Perfect Keyboard has a lot of nerve calling itself “Perfect” considering that nothing can ever truly be perfect (except for bacon, of course). But as far as Android keyboard replacements go, Perfect Keyboard makes a very good effort towards living up to the lofty expectations its name sets.

We reviewed Perfect Keyboard last June, and the app has since been updated to add several improvements and optimizations for users looking for a custom keyboard.

The most recent update added next word prediction and improved support for Android 4.0+ devices. The next word prediction is convenient way to have Perfect Keyboard guess which word you meant to type and enter it with a tap. It’s one of many shortcuts, including the ability to have a string of letters become a phrase. In other words, I can set the app to know that when I type “oktty,” it should change the text to say, “Okay, talk to you later.”

There are plenty of other ways to customize Perfect Keyboard. The app supports custom dictionaries and adjusted auto-correction, multiple keyboard views, split layouts for tablets, and adjustable height and width of keys. Heck, you can even theme or skin it all.
