Dear Software Experts,

You will be familiar at least with the basic methods of entering text faster than 'key-by-key' in Android. I'm talking about the swiping and the auto-correcting methods.

While I'm not so sure about the swiping (and I don't know shorthand either), I do know that if I had the same auto-correction I have when I type in Android when I type with a keyboard, it would open up doors to a substantially increased wpm.

To be more exact, the feature I'm looking for is to not have to hit the keys neither in exact place or exact order to make the entry turn out as I intended.

Thanks!
Yours sincerely/
Mark

Thanks for bringing this cleaver software to my attention. I'm going to look into if xneur can help me, but I doubt it. I'm basically looking for software that will let me type really sloppy, but still see the words I want to type.

Very best/
Mark

I haven't gotten into it yet, but I see this is more or less exactly what I was looking for. It had to be out there. Thanks a lot Michael!
