    been discussed. I'm not convinced it will do anything since the top spacing of keys is still close.

    Much like most topics on any forum...but for those who haven't seen it, its new to us.

    Some people live on internet forums while others only check in occasionally

    Shouldn't off-topic posts go in a new thread?

    This thread is about the new keyboard, not forum ethics. The Crocodile keyboard looks worth trying to me, I've got big fingers. I have not heard of the Swipe keyboard mentioned in one of the links, has anyone tried that one?

    Allright gentlemen 10 minutes later of deleting your bickering has left me spent. Now get along or move along.

    I am armed and dangerous.

    Please stay on topic fellas I don't want to have to shoot anyone.

    Thanks.

    I'm not sure I see the benefit of the 'crocodile' keys. They're still spaced the same... as far as the top half of the keys...

    I'll def give it a shot... but truthfully I love the stock on screen. I'm very accurate with it.

    Keep up the info if anyone tries this keyboard out!

    i'll try this out, no doubt (if its free :eek: )
    however, i want someone to make a keyboard app that looks the same as the stocker but just has multi-touch. I can fly on the iphone keyboard, but on the droid keyboard i make mistakes cuz i move too fast and it doesnt recognize all my button presses :(

    MessageEase Keyboard - how about a port to the droid?

    I used the keyboard from the link below on my old WinMo phone, in portrait mode when the keyboard has to be small it was excellent, in a few days I got faster and more accurate than on the QWERTY layouts. It took some getting used to, its very different, but by using swipes instead of taps for many characters the chances for typos was greatly reduced because the starting area for any gesture was very large. It looks like it would be too big a learning curve, but the most frequently used letters are just taps on the 9 large squares. I guess this post is no help to us Android users since this keyboard is not out for the Droid. But I'm going to email them and ask about it, if enough interested parties do that maybe they'll bite!

    I too am looking forward to trying it out. Not fully satisfied w/ the virtual keyboards thus far.

    I'm actually pretty happy with the virtual keyboards that the Droid came with but I'm always willing to try others. Especially if its free (kinda doubt it).

    Thanks for the heads up on this, i'm willing to give it a try if it's not too much $$... I don't think it's going to be free since the owner of the concept is after money here and nothing more.
