Ultra Keyboard is an advanced touch-screen keyboard, with many features geared towards giving you a better Android keyboard experience.
Ultra's tool bar provides a ton of features in a tight space. Flick the tool bar left or right to scroll through the available buttons. Quickly change many settings, navigate through text, cut and paste, change dictionaries, change themes, insert emoticons, and more. Show or hide the tool bar by pressing your device's menu button.
Ultra supports many keyboard themes available from the market, both free and paid. Quickly switch between themes using the tool bar. You can also use Ultra's built-in theme editor to create your own themes, or edit existing ones. Don't like a theme's font? Change it!
Like most keyboards, Ultra suggests words while you type. The suggestions box is designed to be smart, fast, and easy to use, with many unique features. Add custom words to your personal dictionary. Long-press a word, and you can black-list it so it doesn't show up in the suggestions.
Ultra comes with a built-in English language dictionary, but there are other dictionaries available that you can download right from the keyboard.
Type "brb" to quickly type "be right back". There are many built-in replacements, and you can add your own.
Ultra can combine keys so they're easier to press, similar to Blackberry™ phones. For devices that don't have a track pad or built-in navigation, there are arrow keys that let you quickly move the cursor. Easily make the keys taller or shorter.
For devices with multi-touch-capable screens, you can press multiple keys at once. Quickly enter a capital letter by sliding your finger from the shift key. Slide your finger from the view key to enter numbers or symbols.
You won't have to change views just to enter a single number. Hold down certain keys to quickly access secondary and hidden characters.
Have you heard of that popular keyboard that lets you swipe your finger over words, instead of typing each letter? Ultra can do that too.
Speak to Ultra Keyboard. It uses Google's web-based service to transform your spoken words (and punctuation) into text.
Quickly translate your text to dozens of languages.
Activate your camera to see where you're going while you text your friends.
Almost everything in Ultra is customizable. Want to show more suggestions? You can. Don't use a few of the tool bar buttons? Remove them.

Its a really great keyboard but only a 24 hour trial?
I wanted to like this keyboard more but very inaccurate when compared to better KB or smart KB.Still on the hunt for a swype replacement...
Tho this is a nice board, there is something I can't put my finger on that I don't like about it. I find myself switching between boards
Crashed during use, app generated crash report. Sent crash report - email bounced! (firstname.lastname@example.org) Not impressed. Android 2.2 galaxytab
I have the new Ginger Bread keyboard & ultra KB. Both work great. Swift is ok too.
Such a disappointment. The keyboard & features are astounding, but the txt prediction is horrible! And the re-show word suggestions don't work right.
Loads of potential but ultimately fails to deliver in a few key areas.
Better than slideit in every way except text prediction isn't as good. Long hold for punctuation, short/long hold on delete, custom themes all great
Like all the customization but needs better word prediction not as good as swype
