    Always. I compose WordPress blogposts and also draft legal documents on the go. It comes handy always. Its predictions after learning is absolutely smooth

    Always, regardless of how many hands I'm typing with.

    Yep. I'm not the best at it but getting better. Love the feature as long as I don't accidentally select the wrong word.

    Duh! Why not use it? It is awesome to see eight or nine letter words come up after a few taps let alone almost all the commonly used ones immediately!

    Obviously OP hasn't read about the keyboard here, he states that no one commented about it within the last 6 months, sure smh. I use it regularly and I write tons of emails and documents on my devices, flick flick flick and Yes its still the BEST keyboard out there! You can't compare the others to it, no contest!

    I typed this using the BlackBerry swipe up feature and all I can say is that it is pretty amazing

    I use it all the time.. so much so that I prefer it over two handed typing...
    One trick that I use is that when I don't see the suggestion that I need I flick up the closest suggestion and back space to get the right word...

    Good to see most of you guys on CB using that feature.

    I don't type much one handed, I'm so used to using both thumbs, which I got from the old BB days. Man I love those keyboards...

    If I'm using one hand I use it all the time, it's almost useful for that. But I also use it when typing up a long word but that's just cause I'm lazy

    When typing one handed I almost always use it. When typing two handed I usually use it on longer words that I don't need to type out every letter, or on words that I'm not 100% sure of the spelling. I'd say for two handed typing I'm probably in 70% (maybe 60?) normal typing and 30% (maybe 40) flick typing.

    Note: I'm a college student. So while we have our fair share of meetings, emails, etc. My usage also applies to using my keyboard for social media and texting as well.

    Either way my Z10 (and it applies to the Z30) keyboard is absolutely the best keyboard I've ever used. When I use my friends phones I just feel like those virtual keyboards are so out of date. But in fairness, I do believe you need to spend some time on any keyboard to get used to it before passing complete judgment, rather than just occasional use.

    I've used it since I got my Z10 and it's very useful. I actually turned it off today to see how I I'd fare without it and I promptly turned it back on. I prefer it to the Android keyboards I have encountered, I dunno how my friends type on their S4's with that android keyboard

    Btw... I also prefer flicking the words up because it inserts a space already, I hardly ever use the space key now ...

    One hand, two hands... still use it all the time whenever appropriate..
    Novel feature? Fingerprint scanner, eye-tracking ability,... now those are novel features.

    I don't use the feature much in normal, two-handed, use. But when I broke my right wrist and lost functionality in my fingers 3 weeks ago, it was a revelation!

    What I'm saying is that when you are limited to one-handed use the swiping really helps.

    Only when I'm typing with one hand or if I'm not holding my phone, like when my phone is on the table. In fact, I'm using the swipe feature right now.
