Results: Tap vs Swipe vs Voice: How do you type?
Last week, we asked you what input method do you use for your typing needs – tapping, swiping, voice or a combination of the above. And the results are now in.

It appears that the majority of you prefer the classic Tap method, since it racked in 43.46% of your votes. Combined Tap + Swipe followed in a close second with 33.13%. The top three is completed by the Swipe option, which was voted for by 20.04% of you.

Unsurprisingly, Voice and Others have only managed to get 1.84% and 1.53% respectively. This only makes sense, considering the speech recognition is often slightly inaccurate, and a lot of people would rather silently type, than say their private messages out loud for the random bystanders to hear.
