    Handcent finally gets multitouch...

    The app is next to perfect now. Just need to fix the keyboard lag that the Droid has in general.

    Heck, what exactly do you mean by "hand scent". Are you telling us you got some smelly hands by touching too many things?

    1. Where are you getting this from?
    2. What do you gain with multi touch in Handcent? What are you zooming?

    At first I assumed he meant for pics, but 1) don't feel like checking, and 2) You still view it through the gallery or whatever pic app you have, so it makes absolutely no difference.

    I'm getting it from the update that I downloaded an hour ago. It reads key presses if you happen to hold your finger over another letter while typing another too fast.

    Oh, ok. Not really the widely accepted use of the word "multitouch" but it is just that I guess... neat, not really noticed a differencet though.

    Didn't realize Swype was the end-all for text input and SMS apps.

    I'd take the standard keyboard over any of the others (including swipe... blasphemy?!)... although the iphone keyboard is pretty damn accurate.

    I'm with you, I'm not super impressed with swype. I've had to stop and correct more with swype then with the regular keyboard. I have small fingers, so touch screen keyboards aren't a huge problem for me given the size of the Droid's screen.

    Will have to check my phone, don't think I got a notification for updating handcent yet. Though I'm not super impressed with that yet, but trying to give it more time since everyone says I should get it.
