    "Meanwhile, Swype is moving ahead with its own voice recognition feature, which it expects to add to smartphones this summer.

    “We’re all about improving how people input information into their phones, whether through swiping or speaking,” Mr. McSherry said."

    I feel you on missing the voice to text button, that's the one thing I hate about Swype, this is great news.

    Ah yes, I remember when Swype came out. They used it to break the world record for the fastest text typed/sent. Cheaters!!!

    Will download though and give it a shot! It looks pretty cool.

    Some guy on Youtube broke that record using an Iphone. I think he got like 25 seconds or something.

    I don't think it was official. Anyways, iPhones usually have the auto-correct feature, which Swype did not (because you aren't allowed to use that feature.) If you use it, you're automatically disqualified.
