Top alternative keyboards for your Android tablet

Tablet Keyboard Free

Tablet Keyboard Free is laid out similarly to the Thumb Keyboard with just a few minor differences. There are no options (you can't adjust the size of the keyboard, nor can you theme the keyboard), but the default split layout works really well. What I like most about this alternative keyboard (outside of the slit, thumb-friendly layout) is how easy it is to get to some of the alternate keys.
