A simple keyboard that provides vector prediction by swiping over letters using a dictionary of 45000 words.

This version adds additional functionality to the free version including smart candidate ordering based on previous usage, quick alphanumeric keyboard for password entry, single letter tap word predictions (like other predictive keyboards), the ability to change how keys 'a' and 'i' function, current word commit, and the ability to change numerous preferences.


To spell out words swipe over the keyboard. Single letters may be added by tapping them. A double tap changes the case of the single letter (except in the case of 'a' and 'I' where a double tap removes the auto-generated space). Words may be cycled through capitalisation by using the double-ended arrow key (left side of keyboard).

Words and letters that are entered are initially underlined until committed. Underlined entries can be deleted with a single press of the delete key. Committing occurs when a new word is swiped out or the "commit" (c/i) key is pressed.

Double-tapping the c/i key brings up the keyboard preferences.

Pressing the 'password' (p) key displays a numeric row on the alpha keyboard and turns off vector input. The double-ended arrow functions as a shift-case key. This is to allow data entry without predictive or vector behaviour, such as when entering passwords.

Only the alpha keyboard has vector capability (for obvious reasons). The numeric/symbol and special-symbol keyboards are provided for convenience.

    I'm using this instead of the more popular "Swype" because it's smaller, lighter and faster. The paid version adds useful features and is well worth the small price.
