If you’re not happy with the text entry system on your Xperia X10 (and let’s face it many aren’t happy with the standard keyboard) then you’ll be happy to know that the Skype Beta for Android is now open, although only for a limited time.
I’ve been playing with it for the last day or so and believe the hype, it’s super fast and easy to write text. As the name suggests, the app involves tracing the word you want to write by starting from the first letter to the end letter without removing your finger from the screen. It’s very intuitive and once you start using it I imagine going back to normal text entry will be very difficult.
Swype is available now for English, Spanish and Italian with support for more languages coming soon. You will need to go to this website, register with an email address and then you’ll be sent the link to download and register the app. At least give it a try, you may just be pleasantly surprised. Also, check out these short tips and tricks videos for getting the most out of it.
