    I work in an office. It has a window, but it isn't
    In a house, near some mountains.
    settings -> language & keyboard -> input method.

    edit: ah yes, i suppose the long press method would be easier

    I was actually the opposite today. I tried swipe before, and didn't like it. I switched back today and it was the best thing ever....

    I keep going back between the two! But I think I'm finally settled on Swype...


    I just REALLY, REALLY, WISH somebody made an app that allowed Swype for portrait mode and Multi for landscape... it'd be the perfect combination!

    I loved Swype from the first time I ever used it. There are a couple of features Slide It has I wish Swype would adopt. I tried Slide It, pretty good, but I prefer Swype.

    Swype encourages texting while driving.

    That is all.

    I used Swype for about a week and just couldn't get used to it. Switched to Swift Key Beta, and while that is good, just wasn't 100% for me.
    Then I read a post here about using Swype - how it works much better if you use "rounded" almost 'cursive' swypes, rather than straight/jerky/jagged lines. Since, that, Swype has worked wonderfully....so much better.
