Any good swipe keyboard apps out there?
I heard you can get a swype kb through the modmyi repository, but that's obviously only if your jailbroken. If not, your sol.
There is one or two but you have to jailbreak. I tried one but it was nowhere near as good as the android version.
I'll see if I can install and try it as I have one of the jb'd phones laying around. Just looking at it and peoples comments though, yeh doesn't seem it's as nice or good as Androids. I use Swype on my GSII and love it, great for normal typing and now after some months of it learning your style/words/text etc, swyping can be fast and accurate.
what is jail break? i know, im an idiot lol
well, you know, when visitors bring you a cake with a file stuffed in it and all that
how do i jail break my phone?
You didn't say what phone you have, but you've never heard of jailbreak??? I've been jailbreaking for years lol. Basically imagine "hacking" your phone to get rid of all of apples stupid restrictions and being able to customize and make it more efficient to use.

Mine has been jailbroken for about a year now, so I'm a bit out of it. Others may have better suggestions, but I would start here
SWYPE submitted their keyboard app to Apple for approval but was rejected. I can only guess it was being interpreted as a threat due to it's superior performance as compared to the standard keyboard.
Samsung has included SWYPE as one of three keyboards included in their Galaxy series since the beginning. At first I was too impatient to learn it. Then a friend raved about it, so I gave it a second try. Now I use it all the time on my SGS II and would really like to have it on my iPhone 4S.
I never imagined how fast, fun & easy typing could be on a touch screen prior to SWYPE.
Yup, at first I just typed like you normally would as it learns your words and style and everything, and now Swyping is awesome. I end up doing a mix of swyping and some words normal typing (some are hard to pick up swyped) and it's like 2nd nature now.
But it's a great keyboard for just normal typing too.
I was fortunate to grab ShapeWriter when it made it to the App Store. Swype goodness without being JB'd. Unavailable now but a boon if you can get it.
Yeah I really wish Apple would approve it. That's the only thing I really miss from my Android days.
At first I didn't like it either but then have it a full week of use and fell in love with it. So much faster and easier than anything except voice texting.
