Swype, a very smart virtual keyboard makes typing easier

From Mossberg's office (WSJ) this am: "Swype ( allows you to trace a word out on the keyboard in one continuous swiping motion, from one letter to the next. Raising a finger off the screen after the last letter of each word starts a new word. Predictive technology guesses what word you're trying to spell according to what would make the most sense. Special swiping gestures capitalize words and add punctuation. Though using Swype requires an adjustment period, typing with it feels more fun and game-like than tapping out individual letters on a glass screen. For people who don't like typing with an on-screen keyboard, it's a viable solution"

It might be very helpful for "hand2mouth", the disabled tech blogger. I don't know how to reach him
