Swype ported to Apple iPhone, but you still need to spell correctly
A video made by the iPhone Download Blog shows a beta version of the popular app Swype ported to the Apple iPhone. Unlike the Android version of the app, there is no line that helps you trace your movement from letter to letter. Furthermore, this version of Swype works only on stock iOS apps like email and messages.

The video shows that the software does work on the Apple iPhone keyboard. The one time it failed is a testimonial to the apps ability to make sure that incorrectly spelled words-like, oh, testimonial-do not make it to your screen. Of course, you need a jailbroken iPhone to download this software. You might also notice that the pop-up keyboard would show its face occasionally, but that should go away as the user becomes more used to the Swype technique.

Not really, but one has to ask the question - how long until Apple creates their own version (aka. copy copy) of swype and incorporate it into iOS??

Apples motto back in the day was "Create-Innovate".. Should be changed to "Copy-Dominate"...

Just like other commentors said, this was a download from the android market. If this is copying then Android copied iPhone with bump, cut the rope, field runners, pandora, angry birds, etc. And like other said this is only through jailbreak. Again, annoying Android users...

Uhm, Swype is officially available for more OSes than just Android... Why all the references to Swype as an "Android" App?

Just saw christianqwerty's post, so I am just regurgitating what christianqwerty said...

Swype has already been available for symbian^3 for quite a long time and it works pretty well not like this one.
