    I am using Dolphin battery saver. And it is telling me that Swype is using the largest portion of my battery? Is anyone experiencing the same? Thanks

    I love it regardless. Best keyboard by far in terms of speed and ease. I can't imagine it using that much more battery than a standard keyboard. But if there is a difference it's worth me NOT using a regular keyboard.

    +1 for Swype.. I'd rather cut other things then peck at keys.. I started with it the day I got my first Droid (the ascend) and have never looked back.. Now if only it would stop cracking out when on the charger :cool:

    Has anyone used SlideIt, TouchPal or FlexT9? Their input operations are very similar to Swype; but do they consume as much battery as Swype?

    FlexT9 were bought by the same company that owns Swype, and the two methods will apparently be combined into one package in the future.

    umm... im with idrifta, swype can go to hell. idk if its me or what but it just annoys the crap out of me, swype around a KEYBOARD, to make a word...... does that make sense to you? i dont drag my finger across the laptop or desktop cpu at home..... and once in awhile when it is a lengthy email, i do get to use 4 fingers. ends up getting typed quicker then you can swype my but :D (j/k)
