I find typing on QWERTY phones easier and faster than on touch phones that lack the classic tactile feel. But recently, I have been feeling strongly inclined towards the touch phones primarily because of the revolutionary technology called Swype.
Some of you might have been already using it without even knowing that it’s Swype at work. Just like iPhone has been declared a revolution, I would say Swype has every bit of chance to be declared a revolution soon. Okay, but what is it? You want to know, right?

What is Swype?

Swype is a new patented text input mechanism, introduced by Swype Inc., that allows you to input text in a easier and faster way while using the standard QWERTY keyboard layout of your touchscreen phone. In fact, it is so fast that you could possibly achieve typing speed of 40 words or more per minute which is simply phenomenal.

But why Swype?

  • Innovative, faster and easier way to type text using standard QWERTY layout
  • Offers word suggestions for corrections
  • Learns new words automatically
  • Easy switching to regular keyboard
  • Supports foreign languages
  • Inserts spaces automatically
  • 65,000 words database

How Swype Text input works?

In contrast the way we use the QWERTY keyboard in touch phones, Swype allows you to type words without typing or pressing a single key. When using Swype, you simply need to trace a path across the screen keyboard and Swype does the rest. Is it that simple? Yes, it actually is. And you can use your finger or your phone’s stylus whatever your preference maybe.

The moment you trace a path across the keyboard, Swype’s patented algorithm analyzes the path pattern and immediately recognizes the word you intended to type. For example — if you were to type the word “quick”, you simply need to connect its letters by moving your finger over letter ‘q’ through ‘u’ then ‘i’ followed by ‘c’ and finally stopping at the letter ‘k’ on the keyboard; see a graphical representation of the same below.

Swype

At first, this may sound too time consuming but once you get used to it, it would take merely a second or less in fact. Check out a video demonstration below —

Best of all, you don’t need to be accurate, Swype is quite forgiving and understands completely that to err is human :)

So next time when you go shopping for a new touch phone, look for Swype support for sure. Till then, happy typing.

We all are addicted to Facebook because it’s best way to have fun and make friends but when it comes to chat with friends on Facebook I just quit. I always prefer to stay offline when it comes to Facebook chat. But to stay in touch with my Facebook friends I prefer to use few tools which are user-friendly and easy to install.

Here are 5 best Facebook Chat Instant messengers:

Digsby:

Digsby is one of my favorite. The main reason I love Digsby is that I can use all useful messengers like Facebook chat, Gtalk, Yahoo etc. Thus you can login to all instant messengers simultaneously. The layout looks good and a user-friendly chat client. Worth giving a try.

Digsby

Chitchat:

ChitChat is a Facebook chat messenger. It is especially for Facebook chat. A simple layout and provides you all basic yet useful features like notifications, chat tabs, status alerts, saving history etc. If you are looking for an easy to use chat client for Facebook then you can surely consider Chitchat Instant messenger.

Pidgin:

Pidgin is bit similar like Digsby which supports other instant messengers also apart from Facebook. It is good when you are looking for a many networks like Yahoo, Windows Live Messenger, AIM etc in one messenger. Pidgin doesn’t support audio and video feature while chat.

Worth Reading:

  • Facebook is Revamping its Chat Feature
  • Facebook Voice Chat Application Vivox Chat

Meebo:

Meebo is bit different than above messengers. Meebo is a web based messenger that is you don’t require to download or install any software, you can chat instantly from Meebo website. You will get all required feature on Meebo like status alerts, emoticons, notifications etc.

Gabtastik:

Gabtastik also supports Facebook and Gtalk chat. It is having good interface and easy to navigate between messengers. Unlike Disby, it takes less memory and display is also small so don’t distract you from work.

My last post was iPhone 4 unboxing pictures and here are images of Sim cutter which I used to convert my Airtel Mini sim into Micro sim.

In iPhone 4 you can’t use normal sim and you need to cut down Sim into Mini sim in order to insert your Simcard into iPhone.

If you have a Sim Cutter, it can be done within minute but in case if you don’t have access to Sim cutter, you might like to check out Ihackintosh post on manually cutting your Mini sim into Micro sim.
