Autocorrect bug!!!


Could you please fix the bug where your words get autocorrected when you press the "punctuation" key. Even with the autocorrect feature turned off, it still decides to switch what your typed to some random word that may begin with the first letter if your word. This has started to get very annoying because of this and the very long time it's been since this problem started or addressed. People have been complaining about this problem for years! I'm having to give just 1 star.

THIS AUTOCORRECT error, after attempting to talk to the company, they have passed the buck and blamed everyone else about the problem. At first was told that the error would be fixed, but street a couple weeks i wad told that the error was not their fault and that there was no problem in their end. After run around was launched atc at told good luck trying to get it fixed and all correspondence was cut off. Great compliant, look somewhere else!!!

Once Monster, on iOS 10 & 11 experiencing issues

My original review 1-2 yrs old raved abt how good Swype
was & worth the modest price. I still like it, wish to continue to use it, but must make exception & downgrade the experience.

The emoji prediction sometimes gets in the way.

I am now experiencing sporadic keyboard lock-ups using an iPad Pro. Resolution usually required a hard reboot. Not a problem if you can remember what you meant to say after a 2 minute interruption.

The lock-ups occur almost exclusively with 2 apps: Twitter & Purple Platform and were there under iOS 10 & now iOS 11. I've been blaming those apps, but it is undetermined the precise origin mix. I KNOW they are worse while using Swype. If I kill Swype, they are nearly eliminated.

If PP is running in the background, the freeze can happen during another active app, albeit rarely. (CAVEAT: I am running an older version of PP at present). I am tying it to a conflict with the keyboard b/c (a few times it has been less than complete freeze): changing to another keyboard returns control. Often though, the lockup prevents changing keyboards.

I see other people are experiencing problems too. I used to be able to run Swype & Swiftkey simultaneously.

Please fix this once & for all, so I can use it once again.

So many bugs


I really love using Swype to text but the number of bugs with this keyboard keep piling up, without ever getting fixed. There's the bug with autocorrect, the bug where the WHOLE keyboard will just freeze and stop responding (forcing you to stop in the middle of texting to turn the keyboard off & on from settings, since you can't just switch keyboards!), and now with the latest Apple update to 11.2, there's this annoying shift in the keyboard image, with the top part of the keyboard cut off and blank space on the bottom of the keyboard. I expect this to be fixed sometime never... some of these bugs have been present since I first got this app several YEARS ago. Do yourself a favor, save your hard earned $ for an app developer that will actually put in the effort to regularly support and fix their app, instead of just grab and run.
