    Swype, contrary to most people, has actually solidified my usage of the physical keyboard. Swype is obviously my choice when in portrait mode.... it's great for texting and simple text entry. When I need to put in usernames, passwords, or any other specific things (sometimes I don't feel like tapping out entries in Swype) the physical keyboard is my go-to entry method. I love having the choice of both :)

    I love Swype. Give it a chance for about 4 hours to get use to it and you'll love it too.

    Swype is perfect for the portrait keyboard, though sometimes I have a hard time making it go away when I'm filling out forms (sign in, etc). The only feature I miss is the autocapitilization.

    I wish there was a way to keep swype for portrait, and make the landscape keyboard default back to the stock. I never use the physical keyboard anymore, which is funny since it's one of the reasons I wanted the Droid to begin with.

    Personally I love swype. There is a similar application in the market called ShapeWriter, however there is no comparison between it and swype. Swype is way better.

    Once you get used to using it, you can type incredibly fast. I am sure however that there are some who may not like it, and it may not be for everyone. You either like it or you dont.
