The crowd-pleasing Swype Beta keyboard app has been updated to build 3.26. This is the first update we’ve seen since August and it comes with a bunch of additions including automatic updates. After you’ve advanced to version 3.26, Swype will begin pushing new updates to your device automatically and present you with a notification to install it. That’s right, no more fooling around with that troublesome installer app any more.
Other updates include:
- Improved Language Control gives you access to only the languages you use. From Swype Settings you can select which languages will appear when switching languages directly from Swype. Never cycle through a language you don’t use again.
- The Refined Key Layout brings a better overall user experience, more in line with what users expect. Numbers are now across the top row, and the symbols layer contains several new characters, and a button to switch between 2 pages of symbols.
- Redesigned Settings & Help makes it easier than ever to control how Swype behaves, and learn how to become an advanced Swype user. Just long-press the (Swype icon) to go straight to the Swype Settings window!
