    I keep getting an error that it can't be used until setup finishes, but when I try to do setup it will not download a language pack (on a strong WiFi, rebooted phone). Swiftkey 3 works fine atm.

    Nevermind, for some reason it downloaded over 4G just fine. Odd, but oh well

    I tried it in Gmail and the address field doesn't work, but the subject and email body fields do work with Flow. It also works in Google+.

    I bet it's a server issue due to the long awaited release
    I'm going to miss the gesture copy/paste of swype and gesture delete of slideit but I'm liking it so far other than missing those.

    It took me like 20 attempts to load the language pack. But up an running now. Its ok. Prediction is still good as the other Swiftkey models. To me, the only thing different with FLOW vs the regular version is just that, the swyping feature.
    One issue i had after installation is that the keyboard will lock on the screen and wont retract back. I had to FC it to get it to reset itself.
    That was real annoying but still going through it.

While the Flow feature is nice, I doubt I will use it much. I can type the word out faster than tracing the word.

    What I do love about the Samsung keyboard, though, is in the implementation on the Note II when you have the stylus out it automatically switches the keyboard to handwriting recognition, and the handwriting recognition works great. It even correctly interprets cursive text, and even if your handwriting is horrible.
    I have noticed similar issues. I don't like the fact that the swiftkey keyboard doesn't have the number row like the Samsung keyboard has. That is a extremely nice feature not having to longpress to get numbers entered into text. At this point I am leaving Swiftkey installed hoping updated will rectify these issues. Until then I think I am going to use the Samsung keyboard.

    Maybe I'm missing something but I think it is not as good as Swype right now in the prediction area. It isn't giving me choices for input and is automatically inserting the 1 choice it does give. I've got it on my Nexus7 and am not really impressed so far. No punctuation as next choice either, my biggest desire for having it over Swype.

    That is the great thing about having Flow from SwiftKey. You can use Flow, but if you don't you can still tap away on the keyboard just like the other SwiftKey keyboards and still get the same predictive text. Now if only they added pen/handwriting support like the Samsung keyboard has for the Note II, then it would be perfect.

    When I first got the Note II, I preferred the Samsung keyboard to SwiftKey purely because of the extra number row. However, I did not like how the Samsung keyboard would predict text, but you then had to click on the word for it to be used. With SwiftKey, it would automatically use the predicted text. That to me is more of a time saver than having to click an extra key to switch to numbers and then back again.
