    I noticed that the Swype application was listed in my installed applications. But I'm not sure where I can select to use it as my primary keyboard......

    Anyone have a suggestion??

    Thanks!

    long press on any place were you would input text. a sub menu will pop up saying input method. and you should see swipe keyboard as one of the options.

    Is Swype an app that is used by many here? Advantages? Disadvantages?

    I LOVE Swype, typing is much faster, just hit the first letter of the word and drag your finger across the screen to the other letters to type the word.

    Disadvantage, learning curve, overall getting used to it, I didn't like it at first and swore it off, tried it again a few months later and I can't go back.

    Thanks Scott. Does the age of the user enter into the formula?

    Can it be mastered by old farts?

    Might hurt the learning curve, but I think you can do it! :D
