5 iOS 8 Keyboards That Are Better Than What Apple Gives You

With the arrival of iOS 8, the iPhone finally — finally! — gets access to custom keyboards, liberating your thumbs from the tyranny of Apple’s tepid offering. Here’s a guide to some of the best keyboards coming your way today or in the near future.


Dryft Could Be The Best Thing To Happen To Tablet Keyboards

Not too long ago, Swype‘s one-finger swiping totally changed phone typing (on Android at least). We don’t all swipe all the time, but that functionality is built right in to the default Android keyboard. Now, the same minds behind Sywpe are trying to change tablet typing with Dryft, a virtual keyboard for touch typists.


Swype's Keyboard Is Now Out Of Beta And In The Play Store

Swype has finally dropped its Beta tag and gone official — which means it’s now in the Play store, easy to install and no longer free. Developers at Nuance — the company which purchased Swype in 2011 — clearly deem the latest version of the Android Keyboard, 1.5, finished and ready for full public consumption.


Swype Now Crowdsources Autocorrections

Swype, the sliding keyboard that dramatically speeds up typing on Android, just got a little more clever. As well as offering a more fluid typing experience, it now crowd-sources your autocorrections — which should (hopefully) make for fewer embarrassing mistakes.


Swype Gets A Little Better

Swype was really the first replacement keyboard for Android that Droid owners could show off to their snarky, iPhone-wielding pals to make them a just a little jealous. Today it’s getting better.


Swype V3 Has Honeycomb Friendliness In Mind

The original Samsung Galaxy Tab had Swype, and it was a nightmare to use. Swype obviously understood that, and have introduced a heap of tablet-friendly updates for version 3.0, including predictive tapping, adjustable keyboard sizes and adjustable keyboard positions. Hopefully it will make typing on Android tablets a much more enjoyable experience…


The World's Fasted Hands Free Typer Is A Quadriplegic

This is so cool. Hank Torres is paralysed from the shoulder down but with the use of Swype and a head tracking device he was able to set the Guinness World Record for fastest hands free typing.


Get The Swype Keyboard For Your Android Phone Now

Swype has been my favourite way to type on an Android phone, but it’s been kinda limited in what phones can run the keyboard software. Until now! All you have to do is register at Swype and download.


How To Pick The Right Android Keyboard For YOU

There are tons of ways to tap text into your Android (y’know, when you’re not just talking to it). CareAce looked at the stock 2.1 keyboard, Better, Swype Beta, TouchPal, SwiftKey Beta and ThickButtons and sorted out what’s what.


Texting World Record Shaves 10 Seconds Off Previous Swype Record

Crazy texting app Swype has broken its previous record for the world’s fastest texting, with a British woman texting the Guinness Book of World Record’s tricky phrase in just 25.94 seconds on a Samsung Galaxy S phone.
