    Currently I have swype, it is fast but I can see how swiftkey may well be faster. After all, if you only have to enter 1-3 letters of every word surely it must be quicker? I suppose I 'll find out when I give it a proper go.

    I've used Swift Key for a while now and I'm not even typing the 3rd letter anymore. I usually type in the first letter which is usually H and it guesses " Hey, How's you? Are you at uni yet" as that is my most used collections of words and I text that every morning everyday really.

    Is it not similar? Looks like it is when I googled it.

    Umm if I remember correctly when you tap on the word you don't need to tap space. It makes spaces for you. Also a nice hint swipe the keyboard backwards to delete the word.
    Yeah but the space annoys me when the next thing i want is a punctuation mark or something

    Even better.

    Have you used swype? I think the only reason I have it at the moment is novelty, it's fun to use (and is faster than a standard keyboard), so much so that when google predicts what I'm searching for I usually just keep on swyping. (Urgh, that is nerdy to the extreme)

    Tap the word then tap the punctuation mark. it will go next to it like how it will suppose too,

    I think I've used it for a while before I found out about Swift Key then changed to Swift Key and never looked back really.

    See it's a clever little program
    Also something like settings, -> keyboard -> Swift Key you can see how many characters you saved making you more efficient at typing.

    Just got it, let's see how this rolls. :cool:

    I suspect it'll be useful for texts, which I barely send out unless I'm away - but when I'm googling stuff it's usually new words etc. anyway.

    Swiftkey I find is good when you want to type a quick text message and the prediction has a good idea what you want to say but trying to type quickly with it is just a non-starter, the predictions take too long to load and then miscorrect the words

    What do you use?

    I'm going to give swiftkey a week or so, but I've been quite impressed, in some cases it basically gets the sentence I'm about to type with only 3-4 actual letter inputs.
