Multi-touch Keyboard for EVO 4G
When we posted our side-by-side comaprison between the HTC EVO 4G and the Motorola Droid X, one of the most notable additions to the Motorola was the unique multi-touch keyboard.

Thanks to this, EVO owners can enjoy the latest in text input technology without having to sacrifice the pleasing aesthetics of the HTC_IME keyboard.
You can download the revised keyboard in the modification thread.
