Swype is a new, faster and easier way for text entry on your smartphone. With Swype, you can type at a rate of 50 words per minute with one single continuous finger motion without having to lift the finger from your screen. Folks over at XDA have extracted the Swype keyboard which is installed by default on Samsung Omnia II on Verizon. You can now use it with any Windows Mobile based WVGA device, including the HTC HD2.
Folks over at XDA-Developers have managed to hack the popular HTC Sense interface, which ships with HTC HD2, to make it compatible to run in landscape mode. One complain that you would have often heard from users running HTC Sense on Windows phones is the lack of support in landscape mode. With this hack, you can now run the popular interface in landscape mode. Its not perfect yet, and has some alignment issues, but it is still very much usable. One can expect more improvements in future releases.
