Swype and Ice Cream Sandwich don’t mix… for now
With the Samsung Galaxy Nexus finally hitting the U.S., some users have noticed that the Swype keyboard is not present on the first official Ice Cream Sandwich device. Swype has taken to its Twitter account to inform users that the way Android reports screen resolution in Ice Cream Sandwich effects Swype’s ability to work properly. While it is a no go for right now, Swype says it is actively working on an Ice Cream Sandwich friendly version of its keyboard.

It's quiet in here. Oh I forgot, this is not Apple excluding a feature, it's android. And it's totally acceptable :)

Do you read articles before you post nonsense or is it just a knee-jerk reaction that you see an article about Android and spew bulls**t? Nobody is excluding anything, the company that makes Swype hasn't configured it to work with ICS yet... God... you guys are really getting pathetic. Jealous much?

You are on the wrong article. We are on the one saying that Verizon is having to shift stock to meet demand.

Not to mention that Swype is a 3rd party app, not a part of stock Android, and it's preloaded by Samsung and Motorola for our convenience.

This is why I'm in no rush to be on Ice Cream Sandwich. App compatibility. What other apps that I use won't work or work correctly? I personally have not a single issue at all with Gingerbread. Does everything I need. I'm sure I'll eventually be using ICS but in NO rush at all. Just me though posting my opinion on a blog.

I like it when i'm walking my dog because it's easier for me to type with one hand... and since you can just long press the on screen text entry and pick input method it's pretty easy to switch back and forth.
