    So we desperately need this ported over to froyo? I have swiftkey at the moment and it sucks, and lags like crazy. Please drop any information you have here. I know this has been ported for root, but what about us non-root folks?

    Thanks in advance!


    I realize that the title may be misleading. I just came from karaoke and am about 10 beers in. I miss my keyboard. Sorry if I mislead anyone into the thread : (

    Would that work on the regular Droid running 2.2 stock? (for the wife, who hates the droid stock keyboard)

    Thx!

    Just installed it and my initial reaction is that I like this better than the stock keyboard and the Swype keyboard. VERY easy to type on this - especially in landscape mode.
