Swype has so far been the undisputed king of swiping keyboards on Android. Even though SwiftKey recently released their version of swiping, dubbed Flow, Swype still has them beat by a little. It’s simply a bit more accurate. So if you’re a dedicated Swype user, there is an update available for the beta keyboard. Here is the full changelog:
Swype Beta v188.8.131.5205
Advanced Language Models added for Hindi and Belgian Dutch
Responsiveness for tap input improved for all languages
Improved overall Smart Editor behavior and implemented some bug fixes
Fixed a Gingerbread crash that occurred when rotating device into landscape mode
Fixed miscellaneous crashes reported by the Beta community
Fixed an issue where default Android voice input (‘mic’/’microphone’) icon displayed instead of Dragon logo
Changed subtype text in notification drawer to be more accurate
Word Choice List behavior improved in Polaris Office
And many more bug fixes and improvements!
