Playing with the phone

Thursday, June 11th, 2009

Takes some time getting used to a on screen keyboard. At least the predictive input and correction is almost perfect, the only problem I have with it is that Swedish input won’t correct words unless you actually input the umlauts at the right position. Overall an extremly pleasant experience.

And yes, this post only serves as a typing exercise and test of the postbot application.

Epic fail on my HTC Magic (Android)

Thursday, June 11th, 2009

Oh the pain, after a day of moderate use and some installation of third party software from the market, this message appeared each time I tried to use the on screen keyboard.

The application Touch Input (process has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again

Gah, again and again and again. Restarted, again, uninstalled the latest installed applications, again. Recalibrated, restarted. Same message, I was almost down to the same set of applications that the phone came with until I found Settings > Applications > Manage applications > Touch Input > Clear data. That resolved the issue for me. Totally pointless blog post, but since I only managed to find one forum post with the same error, I thought it might be of some use to someone running into the same problem I did.
