Looking for a good on screen keyboard suggestion

Going to be (at times) using a tablet monitor so I need an onscreen keyboard that is not used when the main 'board is in operation, but when using the touchscreen monitor the onscreen will pop up when tapping text boxes.

There are two viable options:
onboard
and
maliit-keyboard

Each has advantages and disadvantages, but overall perform well and do their job.

I installed maliit-keyboard via Add/Remove but it does not come up in the Applications tab? I tried onboard but not sure if I like it tbh.
