Swype Beta Receives Update, Tell Me Again Why It Isn’t In Google Play Yet?

We’ve been following development of the third party keyboard, Swype for quite some time. In fact, it’s been years. While we still await publishing to Google Play, they continue to push updates to the keyboard and this newest version has a few features that we thought were share worthy.

Firstly, there is now the addition of “trending words.” For example, PSY’s Gangnam Style has become a cultural phenomenon, so the word “Gangnam” shall now be recognized and added for easy entry. Gee, awesome. Secondly, and more importantly, tablet users can now switch between a plain layout keyboard and a split keyboard for the wider displays. That way, swiping with your fingers over greater distance is now uber easy.

Grab the newest version here.
