Android 4.2 Keyboard with Gesture Typing Leaked
The imminent release of Android 4.2 is exciting news. We’ve brought you an outline of the features coming with Android 4.2, one of which is gesture typing. Much like the popular Swype keyboard, you can swipe letters to write works. Unlike Swype, the gesture is analyzed in real time. In other words, you can see what the keyboard is predicting as you swipe. The keyboard has been leaked for people to try.
XDA Recognized Contributor mrmako777 has posted a thread with the download link and instructions for installation. Users will need to be running ICS or higher in order to install it.
For AOSP ROMs, you must download the zip and flash it in custom recovery. For skinned ROMs that don’t include the AOSP keyboard, such as TouchWiz and HTC Sense, you just download the zip, extract the APK, and install the APK like normal. Once done, you’ll be able to use the newest keyboard and it’s cool gesture typing features.
The keyboard has also been making it’s way around the forums. If you have a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 or a Motorola Atrix 2, you can find more specific instructions in the Galaxy Note 2 thread or the Atrix 2 thread. For everyone else, check out the general thread.

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market. One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
