    It's been a while since this was posted, but I just looked now.

    That's a pretty good development, and reminds me a little bit of Swype, though they aren't exactly greatly similar, just the way that they both predict what the word is if you aren't very accurate, but in terms of that alone, this does a great job of it.

    I like the way the keyboard shifted in that second video. [​IMG]

    Looking at the videos, it seems to record the approximate location of each press and uses those to see which keys are close, and adding all of those together it seems to extrapolate the most likely word.

    This is awesome, I saw some videos months ago. [​IMG]
    The only problem for me is that I have an iPhone, and with Google buying it I'll probably see it only on Android. [​IMG]

    As I expected, it's not on the Market yet. It might be either still in development or not scheduled for release yet.
