    We can agree to disagree then. Swype is not the keyboard from Microsoft.
    What are we agreeing to disagree about? We all know it's not "Swype." I just think the word swype might end up a generic noun like the others I mentioned.

    I am using it sporadically.

    Everytime I type I try to use it for a couple of words to slowly train my brain.

    Using a screen protectror makes things a lil awkward but it still works.

    That it will be generic. I don't want it to be.

    So, WP does not have a Swype keyboard as implied by the OP.

    YES!!! This is the one and only thing I miss from my 'Droid days. WordFlow seems to predict/resolve much better than Swype did also. Well worth the price of admission.

    Absolutely! This and the notification center are the two most important upgrades in 8.1. I can type 3X faster using word flow.

    The 925 screen it's too larger. I think this is a very good add for devices that have screen lower than 4" or less.

    But sometimes I use, it's very good.

    Ahh, yeah, I'm with you as well. I don't want it to be either.

    swype is perfect for one hand typing. but if you got two hands available, use two.

    I use it all the time. Especially since the screen is so small on my 620.

    It just rocks. No need to pay for a keyboard in case it is launched. Please, bring some themes for it.

    Meh, cool to give the option but I don't really care for it. Maybe after some more practice.

    Uhh... Yeah, just let me google that on Bing lol

    I use this feature quite a lot now, and I am improving all the time. It'll even get words on the same row of letters right: "quite", "row" "all" lol.
    Loving it!

    It is a great feature after you get used to it.

    Easily faster than tapping out the letters one at a time.

    It's really amazing. I've been using it a lot and I'm surprised how quick and accurate it gets, there are some miss-typed words but not enough to cause issues.

    I love it, it's the only way I type now. Missed it so much from Android! And yes, everyone just calls it swipe, the name has gone generic, like it or not, lol!

    Don't throw stuff at me but it's just not for me. I make more errors now than I did before. I've looked and looked but don't see anywhere to shut it off. Did I miss it somewhere?

    *Throws rock*

    I'll tell you how to turn it off, but in exchange you have to promise to try it a bit longer. Once somebody gets the hang of it, you can fly through letters..

    Anyway, it's under Settings | Keyboard then tap on your keyboard name, English (United States) in my case, and uncheck 'Type as I swipe through letters'

    I did NOT know that extra settings menu was there. Thank you.

    But, you have a deal. I will leave it on through the weekend and see how it goes.

    Yeah, me too so far. I've never used swype keyboards before although I'm going to give it some time. Perhaps with some seat time we'll get quicker.

    The problem: I'm used to normal typing.
    The solution: Forcing myself to use the swype style.
    Result: Amazed at how fast and accurate it is and want to use it more!

    My problem is that I am used to using space while swiping because I was using swift key in Android for about a year. So with this keyboard I am typing soy slow

    You people use it with one hand or both ? If I have the two hands available I use the normal keyboard, with one I swype.

    It was slightly difficult to adjust to initially since I'm so used to (and very good at) typing with both hands/tapping the screen. But a number of clumsy attempts later I can't live w/o it, it increases my accuracy too!
