What are these keyboard apps?
Rummaging around in the Manage applications settings, I came across two apps called KeyBoardSlideUpCounter and Keytracer. Both occupy 0 bytes, and neither one has any data or cache. They both have very broad permissions on the phone, and no options to uninstall. I don't like the sound of them, but a brief bit of Googling suggests they may be just part of the phone's system. Anybody know what these are?

Re: What are these keyboard apps?
Thanks! I hadn't thought of Swype (which I don't use). Neither of them seems to be actually running on the phone; at any rate, the Force stop buttons are grayed out. The function of the Counter app is pretty clear; I'm just curious who's doing the counting and why! I don't have a tone set for opening/closing the keyboard, and there doesn't seem to be a setting for that. I just wanted to be sure that some nefarious app-slipper hadn't slipped a keylogger onto my phone.
