Bring back Xperia keyboard

I found Xperia keyboard (in my Z3) is better than SwiftKey keyboard (in my XZ3) in term of predictive input for multiple languages. It noticed when I typed in Dutch, so it suggested Dutch words. And the suggested emoticon stayed after typing one word, giving us a chance to use both word and emoticon. But SwiftKey suggests only English for any languages. And the suggested emoticon disappeared after I typed the related word. Disappointing

Re: Bring back Xperia keyboard

@Abracadbra,

 

If you had a Z3 before you could try this, it worked for me on my XZ1C which also came with swiftkey and no Xperia keyboard option.

 

Go to your Google Play Store account - My Apps and Games - Library. When I did this all the Apps that I had on my Z3C but had not installed on my XZ1C where there with an option to install, and Xperia Keyboard was one of them.

 

I have now successfully installed it on my XZ1C and I'm very happy.

 

This may not work on your XZ3, and I suspect that the only reason it worked for me was because I did not transfer any Apps from my old phone to my new one.

try settings->system->language & input->on-screen keyboard->+manage keyboards->activate xperia keyboard.
Pretty sure that's where you can turn it on because that worked for me.

@Abracadabra

Try Google keyboard.

It even accepts (in my case) 3 languages and more or less automatically decides which language to use.

Swiping works perfect on it.

Re: Bring back Xperia keyboard

Thanks for the suggestion.

I'm using it now even for some areas, Xperia keyboard is still the best.
