    How do you make swype know you need two of the same letter at the end of a word? Example, the word you need is "tell" but swype only reads the "tel" so it pops up the box of words to pick from.

    I have another question. Swype knows to put a space in between words. So why when putting a period in the end of the sentence, doesn't it start the next sentence with a space and capitalized first letter?

    It does on mine. Go to Swype options and make sure that Auto-capitalization is checked.

    drag from period to space, and make sure auto cap is on.

    you can also capitalize any word by dragging from the first letter to above the keyboard, then continuing to swype.

    I'm just getting used to Swype..as a first timer. It's easier to fat finger the virtual keypad but it is faster than tapping letter by letter. I kinda like it.

    I found a neat submenu, it has the up/down, left/right arrows. Just swype from the swype key to the sym key to open this menu.

    The fact that the swype keyboard didn't have arrows was driving me crazy!

    I've really been tying to give swype a chance. I like it better than the stock keyboard, but I think swiftkey might be my favorite. That thing actually predicts your next word, and it is accurate about half the time, if its prediction is incorrect, hit the first letter of the word you want, and it will most likely know exactly what you are talking about. My problem with Swype it that I forget the layout of the keyboard mid word and fingers are blocking the letters, if I lift my fingers, it starts another word. I'm not sure I text enough to fully master swype, I wish I could.

    the trick is just to keep going with it- you'll probably get close enough where it'll know what you want. ;D
