Input on mobile devices - The long awaited follow up

Remember my last post?  I said I was going to give the Swype beta a try?  That was back in January.  I'm still using it and can't see a reason not to continue with it.  It's a very good blend of gesture based input with the keyboard layout I expect.  That's not saying it's perfect.  I still sometimes struggle with things like entering times because including the colon (:) triggers the auto complete.  I also wish entering "your" would allow me to select "you're" from the options of what you might have meant.  But these are quibbles and on the whole I'm very happy.

I thought you might like to know.
