    Maybe I'm missing something but in the WinMo version of Swype theres an option to double a word that came out wrong and choose from a list of alternatives. That function doesn't seem to be included in the android one. I don't have nearly as many mistakes now with a capacitive touch screen as opposed to my old resistive, but I still get one every now and again and its easier to do that than place the cursor, backspace, and re-swype.

    huh, a little odd but I'll try it. I think I still like the double tap more, but whatever works right

    If you just Swyped the word all you have to do is hit the Swype key.

    I've noticed this as well. In the tips videos on the Swype homepage they mentioned to double tap to highlight and bring up the window for word suggestions yet on my Droid version I have to highlight and press the Swype key. (bottom left)

    This breaks the fluidity of it all in my opinion.

    It still works, just not in all asps. Like in dolphin, double tapping makes the window go full screen, but in landscape it works fine.

    It seems that in any app that uses double taps the app takes priority.
