"Typing times are over"

Reviewed by / Aug 21, 2014

An innovative keyboard with a disrupting text input system

Swype was probably the first keyboard replacement that challenged the traditional typing (tapping) text input system on mobile devices. Afterwards, some copied that new system based on drawing path from one letter to the next.

You can now enjoy at a cost this excellent keyboard that enables users to choose among 4 different text input systems: Swype, speak, write and tap. Of course, swiping is the basis. Use your fingertips to draw a path from letter to letter until you've formed the word. This system is, obviously, backed by a powerful and accurate prediction engine that helps the user get the right word faster (it even learns from your swiping style). It requires some time to get used to it, however, once the user advances through the learning curve, it becomes one of the fastest text input systems

Besides swiping, users can also input text with their voice thanks to its accurate speech-to-text technology. Write is another input system that Swype keyboards come with: use your finger to draw letters and words (gestures) and Swype will turn them into text. Finally, like other keyboard replacements (and the built-in Android keyboard), you can text by tapping letters, the classic way but, making the most of Swype's prediction engine.

    I type bilingual, so I really like that in both English and Hungarian even the longer and infrequently used words come up flawlessly.

    If you read the tutorials on how to use this keyboard, it'll save you so much time. While my friends are poking out a line I have a paragraph swiped out. The auto and manual capitalization shortcuts, quick copy/cut/paste and a myriad other shortcuts mashes this keyboard the best in my opinion. The only thing I would add is emoji support and being allowed to shorten long press sorted than 250ms.

    I have used this app before as a trail and I just loved it so finally I decided to buy it. Compared to other keyboard apps out there with voice recognition installed on it. This one has exceeded all the other's I have used and have exceeded my expectations‚ therefore being worth my money :)

    This was the standard keyboard I loved, so I bought it to show my appreciation. On my note 4, however, key stroke lines are slow and choppy, and it skips words completely some times. Word prediction or corrections is way worse than the factory installed Swype too. Uninstalled.

    Chinese can not write with handwriting while using strokes, this is what I used to do with this keyboard. And maybe the developers can add emoji to the keyboard

    I bought this app, but for some reason it is saying that it is not licensed??? Edit: I had to enter an activation code. After I entered the code, it worked flawlessly. Thanks guys. I thought I wasted money

    Best word prediction of any keyboard I've tried(I've tried a lot). I don't use the Swype feature, just regular typing. Well worth the .99 cents.
