SwiftKey flow brings Swype-like keyboard coming to Android
SwiftKey is showing off the newest features in its popular Android keyboard and it’s all about a Swype-like gliding, or trace input. This new addition will arrive in SwiftKey 4, and it works in a straightforward way. Straightforward at least for those who have seen or used Swype on their phone - you simply move your finger across the letter pausing for a short while on the one you would have otherwise pressed.

Thus, without lifting your finger off the keyboard your kind of draw the word, and the smart correction and word recognition dictionary kicks off to help shape it on the screen.

This is not new technology, but SwiftKey is stressing the improved prediction engine arriving in the latest version of the keyboard.

Check out a video demonstration of the features below.

I'll stick with my Swype, which I downloaded to my Galaxy S3 from their website. Predicts the same way out better. Couldn't live without it!

I hate any type of system that tries to predict what I want to type. It just doesn't work with proper nouns or acronyms. Many proper nouns and acronyms are ones that I don't use very often at all like once in a blue moon.

Prediction engine of Adaptxt is best than any other keyboard. It is one of the best keyboard I have come across so far. People must try. Its a free app !
