5 Best Keyboard Apps for Android (Free)

3 Mins read

We don’t pay so much attention to the keyboard apps we have installed or pre-installed on our devices. Almost all Android users use the default keyboard app which is pre-installed by the mobile company. But, as we are rich in texting our friends, family, and communication via slang is a new trend.

I like my own default keyboard app on my Xiaomi device. Sometimes, you might also feel that what’s the need for another keyboard app? Just like we have a default music player, why we need another music player for Android.

Yes, there’s no need. Many users want their keyboard to be designed the way they want. Or they need to customize in the sense of color, features, etc.

There are plenty of keyboard apps on Google Play Store and which one to use is just confusing. You can trust any unknown third-party app to spy on you. Because there can be keyloggers which can track you or steal your credentials. So, it makes an important decision which keyboard app for your Android device to use?
