Swype for Symbian Launches

Swype is a keyboard available for Android OS based devices that lets you draw between the characters of words to enter text on a virtual keyboard. By using the Swype system to enter text, it allows for text entry up to about 40 words per minute.

Swype is now landing on Symbian touchscreen devices and has been made compatible with several Nokia S60 5th Edition touchscreen phones which includes the Nokia 5800, Nokia 5230, Nokia X6, Nokia N97 and Nokia N97 mini.

Features included on the Symbian version include…
* Standard QWERTY keyboard layout makes Swype easy to learn
* Use a stylus or finger – Swype’s amazing input path analyzer allows you to go fast and sloppy. Just make a reasonable effort to trace through the word and Swype will do the rest
* Double Tap Editing – Make a mistake? Double tap on a word to bring up a list of other possible matches.
* Auto-Spacing
* Auto-Capitalization
* Auto Spelling Correction
* Automatic Help – Swype detects when you may be having trouble or might benefit from a particular feature and prompts you with helpful tips and instructions
* Instant access to Symbols, Numbers and Editing functions
* 65,000-word Learning Dictionary – Chances are the word you are typing is already in the Swype dictionary. If it isn’t, just tap it out once followed by a space and Swype will remember it for future use.
