Swype, the sliding Android keyboard which is currently on Beta has added Ice Cream Sandwich compability to its features. Swype allows Android users to slide their fingers across the keyboard and predict words instead of typing them one by one. Swype was acquired by Nuance and now has Dragon Dictation for Speech to Text ability.
Being on a Beta stage, Swype isn’t available at the Android Market and you have to register for Swype Beta to use the App. You’ll get an Swype installer sent to your mail which you will have to run to download the latest Swype Beta onto your Android device. Then you’ll have to configure your Android to use Swype as a default keyboard for default input method in Settings.
Swype beta offers following features:
- 40+ words per minute on touchscreen devices
- Patented Swype input algorithm with predictive tap support
- Standard QWERTY layout plus edit and numeric layers
- Swype Gestures for quick access to common actions
- Personal dictionary
- Extensive language support
- Available on many operating systems
- Integrated with 3rd party voice and handwriting solutions
