    I use Swype all the time. It's really great. It's the only app I've paid for in the last two years.

    If you go in settings> keyboard, tap on your language, you can see some options, you can turn it off (last option)

    Yeah I love it! Definitely one of my favorite features from 8.1. The only thing is, since I use my right thumb, sometimes I end up hitting enter by accident when I'm reaching to the left of the screen.

    Question: Is there a way to capitalize a letter within a sentence while swiping?

    I'm using every opportunity I can to try to become proficient with it. So far, I like it.

    The swype style messaging is much faster than tapping out 1 letter at a time. Takes a little getting used to, but major speed and accuracy gains.

    I like it so much that I'm replying to the forum just to use it. Nothing more to say.

    The only thing I don't like about the swipe keyboard is punctuation. I wish there was an apostrophe on the keyboard so I could force the possessive or a contraction on some words. It guesses sometimes, but not on everything. If I could swipe over to an apostrophe and then continue I'd be much happier with that. Also, I feel like it'd be faster if instead of having to lift my finger per each word, if I could swipe down to the space bar and then swipe up to the next letter I'm using and have it parse that.

    Still, for one-handed use, this is great. I still prefer to use my thumbs with each letter individually when I'm using both hands though.

    It's strange to break the old two-thumbed habit, but it really is surprisingly accurate.

    Oh yes! This is one feature I sorely missed when I moved from the Galaxy S3 to Windows phone (HTC 8x at that time). Its the one feature in 8.1 that made me do the developer preview.

    I find I am using Word Flow more and more.
    I was the classic two thumb typist in landscape more. I thought the Word Flow style wasn't going to suit me. I gave it an honest try and am finding that I am getting used to it easier than I thought I would. Also, it seems better at predictive typing than the other method. I find that I don't need to type the full word as much and can rely on it to pick the proper word sooner.
    It really does seem faster as well. To me, that's a huge improvement. Of course, I use Cortana to transcribe whenever I can and find she is actually VERY accurate simply listening to my voice.

    Yes its amazing, when I forget to use it I make myself type it all over again just to get used to it. I also see Microsoft is write in starting to remember the patterns for words, and I can text without the teacher seeing me in class, hehe.

    Something about the keyboard that really annoys me is the mode, look at it in Internet Explorer vs. Messaging. It doesn't fill the whole screen in IE.

    To capitalize a word in the middle of a sentence, tap it to highlight, then hit the shift key. Hit shift 2x for all CAPS.

    Yes, we know it is not the Swype keyboard, but one could make the argument that swype, while a brand name, has also become a plain old noun that covers this type of input.

    Other examples of licensed brand names that are also now common accepted nouns: Kleenex, Crockpot, Band-Aid, Post-it....
    Not everyone is like that (although I'll admit most people are) I use "tissue" unless it's actually a Kleenex, I own an actual CrockPot, use actual band-aids for boo-boos and bandages for things that are more severe (although the ones I have are also made by the same company) Its a pet peeve for me when someone asks for a Coke and they mean an orange soda just because they don't feel like saying 3 syllables (and yes I've known people like that) and then you need to have a conversation about which "Coke" they wanted rather than an actual Coke. In fact, those conversations where what drove me as a kid to be specific about what I'm asking for as much as I can... :)

    Sometimes.

    I had always claimed I didn't like it, but when I remember to use it I have to say it's nice.

    My main "problem" is that I type in two languages so if I get used to it and it will be annoying for the other language.
    yeah, the two language is a problem, but i love it anyways, at least now i know i don't have to hold ENG to change it to ESP, i can just tap it. (i'm definetely deleting Portuguese -don't even remember why i have it. and either Espaņol from espaņa or mexico)


    I find myself trying to write numbers with swype, that's how it has changed my keyboard usage. i LOVE it. and i think "Duck u! piece of shirt" is quite fun.

    ALSO i have added F*ck, you, sh*t and others to my spanish dictionary.
