[Sprint] Swype Beta keyboard for SGS3 is Sweet!
Well, I wanted to share this for anyone that , like me, didn't think Samsung did that great a job with the keyboard on the GS3. I just downloaded the Swype Beta for our phone and played with it for a while..It's really NICE. Much better imho than that frustrating thing they used in our phones! I don't know what happened, but after using the Samsung KB for a while I started getting really frustrated. Not sure what the heck happened to my old Swype KB? Hell, that's one of the biggest reasons I was sold on my OG Epic4G! It was the closest thing to a perfect KB that I had ever found. Now I'm not saying this is perfect, but I think it's a LOT better and it's free!
Anyways, for those that may not know how, just go to the Swype site, log in or register, and they'll email you a link that you'll open with your phone
. Then just follow the instructions from there. Not sure if you have to be rooted or not (I AM). It installed without even a question on my phone. Then go into you Settings>Language and Input, check the Swype keyboard if not already checked and (this is IMPORTANT) in the "Default " space make sure you select - Swype keyboard.
