    does swiftkey have swype functionality? If not, are any of you former swype devotees among those raving about swiftkey? I feel like I can type the fastest with swype.

    trust me. So did I but you can type pretty inaccurately and all the words correct themselves. It's kinda scary how great it is. I'll mail you $2 if you don't like it haha. Swype takes a long time compared to this.

    I used swype for almost a year before going back to SwiftKey after the update. Trust us, you'll love it. But I must say, swype is much better now since their recent update. You can't go wrong with either. I would highly recommend SwiftKey though

    Swype fan here, I'll definitely give SwiftKey a try when I get my SGSIII.

    Seems like I'm noticing more and more that old-fashioned typos are being replaced with simply the wrong word. Everyone is using Swype/Swiftkey/auto-correct, and they either don't notice or don't care when the wrong word is input. It always makes me do a double-take, then I can usually figure out what they meant, and oftentimes can see where the word they meant would've been similar to the word they actually used in Swype. I'm kind of annoyed by it, but then again I am a crotchety old man at the ripe old age of 32. Kids these days. SMH.

    Ive used Swype for a long time, and tried some other keyboards.

    The newest Swype is amazing. I rarely ever have to correct a word.

    Same here. I have tried using other keyboards but I always come back to Swype.

    I love Swiftkey. I love the idea of Swype, but I felt like I was getting carpal tunnel or something in my thumb.

    "Learnt", huh? (Look under Learn from SMS).

    "Learnt" is acceptable, though not as widely used anymore.

    Just gave SwiftKey 3 another try. Went well so I dropped the $2.00. Liking it now. Was using Smart Keyboard and was liking that I real lot, but it oddly seemed to perform differently at times. Like sometimes posting on forums it would act stupid and not work well. I also like how SwiftKey corrects words where the space is missing.

    I love Swype (have not tried the new beta). I did purchase Swiftkey 3 because it was on Sale and I am loving it as well. I just wish it had "auto-text" shortcuts like BlackBerry.

    Is Swiftkey supposed to be better than SlideIT?

    I've been using swift key since I got this phone, it's pretty good. I still like Swype better, so I downloaded it today.

    I like SwiftKey and there are times I can write whole paragraphs just on the next predictions - they do a great job.

    The latest Swype beta adds pretty accurate predictive text, which is the main feature SwiftKey had going for them.

    I've used both and have always gone back to Swype. Now that they have added SwiftKeys main feature, and have implemented it well, I see no reason not to use Swype.

    I actually just did a comparison of the two latest releases on my blog this week:

    I like SwiftKey, but I love Swype. Just a personal preference to me.

    Handcent SMS is much better than the stock messaging app.

    Amazon Appstore is great for their Free App of the Day.

    I use Opera Mobile because it gives me the most desktop-like browser experience and is quick too.

    I use Pulse to read my RSS news feeds and I use Zite to discover new articles.

    I really like Swiftkey 3. The themes are nice but I'm not sure if I'm typing faster because there's a placebo effect or it's physiological :P

    1) SwiftKey 3 is just amazing. I loved the beta and it blew me away! Its now my stock keyboard on all of my devices!

    2) Amazon App store. We all love pretty paid apps! Cant complain. I mean hell I got the old swiftkey for free from them one day (So 3 came free as well!). Plus many others!

    I will personally be looking for a new messaging app soon in the coming days I think. Otherwise the phone has been great! Really wish we could get rid of the bloatware. That will come with rooting after having the phone for a bit.

    Cheers!
