    Yeah I like it. The way the words float on top is pretty sweet. I'm ready for the final build

    It's smooth and pretty accurate. I like the floating predictions. I would like to see a keyboard resize feature though.

    No problem here, though I installed using the apk, not flashing the zip.

    I'll agree with the other comment on this, I haven't experienced any problems adding a new word to the dictionary. I've added at least a good dozen words with no issues. I will state that I'm doing this from a GNex, so it is possible this is a N7 related issue?

    I had bad luck with the APK, I'll try flashing the zip later and see how that works for me.

    Android police just posted the updated version of the keyboard. This should be what we're going to see at release. I like the other build better. This does need to be flashed though. The word tracing trail is fatter and the floating prediction is just blue text in a gray box instead of gray with white outline.

    I believe Swype is a paid app, unless it has a trial feature, but if that's the case we don't condone stealing paid apps here

    Check to see if they offer a trial version, I know SwiftKey let's you try it for around a month before buying.

    No, he wants the keyboard apk. Also, swype beta is free, you can download it but that is not the same as the 4.2 keyboard.

    I'm super excited for this and I can't believe they didn't ship with swype. I don't think they know how slow and annoying typing is with a stylus.

    I was doing it from my HOX. It just says it failed to install every time I try on my N7

    Will they have a tutorial on the keyboard? Its kind of hard to swype "off" well any word with the same letter afterwards- I can do school and good. But some words don't come up. Can any of you swipe and spell off?

    No, I have difficulty with short double letters also. Some apps will let you select it by long holding but does not appear to work with gesture. I have problems with the word app/apps also even added to the dictionary.

    I noticed the (supposed) final build is not as slick. It does not appear to be as smart and gives me a random ??? word. I wanted to type 'purchase' and it gives me the word 'pshaw'. Don't know what word that is in the English language.
