I often have trouble with the on-screen keyboard, e.g. pressing the wrong keys etc.

I looked around and found that ThickButton looks like a good solution; but sadly it is not compatible with my Galaxy Nexus.

What can I do to get rid of mistyping keys?

There are any number of alternative keyboards in the Play Store. What have you tried? – Al E. Jan 11 '13 at 15:42
What I tried is the link I put in the word here that you have corrected for me – Nam G VU Jan 11 '13 at 16:15
I think when editing, please make sure your correction is better in grammar and meaning. You changed mine a lot hic – Nam G VU Jan 11 '13 at 16:15
Not that much, but I did try to make it a question about a problem you're trying to solve instead of just trying to find an app. Edit back anything that I may have gotten wrong. – Al E. Jan 11 '13 at 16:17
If all you've tried is the app you linked to, then my suggestion is: check out the Play Store and try out some of the other keyboards that are available. – Al E. Jan 11 '13 at 16:19

If you can get the APK of Thumbnail, you can try to sideload it on your Galaxy Nexus.

You can try Swiftkey Keyboard, it works well for me as I have fat fingers too.

Hacker's Keyboard allows you to customize the size of the keyboard up to 3/4s of the screen. Their suggestions dictionary is also pretty good at deciphering typos.

Alternatively, mash the keyboard with your palm and obtain a special typing wand. ;)

I have tried Hacker's Keyboard as your suggestion but the keyboard UI is not very need to me and ... I don't like it. Thanks anyway! – Nam G VU Jan 12 '13 at 9:00
