    Download Swiftkey in market. I downloaded it a couple weeks ago, like it better than Swype. Anyone else try it out yet? :)

    ZX-- It's a keyboard. I've been using it for a bout a day and a half now. It's good, but I don't know if I like it better than Swype yet. I will be giving it more time though as it seems the prediction is getting better as it "learns" the way I type my messages.

    I've been trying it too. Everyone has different preferences/needs. For me, the beauty of Swype is that I can enter text with minimal concentration. I remember the days before Swype, and the days with the iPhone - if I had three sentences to enter into the phone, I dreaded it.

    With Swype, the main benefit for me is that you don't need to concentrate on precisely hitting the keys. All you have to do is swype close to the keys and it figures it out. I can even swype with my thumb with excellent results and I can swype in a moving vehicle (no, not while driving :) ) with great accuracy.

    Swiftkey is cool, but I have to really concentrate and keep shifting focus from the keys to the suggestion box. It's very well done, but I still dread typing three sentences.

    Jim, I agree with you on why swype is so useful. Using just my thumb in portrait is quite nice. That being said, what I am noticing with swiftkey as it learns my "style" better is that just pressing a letter can be sufficient. I have just had the experince of typing an entire sentence by only pressing the first letter of it. The prediction software they have for swiftkey is truly something else.

    I like what swiftkey has to offer, I just wish they incorporate a slide feature like swype, That'll be the business.

    Chawski, you have to go sign up for the beta on their website. Then they will send you a download link.

    Its really fast. That's what counts for me. Auto-complete is not that bad. But I dont use auto-complete a lot...

    so far I LOVE it but...

    1. how do you get a word thats not in the dictionary (that you dont want to add to the dictionary) to "stick" I have it set up so the space key chooses the middle word.

    2. is there a way to delete a WHOLE word if you hit the space key by mistake and choose the wrong word?

    thanks!!!

    Well, I've tried using Swiftkey now for over a week and have now switched back to Swype. I like the idea, but I don't like the constant FC's I kept getting with it. Maybe it will get fixed and be a usable KB for me again, but it's definitely not right now.
