Swype, for those who aren t familiar, is not your standard issue keyboard. While you retain the ability to type normally, the USP of Swype is the ability to swipe from one to character to another to type out a word. While many are adept at this, still, however, it can take some time getting used to. The latest version on the Play Store introduces new features like Smart Touch that adjusts to each user s personal input patterns, Smart Reselect and adds 13 new keyboard themes.
To download Swype on your Android devices, head over to the Play Store.
