Why Swype When You Can 'Swift'

Some have dubbed alternative keyboard and input mechanism Swype a "killer app" for Android. To me, however, learning to use Swype is like learning the early Palm Pilot language "graffiti." A much more natural and better keyboard experience for Android, without the learning curve, comes in the form of SwiftKey.

SwiftKey uses word order prediction to minimize the need to type letters. I rarely have to type more than two letters to get the appropriate word and sometimes I'm just selecting words from the menu and not typing on the keypad at all. 

When SwiftKey launched in public beta I wrote about it at Screenwerk. To all those considering joining the Swype beta I'd recommend purchasing SwiftKey instead.
