Does Swype cover messages like SwiftKey?

    So I'm loving SwiftKey, except that when I go into messages it doesn't scroll down and the keyboard covers some of the texts. Their support page says they are aware of this but it doesn't appear they will fix it soon. Does Swype also possess this shortcoming?

    Yes it does.

    It's annoying, but not a showstopper. You can manually scroll it up when it gets covered, which is only when switching to/from the app sometimes.

    I noticed I'm not faster with swype than with the regular keyboard, so I'm not using it much. Maybe I need practice. :)

    Its no faster for short words but try swiping a big word quickly without concentrating a ton on getting right on the letters you need. Its pretty amazing at that.
