    I'm getting a lot better at it. I'm using it as much as I can then switching back to swype when I get frustrated which seems to be a good tactic.

    I actually think its pretty fun to use! Ive mostly got the hang of the mechanics of it, its just about learning where the letters are. I stopped having to angle the phone to see what was sitting beneath my thumb by watching the popup that is above the keyboard to see where everything was.

    Who else is stickin it out?

    I am :)

    I bought it the first day, stayed with it for a couple of days.
    But after I got frustrated when typing a large sms I switched back to swype and
    unistalled it. I did download it back a few days ago, but I find it hard to use on large sms's. The reason why I installed it back was the gestures. I LOVE that feature!
    Swype should have it to!

    Sorry cabbie, the learning curve is just way too steep.

    For those that want to checkout this app, here's their YouTube video: 8PEN.

    I recently got it. A little hard to get used to but I'm giving it a try.

    Trying. But not as intuitive as I had hoped.

    the ONLY issue i've had so far is not being able to see whats under my thumb. it's kind of a dealbreaker for me. i have been trying though!
