Until you wake up one morning (for me this was yesterday) and realise that you've practically made yourself illiterate and no amount of technology can interpret your furious swiping. I have found myself getting irate with the keyboard because it didn't determine the right word when on reflection, I hadn't swiped anything like the correct sequence of letters.
Just tried the new SwiftKey, while it does fix a few of the stock jellybean annoyances, it still has some real issues for me.
1. It doesn't work in address bars
2. It is really difficult to go back and correct words (the most important thing)
3. It doesn't recognise double letter scribbling
4. Swipe to delete doesn't work
5. It seems a bit laggy to me
So all in all, if you could combine Swype and SwiftKey together, throw a bunch of cuss words into the dictionary, we might be on to a winner.
