    Oh no. First no Swype and now no live wallpapers?

    I've had these on phones. I just couldn't get the hang of Swype. and the novelty of 3D aquariums, floating clouds, waterfalls, etc, wore off long time ago.

    All of time and space, everything that ever was or
    Yeah, live wallpaper never appealed to me. On a phone or the desktop. Seems pointless.

    Swype rocks. It makes typing much faster and easier.

    As to live wallpapers, I like my seasonal themes. Nothing beats having a blizzard with a forest of Xmas lighted pine trees.

    Swype is for old people (5).

    Lulz...or it's too hard for you to learn? :devil:

    I've had BBs for many years, moved to BB Storm virtual keyboard...then got an Android with Swype. Best typing solution on a phone.

    I type really fast on touch screens and the few times I've tried Swype, it only made me slower because the dragging of your thumb across the screen takes more time and effort. I'm sure if I spent more time with it I could become faster and more efficient, but the fact that it hasn't really taken off is telling, I think, of its overall efficacy against regular touch typing.

    Remember--Kids these days stopped using their forefingers ages ago (remember those stories about studies done on teens years ago where they all used their thumbs to press doorbells/elevator buttons while everyone else almost always used their index fingers?)

    I actually swype with my thumb most of the time...because it means I can type on the phone completely one handed at a reasonable speed. If I want to go faster, I can use a second hand to hold it and then use my index finger...but most of the time I just one hand it.

    I very rarely type on my phone. I use Dragon far more often.

    See? That's the thing with Swype -- it's not readily apparent which finger is the best for input because I had major issues 'swyping' with my index finger.

    Plus, I like being able to type with both thumbs while walking and maintaining accuracy on a regular touchscreen keyboard.

    Me + walking + phone in left hand + swyping with right index finger = major inaccuracies
