N8: Swype, notifications, widgets, and more
Thanks to Chanse’s feedback I posted on how to make your N8 keyboard experience better and I admit I have been pretty happy with that setup. However, I love using Swype on my Android devices and was pleased to see it coming to the Nokia N8. You can actually now go and download the beta of Swype for yourself. Search the Ovi Store with a C7 as your device. I posted the video below of Swype in use on my N8.
As discussed before, Swype cannot work in portrait because Nokia has some kind of limitation is place and Swype won’t work until Nokia provides an update. That said, it is still quite good in landscape orientation.
I also posted the video below to show some of the widgets I like and a couple other tricks I use on my own Nokia N8.
