Trekkies rejoice! Star Trek themes now available on Swype keyboard

Before all your Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones fandoms, one of the most die-hard group of geek fans out there are the Trekkies or those who love the Star Trek universe. And while fanboying/fangirling is now more mainstream than ever, that hasn’t doused the ardor of these fans, even though some weren’t that happy with the reboots. Another way you can aim to please Trekkies is by giving them digital bonuses, and now virtual keyboard Swype has done that very thing with their latest update.

Swype update: better number entry, two-word phrase prediction

Virtual keyboards have become as necessary to most users as any other app on their smartphone. Apps like Fleksy and SwiftKey have been adding a lot of new features that would make it easier for users to type out messages, and even include other multi-media attachments to make typing more fun. The latest one to bring an update to their app is Swype and it brings with it better ways of entering numbers and also predict two-word phrases better.

New HTC devices to have TouchPal as default keyboard

Starting with its brand new flagship, the HTC M9 series, all of the OEM's new devices will now have TouchPal as their default input engine. This means that they have technically replaced Swype, which has been their default keyboard for the past years, although no official communication has been made regarding this change. HTC did announce that the brand new M9 smartphone is now using TouchPal, but did not comment as to why they've made the change.

Acer now to “ship” Swype virtual keyboard to selected devices

If you have an Acer smartphone, specifically some of the newer ones, and if you're tired or bored of using the built-in keyboard, your OEM has great news for you. They have just signed a partnership with app developer Nuance and this means that virtual keyboard Swype will be heading to your smartphone pretty soon. It will take you a bit of time to learn its continuous touch keyboard, but once you've gotten the hang of it, normal keyboads will soon lose its appeal for you.

Swype update: more languages, emoji support, floating keyboard

Virtual keyboards have become not just an alternative, but sometimes a necessity for people who are not satisfied with just the default keyboard of their devices. One of the standouts among the available apps in the market is Swype, and their latest update brings even more to the plate. They've added support for several new languages, a floating keyboard, and most exciting of all (well, for those who are crazy about them) is emoji support.

Google Keyboard hits the Play Store to rival the competition [Download]

If you loved what you saw from Google's keyboard in Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, we have some excellent and rather unexpected news this evening. Google has just packaged up and delivered their completely stock (and amazing) keyboard and released it to the Google Play Store. That means most Android devices can now enjoy that absolutely stock Jelly Bean keyboard with gesture typing and all.

Swype update brings improved word prediction and Dragon Dictation UI

After a seemingly never ending beta period, Nuance Communications released the Swype keyboard app into the Google Play Store in late-April. While the Play Store version of the app should have been familiar to anyone that had been using the beta release, it did come with a price to pay. Specifically, the Swype app arrived priced at $0.99. And while we suspect some long time beta users may have had a hard time paying, there is one perk that has come as a result of parting with that dollar.
