2. SlideIT Keyboard

This pops out of the Keyboard army as Google Play’s Editor’s choice. Natively you can relate this keyboard with Swype technology used in Samsung phones. Instead of entering text by tapping on the keyboard letters, SlideIT keyboard eases texting by sliding a finger along the keyboard letters, while the words “magically” appear on the screen. Boasting about 30 themes, this one is definitely something to try out for!
