    Personally I love swype. There is a similar application in the market called ShapeWriter, however there is no comparison between it and swype. Swype is way better.

    Once you get used to using it, you can type incredibly fast. I am sure however that there are some who may not like it, and it may not be for everyone. You either like it or you dont.

    Swype has definitely changed the game, I just wish it looked better/less cluttered.

    Here's a link to a site that you might find useful in general. They have instructions to get alot of the things on your droid that you can't find in the market. (including Swype)

    Swype was interesting but I am used to the layout of keyboards and typing with two hands that I don't really even look at the phone. With Swype I have to look the whole time to make sure I am running my finger over the right letters and don't go to other letters by accident. Also it is always popping up the choose this word thing. The built in word base doesn't recognize abbreviated words.. so for now I won't count it out.. I still play with it every now and then. The concept is really cool, but sticking with my standard on screen and slide out.

    meh. I did the tutorial and I used it for a week. It was excellent for texts and emails and rubbish for everything else. Once my finger got trained to swipe instead of tap, it made it VERY difficult to type in web addresses or email addresses. This was what killed it for me. I went back to the default keyboard and uninstalled swype. I don't really see how they can make it any easier for typing things which are not words (I.E. email addresses and web addresses). That's gonna prove to be this things biggest limitation.

    One thing, you can add commonly used e-mails to the dictionary and if you type in the first couple of letters (without swyping, just tapping the letters) it comes up on the autofill (takes a lot less time)
