Customer Reviews

Infuriating auto correct functionality and super glitchy (1 star)
I use a Samsung phone often and so fell in love with swiping text. Apple doesn't have it built in so I bought this.

First it's got a lot of usability glitches. It autocorrects like a virus. It will change words that are spelled correctly to completely different words. Hot goes to got. It's like if you ever mistype a word that is spelled correctly and then choose one of the three alternates, good luck ever typing that word aga

Stop the autocorrect madness!! (3 stars)
Update: I'll give it an extra star because you're trying, but most of what I've said below still holds true. The autocorrect is overpowering its efficiency. And I don't understand what the "living language" is, it doesn't seem any different.


First of all I can't write this review with swype because it doesn't let me scroll up to see what I'm typing. Next, the autocorrect is off its rocker. Like seriously it

Glitchy, but useful nonetheless (2 stars)
With first impressions, Swype is fantastic. It gets about 98% of my swipes correct and it legitimately is a faster method of typing out replies versus trapping the screen.

HOWEVER… The keyboard is VERY glitchy. It shows up (and works) about 60% of the time. Failures occur when switching apps, say from mail to messages. The keyboard doesn't show. The other time that gets frequent failure is when launching spotlight. Sweeping down
