    Slide keyboards

    I saw someone with a Galaxy S typing using a Swype keyboard and I thought wow!

    it doesn't seem to be available for general use but I've found another one in the market called SlideIt that does the same thing.

    Takes a bit of learning but ends up being much much faster to type "proper" messages (e.g more than OK and c u l8tr )

    its one of those things you have to try for a week before deciding yea or nay

    regards

    Simon

    The Swype app should run seamlessly on all Android versions. Note that it isn’t available for download from Android Market – you need to actually visit the Swype website and make sure your phone’s settings allow you to install and run apps from ‘unknown sources’.
    BOOOOOM

    I've been using SlideIt for a while. I wish the dictionary was easy to edit though.

    Telling someone you want to 'radish' them doesn't have the same ring to it.

    I put it on my N8 as soon as I could - took about a dozen text messages to get used to and then I was completely hooked and haven't looked back since.

    Swype is cool

    Even better when you learn that if you swipe from the swype button in the bottom left corner over to the sym button you then get some navigation arrows etc...

    I've had it a couple of days, now, after getting my invite.

    *WARNING*

    It is a 10meg apk, 10meg installer, and 10meg of other files and such. So you need a HUGE chunk of internal memory to get it running.

    However, once you get it in...it really is a "game-changer"! It is incredibly easy to use, and even though it's only beta, it is very polished.

    Once they manage to bring the install down to a reasonable size, then I think it would be a definite purchase....and I've always said I'd spend nothing on apps!!!

    They have said, on their forums, that they will be looking to drop the size of the download. Once that happens, I'd advise everyone to get it...It IS that good!

    Mine is showing as a 1.73mb install.
