    I'd heard about it, so I installed it yesterday to try it out. I'd been reading less than stellar reports about the implementation on the Omnia2, so I was a bit hesitant; however I figured that there was nothing to lose.

    Long story short, I absolutely love it. It seems less than intuitive for approximately as long as it takes to do the tutorial the first time. After that, it just seems, well, FAST........

    Anymore reviews or tutorials on this? I'm interested. Any downsides like lag or reboots?

    its ok for me so far takes a little while to get use to heck try it if you don't like it it can always be removed right. but the tutorial it comes with is pretty good. i haven't experienced any lag yet. but like i said its just my opinion there just give it a shot.

    i downloaded and installed the program. my only concern was the disclaimer that states our swipes including passwords can be monitored. is anyone else worried or am i being paranoid.

    You are being paranoid ... that warning comes up for any thing that interfaces with key input, because it COULD also log the keystrokes.

    If you see that on an app that is NOT a keyboard, then yes it is a huge red flag ... but for every keyboard type app, you will get that warning.

    I just hope the dev releases the final version with the option to only use swype when in vertical mode. I still prefer the regular keyboard in landscape, but you can't beat swype for one handed typing when holding the phone vertically!

    It also works like a regular keyboard too with added features (you can type normally on it too). What does the stock android keyboard do that this one does not in horizontal mode?

    I installed this, but I can't find it. If I go into astro and open it up again, it gives me the option to unistall or launch. If I hit launch it says "Main activity not found com.swype.android.inputmethod"

    ?



    edit: nvm

    It feels a bit more crowded when typing normally. I just prefer the layout and speed of the Android keyboard in landscape mode. I am not the only one who hopes that the dev offers this option in the future as I have seen others mention it on this forum.

    I get the same error "Main activity not found com.swype.android.inputmethod". I am using the latest 2.1 rom...is anyone else using this rom having issues with sywpe? Soft reset does not fix.
