    Is anyone working on a MT keyboard for Android? I'd gladly pay for a simple app that did nothing but change the stock keyboard to a working MT keyboard.

    I've been begging for this since day 1... and yet no one ever seems to develop :(

    I think I've made about 3 or 4 threads about it too, lol

    maybe it will come once 2.1 is out officially and the 2.1 SDK is optimized for Droid.

    honestly with the swype keyboard out there, there really isn't much of a necessity anymore, but I too would like a multi touch stock keyboard just as an option

    The version of swype that is out now will continue working.... there is no need for anything else.


    There isn't a time limit built into it.... :)

    Even if it was going to expire, which I highly doubt, I'm sure its expiration would coincide with the official release of the swype keyboard

    I doubt if the leaked copy was ever intended to expire.

    Even if it does when it's released onto another android phone we'll have it again...

    They really need to put it in the market - I would pay for it.

    I like swype just fine, but I want a multi touch keyboard. Our phone is multi touch capable, so give us a multi touch keyboard!

    I'm getting tired of people mentioning swype everytime a MT keyboard is mentioned. I've tried swype. I hate swype. I want a MT keyboard.

    No more mentioning swype in this thread! :icon_evil:

    I completely agree... any time any keyboard is mentioned, the first thing out of people is "SWYPE"

    This is in no way bad mouthing the swype KB... but there are those of us who would much rather type on a good mutli-touch KB... which we can use BOTH hands with GOOD speed

    If you hold down a key on the current virtual keyboard, and then proceed to hit another key while the first is pressed, you will not get the second key press. When you release the second key, it just repeats the first. We want an MT keyboard (pretty sure the iphone has one) that can take multiple key presses simultaneously. This is a huge bonus to people who type fast.
