As the title goes, which one do you guys prefer? After playing with swift today, I went back to Swype. I like it better. I am think that even the stock keyboard is nice, but the multitude Swype gestures available on Swype really make it powerful. Keep in mind that I use the Swype/flow functions in these, I almost never tap.

I was using SwiftKey on my Nexus and actually bought the app well quite frankly I enjoy it more than the stock keyboard.

Also, SwiftKey has a function called 'Float' which is essentially Swype. I still don't use it, but then just love the feel of SwiftKey. Not sure if this feature is available with the free version.

Yea, swiftkey flow is the feature I was talking about when comparing both.

I tend to use SwiftKey on my Nexus 7 but I'm sticking with Swype on the phone. I've been using the Swype beta since the Vibrant and it's a bit difficult to get used to different swipe gestures.

Re: Swiftkey vs Swype
SwiftKey Flow (now part of SwiftKey itself) is by far better keyboard than swype, than stock, than anyone. Period. The only one that maybe looks promising is fleksy, and I didn't tried yet, so by now, sk has the best word prediction, imho.

I wanna try the flow thing but I bought my swiftkey from Amazon a while ago and it's still on version 1.1.19. Anyone know if I can upgrade?

Re: Swiftkey vs Swype
I'm back on Swype. I was using Swift key flow beta until it expired yesterday. I got a notification that said swift key corrected 175 of my typos. Actually, the typos were due to swiftkey's poor predictive text I would slowly drag my thumb over N...O...T and the word "not" would be in the predictive box, but as soon as I went to E (for Note), it would change and input the word "busy" .. delete...pound out letter by letter
