The Go Dev Team continues to innovate and this time they’re entering the virtual keyboard arena with their latest iteration, Go Keyboard.  At first glance, I almost dismissed it as just another keyboard, however, I believe the application brings quite a few new features to the game and just might be worth taking a look at.  The software aims to make you a quick, better and smarter typer using its accurate dictionary, smooth key strokes and multiple languages and layouts.  You can import contacts easily and there’s even support for fantasy text output and support for Emoji in any application that you can type in.  Switch from a number of themes and skins with ease so as to stay out of the ever too often visited stale department.

Further features like auto-memory and correction when typing, multi-touch support and slide input (Swype like) all assist in accurate and easy input.  And to top it all off, the Go Dev Team added gesture support to make things easier.  You can swipe left or right to activate a cube like effect to switch keyboard layouts and swiping down closes the keyboard entirely.  Hit the break to check out some more screen shots, snatch the QR code and to see all the languages supported in this release.  Don’t forget to let us know what you think of it in the comments below.  Does it compare to popular keyboards like Swype, Betterkeyboard and Thumb Keyboard?  We’ll let you be the judge.   » Read the rest
