    lol... No way. Who would ever see that. Awesome. I wish it stayed open after you lift your finger though.

    I like the way Swype handles punctuation. If you long press on a key with symbols or numbers above the normal letter, it lifts off to apply the symbol or number. Also, in a program such as Handcent that can handle speech, if you press menu, you get the option to use speech to text.

    Thanks, I'll check handscent out. Shapewriter handles punctuation the same way. I just have a problem capitalizing things

    In Swype, you place your finger on the first letter, then slide upwards off the keyboard, before going to the next letter. Doing so automatically makes the first letter of your word uppercase.

    Alternatively, there is an up arrow to the left of the Z key, which allows you to type in caps, if you need to do so consecutively.


    As to the OP:

    Though I don't use the normal keyboard, anymore, I'll try this feature...its always the little things. :)
