    I'm sorry if this is a nub question, but is there a leaked version of Swype for the BH2? I was under the impression it only works in 1.6, but who knows with what people are capable now days. :cool:

    That's the one. It's got its quirks and issues, but it's a godsend on this little screen. Typing long emails in portrait mode with just your thumb is a revelation. Definitely do the tutorial if you're not already familiar--I never would've figured out caps or double letters.

    Yeah I'm finding it to be amazing. In fact, I'm pretty sure this is some kind of voodoo magic stuff. I don't trust it. :cool:

    Make sure you turn off the sound option in the Swype options, that was the cause of most of my issues.

    Yeah the little tutorial mentioned that, so I made sure to do that first. Loving it still!

    Hey, so I'm starting to like this SenseUI thing. Mainly just the clock and some of the widgets. Are there widgets out there that are similar and don't require rooting?

    I think Beautiful Widgets is a copy of the Sense UI widget.

    I use the Weather Widget (Donate) clock/weather widget from the market; costs a couple bucks but no root required. If you also download the "h7c" clock skin, it looks just like the SenseUI clock. There's a free weather add-on that will launch when you tap the clock, has animation and a 3 day forecast--otherwise, when you tap the clock it launches the alarm clock app. I think it's a great widget.

    You will also need to download OI Installer to install the clock skin; annoying, but you can uninstall OI once you have the skin installed. As for the other widgets--curvefish makes some popular toggle widgets, but I don't use them b/c I'm fine with the toggles in the notification bar.

    Cool thanks Bugdog! I'm using Open Home with te HTC Hero skin/clock. It looks pretty slick, but I'll be trying out some of the stuff you mentioned tonight!
