WP7 Sliding Keyboard v1.7 – Coming Soon (Update: v1.8 submitted & previewed!)

I am sure many of you might have heard of Swype – Text input for screens. Since Microsoft does not let developers tinker with it’s keyboard API – Swype is not available ( not yet ) for Windows Phone. However we stumbled upon this video by Youtube user ‘hermitd31′ who showcases the WP7 Sliding Keyboard.

The app has been made possible due to the team at Invoke IT. The app goes a bit further by offering Bing search, text messaging and email options. However the video you see is the update for Sliding Keyboard. The app has been submitted for testing and will be available in the Marketplace soon.
