SwiftKey, what's your thinking of it?
So I downloaded the beta and did the predictions updates and it seems to be as awsome as the phone version. Anyone else like, love, hate it?
I like the predictions and will use it over the stock or thumb board. But I'm not sure how much I like the tron like design. The full board is almost as easy to use as the split board (defalt). But I find that the split board has real small keys. I guess I have big thumbs.

The space bar could do with being taller in portrait mode. I'm always hitting b or n when I type quickly.
The only other complaint I have is that it sometimes doesn't recognise a misspelled word, even if it's only off by a letter or two.
Pretty good keyboard overall. Would be interested to try out a honeycomb version of swype though.

I have not tried Swype on the Xoom. I tried it on my EVO, and I did not care for it.
Just my two cents...

SwiftKey is amazing. It is extremely easy to type on and the predictions are very accurate most of the time.
My one complaint (it's a very big complaint for me) is that there is no "Tab" key. I use that very often when moving the cursor from section to section. If they add in a Tab key it would be perfect.Hell does not start with an "H", it starts with an "E" and ends with an "H" and displays art within its realm......................Anyone??

I really dislike the layout of swiftkey on the Xoom. The predictions are great but I find that the enlarged keys block way too much of the screen and the backspace key is placed all wrong. I actually prefer the stock keyboard over anything else so far. If swiftkey would reduce its size and adopt a layout more similar to the stock keyboard I would use it in a heartbeat.

Is there some setting I'm missing in Swift Key to make it bigger? I'm using Smartkeyboard now and it works fine. Swiftkey only takes up like a small strip at the bottom of the Xoom in landscape mode, and is basically useless.
I love Swiftkey on the Tbolt. So I would really like to use it on the Xoom as well.

I didn't really like the SwiftKey in the market and I've been a SwiftKey VIP for a bit so I downloaded the tablet Beta and now it's all I use. It performs better than market version on Xoom, two different layouts, looks better too. Go to their website sign up and wait for code or look for an open enrollment, usually on Fridays.

I am not a fan of Swiftkey. I use Smart Keyboard pro. The skin choices make it a winner and the speed and predictions are excellent .

The cursor arrows are so useful for editing text. And I like the way it has the secondary key functions actually written on the keys... with Swiftkey you just have to guess.
I do miss the word prediction in Swiftkey though.
