    Tried to put a beta version of swype on and i received an error about screen size.
    Has anyone seen a version that fits the Ally?

    ShapeWriter on Eris here too. Just checking the forum because I ordered my wife an Ally, and I was wanting some feedback.

    I put t on my wife's Ally, she mainly uses the physical keyboard, but it works well once you are used to it.

    The greatest thing about swype for me was how quickly you pick it up. Watching video of people swyping I thought it would be a complicated series of gestures for basic commands like capitalization or symbols, but its really very simple.

    You can go to 4shared.com and type in SlideIt. I use this on my Ally, and actually prefer it to my Sister in Law's Swype on her Droid 2. Very easy to use and understand. Also the + feature makes adding words easy.

    I had thought I wanted Swype, but I have ended up using the physical keyboard a lot on this phone. I didn't think I wanted a pull-out keyboard, but I keep finding myself starting to enter text on-screen and getting in a hurry and pulling out the keyboard to finish. It feels very natural to me.

    I've fooled with Swype a little bit on my nephew's Droid X, and I think if I didn't have a keyboard I'd use Swype. It seems so elegant.
