    It's called Swype.

    Made by the same developers as T9, only Swype is better.

    Why would you want regular old T9 anyways? There's a full qwerty keyboard on the Droid...

    aTakePhone also has T9-like capability, for searching contacts as well as other uses.

    Why is any question like this considered a valid answer? Different people have different needs/wants. That's why. :icon_rolleyes:

    Failing to understand why someone would choose/prefer an option doesn't make the option invalid. Swype, like anything else, isn't a one-size-fits-all solution. I really like it as well but blindly promoting is is just another form of fanboyism.

    For reasons stated above, better is always subjective, regardless of topic. Swype isn't better to one who doesn't like it.

    I believe I did it right for getting the htc mod on my phone but I don't think it is supported by 2.2 yet help!

    Okay, well excuse me Mr. Basher. I was stating my opinion, and I thought that was legal on forums.

    And no, I don't have to be a fanboy to like an app. That's the latest release from T9, and most people want the latest technology, so I thought I would enlighten him in case he didn't know. However, Swype IS better to one who DOES like it. I'm not a mind reader. It was a suggestion and a valid OPINION.

    Why don't you give some insight to the OP's question instead of looking for people to bash.:icon_rolleyes:
