    Which one are you guys using? Honestly with the huge keyboard and multitouch...Swype doesn't give me a super huge speed improvement! I can FLY typing on this stock keyboard!

    Personal choice. I liked them both when I had the multi-touch ported to the Dinc.

    I strarted out with multiple touch 2 days ago and just started using swype yesterday.

    Once you get the proper names and other slang words you use often into swype you can fly on it!

    I really like Swype and it now has speech to text. However, I just tried out Swift Key yesterday and if I wasn't going to use Swype that would be my choice. It is incredibly good at predicting words (even your next words before you even type in a letter). I was pretty impressed.

    Swype - HANDS DOWN! The fastest way to type on a touchscreen.

    Swype require you to go back through and check to be sure it picked up each word correctly so it actually take me more time to use it. I use the multi-touch keyboard.

    So here's what I use each for: Swype I used for day to day texting and posting of things. Standard keyboard I would usually switch to when inputting words that included letters such as passwords or usernames, since it's sometimes hard to swype fast with words that aren't in the preloaded dictionary. But, Swype learns. Its all in the preference.

    I've been switching between the both of them all day, and I think I'm going to stick with Swype. I was flying through sentences with it.
