    Pretty cool. I've been using SwiftKey lately and it's ok. But right now trying out Swype and it feels more accurate to me with it predicting better in my case.

    The iOS versions of the keyboards are so inferior to the android versions right now. Once they get all the features I will start using them dedicatedly but until then I'll stay with apples.

    This doesn't seem very practical for tablets huh?

    Well, it makes your keyboard pretty with the earth theme at least. and still fun swyping around on a tablet.

    Gave it a go myself on an iPhone 6+ and personally I don't think its for me. To start with it appears if you want to do swipe typing it has to all be on one hand. Not ideal at all on a 6+. Then if you want to break out into normal touch typing it doesn't seem to be as responsive probably because it's trying to predict those touches as swipes.

    Great it's free though for those that want to try

    Yes, it's designed for doing it all with on hand, just as writing is designed to do with one hand. My 6+ is on backorder, so I can't if it's screen is simply too big for swype or not, yet. But for smaller phones that you can hold in one hand and reach the full keyboard with your thumb, swype is amazing. It takes time to really click with it, but once you do, it's really fast. With one thumb, I can swype the same amount of text almost twice as fast as I can tapping it out with two thumbs.

    Just trying this for a few minutes or even a few days will not really tell you much about it. It's a lot like learning how to write in cursive. Sure, you can learn how to write in cursive in a relatively short period of time, but it takes much longer to get to the point where you can write in cursive faster than you can in print.

    Voice dictation is really improved in iOS 8

    Pretty much 90% of what you speak is transcribed

    This feature is not available on any 3rd party keyboard

    Couple that with little bugs that drove me crazy I decided to give up on Swift Key and Swype (which i paid for when it was released) and stick with the stock keyboard
