    Question Swype or SlideIt

    I saw that SlideIT is on sale for $0.99, so I am wondering which keyboard you preder.

    I use slideit.... It is a lot easier to use and you can customize it also.

    I don't have Swype, but I use Slide It everyday. I love it. Much more fun to use than Swift Key and normal keyboard. I find it to be quite accurate when you focus on getting most of the letters in your words. It has good word prediction. I'm using it right now to do this reply. I do make mistakes, especially on long words or words that have multiple same letters. For example, a word like "especially" may be difficult because on normal typing, you would type two "l's" but with Slide It, you only swipe one "l". Sometimes with long or less often used words, the prediction doesn't give you the word. I've found that if you go slowly & concentrate on getting most of the letters in, it will be quite accurate & pick it up. The keyboard does have a typing feature, which is ideal for names or other words you may want to add the dictionary. Also you can type while in Swipe mode to make quick corrections. I find this keyboard a lot of fun to use. I find the highly recommended Swift Key to a lot less fun to use. Once you get used to swiping, you won't want to go back to typing... Well, at least for me! I don't have Swype, but with Slide It, I don't find myself wishing I had Swype. This is a fun keyboard once you get used to swiping instead if typing, but you can type, too, when you need to.

    I enjoy Swype, plus its free :-)

    The newest update did a bunch for Swype, where you can get new updates without having to uninstall and such. Has worked great for me.

    I've noticed that...it's totally different from swype in that respect. I am trying the 14-day trial right now to see how I like it.

    How'd you get the update for Swype? Mine is the same version that it was when I got it in May, or at least as far as I can tell.

    They both suck. The best keyboard available right now is TouchPal. Doesn't matter which input type you prefer. Oh, and its free, no add.

    I prefer FlexT9 personally. No-one gives it props for some reason, but I love it. It has word prediction, Swype-like entry, Dragon voice entry, and trace entry, though I never use that functionality. No skins, but that's not a big deal to me.

    I personally love Swype. I haven't tried SlideIt myself but I've had Swype ever since it came out and it's just became an amazing keyboard. I'm not sure what extras SlideIt has but I'd definately recommend looking at Swype's . So many useful and clever techniques to help you utilize Swype even more

    FlexT9 is like Swype because Dragon bought Swype and is integrating Swype into their software. I would imagine at some point in the future Swype will disappear and we will be left with FlexT9.

    Go Keyboard now supports swiping motion and works really well. I originally wasn't a fan of Go Keyboard, but it's working really great right now.

    Perhaps uninstall, then install the beta version? I'm not sure if that'll work ornot though.

    Well... The issue is that I wouldn't take such a big risk like this :-)

    I'D rather keep on using the old one.... :-)

    I think it will be the exact opposite. Keep swype and intergrate flex
