Not sure what else has changed, but it seems easier to thumb type now...
Now I see it. Touch typing is still faster than the swype. A long hold on each alpha key prints an alternate key and a very long hold brings up a choice of FOUR alternate keys.
Is there a way to see the four alternate keys for each alpha key other than just trial and error?
I found the camera icon on the photo section. However, it's really useless since one, normally, would want to take a photo of something other than oneself. Without a lens facing the other way it has no real use.
