About Swype

Swype is an alternative keyboard for smartphones or tablets, which makes it possible to enter texts very quickly and easily.

With Swype you can now write even faster. With the help of this special keyboard, you no longer have to type each letter individually, but you can simply wipe over the individual letters. The app automatically recognizes the word you want to write, even if your swipe gestures were not clear or precise. You also have the possibility to add words to your personal dictionary and to use the built-in voice input of the app to turn a spoken text into written words in seconds.

Swype - Functions:

With the help of this wiping system, you can enter words as well as symbols or punctuation marks extremely quickly and easily.
  • Becomes increasingly intelligent: The app is constantly learning so that you can improve the keyboard and the word recognition with each use. For example, the app analyzes your enters and tries to predict precisely which words you want to enter next.
  • Practical voice input: Swype has a very handy voice input feature that allows you to dictate texts. For this you simply have to speak your text and the app transforms your spoken text into a written text then. In addition, the app automatically detects when your voice input is over and stops the recording by itself.
