    I tried the swiftkey keyboard included on note 2 for a few days and I'm going back to Swype for the following reasons:

    1. SKF is not as forgiving in determining the word when you're speeding thru the keyboard. Swype allows you to just be on the vicinity.

    2. Swype allows you to quickly type common punctuations like . , ? !

    I have been very pleased so far with SKF, I kinda wish the trail was a bit thicker as you flow?

    That's by design most url don't have spaces. It more annoying to have to backspace after every word than to hit the spacebar.

    I understand that, all keyboards do that. What I mean is that it types like that everywhere in the browser, not just in the address bar. So I have to use the stock keyboard to type this response and anything else I type while on the internet. Everywhere else, like text messages or emails I use Swype.

    Swype version 1.2.4.9365


    I tested it against multiple browsers (chrome, quick browser, default Samsung browser) and for a majority of the browsers, when you type in the address bar, it thinks you're trying to type a hostname/url address. Every once in awhile, it will automatically put on spaces.

    Can't reliably reproduce this behavior.

    This flow is pretty damn nice. I used to be a huge fan of swype until I switched to SwiftKey.

    What does SKF have over Swype that made your switch?

    It's the prediction engine. I used to use swype and stopped because I made so many type o's. SwiftKey thinks ahead for you to the point where you can almost just select the words from the prediction menu and write complete sentences.

    The prediction engine is one factor, but how forgiving is SKF when the first character that you swipe is not exactly over that character or even close by it? When using SKF, i found that if i didn't begin swiping in the exact first character of that word, then SKF would result in a different word than i wanted.

    In Swype, it allowed me to be way off, and its algorithm would mostly get it right. And the longer the word(5+ chars), the better.

    I haven't noticed this issue because I don't really use the Swype feature as much now. I prefer typing and choosing my predictions better and find that I get better results.
