droid swype

So you think you can Swype? Many of you remember the video of Swype on the Samsung Omnia II where the Guinness World Record for fastest text was broken, and this seems to have sparked some inspiration amongst many. There are quite a few videos, where many come close to breaking this record themselves, only to miss by a few seconds, or a minor spelling error to get in the way. One of the most impressive videos, is this speed deamon typing this rather intricate phrase on his Motorola Droid, and completing it 4 seconds faster then the previous record. Think you got what it takes to beat this record? We would love to see it, as would Samsung on their YouTube page, so be sure to check out the details of this contest here. For those unsure, the phrase for this contest is:

The razor-toothed piranhas of the genera Serrasalmus and Pygocentrus are the most ferocious freshwater fish in the world. In reality they seldom attack a human.

Be sure to check out this sweet video after the jump.

Time shattered in the Swype challenege again


Don't go through so much trouble to get Swype. SlideIT is the same thing, and a free version is available in the Market. There is a paid version to, but I'm not sure what advantages it has as the free one seems to have no limitations. I am faster with SlideIT than I am with the Droid physical keyboard. Still needs me keyboard for gaming though, ESPECIALLY emulators. :)

I've looked all over the market and tried using QR codes but can't find SlideIT on the market. Did they take it down temporarily? I'm using ShapeWriter for now til I can try SlideIT.
