I am not sure that Swype is any faster than the stock android keyboard. Every single time I try to Swype the word "the" it comes up with a suggestion of "thr." "thr" is not even a word! This happens countless other times with other non-words or words that are never used by anyone! I thought that swype had some sort of contextual logic built in to see if the word it is suggesting is even remotely appropriate. I also find that the only two functional controls in the options menu "Word Choice Window and Speed vs. Accuracy" don't see to really have any affect on swype at all. I feel like these problems came after the initial update in September. Before this update, Swype was much easier to type with.
