    Does it work in landscape? Every example I see shows it in portrait mode.

    Thanks for the link. It looks promising. I prefer Swype but Swiftkey has potential especially when I use the physical keyboard on the Droid.

    Thanks! Looks wonderful. I don't use Swype often as the HTC IME keyboard is my favorite. This seems to be the best of both worlds!

    Using it on my phone now, pretty cool and I can see it being real fast once you get used to picking the prediction words and it learns from you.

    yup, just tested, and it seems it's a no go. also, i don't have teh box checked for hardware keyboard, but the suggestions still show up anyways.

    still, it's scary good. i've typed several whole sentences just by typing the first word and then a letter here and there.

    Yep, it doesn't respond to alt for numbers. You have to hold down the alt key as you type a number for it to work. It is a bug.

    SwiftKey works great on touchscreen, but some of the buttons mess up when using the physical keyboard?
