Swype vs. Thumb Keyboard?
Hi. I am new to the forum. I am curious, do you like Swype Beta or Thumb Keyboard better? I learned how to swipe on a cell phone but now I am using a tablet so it was easy to transfer those skills. I am using the Google Nexus 7 tablet. I like the speed of swiping but I'm wondering if I could type faster with the thumb keyboard? I have never been much of a thumb-texter; before my Android phone I just hunt-and-pecked with my forefinger on the tiny phone keyboard, totally in awe at those who could text with such speed, even though I could amaze people with my own speed on a computer keyboard. I have found that I have been avoiding typing e-mails to my friends on my tablet because I don't like to type lengthy things on a tablet keyboard. So, what would you recommend for typing lengthy e-mails, if anything? I keep hearing about the Thumb Keyboard and wonder if I'm missing out on something or if I already have a good thing going with Swype Beta? Perhaps I shouldn't mess with perfection, or perhaps I just need to get out the old laptop more often.... Thanks!
