    So the fascinate comes with swype. I've been trying it out and it's pretty decent. I cannot however figure out how to swype a space, so that you can swype multiple words at a time.

    After you type one word, take your finger off the keys and start the next word, it will automatically put the space in.

    There is a user manual in the options. Swype key> Options.

    You can type upper case by swyping above the keyboard. Weird stuff like that.

    * To turn off auto-space for one word swype space-backspace.

    I love swype! For me it was an unexpected discovery on my evo.

    I saw swype in the wild today. A grandmother with a new Sprint LG whose kids had put Swype and SkyMaps on the phone.

    She had looked at Droids but didn't like them. Had no clue that her LG was android.

    I have to agree. Swyping is awesome. Love my qwery but for touchcreen keypad its a definite must. The only thing I don't get though, how do you do a double letter? "Call" for example?

    According to the tutorial, which i just watched yesterday, go over the letter, then draw a circle and then go on to next letter. Tried it. It seemed to work for me. I'm still having space problems, but the tutorial pointer above was very helpful.

    I am in the minority, as I prefer Smarter Keyboard Pro over Swype.

    I haven't messed at all with putting in any 'new' keyboards. Not so sure what they would bring, since the physical space is the same. Also have no clue how to do it, which might also be a factor (g). (and haven't googled to find out how)

    Not really a problem per se in that it isn't working, just a problem in that I am not good at it. I have to train myself to just lift a finger and start a new word. My brain lifts and instantly moves finger to space bar which really slows me down.

    Manually puting in the space is how you add new words to the dictionary. Repeating this step then after space you press the swype key to remove. If you have been pressing space all the time you might have a bunch of mis-spelled words in your dictionary. You can just clear cache and data from the applications menu to fully reset.

    Eek....that's not good.

    ok...so I can't find a swype applications menu. If you're talking about the applications "drawer" and then somethign labeled Swype, there's nothing there.

    If you're talking about the options menu that comes up when you hold the little swirly S key on the keyboard, I see no option in there to delete cache and data.

    Help?

    On the homescreen click menu, settings, applications, all and then find swype and clear the cache.

    Adding a keyboard is as simple as installing an application. However, once it is installed, you need to go to the phone's "settings", scroll to "Language and Keyboards", and tap to add that keyboard. Once keyboard is "tapped", you can go to any area where you would input text. Long press on the text box, and tap "input method". Then you can pick the keyboard of your choice. Smarter Keyboard Pro lets you have a "bigger" space bar. It has been my favorite keyboard, and continues to be. Many skins (free), and many options.

    I recommended it to others, and they have likes it as well. Completely different then Swype, though...

    Hmmm...why would you want to skin a keyboard? Do the various skins provide different sizes for different keys? In the same physical space, isn't a skin keyboard just going to load some background image? Or am i missing the point?

    Smarter keyboard allows for resizing the keys. The skins are all different (one looks like iPhone, each Android hasca different look -my native soft keyboard is different than my sisters Incredible....). Skins also allow different colors, so keyboard can "match" your phone. I am using a black "cupertino " skin (as much as I dislike Apple, they have a great keyboard! Black is very easy to see...)
