Swype

February 6, 2010

Swype is a great app for typing faster. It uses a technique where you don’t lift your finger but instead swypes it between the letters the word you want to type consists of. This works remarkably well. When many words match you get a list to choose from.

If the default word (chosen by Swype) is the correct one you can just continue swyping the next word. Also remember you don’t have to make a space after every word, just continue swyping the next and a space will be automagically added. Swypetastic, huh?

Swype is not in a final version yet but follow this guide to install it: http://droidmuff.in/downloads/swype-preview/

Alternatives to the Android Market

July 7, 2009

I guess some of you already tried the browser version of the Android Market (not the version available from an Android phone).  It basically sucks, it lacks many basic features like search, categories, user ratings and comments. It is not really clear why it is so, also because the phone version really works great.

So if you want to look for an Android application from your desktop, there are a couple of interesting websites you should check out: Cyrket and especially Androlib, which is very complete and also available in different languages.
