Dude, you should try it out. I like Shapewriter, but this is much more responsive.

Thanks for the tip, I have been using this for only a few minutes and i think after i get the hang of it, it should be pretty useful.

I got the 100% You magazine today, and it said that Swype is coming to the 3G soon.

I feel less like a thief now.

I'm loving swype on my new 1.2. My Fender does not have it and when I did the install as stated above it came with all kinds of warnings about tracking input like Credit Card info and it scared me I feel better using it on my 1.2 since it's the default without all the warnings!!!!

It only came without the warnings because you didn't install it.

I'm sure that's the case but since I didn't have to read them and acknowledge them, I feel better. I will wait for the Market to publish it and then put it on the Fender

Whoa whoa whoa... it tracks credit card info? My 1.2 came pre-installed with Swype and I got no warnings about that.

Do you mean that it saves strings of text you input so it can learn to predict for you? Because that's very different than "tracking" credit card numbers.

Can someone please clarify?

Thanks

The Android OS says this warning for every new keyboard apparatus that you install, it is just as a precaution just to let you know that what you type could be sent somewhere to like the developer who make the keyboard. But I would dare say any popular keyboard in the Android market or from another reliable source doesn't do this. Since Swype is the default keyboard for v1.2 and Fender it should be ok to install, of course you have to be careful with this type of information.

But if needs be, when prompted to input any passwords or credit card information or anything private long press in the input box, and input box will allow this - the Edit Text menu will come up, select Input method and switch back to the Android Keyboard default that way you'll be safe.

I'm not liking it for times I have to type dollar values, it would keep putting spaces in between the $ and the numbers. I'm sure there's a way to get by this, but I'm not finding any.

I got mine w/o doing anything, I didn't even buy a MyTouch from T-Mo. I bought mine on Craigslist, put in my SIM, and my account recognizes I'm using MT3G and I started getting the promo in mail.
