I kind of think swype for resistive phones on any os is kind of a waste of time.
Anyone used to a capacitive screen will have trouble with a resistive screen because the technique is slighly different, and will need some adaptation.
As I have been trying it out, I can tell you that Swype on resistive is not a waste of time and works perfectly well.
"kind of think" is really not good enough.
There are very real advantages to resistive screens (for example the other thread on here about how robust the N97s are - that robustness is partly down to resistive screen ability to withstand inpacts).
Never felt comfortable with Nokia's 'left-aligned' layout of QWERTY. Finally got a standard QWERTY layout on my 5800. But, it cant keep up with my typing speed while used as a tap-to-type keyboard. Any chance of it getting more responsive when it gets out of beta? How is it on other platforms when used for tap-typing? Anyone? Thanks.
