    ICS Swype not capitalizing the letter "i"

    Since I upgraded to ICS I've been having an issue with Swype. It's not enough to make me stop using it, but it's really annoying. Basically, when the letter "i" is used as a pronoun, it should auto-capitalize, but it doesn't. I haven't figured out how to fix this and it's really frustrating. I'm not a grammar Nazi, but I hate having to force my phone to use proper grammar. Has anyone else had this problem and were you able to fix it?

    Yeah, it's a bummer and I don't know why it does it, but you can tap next to the letter and it will give you the choice of the capital I. It may have something to do with the accuracy setting. I have to play around with it when I have a half hour to kill.

    I know I can force it, but I shouldn't have to, it sucks and hopefully it'll be addressed in an update...soon.

    This seems to have started after the upgrade to ICS--I don't think it was that way before. In any case, the easiest way is not to use the alternate words by highlighting the lower-case "i", but rather to just swype up past the keyboard or down to the space bar after entering the "i" (per Swype tips). Still allows continuous motion.

    In spite of settings telling it to automatically put a period if you tap the space twice and to auto capitalize mine is not doing it (along with the "i" mentioned above) since the ics update. Very frustrating indeed.
