Here's the chilling part for me.  I was curious and downloaded google 
handwriting onto my old cheap android tablet.  When I went into the input 
settings, and selected the new method of input, it displays the helpful 
popup window:

This input method may be able to collect all the text you type, including 
personal data like passwords and credit card numbers.  It comes from the 
app Google Handwriting Input.  Use this input method?

I declined to tap "OK".  This is why I've been nervous about installing 
any alternate keyboards.  Many apps "phone home", with information that I 
don't want them to have.
