    Hi all,

    Just wanted to start a new thread so that people can discuss which their favoured text input is.

    I'm using slideit key board at the moment and love it as its so easy just like swype.

    Thought I would let people know that swiftkey kb now supports the speech to text function as well, slideit does too.

    Which kb do you all prefer? Are there any others out there that are worth a try?

    Post your experiences here and your evaluations so that we can all make an informed choice.

    Using 2.1 and Swype is fantastic for me. Gave up on voice to text.

    I use Swiftkey - the new version also has Speech to Text. I find it faster than Swype as it can predict your next word so all you do is select it rather than having to type swype all the letters. You can do pretty much a whole sentance just selecting the next word.

    Hope they combine both types in one at some point that would be really cool. I actually enjoy using slideit but think swiftkey is great too. Will continue with SlideIT for now and hope make the kb look a little more attractive in a future update.

    Who here still uses stock kb?

    Would also love to here from someone who has used beta swype kb and SlideIT to write a comparisons and to state if SlideIT is as good as swype was.
