Swype is an innovative keyboard replacement featuring a new 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 between letters and some kept innovating and introducing new systems.

However, Swype wasn't available to download from Google Play, until now. From now on you can enjoy this excellent keyboard that enables users to choose among 4 different text input systems: Swype, speak, write and tap. Obviously, Swype is the keystone. Use your fingertips to draw a path from letter to letter until making the word up. This system is, obviously, backed by a powerful and accurate prediction engine that helps the user getting the right word faster (it even learns from your swyping style). It requires some time to get used to it, however, once the user advances through the learning curve, it becomes one of the best text input systems.

Besides swyping, users can also input text by speaking thanks to its quite 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 into text. Finally, like other keyboard replacement (and the built-in Android keyboard), you can text by tapping letters, the classic way but, making the most of Swype's prediction engine.

If you aren't sure about if Swype is for you, there's a 30 days trial to test it out. You can upgrade whenever to this version, which is extremely affordable for such a high-end keyboard replacement. Highly recommended.

    I LOVE THIS APP, but had to uninstall it because it slowed my Droid RAZR M down, even when not running. Now I'm reinstalling it because I miss it!

    It has not been stated yet, but once you upgrade to the S5, the lag is gone. I used to have an S3 and suffered w/ the same unusable app that everyone with an S3 is going through right now. But now I have an S5 and Swype works great. Still deserves one star for the company being so deceptive about this. I'm using SwiftKey Flow to write this and it's working just fine, as much as I once loved Swype.
