Is swype for iPhone coming to iPhone even through jailbreak means?
Damnit... NO! SEARCH! SEARCH! DAMNIT SEARCH!
I hope apple adopts this feature as well. Used it on my wifes samsung vibrant and It almost feels so natural that you don't feel like going back to typing.
I hope forums adopt a feature where, instead of creating new topics, I can just see if someone talked about it already and get my answers that way. That'd be grand.
MacRumors search sucks, most new people don't know about Mroogle.
LOL.. I know... I think I am going to put that in my sig already..
How does it suck when I just searched for Swype and two pages of results came up. 4 threads answering how Swype will never come to the iOS.
+1 the search function does kinda blow.
Just a quick tip, if you don't like/trust the site search you can always use google.
their indexing is pretty quick (about just a few minutes after the post have bene made).
While I see your point, no one's forcing you to read these threads, you know.
I figure if I bitch and moan about it enough, people will be scared to post new topics and will search first to ease their anxiety.
No, most ignore posts like that. I know I do.
You must be new to the internet.
Seems more reasonable worded this way.
I'll end this discussion right now. Swype is not coming to the iPhone. As far as a jailbreak, it's possible, but for a standard feature Apple implements themselves, it won't happen. I've said this countless times before, but I'll say it again: Steve said "no". How do I know this? I emailed him about three months ago requesting the feature. His reply?
"Actually, its not so good. We have tested it and other variants a lot and its not nearly as good as our current keyboard."
Satisfied? Now please, do me a favor, and stop asking!
Does anyone know if Apple is planing to bring Swype to the iPhone??
do not want
Ok now it's almost like you're gloating bc SJ actually responded to you. THis is at least the second thread in two days where i've seen you reply including that you emailed him. Who gives a rats ass? So since HE says its not so good, then it must not be? Funny because MOST people that use it seem to really like it. So who is right? SJ or the public? I'm sure you think it's SJ. Just a shot in the dark on that one.
If Apple was fair, they'd allow people the CHOICE to have a different text input. Ha, so much for that.
I like your fix... and that wouldn't be such a bad thing, would it?
Umm... I'm pretty sure you can just download it from the Android Market and install it into your iPhone, right?
You can try it for free in the app store. Personally i think it's meh. Perhaps with practice it could be faster than typing, but there's nothing worse than having to fix corrective text...
Correction: Not gloating, just informing. So what if he replied? There's no need to swear about it. I never said it wasn't good. He said it wasn't. There's a difference. I've used it before, and think it's just okay. It hasn't exactly "blown my mind". It would take lots of practice time for me to master it, which is something I don't have much of or even care to do. It all comes down to personal preference: some people like Swype, others hate it. I don't doubt that Apple isn't working on they're own version of Swype/ voice to text input, but yes, I think we should have a choice. I never said I was against that!
this may be an old thread but...
Just gonna leave that there...
EDIT: This looks like a more reputable site.
