    Haha, no problem. It was early and I hadn't had coffee yet. It actually sounded like something I would say, but I'm trying to be very nice whenever I defend Android on here. I just went back to Swiftkey Flow this week from Swype. I like this version better than the last. My last BB was a 9700 and I thought that I had to have a physical keyboard, like many users. I think most people will get used to the virtual keyboard quickly and never turn back.

    I almost always use Swype one-handed.

    I hope to see Flow on BBRY touchscreen devices as well. There is a reason Swiftkey is getting into swipe typing: they see how effective it is.

    I'm starting to feel like a complete spastic about this. I have to hold the phone in my left hand and Swype with my right index finger. Very fast and accurate. But if I hold the phone in my right hand and Swype with my right thumb, it's a train wreck.

    I was like that too at first. After thinking about it, I type the way you do a lot also. I guess that using 2 hands is easier but using one hand just takes some getting used to

    LOL. I do that as well. To be fair, I do one handed a lot to reply to short texts, but when relaxed, two handed makes me VERY accurate.

    I don't question anybody's ability to type fast on a touch screen, but I am IT Admin at my job, amid other things, and I use numbers and symbols a lot. I can't imagine a touch keyboard could ever replace that, because I don't know how you'd do that with Swype, and it seems like if you take away Swype then touch screen is almost always second place.

    Fair point (re: numbers and symbols). With Swype, you can tap and hold, our use the symbol key. I'm fairly fast on Swiftkey though.

    Swype does even up the playing field for me.
