Android: Swype, one of your favorite Android keyboards (and one of ours too), just rolled out an update for beta users packed with useful features, like the ability to sync your dictionary across Android devices, tablet-friendly layouts, and more.
Swype users who have been waiting for a tablet-friendly layout for the app have several to choose from. The new “hotwords” feature solves the problem of typing words that are trending in common language and social media that may not be in a dictionary yet. The feature is opt-in, and if you do participate, your dictionary will periodically get updates with new words based on what people are discussing online, from “gangnam style” to “stratos.”
The latest version of the Swype Beta is still free, and available at the link below.
