    Ask someone what the best Android keyboard is, and there's a pretty good chance that Swype will be the first word out of their mouth.

    At first glance, Swype looks like any other keyboard. Letters, numbers, a few symbols -- your basic on-screen keyboard. But it's much, much more than that. Instead of tapping on each key to spell a word, you swipe -- thus the name -- from one letter to the next to spell a word.

    Yes, Swype feels pretty strange at first. But you need to give it a try. And stick with it. Swype takes a little practice, but you'll quickly the hang of it. And don't worry about hitting every letter exactly. Swype is smart. It knows what you're trying to spell. Trust in Swype.
