    I find swype to be very accurate. Magically accurate actually. There was a video on YouTube by some big tech site that compared one handed word flow to one handed typing and the typing came out faster.

    Snaq: if word flow is defined as the little "is this your next word in this sentence?" suggestions, then sure. Never used that much. The only thing that makes Swiftkey > Swype for me is the fact that random buttonmashing in the general area of what Im aiming for will get me crazy results. Not the suggestions it makes.

    Swype does the same, sure, but its a force of habit to get used to one after having used the other for a good while.

    Oh, and obviously none of this is onehanded, since... you dont type fast onehanded compared to twohanded on a device the size of a smartphone these days.

    It is cool that word flow predicts the word, but I really miss my swipe.
    It kind of irritates me that swype was a windows phone exclusive, when it first came out, and now I can't use it with my windows phone.

    I have to say that Word Flow is really quite impressive... especially for simple phrases. (I wouldn't use it to be verbose or rely on technical details though.)

    That said, I still really miss Swype from my Android days, and I'm curious to know how well it would or badly it would work on Windows Phone. I'm hoping now that Microsoft has an API to customize it, that they will release a version for WP at some point. It would certainly help differentiate WP from iOS and make it more comparable with Android. Then again, I'm naively holding out for SmartDial to be re-added to the WP dialer too.

    I miss swype from my nokia n8, n9 and also, the stock keyboard on the n9 had an incredible feel. I miss that too.

    I certainly hope Microsoft is listening, since a lot of us seem to want swype back :P it would make the phone ten timed better in my opinion.
    Just to add, this message took me two minutes to type on my 920, and I even pressed the search button by accident twice. Please bring Swype to WP8!

    Two minutes? Damn.

    Just tried, took me a minute tops, and that was with checking up at your message on my computer monitor all the time.

    I just mash my fingers near the letters and magically it said exactly what you wrote when I was finished with it.

    Once your phone really learns your habits and style of writing, Word Flow is awesome. I have typed messages out with no problem, and it takes very few strokes. It's usually 2-3 key strokes per word. It becomes even faster when they are longer words. If you type two handed, it's even faster!
