•• Swype or SlideIT - What's your preference?
I've held back on the latest EVO update due to the known audio streaming issues. I know there's a fix for it but I'm kinda lazy with things like that.
All of which brings me to this question:
Swype or SlideIT and why.
Obviously, i don't have Swype yet because i haven't done the update. I know SlideIT is very similar to it and i use it as my default.
Basically, what I want to know is, is Swype so much better than SlideIT that it's worth the trouble downloading the EVO update and then tinkering with the audio stream fix?

I've recently had the same question, I used SlideIT for about a week then switched to Swype and I have to say that I really prefer to use Swype as it is more accurate and faster for my daily use, and the little tips and tweaks you can do with Swype like swyping across the swype and sym brings up an additional editing screen, and double taping a word to quickly switch it out with another make swype a better option in my opinion... And I also like how the swype keyboard takes up less space on my screen.
Hope this helpsThanked by:

SWYPE is usually good enough that I haven't tried slide it. Periodically I'll go through a period where I have to struggle with SWYPE, and I switch to SwiftKey for a week or so till I calm down. SWYPE is generally so fast it is amazing. Occasionally it refuses to recognize a word and I have to fight with it.Palm V-->Palm Vx-->Palm m505-->Garmin iQue3600-->Treo 650-->Treo 755p-->Palm Pre-->EVO 4G-->EVO 3D-->Droid Razr Maxx

Swift Key X is a pretty boss keyboard, but my vote will always be for the Gingerbread keyboard. Now I have heard wonderful things about the ICS one, can't wait to try it out.

Swype. When the EVO was first released I almost didn't buy it because Swype wasn't available. I used SlideIT for a few months, but in my opinion, it wasn't Swype. It's a very good second choice.
Default settings on Swype needed to be changed for my use. I have the Speed vs. accuracy moved. Give me speed!
