I was shown that with the messaging app (texting), I can drag my finger along the letters so it writes! How do I do that? I've been looking at my phone forever & I really wanna know.


You would need to use an app like SwiftKey Keyboard or SlideIt.

Edit #1: Take a look @Izzy's comment. It is also possible.

    It could also be that the Swipe keyboard comes pre-installed, and simply needs to be enabled in Settings->Language & Input-> Keyboards & Input Methods. – Izzy Mar 17 '13 at 0:46

There are more keyboards able to do this.

Swype comes preinstalled on Samsung smartphones, but can also be installed from Google Play.

You could also try SwiftKey Flow or Keymonk.
