Re: Your favorite text input method

I basically bought the Touch to be a mini-laptop. I can type like 90 wpm with a regular keyboard (braggin'), and my plan was to learn to type as fast as possible with TouchPal.

But recently I "acquired" a very compact, foldout bluetooth keyboard (iGO Ultra-Slim Stowaway... one of our venerable founders had it for sale here on the site). The thing is smaller than a paperback, but folds out to full size.

What a relief to type full speed on the Touch! I can use Alt-Tab to cycle through open apps. Keys will open settings and programs, and other keys can be assigned.

They've been discontinued by iGO, but can still be found out there.

So my vote is: for quick messages and emails, TouchPal, and for serious typing, bluetooth keyboard!
