    So, are there a lot of people out there using the optical trackpad? I've had the phone for a while and....I don't think I've ever actually used it except to mess around.

    Are there some things that it makes easier? Better? Faster?

    When I need to edit text I use it alot. I also use it sometimes to scroll up/down on a website. Sometimes to move between home screens. And to wake the phone.

    Snapping a pic. I wish I was using it to wake the device if a quality app would surface to make that happen.

    I can feel it a little, and I can really tell when I use my fiance's Inc, which has a Zagg on it. Once I get a SGP screen protector, I'm going to punch out a 3/8" hole around the trackpad to make the hole bigger, so it doesn't interfere with the ease of pushing it in.

    +1 editing text, and taking pics, although I'd rather a less harsh 'shutter release' option.

    It's good for some things like taking pics.

    But it's a little too slow for scrolling long lists.

    I guess I have used it to take pics. I can't even remember. Other than that, nothing.

    I would use it for editing text but it is too slow.

    I use it to control the spiral speed for the hypno-toad app.
    All hail hypno-toad.

    It would be nice if one could adjust the speed that it moves the cursor.

    What do you use the trackpad for?

    Looking at it and wishing it worked like the one they copied?

    Taking a pic is about all i use it for. Most of the time I forget it's there.

    1. Selecting a link on a webpage when it's too small to touch and I'm too lazy to zoom in.
    2. Editing text to move the cursor back a few spaces.
    3. On some forums, text is covered for spoilers and I use the trackpad to select the text and click it to highlight and read the text.
    4. Take pictures.
