Thread: Swype is Apple's App of the Week This Week

  1. #1
    Default Swype is Apple's App of the Week This Week

    On Thursday, for the first time in Apple's App Store history, the Cupertino-based company has chosen a popular third-party keyboard to be the App of the Week in the App Store. Swype, the highly popular gesture-based keyboard for iOS 8, has been dubbed the App of the Week; a major change from Apple's App of the Week last week, which was a game called PAC-MAN Friends.

    Swype went free in the App Store this morning, but there was no word on why. The revealing that it's Apple's App of the Week this week explains exactly why the keyboard went free in the App Store, and also tells us how long it'll be free for until next Thursday when a new App of the Week is chosen.

    Swype is a keyboard that lets you swipe from letter to letter to complete words, rather than having to type words out the old-fashioned way on a tap-to-type keyboard. It's arguably a better solution to typing, but many will also argue that it can take a lot of getting used to and may not exactly be as fast as some people say it is.

    Swype is normally a 99 download in the App Store, so if you're interested in grabbing it while it's free, it's available at this App Store link. Please note that you need to be on iOS 8 to install third-party keyboards like Swype. You can also follow this guide on how to install and activate third-party keyboards.

    If it makes you feel better, you had it before I did.

    I find this keyboard to be quite annoying. I'm sure it's because I'm not used to it but still drives me nuts....deleted

    I'm on the 6+...finding that at certain times the keyboard simply doesn't appear. Guessing this is a known bug? Otherwise seems very cool. I uninstalled for now because of the inconsistency.
