    hm i currently have HTC Wildfire/Buzz phone. swype doesnt support its resolution, so I am using SwiftKey. its not a swipe keyboard but its great at predictions.

    yet to get my NookColor but i am pretty sure I heard that its a lot of work to get swype working on it (if at all, at present). so try swiftkey, or if you like swipe keyboards then maybe slideIT or something

    You can also do a search in the market for keyboard...a ton of options out there.

    Swype and SwiftKey are my two favorites.

    I use SlideIT and love it. The keyboard is larger than others and works like Swype does, except has more options. You can also turn off the swype feature. I use it on my Evo phone as well. Like I said, the size of the SlideIT keyboard is what i love!!

    This image of from their website as it would appear on a phone. It's really a bad representation of what it looks like on the NookColor. It's a great keyboard app, and I've tried most others.

    It installed from the Market just fine. Showed that I had already purchased for my Evo and installed it on NC. Did you go into "settings/language and keyboards" and poke around? I went there and checked-marked "SlideIT" as my keyboard to get it working.

    SwiftKey is my favorite on my Droid X, but I've been unable to get it to work on my NC running 1.0.1. Tried the tweaks suggested at nookdevs.com but nothing works. And I'm guessing the suggestion to go into settings/language and keyboard is applicable only to those running a rom like CM etc. If anyone has gotten SwiftKey running on the rooted 'stock' NC, please share how you've done so. Thanks!

    Add me to the list of users who cannot get slideit to work on my rooted color nook. I have downloaded the file, but cannot get it to install, I cannot see it, it is as if nothing happened, other than the fact that I have paid for it.

    One of my favorite apps in general is Thumb Keyboard.

    I have tried 3-4 different versions of Slide and none was working cause of the resolution that NC has.
    Swype works great.
