    Seems like a pretty weird concept, but definitely very interesting

    ShapeWriter is a similar program for Android that you can get in the market now. I've downloaded the 30 day free trial version and I can say it works really well and it gets better with extended use.

    ivan, thanks for that, I knew I saw an app in the Market that does this already. Do you find this more accurate than tapping? Faster than two thumbs? Seems gimmicky, slow, and prone to overshooting the intended key since your momentum is across the keyboard rather than down toward it.

    For me it's just a fast, if not faster after a day of getting used to it. It's very accurate for most words, but sometimes it way off due to me not swiping the keys correctly. I'd imagine it will become easier to use as time goes by. It seems VERY strange at first.

    PS - You can also use it as a regular keyboard too.

    Hard to go wrong with the free trial app. I'd encourage anyone to check it out.
