yes, I'm curious on how this app works, a new typing method sounds really cool but screenshots don't give me any help...

This alternate typing method comes pre-loaded on some Android phones. I have a Samsung galaxy note, and it came as an option with the phone. On my phone, it works incredibly well. I can't speak to this app, but it doesn't appear to be an official app from the Swype company. I'm pretty dubious, but you never know.

Swype on Android is awesome. I can type several times faster than on my iPad or iPod. Oh how I wish Apple would allow alternate input methods without having to resort to jailbreaking or copy/paste from dedicated input apps.

I adore Swype on Android devices. A lot of people consider it a major feature upgrade, not just an alternative or an app. It would be great if this one performs well, though the only posted review on iTunes right now does not bode well; too bad.
