    Seems to be working fine on 2.2 N1 (granted not rooted). Anyway to port it over to the Droid (if porting even needs to be done)?

    you would just need to pull the apk from a 2.2 N1 I bet it would work. I tried pulling the apk from my wifes eris and it didnt work at all on my droid.

    Thanks, got the old Beta up and running. Still would prefer the real release in order to get updates. According to Twitter, looks like they're trying to get it in the market for all devices soon.

    For anyone interested:

    Hmmm, must be a CM thing then. Or a source built ROM thing? (can't recall if Pete is building from source or not).

    Could be that CM6 is showing we are on 2.2 (thats why flash player is found in the market). Seems that swift needs to make it avavible to 2.2 droid. But that wont happen untill we offically get 2.2 i think. BBv04 if you search flash player in the market you will not find it.

    No problem, unfortunately my opinion is that the keyboard is too slow :/

    Hmm, I wonder if there is a way to trim the fat. I'll have to play with the settings and see what I can find.

    Still getting used to it. They claim the "Full internet access" isn't true :cool: But it's a little worrying. Anyway, I input all my username/passwords with the hardware KB to be on the safe side.

    I believe that with the CM 2.2 ROMs, the market will see our Droid's as an N1 running 2.2 (CM is built for the N1 and ported over to the Droid). BB v0.4 still appears to be 2.2 but flash won't show up because the Droid has not been officially released with 2.2 yet.

    I have installed the market fix (and I looked for the link where I got it from and can't find it but I believe it is BGill55's Market Fix that I used). I'm running CM 6.0.0 RC1 and I was able to find and install that "SwiftKey" app and it works fine. Flash player still shows up after applying the Market fix so I'm not sure why that is...

    Edit: I don't see what's special about this keyboard though...am I missing something or is it simply a "market version" of what looks to be an HTC IME keyboard ripoff?

    So do you enter the pwds then go to settings and re-enable the SwiftKey? Or is there a faster way to switch between the two?

    It's rather similar to the HTC_IME but unless it was updated to not interfere with the HW keyboard (ie. FC upon using the keyboard) then great. But, if you give it another try, it allows auto correction and predictive text while using the HW keyboard. :D

    You can always long press on the text entry area and it will allow you to switch between the stock Android keyboard and SK (or whatever you have installed). Works as long as both keyboards are selected under settings.

    Running CM6, found it in the market, downloaded, installed, and using just fine. Not sure what the problem is.
