    OnLive is now available for Android (and iOS)

    And even more than with the desktop version, it blows me away at how incredible this tech is. Really. Freaking. Unbelievable.

    Really cool, but I tried playing Dirt 3 with it on my galaxy S2 and there was so much input lag that the car just went everywhere. The picture was great through.

    I tried it on my HD2.

    No major input lag but the car would only drive in reverse...

    Do any of you ever find yourself being forced to reboot, because your phone gets really sluggish?
    Yeah, I downloaded App Cache Clear. I haven't rebooted my for months now.

    I tried Lego Batman and it was fine. I'd expect their servers to be busy what with all the Android early adopeters. Give it a day or so...

    Edit: On keyboards, I honestly prefer HTC_IME to all of them...

    Is that the reason why the phone slows down after a while? The cache gets too big?

    I can't remember what HTC_IME is like, and I haven't had any problems with the stock keyboard (it looks lovely in blue ), but I wish I could change the row gap/key height, because it takes up half my screen

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think so. I've had had alot less crashes and slowness since i've been using it.

    I already have this tab open, actually :P

    I've found where my custom dictionary is stored, so I should be able to copy that easily. I'll try it out. :ta:

    I've used SwiftKey since it was in beta many moons ago and I doubt I could go back

    Surprised nobody posted it yet. The SGS2 for effectively £20/month 900 mins 5000 texts 1gb internet (or £3 extra for truly unlimited) or 500 mins for £17, 24 months on 3 network.
    I think it's an awesome deal and close to SIM only deals, kinda like getting the phone free.

    I'm not sure whether Affordable Mobiles have the stock to cope, but head over to HUKD for th link.
