A few suggestions for a GREAT app
I love Swype. After an update, it temporarily wouldn't work on Safari. It worked for everything else, but not Safari.
So I tried a few other keyboards that have word-drawing capabilities. SwiftKey ticked me off. TouchPal and Google's Gboard were pretty good, but they each had their problems. TouchPal has quick number input and awesome themes, but whenever I typed the word "a," it didn't recognize it as a word and put all three words (the a and the words surrounding it) together. It's really picky about where the cursor is, too.
Gboard has cool features in regards with using Google within an app, but I don't realistically need or want that. It also capitalizes everything if I move the cursor, and it didn't have quick number input.
But Swype is great. It has multiple rows of auto correct and, as I just learned, a form of quick number input by holding the top row keys. Autocorrect works better and the system works more intuitively for what you're (or at least I'm) actually typing.
What I hope for is to have the upside down question marks and exclamation points as quick inputs by holding down the regular punctuation marks on the main keyboard screen. It takes too long to get to those characters, considering other foreign language characters are easily accessible by pressing and hiding a button.
Please, Swype, add the upside down characters.
Bug still not fixed
As I'm Swyping this message, all I can think of is wow. How is it possible to be so close to being a great keyboard and yet this company still can't get rid of an obvious bug. And guess what, this update made the bug worse and more obvious which makes me wonder if anyone at this company tests their own app at all. Anytime I Swype a word and then touch the ?123 key to add punctuation there's a good chance the word that I had just Swyped will change for no reason (all autocorrect features have been turned off, the only setting I have on is auto-space). This bug is more obvious now than it ever was before and this new update took about a year to get here. Fix this obvious bug and as long as this new update is as good as the last you'll deserve a 5 star review. For the meantime I'm looking for another keyboard. If this bug happens to be from iOS let me know.
Good but disappointing
Word prediction is not as good as the native keyboard or even the closest competitor Swiftkey. It especially has a hard time with single letter words. I spend a lot of time correcting, much more compared to Swiftkey. It does not like the word "to" but instead prefers to put in "top." It likes to add extra punctuation when trying to use 2 spaces between sentences. The number pad that can be turned on only stays visible for 1 number then reverts to the qwerty keyboard. Keyboard fails to load in messaging app (and others) frequently requiring the all to but completely shut down or discarded for it to work again. It would also be great if Apple would allow the dictatIon icon to show up on these 3rd party keyboards. Update 11/30 does not download so the app is completely function less.
