Sliding Keyboard updated to v1.8

First off, we recommend turning your light on and off continuously throughout the above YouTube video. Extra bass helps too. Anyway, the above demo is of Sliding Keyboard for Windows Phone 7, version 1.8. We recently covered the app at verson 1.7, a day before the update was submitted.

What's changed? The major improvement is speed of rendering text after you've swiped your heart out on-screen.  Smaller relevant dictionaries, better localization support (with multiple keyboard layouts) and an option to translate text has been thrown in.

You can download Sliding Keyboard from the Marketplace for 79p ($.99). For those who already use the app, keep an eye out for an available update.

Sliding Keyboard updated to v1.8

I honestly do not know why anyone would really want to use this keyboard in the way it's limited. You have to open the keyboard app, "swype" in what you want, then select a button for default apps to paste into? I love the WP7 keyboard. If Microsoft allowed 3rd party devs to extend or replace it, and someone missed or loves the "swype" concept, more power to them. But, this hodge-podge mess is rediculous.

LOL! Failure at around 0:26The only fair way tko rebid this windows phony allocation is to use the sliding keyboard tko type those cement out within the actual adp , Then copy and Padre it here
