    I see in all of the videos that they use their index finger but that just seems so awkward, so I use my thumbs. Has everyone just gotten used to using their index finger or do you use your thumbs as well?

    I had to check that one. :) I have 2 swipe modes, in portrait mode I hold with left hand and swipe with left thumb. In landscape mode I hold with left hand and swipe with right index finger.

    I have been using my index finger. I just tried using my thumbs and it felt really awkward for me and I didn't have any accuracy at all. Haha.

    Right thumb. You can't hold the phone and type with one hand if you don't use your thumb.

    Thumbs are a great option for me. They help me in increasing texting speed.
