    Every time i try using swype it wont come up and will just slow down my phone. Samsung keyboard works but sucks. I tried swift key as well but still was doing the same thing as swype, anyone had this problem as well?

    I had swift key installed and was suffering from serious lag.I'm talking like 5 plus second wait in between letters.I switched to the Swype and haven't looked back.I would say check your setting s for your keyboard also you might need to delete Swift key from your phone then try activating Swype again I'd that doesn't work you might need a reset

    Swype and Swiftkey Flow both work very well on my SIII. I would suggest a reboot, then battery pull and, as other poster suggested, factory reset.

    Swype Beta was integrated into the default keyboard with JB. Doesn't work the same as it did before. It's no longer available on play.google
    I installed Swiftkey 2 and am happier with that.

    What Swype version are you using? You need to go to the Swype website and have it send the latest version to your phone. Mine just updated this week to version 1.4.5.12537. It works great and fast on my S3.

    Search Google for Swype Beta, you can go to the website and download it. Swype Beta works better than the Swype on the phone and has some extra personalization.

    A note appeared today on my SwiftKey3 keyboard asking if I wanted to activate the Swype option. I said yes and it works flawlessly! 5 stars from a Galaxy S2 user.

    Where did you get Swiftkey Flow? I couldn't find it in the Play store.

    It's SwiftKey 4, so just search for that, or if you already have SwiftKey check under "My Apps" for an update. It's pretty darn awesome so far.

    Actually, in the play store it's listed only as Swiftkey keyboard. That said, the newest update brings in FLOW options (must manually enable) and does work very well. I just upgraded from the 1-month swiftkey trial for $2 just this morning - on sale 1/2 price.

    Ah. Sorry. Guess it says 4 in the app description and I mixed it up. What do you think of it so far?

    Still learning it and am undecided at this time but seems to work reasonably well. It has made some errors, but think that is more my fault then the prgm simply because it still feels foreign. I never used the stock swype so this is all new to me, LOL. I was just thrilled when I saw the upgraded version on sale...almost paid $4 for it last week but was testing out other free keyboards before spending the money. Glad I waited...

    Did you go to settings and have it learn from your email, sms and Twitter? Made prediction ridiculously good for me from the get go. I am still getting used to swiping, though, and find I'm doing about half swiping and half typing.

    I've been using SwiftKey since the JB update. First time using the keyboard today, it got the Flow update.

    Wow... is this an Android issue, or a G1 issue? I can't believe the ancient WinMo OS can run apps off of a memory card, and this phone can't?
    is it easy to switch between type and swype? I can't figure out how to swype capital letters.

    Flow doesn't have everything Swype or Swype Beta does. With Swype to capitalize a random word in the sentence, you Swype your finger or pen above the keyboard after the first letter. Never could get it to work that way in flow.

    Yes. Just type instead of swiping. You don't have to change any settings or anything. I can't figure out how to swipe caps either. I've just been tapping the shift key. :shrugs

    I also have the Kii keyboard but if you use swype sometimes it won't do anything including regular text. But it has a feature where you can swype to the space bar to access the alt character on a key. Never got it to work but thought it was cool. I'm loving this on Swift Key! I'd bought it and never used it cause many things about it annoy me but swyping is super easy!

    Someone just posted this video elsewhere on the forum regarding Swift Key 4. Thanks for asking this question.

    Just bought the new SwiftKey. $2. I've been running the latest Swype beta. I'm thinking SwiftKey 4 flow, is my new permanent keyboard.

    Sywpe BETA. I have been using Sywpe for years.

    Once you are used to it you can do a complete message without even looking at your phone.

    When I type "swype keyboard" or beta into the Play Store search, nothing comes up.
