Android: Swype, one of your favourite Android keyboards has faced heavy competition from rival enhanced keyboards. This week the Swype team announced that the latest version of Swype no longer requires you sign up and register in order to download it. As well, Swype incorporates a new “living language” feature that rolls in crowd-sourced dictionaries, so words like “hashtag” and “Instagram” are already in your dictionary without you having to add them.
Android: Fans of Swype, one of our favourite Android keyboards, have a lot to be happy about today: Nuance has rolled out a major update to the Swype Beta that includes an updated keyboard, real predictive text for those who still tap individual letters, the ability to edit words in Swype’s built-in dictionary and more.
While far from complete, a very early beta of Swype – the finger-swyping standard keyboard alternative popular on Android – is now available for your jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. It only works in some apps and doesn’t work perfectly, but if you’re eager to try it out on your iDevice, here’s how to do it.
