Melissa Thompson, a 27 year old British woman, managed to type out “The razor-toothed piranhas of the genera Serrasalmus and Pygocentrus are the most ferocious freshwater fish in the world. In reality they seldom attack a human” in just 25.94 seconds! The previous record was 35.54 seconds, set by 24 year old Franklin Page in March.
This is what Ms. Thompson had to say about Swype: “It’s a real shock to find out that I’m the fastest texter in the world. But using SWYPE helped. Everyone should give it a go and see how easy it is.”
In case you didn’t know, Swype is currently in closed beta, but is preinstalled in a few Samsung & Motorola phones. It might be open again sometime soon (hopefully), so head over to beta.swype.com and see if it’s open yet. We’ll try and keep you updated as to when the next beta will be open.
