Install Swype Keyboard on iPhone and iPad [How-To]
Swype is a faster and easier input method for touchscreens devices because it has built-in intelligence that does not require users to hit each letter accurately.It was deployed on 26 million Andriod phones in 50+ countries last year.
With one continuous finger or stylus motion across the screen keyboard, the patented technology enables users to input words faster and easier than other data input methods—at over 40 words per minute. The application is designed to work across a variety of devices such as phones, tablets, game consoles, kiosks, televisions, virtual screens and more.
In layman terms, Swype enables its users to enter words by sliding a stylus or finger from letter to letter, lifiting only between words. It will automatically insert the intended word with error-correcting algorithms.
