After many years and countless betas, Swype is officially official and now live in the Play Store. In case you’re not familiar— Swype is a keyboard alternative for Android devices that gives users the option to enter words onto a device’s screen either by the standard method of typing, talking or well… swyping letters to make words on the screen. The release of Swype also comes jam-packed with features such as Living Language which updates your phone’s dictionary with the latest words that all the young kids use, Next Word Prediction which helps to complete your sentences and lots of keyboard themes to choose from. Oh and you tablet users out there don’t fret— the makers of Swype included 3 different tablet modes to choose from which helps to make life just a little easier for you— especially if you’re on a behemoth of a tablet.
As part of the app’s official release, Nuance Communications is offering the app in the Play Store for a mere 99 cents— but for a limited time only. So those of you Froyo+ smartphone and tablet users who have been itching to try a sweet keyboard alternative have no excuse not to try it out today.
