Swype is a virtual keyboard for touchscreen smartphones and tablets originally developed by Swype Inc. where the user enters words by sliding a finger or stylus from the first letter of a word to its last letter, lifting only between words. It uses error-correction algorithms and a language model to guess the intended word. It also includes a predictive text system, handwriting and speech recognition support.
Until a few months ago, Swype Keyboard was in its beta stages and it was available for the users from their website and not on the Google Play Store. But now, it is out of the beta stages and it has been on the Google Play Store for quite sometime. However the disappointing thing was it is available for trial for only a limited time and after that the user will have to pay for it. However using the following patch, the user can install it without having to pay for it.
