    Contrary to popular belief Samsung keyboard is not the Swype keyboard. The Swype keyboard actually is probably the best keyboard ever to date. Now that Nuance had acquired Swype the speech (drag-on) input and rendering amazing! You now can Swype, tap, talk or write with this keyboard. The Samsung and Google keyboards do have Swype like capabilities but it just doesn't compare! Swype also does a great job at predicting the next word like Swiftkey.It also does well with spell checking. I too thought the Samsung was Swype keyboard but I'm glad I found the right one. You should try for yourself let me know what you think. It has some bugs,it's Still In beta but I'm still satisfied! beta.swype.com

    You can use it as a typing keyboard with prediction just like swiftkey3. You don't have to Swype

    totally agree. I switched to the swype beta and it is the bomb. The voice to text is almost flawless even for a fairly long entry. And as you say word prediction is much better than the stock keyboard.

    Love Swype it was one of the first things I installed when I got my phone! It's amazing! I love the swype function, but sometimes I just use it as a regular keyboard and even with a lot of typos it still knows the word I'm trying to type. I haven't tried the voice typing yet.

    Love the Swype beta. I have no idea what the default keyboard Samsung has installed but it is nothing like the real Swype.

    Yessss took me a while to find Swype at first but after I did I fell in love. It learns the words you use just like swift key. Does Ann amazing job at predicting and spell checking. Much better than that t9 crap by Samsung.

    Swiftkey 3 is the best keyboard, bar none. It's lightyears ahead of Swype and the stock GS3 keyboard.

    Just installed the Swype Beta and it is a big improvement over what comes with the GS3. I like Swiftkey 3 a lot but can't Swype being free, and its a damn nice keyboard. If your not going to pay for a keyboard app then definitely get Swype Beta.

    I have used both, I still prefer Swype over SwiftKey 3. Both are nice, but my fat gorilla hands and fingers do much better tracing my words than typing. The predictive feature on SwiftKey is pretty sweet, its nice to be able to have the next word accurately predicted and just tap that. But having a Swype-esque function is just a personal preference. Both are great options, and can make any stock keyboard look like the ugly redheaded step child.

    I love swype. It came installed on my phone and tablet. I can't find the beta version you're referring to. Should I be searching for something other than "swype keyboard beta" ?
    The one I have works great but doesn't handle accurately more than a few words at a time on voice input, so if there is something better, I'm willing to try it.

    That would defeat the point though. Swype's predictions are good, but not even close to what Swiftkey can do. I go between the two as swype is handy fot one handed testing if I'm in a line or whatever.

    Swype and Swiftkey are the 2 best out there, depending on your flavor.

    Just played with Swype a little and have to say, it's nice! But it lacks some features that SlideIT has. For example, shortcuts. You can swipe "btw" and it gets expanded into "by the way". Of course, Swype is still a beta, so I'm sure more features will be added.

    I was tempted to buy SwiftKey for $1 since its currently on sale, but Swype will probably never be replaced for me! I installed the Swype Beta on day one of getting the phone. I wanted to install it on my E4GT but they wouldnt allow me. The voice dictation is better than the old one and better than Google's, and the predictive text is nice. Not sure its better than SwiftKey, but its there if you rely on it (I dont). I havent tried the drawing/handwriting aspect yet.

    For Swipe Swype is the best, for typing swifkey is the best.

    Swype is always in beta, at least the one you download. They sell their non beta version to phone manufacturers and it comes pre-packed on some phones. Thats how they make their money.

    The beta is actually the better one because it is more advanced. Before you could not install the beta without rooting and modifying the old swype but the most recent Swype generation has allowed it on any phone. My MoPho had Swype and Swype Beta on it.

    I have both and have used both. Personally,I like swype better because I have the option to type, swype, or handwrite. I do however, like the color options for swiftkey but I find myself going back to swype so I might as well keep it active.
