    Keyboard replacement wherein you trace words on the keyboard instead of typing out the letters via tapping. For some it's a lot faster, for others it's more of a gimmick or a novelty. I'm using it more since my beloved ShapeWriter (a similar app) stopped updating. Try it out, you might like it. If you do, though, be sure to give it at least a day before deciding if you like it or not, since there is a bit of a learning curve.

    Hey MrMixelpix,

    Any idea what happened to Shapewriter?
    I deleted it since i switched to a new rom and didn't have it backed up.
    And I didn't find it in the market

    ShapeWriter was removed from the Market on June 20 for an indefinite period of time :(. I guess I was one of the lucky ones who happened to download it that day. But it is my understanding that Swype works just as well. Someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

    You can download it below. Just follow the instructions at the bottom of the page where it says "register."
