What is Swype Texting?

A user no longer has to press or tap the letter on the keyboard to enter a text in the text-box, but all one has to do is, in one continuous motion slide the finger over the letters on the keyboard and the input of the words fall out instantly. In short, it’s the technology of dragging your finger from letter to letter on the keyboard to create words.

Swype Texting

The technology of Swype has been invented for about 7-8 years now, but has been implemented recently in hand-held cell phone devices and similar applications. Swype is a brand new technology introduced by Swype Inc., that runs on the idea of swiping characters (text) on the keyboard instead of specifically pressing individual letters on the keyboard. You can refer Swype to the technology of predictive texting in your cell phones, which catches the word pre-hand before you finish typing the entire word. Likewise, the key advantage of using Swype is, it expends an error-correcting algorithm plus an enhanced language model in order to predict the user’s intended word. In this case, a user has to be absolutely random and rapid while tracing a path on the keyboard and within a fraction of a second the text entry would be done! Swype is designed to give a data input of 50 word per minute (wpm), with such an easy technology, this method so far happens to be the fastest way of enabling the user to enter the text in his/her application device. These days this technology is preloaded on many cell phones like Droid XiPhoneiPadHTC and so on. It is also comfortably compatible with devices like tablets, cell phones, kiosks, game consoles, virtual screens and televisions and perhaps much much more.

So by any chance if your application device is a touchscreen having a traditional QWERTY keyboard in it, operating the technology of Swype in one continuous motion across the touchscreen will definitely be an exciting experience. Let’s take an example and see how this system functions.

Tracing a Path with Swype

Now all you have to do is slide your finger from letter ‘Q’, then lift your finger for a slightest gap to reach the letters ‘U’ and ‘I’, then again smoothly lift your finger to reach the bottom line to reach the letter ‘C’ and continuing in the same manner reach the letter ‘K’ to complete the word QUICK. The best part about tracing the path on the keyboard is a user doesn’t need to be accurate or precise while typing.
