And now I must speak of Swype

vampirefan emailed me yesterday as follows:

http://www.swypeinc.com/ ... damn. it's not available for my phone!!!

I had never heard of Swype. Where the hell have I been? I went to the link, got that "I WANT!" gleam in my eye, and proceeded immediately to my phone-geek go-to site, XDA Developers, and acquired Swype for my particular phone.

It is AWESOME! In case I'm not the last person on Planet Geek to have heard of it, Swype provides an onscreen keyboard that lets you drag your finger from key to key to spell out words. Swype does all the guesswork, and it's incredibly accurate. I can't stop playing with it.

You don't believe it will work, and it just does.

My hardware keyboard had begun to fail (grrr SonyEricsson) and it was a big part of my dissatisfaction with what's still a relatively new phone. Between Swype and an updated ROM, I've brought this expensive little sucker back to life.

Swype was developed for Windows Mobile, apparently, and is now being deployed for Android.
