Swype Keyboard is what started the whole swipe input movement on smartphones, but compared to other options like Swiftkey or Google’s own keyboard, it’s never been updated that frequently. That is until now. The new update brings a slew of new features to Swype v3.0.1:

  • Emoji predictions based on your text content
  • Number Row option
  • Hide Secondaries option
  • Text Engine Improvements
  • Handwriting Improvements
  • Chinese Handwriting Multiple Character Recognition
  • Languages and Keyboards:
    • Uyghur keyboard
    • Kashmiri Devanagari predictive language database
    • Russian KDB for Russian and Kirghyz languages
    • Improvements to Thai, Lao, Khmer
Unlike other swipe keyboards, Swype is 99 cents for the full version, but if you’re curious, you can get the trial version for free.

Though I’m not sure how useful the emoji predictions are, but for me the number row is indispensable. That’s one thing I love about my Samsung keyboard and one of those things that you don’t realize you need until you have it.
