    Default Re: 4.2 keyboard

    I decided to try out Swype Beta in anticipation of the official new keyboard and I have to say I'm really liking swiping instead of pecking away slowly on the keyboard.

    Maybe once it is released we all could come here and tell each other how to type certain words if you can get it. I love this keyboard. Makes texting and driving easy for me. I can keep my eyes on the road (don't recommend anyone to text and drive)

    You are joking about that, right?

    Also, SwiftKey is coming out soon with a swipe version of their keyboard called SwiftKey Flow. It looks quite well done on their video. It will be interesting to see how it compares to the new stock Android 4.2 keyboard. SwiftKey has learned my writing pattern so well that I can't see changing back to stock, but if their new Flow keyboard can inherit the same prediction data that I've built up, I might consider upgrading to it.

    lol well i guess you might want to start walking or taking a bus. because everyone text and drives. its something that will never stop. and for me its a safer way (for me) its not safe to text and drive period.. but if i can keep my eyes on the road and not have to constantly look down at my phone to see what key i hit.. thats good for me. i dont always text and drive. i hardly ever do it. but when i do i can keep my eyes on the road because i can swipe.

    Yes, but can she tell you exactly what happened in the movie during that 30 seconds? And can she operate the remote control at the same time?

    Sorry, but I just can't seem to "lol" about this.

    It's not so much your life I care about (though I certainly don't want any harm to come to you and hope you live a long and prosperous life), it's the life of the completely innocent 5 year old kid you kill while texting and driving, as you suddenly realize that you're not really endowed with special powers of concentration or superhuman texting/driving capabilities. The problem isn't just taking your eyes off the road, it's where your mind is at.

    Swype or SwiftKey Flow or the new 4.2 keyboard makes no difference. If you text and drive, you're either a foolish and selfish person, or (hopefully) just completely uninformed. It's possible nothing will ever happen to you, but with your behavior the chances have increased substantially that something bad will happen. When it does, don't bother calling me for bail money (best case scenario) or your funeral expenses (hard to do when you're 6 feet under)!

    Better yet, since I get the feeling you're actually a pretty good person, just don't text and drive. End of sermon.

    Everyone who texts and drives at same time seems to think they have some sort of special ability that other people just don't understand, and that they are too capable of multi tasking to ever have something happen. I've worked rescue with the volunteer FD and helped pull a couple of these out of their mangled pieces of scrap metal after they run up a tree using these super skills.

    If it's important why not hit the voice to text. If it's not just ignore it and keep moving. Now if I were running for president, I would require that smartphone technology include proximity sensors that would automatically put smartphones into driving mode while in vehicles

    How about we get back on topic.

    Anyone else annoyed about the final 4.2 build? I noticed if I put in a single letter word by typing, such as I or a, the gesture breaks. The next word I try to slide will not function, like it goes back to normal keyboard mode. Also the dictionary and word prediction has gone to WTF.

    Starting to look forward to swiftkey slide beta.

    I use Swype on my phone, and I don't know how similar it is to the 4.2 keyboard, but on my phone, if I need to repeat the same letter, I usually do a small circle or curl around that letter, and that tends to do the trick. I'm waiting for the actual release of 4.2 before I use that keyboard, so I can't tell you yet if it works on the actual keyboard. Just thought I'd share, in case it actually does work on the 4.2 keyboard too.

    No it doesn't I figured it would have but I love swype. I mean it's getting better every day with double letter word just by me using it so much and making it the first option wheni swipe. Maybe that's what they will do instead of the circle around the letter
