    I want to thank this forum for turning me on to swype. I love it:icon_ banana:

    I was a slow, begrudging texter. But with swipe I text often, using whole sentences.
    I have become so fast, and it amazes me how right it can be, even with miss spelled words (which I do often). That being said, there are times where a simple word isn't recognized after 2 or 3 attempts. luckily this is not that often, and I can just punch it in the old way.

    By far my favorite app!:gotmyvote:

    +1 Swype is GREAT

    I know what you mean though about it not recognizing words sometimes....like "don't" turns out to be "font" for some reason....someone else also mentioned that same word the other day on here actually...

    I have it but I only use it sparingly so far... It's frustrating that it doesn't know the larger words... I know you can make it learn those words so it would get better over time, I just have to mess with it more.. Fun app though :)

    That's weird because I find the larger the word, the more accurate it is. (decreases possibilities). in fact when I'm showing off the phone (especially to I phone owners) I use large words because I can swype quickly and the accuracy is amazing. Oh the envious looks I get!:icon_ devil:

    ^+1, I've had little to no problem with 'larger words'... course they do have to be spelled correctly:icon_ devil: which undoubtedly causes problems for a LOT of people now a days (myself included, too many years of relying on spell check, :rofl3:).

    Is there a version out yet that will capitalize the first word of a sentence AND create a period and space when hitting space twice?

    The absence of these two things perplexes me.

    Autocap I don't think so, but for period + space, I just swype from the period to the space bar. Seems easy enough. Even in SW I don't double-tap space; I just tap the period once.

    +1 for swype. I do wish it had the option to only work in portrait and have the android keyboard in landscape because I can type much faster on swype in portrait and in landscape I am quicker with the android keyboard.

    I used swype for about a week but went back to the standard keyboard. As fast as it can be to type, I found myself spending more time correcting swype's mistakes than it took to just type it in, mainly with the small words. It was also annoying when doing URLs in since it would add the space. I type primarily in landscape mode anyways and the type ahead is quick enough for me. Swype was nice in portrait mode where the keys are hard to accurately hit though.

    I believe it is still in beta and you must download form them directly. I believe you can google Swype to get their website.

    None of the above. The currently available version is a bootleg. You cannot get it straight from Swype -- right now they are selling to OEMs only. They do say that they will make it available to end users at some point in the future.

    On the other hand, the tone of their comments ("our lawyers tell us to say...") I get the impression they're not really unhappy about the bootleg, but they won't actually come out and say that. I'm sure it creates buzz for them, and that's not a bad thing.

    I got it on the first TRY! :icon_ banana:

    I am a Swype black belt. The tutorial that it comes with is pretty handy

    Alpharetta Alpharetta Alpharetta Alpharetta

    I just typed it in four times in a row, no problem.

    First you type the word out punching in the letters. Then when the four selections come up, select the word. Now try typing it. Should work every time.

    You won't find it in the market. It was leaked out by the developer to get interest. They have an OEM game plan where it would be packaged with particular phones. If you do a search, you may be able to find the thread that gave instructions on how to load it, if it's still available.

    I believe that was all showboating. I believe they wanted a Droid buzz in the hope that Motorola/Google would OEM it in the future. I understand their game plan, but think they're missing an opportunity. JMHO
