An alternative to the Android virtual keyboard, the Swype virtual keyboard allows you to input text by swiping the finger with one continuous finger or stylus motion across the screen keyboard. Based on testing, speed, and accuracy are equal to or better than the traditional keyboard-tapping method. You can activate the Swype keyboard by pressing and holding in a text field, wait for popup to appear, click Input Method, and then select Swype.
In the image to the left, the word "mind" was generated from tracing the path shown to the right in a fraction of a second, by roughly aiming to pass through the letters of the word. A key advantage to Swype is that there is no need to be very accurate, enabling very rapid text entry.

If you want to find out for yourself - simply Google Samsung Gravity Smart internal memory errors & you'll see the sea of complaints about about this phone's ridiculously low internal memory.
I bought this Samsung Gravity Smart phone in November 2011 primarily because of the Wi-Fi calling, large screen & QWERTY keyboard thinking I really only needed to be able to make calls when I'm at home & my crappy TMobile reception fades out. This phone has a shamefully non-existent 150 Megabytes of internal memory compared to most phones that have at least 4 gigabytes.
So what does that mean for you?;
it means that you'll never be able to install ANY APP what so ever. It also means that you won't be able to receive any text messages because the memory will always be too low to allow the phone to receive messages. You'll be able to send them, but you'll daily have to delete every text message.
Trust me even if you're thinking that's okay, I'll only be using this phone for just this or that, I don't need a bunch of apps or games - it won't be okay... it won't :( You will be frustrated.
Even though it has virtually non-existent internal memory, T-Mobile & Samsung still chose to ship it preinstalled with 100 Mb of junk software that further helps to make the problem worst.
Please save yourself the inevitable headache that is sure to come & buy a different phone.
Also when you call T-Mobile to complain about the phone not functioning properly, you'll literally get a rep that tells you to check to see if apps are installed on the SD card.Read more ›
I decided I didn't want to live with this phone for 2 more years, so I bit the bullet and paid the restocking fee and got a Samsung Exhibit ll 4G phone. It is 1,000% better, had 4 Gigs of memory versus 800 megs on the Gravity, a faster processor, and the list goes on and on. It cost about $100 more than the Gravity Smart, and is well worth it.
The sad part about this is that T-Mobile knows this is an issue with the Gravity Smart, and yet they will not wave the restocking fee. That's poor customer service in my opinion.
And then the updates started. Not with Android itself, but with the 4,385,621 pre-loaded apps that I could not remove from the phone without rooting (which I am terrified to do, see above comment about specs). Updating these pre-loaded apps made them bigger and I got a low-memory warning. So I moved all of my own apps to the SD card. No problem, it was plenty easy, and I figured that would give me room to add even more apps. Then another update of those pre-loaded apps caused another low-memory warning. Funny enough, my own apps don't update that often. Anyway, I fixed the low-memory problem that time by hitting the "clear data" button on many of the unused apps clearing up more room. And then another update came along. Sigh. I scrolled through my list of apps to see which I could do without and deleted a few, and I learned to shut down the phone, turn it back on, and force-stop the apps that I'd never even opened that were running in the background somehow. I did this about every-other day. And then there were more updates and more low-memory warnings. So I deleted the apps of mine that I didn't use often enough to be worth this hassle, and found replacements for some of them that were smaller whose functions I did want to keep. Lather, rinse, repeat.Read more ›
