Customer Reviews

Best Yet

This is the best third party keyboard yet. The problems people are complaining about are iOS bugs not keyboard bugs. It happens with all third party keyboards. Swype is the best gesture keyboard I've used yet. It's perfect for one handed typing on my iPhone 6. I use it on my iPad well, but not as exclusively as I do on my phone. Yes, there are bugs (iOS bugs), but it's worth the pain. Hopefully Apple will get this fixed soon. Some apps like Netflix don't even allow third party keyboards at all. Even native iOS apps like this app review don't allow third party keyboards. This can be very frustrating. Still, this is not a Swype issue. Don't downrate the keyboard for something that the developer doesn't have any control over.

Almost a solid replacement

I came from using a windows phone and always preferred the keyboard on those compared to my iPhone. There are just a couple things that get me about this version of the keyboard on the iPhone.

I find myself pressing "b" often after words instead of the space bar, as well as hitting "." instead of space as well, which throws the word correction or suggestions through a loop. If this could be addressed, then it might be a game changer of a keyboard.


This app is mind-numbingly bad. It's a shame, because the input method is so much better than typing, but the algorithm used to match to words is horrendous, pulling obscure proper nouns all the time over common words. You'll find yourself screaming constantly. No dictionary editing capability either, so you're stuck with your type-o FOREVER if you accidentally add it to the dictionary (which is all top easy to do)! If this weren't enough, punctuation handing seems to be programmed by someone who has never written a sentence in any language in their entire life. Double-space after a question mark?. Clearly that means you want to add a period!. Oh, same for an exclamation mark. Idiots!!
