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

I've had a couple of upgrades to my Amazon-bought SwiftKey, this week. Flow is now included.

Re: Swiftkey vs Swype
There's a reason I've used SwiftKey since the alpha. It was the best then and it's only gotten better over time, but I don't really care for the flow/swype stuff, it's not that accurate to me. But I did just use it to type this so it's not too bad on SwiftKey

noted for future reference on my Note 2

Re: Swiftkey vs Swype
I've been using the paid version of SwiftKey for a couple years on my epic 4g, also tested the flow beta on my note 2 when I migrated over. On the Note I prefer Swype, I feel it's more intuitive, and its accuracy is better hence it's faster. I tried the recent SwiftKey update on the paid version that now includes flow, but I still feel it's not as fluid or accurate as Swype. I get 3 times the amount of errors with SwiftKey that SwiftKey creates that I don't get with Swype. I could care less about which one looks better. I prefer functionality over looks.

Re: Swiftkey vs Swype
I like the numbers on top, without holding the keys, and hand writing compatibilities with S Pen on the Samsung keyboard. I love the arrow keys and ten keyboard on the SwiftKey.
When it comes between Swype keyboard and SwiftKey keyboard I would choose SwiftKey. SwiftKey is better in choosing the right words and has more features than Swype.
The only thing I would like to see in SwiftKey keyboard is numbers on top, without holding the keys, and hand writing compatibilities with S Pen. Then SwiftKey would be the most perfect keyboard.

Kii keyboard has the swype like functions, plus the top number keys and a great user dictionary. At the end of the day, it's my daily driver. Ymmv.

Re: Swiftkey vs Swype
I like the stock Samsung keyboard. It has the swype feature.. Why download another app that does essentially the same thing?
