Re: Like Swype but from Microsoft
I disagree. Microsoft has been very slow to develop apps for Android. They waited so long to bring Office to mobile (Android and iOS) that they mostly missed the opportunity. I don't think a keyboard replacement is something they would willingly develop for Android first. The company behind Swype is far smaller than the all mighty Microsoft.

Re: Like Swype but from Microsoft
@nomii: I'd expect Microsoft's app to be buggy, slow and bloated in size. I've not tried this app, but I've come to expect this from all things Microsoft.

Re: Like Swype but from Microsoft

@Nasimson I agree with you there. TouchPal is really very handy to use. But I am sure that MS must be having something better than what the market is already having. If they cannot do that then its no use to develop something not user friendly under such a big banner. What do you say?

@Michelle: I've tried Swype, but better than that I've found TouchPal. It's faster to load, and remembers what I type and also offer suggestions. The flow typing is so better than touch typing.

Re: Like Swype but from Microsoft
Will the Microsoft keyboard be more stable?
I bet it is. Otherwise Android would have been the first to get it. :)

Like Swype but from Microsoft
This is an interesting development... Swype is an amazing keyboard and works well on Android. They already have aversion for iOS (though has some limitations and bugs). Will the Microsoft keyboard be more stable?
