    Is very nice... has anyone else used it yet? This might actually be my daily keyboard now.

    I thought it didn't work? latinIME.APK, right?

    Edit: NM, I see they ported it.

    I've used it and like every other hack out there it generates a lot of lag in forum reply boxes and or any website related text input fields...

    It works great on URL boxes, and SMS messages...

    I got a video uploading as we speak... It's a bit better to type on vs stock, but stock's button layout is great... Also missing the hide keyboard button (although pushing back will hide it just as well)...

    Since I'm not a swyper, I say this is the best board so far, with the exception of IME being way more customizable but this one is multitouch... So they're tied...

    Don't mind the spelling, I had to do the video a few times because of hiccup issues on EVO 2 while video recording... Another thing now I'm looking into...

    I just tried mine in ChompSMS and it worked... The stock EVO one just looks better though...

    Still, what program did you use it in?

    Did you try to reboot your phone? My sister's youtube didn't run and I did a reboot and it worked after... Sometimes the Android system needs it, rarely but usually after installs of stuff the phone goes a bit wonky...

    It's cool. Kinda wish the keys were a little bigger but it works as advertised.

    if your speech to text isnt working you might have voice search uninstalled, if you are on fresh's rom go into the fresh removed app's folder. it should be on your sd card and run the voice search apk then the voice option should work on your droidx keyboard

    Swtiched to Multi-touch from Swype. Will be sticking with Multi-touch from now on. Finally, a keyboard that can keep up with my fingers!
