TouchPal Keyboard Highlights:
** TouchPal Curve **
TouchPal Curve is the next generation of swiping technology. It brings prediction to sliding. In Swype, you have to slide the complete word, and you’ll easily get lost with long words. Using the Predictive Sliding technology in TouchPal Curve, you may pause in the middle of a word to get prediction. You can slide only a very small part to finish a long word.

** Blind Type **
With TouchPal’s patented mistyping correction technology, blind type is no longer a dream! You may type 50% faster with TouchPal Keyboard because you don’t need to worry about making mistakes.

** Smart Prediction **
TouchPal Keyboard predicts words in a smart way. The prediction is based on sophisticated language models and machine learning. It also learns your input pattern and optimize the prediction that works best for you ONLY! It may save up to 80% of keystrokes.

I definitely want to get involved in this. But I would prefer not to post my email address.... Hopefully CooTek will make that possible.

comparing to an old swype version (in the video) isn't a fair move. Also "Why bother to use unlicensed Swype on your phone?" isn't true, everyone can get a free license by signing up for the swype beta.
I'd like to take a look at this app though, just to see how it really compares to Swype. But why not just post it here instead of forcing people to spam here?

Thanks for your comments. This is a private beta testing, so we won't publish our build here. Instead, we will send the build to those who applied seperately.

    Language Packs Broken

    +1 All language packs links are bad, but I found the correct ones!

    BAD link (Original)
    http://www.cootek.com/cootek/_d/v4_8ime/SpanishPack.apk

    Correct Link
    www.cootek.com/_d/v4_8ime/SpanishPack.apk

    I think it should work with all languages.

    thanks,
    so i have to wait until the bug is fixed. (like the curve funktion)
    I think so, I've just dealt with it because curve is so sweet. :) Quite annoying, though.

    EDIT: so I installed the v5_hotfix. The secondary characters appear on the keys with curve enabled now (though the intro is in Chinese, and the options are a bit different--when you enable curve it will download a module.) If you want to check it out yourself:
