I just threw $5 into this one. Never funded something like this before but its actually something I might use if it works as promised. ("IF" of course!)

I am not sure if that is a good thing , it is bad enough when people misspell when this gets bigger the people that use it the longest pretty much will lose how to spell properly I was embarrassed for him when I took my nephew who was 18 yr s old at the time to a bank to help him set up a bank account and when they asked him to sign his name he printed it this was because he never really had to sign anything because in school they have it set up the Know student gets left behind , in other word there is no failure and because of this he didn't learn this basic skill . so if you take this type of tech and introduce it to this generation or even the next gen then will lose abilities that most of us take advantage of .

Something like this makes my brain hurt! How can you possibly be accurate with a keyboard like that? The brain is used to the qwerty keyboard and hence why we can use it so well. Switch to DVORAK and see how long it takes you to retrain your brain over again then go back to a QWERTY.

I personally don't understand this keyboard either, but I guess I'll have to try it when it's out and see how it works.
So far though, I absolutely love SwiftKey, so it's going to be a tough switch.

Swiftkey is probably the best keyboard replacement for Android right now. So many people never use it and have no clue what they are missing out on.
