Are you using the multi touch keyboard or Swype?

    I'm just wondering on the consensus here.

    I think the screen is so large that it is actually harder to type with Swype and easier to type on the touch keyboard in landscape mode. What are your guys thoughts? I keep switching back and forth.

    Swiftkeys :D

    After a couple of days using it, I rarely have to type more than 2 or 3 characters, and it'll know the word I'm looking for!

    Multi-touch....came from the iPhone and it's all I've known for 3 years. In fact, I wasn't gonna get an Android unless it had multi-touch features and the X came out at the right time.

    I can't get the hang of Swype and don't really have the desire to take the time to

    Both. But mostly multi-touch; can't spell fast enough for Swype (esp for those words that I forgot to spell. lol)

    Smart Keyboard Pro. The spacebar on moto's keyboard is too narrow for me, so I wind up hitting . half the time. Though Swype is nice when I'm only using one hand. I haven't tried swiftkeys either.

    I don't know how I ever typed/texted without Swype. It's up there on my list of "Most Awesome Things Ever Invented".

    I have been using Swype for the last couple days and really like it. And with they Swype keyboard you can still type normally just like the multi touch keyboard which is alot easier to do in landscape.

    yeah this is my issue I either blank on how to spell words or I forget where a letter is on the keyboard and I move my finger around trying to find it. Either way it usually ends up suggesting ridiculously long words. I imagine it will get better once I get use to it.

    Ive used swype exclusively for 3 months now(DInc then DX) I thought I was typing faster with it. After doing some tests, I'm actually a lot slower with swype.

    I really like swype, but realizing it actually slows me down because I type faster with my two thumbs, rather than one thumb/finger swyping made me switch. :D

    So, my answer is multi-touch as of about 20 mins ago. lol

    Can you guys tell me your swype settings? On the incredible I found it to be very accurate and on the X, even set on high accuracy, it seems to take longer as opposed to multitouch input

    I like both, but I have been using the mulitouch keyboard a lot since I have already used swype a lot. I like using something new.

    I haven't changed the swype settings at all and I've been loving it from day one. I came from a physical qwerty so using one pointer finger on swype is easier than trying to thumb type with no buttons.

    Swype is the bomb. My only small gripe is that here in Ole' Miss it's humid as a rainy day in hell and sometimes my thumb will stick to the screen protector while trying to Swype. That puts a big damper on my fun :\

    Swype. I "type" a lot faster with it.

    I am thinking of going back to SwiftKey Beta after trying Swype. Swype is cool, no doubt. It's a very clever idea. But I find it to be more "work" in terms of motion, especially for long words. And it seems to guess wrong much of the time. SwiftKey was spooky accurate after I had used it for awhile.

    tried swype; too hard to get used to. fingers don't always glide on the screen.
    tried smart keyboard (not pro). it doesn't have the word suggestions.

    i like the MT keyboard most but the space bar is too short and i hit the full stop a lot more than i care to. guess muscle memory will "fix" this lol.
