    Anyone that has a Priv, do yourself a favor and install Swype! It's awesome and blows away the BB virtual keyboard imo.

    There is a free version and a payed app as well.

    Nothing replaces a physical keyboard, but this is good for on the go.

    Yes. I absolutely love it!

    I always liked Swype on my Androids. Just liked my BB keyboard better.

    Now I have the best of both worlds!

    I can never get myself to use Swype and enjoy it. I personally love the BlackBerry Virtual Keyboard.

    If and when I switch to the Priv this beautiful BlackBerry vkb will remain right where it is. I hated swype. Swiftkey is about as far as I'd go IF the BlackBerry keyboard wasn't available. Each to their own but I'll not be joining you with swype. Lol

    I had installed Swiftkey playing around, and when I went to change it, the Priv warned me that doing so would have adverse effects on my physical keyboard, so I did not switch it and then uninstalled swiftkey.

    Swype is great. The BlackBerry vkb is better.

    It was basically built by Swype anyway.

    No, I was referring to BlackBerry's keyboard being built on SwiftKey, not Swype.

    I tried Swype on two different Androids, last time on my Note Edge, but I quickly delete it. I don't know why exactly, but Swype delivered one of the worst keyboard experiences for me :/
