Do you use swype, voice commands, or the normal keyboard?

    My iphone is jailbroken. I have swype, voice commands, and the stock keyboard.

    Swype isn't that good. Its not very accurate.

    Maybe because I need to add more words to the dictionary.

    Voice is pretty good.

    But I think the best is still stock.

    Does anyone else agree?

    How did you get voice commands?

    I've been searching for saradictation with no luck. I didn't know I had other options (unless you have saradictation)

    Currently I use the stock keyboard. I had tried swype and it was TERRIBLE. It couldn't even get 1 letter works right, would always mess up somehow. I use siri a lot to open up apps/change settings now thhat I have that tweak. If apple had launched Siri with this functionality I'd have been using her since day 1!

    Agreed. Swypes no good. It looked so good when it first came out. Made us iPhone users jealous. So glad I got to see first hand how much it stinks n

    You guys do know that the iPhone Swype tweak is UNOFFICIAL right? It is completed written from the ground up by one dude who is not affiliated with the Swype Android team at all.

    Of course it's going to suck.

    If only the official Swype is ported to the iOS platform :(

    I just got the S3. I also used Swype in Cydia on my 4S.

    Swype on the S3 is outstanding. It's accurate, RARELY misses the word, and the predicitive text on the phone actually predicts right. It is also 10x easier than using it with the iPhone because of the additional space between keys.

    Well Swype for iPhone is not very good. They need to improve it for iOS. I guess apple doesnt care to buy it and improve it for iOS ad the developers don't either because it's not in the official app store.

    Also, it definitely needs to add some spaces between keys.

    When I went on my little android stint a year or so ago swype for android kicked ass. I don't know why the one for ios sucks so terribly but I can only think that the android one today is out of this world!

    What about the Blackberry-esque feature that allows you to select predicted words with a single button (forgot the name of the tweak - Octopus Keyboard?))? I haven't installed it yet myself (waiting to update to 5.1.1), but it got decent reviews I believe.

    Stock. On my Android device Swype was a must have but that device's stock keyboard was terrible. I have no complaints regarding the stock iPhone keyboard. Use whatever works for you.

    Swype for Android definitely worked amazing for me...very accurate and I was able to text much quicker and easily with one hand...but I just use stock keyboard on the iPhone.
