice. It comes with two themes to chose from and quite a  bit of customization and personalisation that  is possible. You can choose whether or not auto correction is on or whether or not error correction is on, plus there is a built in personal dictionary so that your own abbreviations can be added to what it predicts for you while your typing.

Now lets move onto the bad. For starters it does not automatically put a space in for you after you enter a comma or a period like almost every other keyboard nowadays does and for fast typers it is a necessity. Also something that really irritated me personally about this keyboard was the fact that the question mark is a secondary key on the main keyboard which means that you have to hold a key down for a second or two for the question mark to get typed. And on top of that the question mark is in a very random spot on the keyboard. But the biggest problem this keyboard has is that it lags a lot. If you type fast then dont expect to like this keyboard because you defiantly wont. There is an annoying delay between typing a key and the letter actually getting typed which ruins the keyboard completely. It stops you from being able to type fast at all, you have to slow down and type nice and slow so that it does not lag on you and ruin what your trying to type.

I understand that this keyboard is still in its beta stage and if the developers of this app can just eliminate the lag problems and make the keyboard a little bit more user friendly when the final version is released then this has the potential to be an amazing keyboard.
