Nuance’s Swype keyboard for iOS is currently a free download in the App Store. Regularly $0.99, it was discounted this evening to free. We suspect it may be Apple’s Free App of the Week, set to be announced tomorrow afternoon.
iOS 8 introduced support for third party keyboards and in our hands-on comparison of SwiftKey vs Fleksy vs Swype, we found the latter to be the most accurate and our favourite.
Swype was recently updated to add support for 16 new languages (bringing the total to 21 languages), an improved iPad layout, customizable keyboard layouts (QWERTY, QWERTZ, AZERTY), intelligent emoji support for 6 languages and a new auto-space option.
If you’ve been holding out for Swype to go free, now’s your chance. Time to share this with the gang.
