One of the best third-party keyboards, Swype Keyboard, for Android devices has come to its end. The company behind the app, Nuance Communications Inc. has confirmed that the Swype is no longer under development.
Swype keyboard is Google Play Store’s best keyboard for swipe typing and voice dictation. But all good things must come to an end.
Swype Keyboard was launched by the same company behind the ‘Dragon’ natural speaking software back in 2013 and is easily available in Play Store.
A Reddit user has recently emailed the developers to report a bug, but received the following response:
“Nuance will no longer be updating the Swype+Dragon keyboard for Android. We’re sorry to leave the direct-to-consumer keyboard business, but this change is necessary to allow us to concentrate on developing our AI solutions for sale directly to businesses.
We hope you enjoyed using Swype, we sure enjoyed working with the Swype community.”
Swype Keyboard is available on Play Store in the trail and paid version. The trial version is for 30 days and has 87,920 votes. Out of the total, 55,650 votes have 5-star ratings. The paid version of the app has 78,321 votes with 43,354 5-star ratings, which is very good.
