    Is swype like shape writer?
    They're very similar concepts, except Swype is more accurate in estimating what you mean if you're being sloppy.

    Agreed. Tried shapewriter for a bit and had to uninstall it because it was much less accurate. Swype is fast becoming my go to.

    I'm getting way better at using Swype. There are a few things I wish it had, like auto space after periods, and better auto-capitalization, but it makes manually doing those things so easy that a lot of the time I don't really mind. I'm almost using Swype more than my physical keyboard now.

    if you swype from the "." to spacebar it does do the space after the period. Also if swype from the m key to spacebar it will put a "?" and a space. If you swype from the z key to spacebar it will put a "!" and a space.

    Yeah Swype is a godsend. I love the way it "interprets" my sloppy swiping into correct words. Almost spooky how good it is at that. Really lets you zip along.

    From what I was reading on the swype forum verizon has to purchase a license for its phones to use swype. It looks intresting and I would love to give it a try.

    How can I try swype for android?

    A friendly reminder:

    Swype has already stated that this application is ONLY available through carrier channels. Therefore, do not ask where to obtain copies of this software, or create posts offering up information on where to get it illegally. I have deleted several of these posts today and will continue to do so.

    Thanks,

    8notime.

    I'm gonna have to disagree with the majority here and say Swype isn't all that. I mean its cool and intuitive but for me its just wayyyyy too slow. For those that say they can type faster on the swype keyboard than on the stock one...good on ya...cause I was slow as hell. And I bang out texts with the stock virtual keyboard, landscape or portrait.

    Hmm....I found it anyway, but I am not posting how here. Nor am I going to answer a PM on where it is. :P

    I think it's awesome.

    Okay I got swype installed on my droid. This post was made in swype. I'm pretty fast in it but I gotta keep practicing to get it just right.I can already type way faster than the virtual or hardware keyboard. Honestly, this is way cool. I jammed this post out way quick. One handed too. If you are crafty enough to find it, its great. More accurate and kinda fun to learn something new. I find myself looking at my traces instead of the text field though

    Does anyone know how to uninstall Swype? I used it but it's just not for me and I can't find a way to remove it.
    Thanks

    hmmmm... upon installing this swype thing and selecting it, it gave a warning that this might be able to collect what i type... kind of like a keylogger. O_o why would it say that and what's the danger in it?

    No danger, all keyboards collect data.

    I took a look at the xml files, pored over all files in the apk file, no signs of anything dangerous. I've gotten way faster with this thing too, Much easier to type too. I've noticed a few quirks, but this is still a net positive. I wasn't impressed at first with the videos but now I'm not going back.

    So i have an interesting note on swype... first of all I LOVE it and can type SUPER fast on it even while being uber sloppy, but I found a funny little error...

    I was trying to send "Why so sad puss* cat?" to a girl and noticed i couldn't swype in puss*, so i decided to type it in letter by letter, but when i pushed the y, swype would blow up...

    ...so I guess swype can't type the word puss*

    (hope i'm ok by reporting this... i was typing it in actual reference to the cat... anyone notice any other words???)

    That's bizarre. Were you able to recreate the issue more than once?
