For me, the main drawback of switching to an Android phone was not having a physical keyboard any more. Typing on the touch screen keyboard is infuriatingly slow and error-prone, even if you use the word-suggestion feature. (It isn’t very smart, offering word suggestions not in order of how frequent each word is in everyday text, but in alphabetical order.)
But now it seems I’ve found the solution, that allows me to type fast in English and a few other large languages. Swype is an input method where you write each word by drawing a continuous line on the soft keyboard from key to key. When you lift your finger from the screen, Swype figures out what word you meant. Fast! The image above shows somebody writing the word “quick”. If Swype gets confused it offers word suggestions. You don’t even need to press space between words. Check it out!
