On average, reports say that smartphone owners spend 47% of the time on their device texting, emailing and social networking. That’s a good chunk of your day. What’s the common thread here (aside from the fact that we’re clearly all busy and like being connected, of course)? Oh yeah! Whether you’re texting a friend, emailing a coworker, or tweeting your favorite reality TV star (don’t lie – we’ve all done it), each of these tasks involves inputting text on a keyboard. Lucky for you, we happen to be quite the experts on keyboards. And what’s more, we have some exciting news to share.

Already deployed on over 1 billion devices worldwide, today our Swype keyboard is now also available to iPhone, iPod and iPod touch users running iOS 8 on their devices. That’s right, @BrandonMiniman, the wait is over!

 

First launched in 2009 as the original trace input keyboard, Swype’s continuous touch technology lets users effortlessly glide their finger from one letter to the next – with words and phrases appearing as they go. It’s easy to use, fast, accurate and just plain fun. iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users can look forward embracing a keyboard that learns the words and phrases that you use most often and knows what you’re going to say before you’ve even said it. It’s like having a psychic in your pocket!

It’s like having a psychic in your pocket!

Here are all the details of what you can look forward to:

  • Quick and easy punctuation: Enjoy built-in Swype gestures to easily enter punctuation and symbols for an intuitive and accurate typing experience.
  • Next word prediction: With advanced next word prediction, Swype gives you a natural, proactive text input experience. Swype “Jennifer” and “Anniston” might be the next word suggestion to appear, for example.
  • Adaptive, learning vocabulary: Swype learns the words and phrases that you use the most so that they automatically appear as you input text. So the more it you use it, the smarter Swype gets.
  • Themes: Five newly-designed themes give you the option to personalize your experience and Swype in style. Having a hard time letting go of summer? Then the ‘Sand’ theme is for you. Still obsessing over the movie Gravity (yeah, we are too)? Try our ‘Earth’ theme for a whole new look.
  • Broad language coverage: Swype for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch will include language support for English, French, Italian, German and Spanish – more on the way!

Go ahead, download Swype for only $0.99 today and give it a try. We’re confident that once you use Swype, you’ll never want to use another keyboard again.
