A few days ago I wrote about my continuing impressions with my Samsung Galaxy S2 cellphone. Among my peeves was the virtual keyboard. It sucks. Is that enough to the point? And yet tonight I think I’ve found a solution… and it must be magic.
I’ve started using the Swype keyboard. It’s very different. Instead of tapping out the letters one-by-one you swipe your finger from letter-to-letter never lifting it off the screen.
No matter how sloppy my swiping seems to me the program follows it! How is this possible?
Seriously, I have no idea how this can work and work as well as it does. Originally I didn’t want to try it because I didn’t want to be disappointed. I could not have been more wrong.
I’ve demonstrated swyping to a few people at work. They each leave the conversation slack jawed!
I suspect this is an underutilized app because people just know it can’t possibly work.
