View Full Version : Quick access button to easy numeric keyboard

Swype is great, but the most annoying and poorly designed thing about it is that when you select the SYM button to get to the numbers, it switches to an OVERLY COMPLICATED keyboard with a bunch of crap that most people rarely use.

And then, you have to select "Shift" and then "123" in order to get to the "easy" numeric keyboard.

This makes no sense whatsoever. This sequence should be reversed. The "123" button should appear on the default keyboard layout and take the user to the "easy" numeric keyboard. From there, if the user wants to use extended symbols, then you can provide "Shift" and "SYM" to get to the more complicated symbol keyboard.

Swype from Swype key to F (or 5), and it brings up the number pad. Do the same thing from Swype key to "SYM," and it brings up the editing tools.

That's cool, thanks!

But, still, this should be accessible as a 1 touch button, just like all other keyboards.
