    Do you mean Skype or Swype? Might need to get your title changed?!

    Sorry meant Swype...and also meant SE Companion not Comparison! It still writes but not in a 'swypey' way!

    my problem still with swype is it freezes at the end of drawing a word ever so often. like you go h-o-r-s-e and it gets stuck on e when your finger comes off screen. errr.

    vlingo wasnt working right for me today also. then an incoming call came in and when i tried to answer it my phone turned off hahaha. messed up!

    Well, after updates, you should try to kill the keyboard so it could bare with the changes.

    ok swype is really starting to piss me off.. i seem to be getting slower at it! not faster!

    it keeps making mistakes like spelling thos instead of this. WTF? thos isnt even a word! Or loke instead of like. I used to love swype when i first got it.

    why is swype getting more stupid by the day??

    My Swype, after changing Roms, just beeps after every word and never completes it.

    Honestly, **** Swype. It's been out for a year and they sometimes offer a beta you have to jump through hoops to get? Then you have to sign up, get the installer, download it, go through the steps and then it expires.

    I understalled/deleted Swype, but kept the Swype Installer. I then had to re-log in to the install, re-license it, and re-install and it finally works again.
