No need to find a newbie at QWERTY, I just wanted to see what method you were fastest with. Obviously that's not Fastap. A lot of people seem to think mobile QWERTY is a god send, that it makes things super fast. But I think T9 is actually faster once you learn it (I can touch type with T9 at a pretty good clip). There are less keys and the pattern isn't any more obtuse than QWERTY. But there is a learning curve, which is a tough hurdle for some people to overcome.

Being good at typing on a fullsize QWERTY only helps marginally on a mobile QWERTY. Sure you know where the letters are at, but you only use your thumbs to hit the keys. It's completely different in practice.
