    so, my thus are huge, and I keep making tips when I use store, and I was writing if there was a bigger keyboard layout for it or something that someone made? like a new skin that makes the letters larger?

    ABOVE is how I type without having to go in and correct it, this is the spell checked version, where I type really slowly or delete a LOT. usually make more errors, too.

    so, my thumbs are huge, and I keep making typos when I use swype, and I was wondering if there was a bigger keyboard layout for it or something that someone made? like a new skin that makes the letters larger?

    I agree I have the same issue. I cant see where I am swyping because f my thumbs and seem to be trying to look over my thumb to do it. I can't get used to it so i just use the regular keyboard.

    It takes time, I think everyone does that at first but you end up getting good at it like anything else.

    I've been using it for a month :(, I'll try a bit longer because I really like the idea of it, maybe I need to mess with the dictionary and add my own words/remove ones I don't use like mcgrath or izaak.

    That really does help. And I guarantee if you give it some more time you'll never go back because you'll be texting so fast. I love swype if you can't tell lol.

    you really have to mess with the setting to get it to your liking. i was making all sorts of mistakes before, but i go the sliders just right now so i dont make many mistakes any more.

    i love me some swype :)

    I really enjoy the swipe feature. It does take some getting used to though.

    Maybe I'm doing it wrong, but I Swype using my pointer finger. I guess I could use my thumb, but I'd never thought about it. Though, I find the phone a wee-bit too big to try to Swype and hold in the same hand. I don't do too bad with the Pointer Finger Method.

    I started using Swype as a beta on my Eris and was pleasantly surprised to see that Swype was already loaded on the X.

    I can't do it with the same hand unless it's a really short response, left hand is holding my phone while my right is swyping, granted I'm laying down so it's probably harder just because of that to begin with.
