Nuance Launches Next Generation Swype
Swype’s New Living, Learning Keyboard Gets Smarter Every Time You Use It
Burlington, Mass. - June 20, 2012 - Nuance Communications Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) today announced the next-generation Swype keyboard, a four-in-one keyboard that is a revolutionary step forward in the way people communicate and input text on their mobile devices. Swype now combines touch and voice input with unique adaptive capabilities to understand users’ preferences over time - becoming smarter and more personalized every time they swype, speak, tap and write.
Staying connected has never been more exciting as Swype provides consumers with more choice in how they input text, and now interprets a user’s personal language style - ultimately providing an amazingly fast, flexible, and accurate experience. New features include:
· Next Word Prediction: Swype’s next word prediction is amazingly intelligent as Nuance has integrated capabilities from its renowned XT9 portfolio. Swype gets smarter based on historical usage, so prediction becomes more accurate with each use.
· Voice-Text Dictionary Syncing: Swype now includes a personal dictionary. Every new word a user enters on the keyboard gets added to their personal dictionary for speech and text, and you can even have Swype learn from emails, texts and posts. These updates are then mapped into Swype’s unified language model, so people can immediately speak or write that same word no matter how unique or specialized.
· Language Downloads: Swypers everywhere can communicate in any language they speak, as Swype now supports the download of over 55 languages right from the device.
· Four-in-One Keyboard: Swype now delivers a four input modalities in one keyboard. People can swype from letter to letter; type rapidly with predictive text input powered by XT9; speak their text naturally through a fully integrated Dragon button; or, simply write letters, words and symbols using their fingertip. Further, users can switch back and forth between modalities on the fly - providing the ultimate in keyboard personalization.
“People use their keyboards every day in every way - so input needs to be fast and simple,” said Michael Thompson, executive vice president and general manager, Nuance Mobile. “The new Swype living, learning keyboard ushers in a new era of input, where the keyboard adapts to the users’ unique way of communicating every time they swype, speak, tap or write.”

"Swype is not available from any online application store,...' I never understood why it isn't in any store even though it's pretty popular.

Because it's more profitable for them to exclusively licence them to OEMs than putting it up on the Play Store.

I think it is the best keyboard. I used it ALL THE TIME on Gingerbread, but when I started using the Galaxy Nexus or HTC One X it was not there and I had to download it... Problem is when I used it on ICS it came out really tiny like a quarter of the size it shb. I posted on their forum only to see many others were doing the same thing... and experiencing the same problems. With the Nuance acquisition I thought this kb sh gotten better and respond to problems quicker AND FOR SURE BE ON play.android.com and NOT be in beta forever... Well I have taken to other imposter kb's and am ok with it even though I know swype when working was better...
Anybody know if they fixed the kb size issue not expanding to normal size on these new BIGGER SCREEN kb's?
hey swype put it on the Market...

In the old swype, you hold the back button and it vibrates removes the entire word so you know when to let go if you're not looking at ur screen.
In the new swype better, holding the back button makes it delete letter for letter, so it's hard to lift your finger off accurately to stop at the word you want to continue from.
I miss that old feature.
