  • Abandoned app riddled with bugs.

    By glenh2oman
    The developers clearly don't care about keeping Swype functional. You can't type inside fillable boxes on web pages (like the YouTube search bar or address form). Sometimes the keyboard locks up. More often it doesn't show up at all. After all the headaches I switched to SwiftKey. Stay away from Swype!
  • Much better on Android.

    By Parker In China
    I've had Swype since the very beginning. Years ago on Android it was better than today's iPhone version. On upright 7+, there's plenty of room for the Carriage Return... But it's not here... Sometimes the keyboard UI freezes up. There's Chinese language on Android, but none on iPhone. Google's version is only slightly worse, but that's free. Step it up Swype.
  • Use SwiftKey instead

    By Tony Uncet
    Nuance took this great piece of software and ruined it. Download SwiftKey instead which has a much better typing keyboard. I think the devs for this app are gone. I wish they would just release the code to the world so people could develope this keyboard as open source.
  • Swype is a must!

    By JimY46
    Best and most useful app I have on my iPhone and my iPad. I can text at least 3 times faster using Swype on both the iPhone and the iPad. In fact I can type with Swype faster and more accurately than I could type on my desk top computer using a regular keyboard. Those that are giving it a low rating haven't practiced using it. There is a learning curve for it, but it is amazing once mastered. Five stars for sure. 👍👍
  • Not bad. Love Swype. Needs improve.

    By Vraniol
    Using Swype more than 4 years. And 3mo with IPhone (Plus). Still needs to improve. Freezes sometimes. No microphone button/icon, very inconvenient. My Words in library disappears a lot. Emoji not here. But it's 4 stars anyway!!! But i can't leave without swyping. Guy, read reviews and improve.
  • Very glitchy!!

    By Scootn5
    The app started out just fine but within 2 months it started to pop up with no keys. Now there is either a regular lag or nothing at all.
  • Please fix bugs and dumb word substitutions

    By Muusic
    I have to agree with many of the reviewers that this app is extremely frustrating. How about some common sense? Is "Ann" more common than "an"? I could go on and on with weird weird it picks over the most common words. You know that the correct weird was an option because it shows up on the list above the keyboard, yet it'll pick the most bizarre choices. And why can't we turn autocorrect off? It's set to off but it keeps changing words. If I have to type an acronym, it'll keep changing it over and over if I don't save the word. Get a clue - if I retyped the same letters after you change it, that's what I'm really trying to type. I find this code to be astonishingly stupid. And now it keeps freezing, which makes it almost unusable because I'm not going to keep rebooting my phone so I can type.
  • Have to spend too much time fixing words

    By Unusualaesthetic
    I like Swype in many ways, I loved being able to type so fast with my android, and I'm glad this app exists. I've been using it for a year now, and it is mostly good. However, I am finding myself lately typing a regular word (spelled correctly and a common usage word) and having it change immediately to something completely different! And there are a lot of gibberish words that pop up or even REPLACE a normal word that I'm typing. Then I spend too much time going back to correct a word, then having it change on me AGAIN. When I'm having to go back and fix words so often ("if" often changes to "of" after I've typed "if" correctly), it kind of voids the point of using this keyboard for speed.
  • If there was just ONE more feature

    By JTMalik
    I love this app and it saves me a lot of time but if only there was an option where you could turn off auto capitalization?
  • Speaking a different language

    By barbarellaqotg
    I love this app, it used to work like a charm, but all of a sudden it has started returning a bunch of wrong words. What's up? Did you tweak the backend or something? And if so, can you put it back the way it was? To show you what I mean, here's what I just wrote above, without me fixing all the bizarre typos Swype inserted: I love this app, ity used to with lithe a charm, but ask if a sudden it had deserted resetting a bunch of wrong words. What'd up? Fig you tweak the bankers or anything? And if so, cash too pushy it back the way it was?
