    Default What keyboard do you use?

    Curious what stock keyboard you folks are using. Is anyone using the swype or the samsung handwritting keyboard?The handwriting one seems neat. Reminds me of my old palm but not sure if it'd be easy to become fluid and fast with.

    I'm new to the captivate and have been using the default(samsung qwerty) keyboard and just started playing with the other options to see what I like.

    I'm using the gingerbread keyboard now. But I like to use swype sometimes.

    Swype! This is what sold me on the phone over the blackberry. Thought I may miss the hard keyboard, but I've grown to love swype.

    Swype in portrait mode is a timesaver. Swype in landscape mode is pointless (IMO) as it simply increases the time it takes to type compared to portrait. I wish there was a way to have Swype as the portrait KB, and the stock android one for landscape mode.

    Watching the videos on the Swype website is a HUGE help in typing better on your phone. There are tricks.

    Well, I'm using gingerbread keyboard on my Evo(not rooted). It's totally awesome - I can't get the hang of using swype.

    Thanks folks. I guess I'll give swype a try since everyone seems to like it.

    Go to the website and watch the videos. Helps out a ton to see some of the tricks, especially the one on going faster and not correcting at every word. Swype has a real nice feature to double-click a word for other options... very quick to do that when you are done typing to each word that may be wrong, rather than do it as you go. Helped my speed hugely.
