    After upgrading to Froyo 2.2, Swype started to behave strangely. I noticed that with Froyo 2.2, Swype also got a newer version. However, the performance is much worst when compared to the previous version. Here is the summary of the issues which i noticed:

    1. Incorrect word recognition. 30%-40% increase in incorrect recognition
    2. Much higher CPU usage (hence battery drain)
    3. Very bad performance in portrait mode as compared to landscape mode

    Anyone else noticed the same behaviour?

    Regards,

    Yes, you're right. the old version was the better one. Even the update version's recognition isn't as good as the 2.1 Eclair version, but it comes with some enhancements that make it a better trade off. There's a post someplace I posted about getting rid of your version and upgrading to 2.10.xxx That fixes SOME of the incorrect word recognition.

    Just one of many annoyances that came with froyo. What on earth compelled them to basically remove landscape text input when using swype? Also, for some reason, they've disabled the ability to jump from one text field to another (ie inputting usernames & passwords). So annoying

    I just upgraded my firmware tonight, rooted and install lag fix. No problem with swype function (both in portrait and landscape orientation) on mine.

    Sorry, I don't think I was entirely clear in my post.

    Prior to upgrading to froyo, when going about entering a body of text into a web page (for example, this post) I'd tilt the phone landscape which would provide me with a full-screened text input ability rather than inputting text with the phone portrait as it was very difficult to see what you're typing when the input field is embedded into the web page. Since froyo, this landscape text input is no more and you're now forced to input text into a little box that's embedded inside the website. This is particularly difficult as the page will often scroll left & right when typing and is very difficult to monitor what you're writing to pick up on typos etc.
