  • Extremely Buggy

    By MarkTulluria
    Always freezes and glitches out on you. Usually it becomes unresponsive at the numberpad keyboard, and other times it doesn't show the bottom row of the keyboard. It's extremely frustrating and I've had enough. Uninstalling.
  • Keyboard locks up

    When switching to numbers, the keyboard will lock up on numbers only, and not allow getting back to letters. Sometimes the keyboard freezes altogether and I need to power-cycle my phone to reset the app. So annoying! Please fix. This happens multiple times per day. I'm using an iPhone 7+ 11.2.1
  • Critically important product, but seriously flawed

    The swype keyboard is the only thing that make IOS tolerable for me, and this is a great iteration of the concept, except ...It freezes often. The only way to get it to function again is to completely reboot the phone. It's really annoying. Also, while you're at the task of making the iPhone useable, why not go all the way and put numbers across the top of the letters? I have this large screen, but i am still treated like it would take to much real estate to put another row of inputs across the screen. Silly.
  • Turning Off Full Access to See if That Fixes the Bug

    By To Scan QR Code, Do This:
    From Swype's webpage for this app: "You only need to enable “Full Access” if you would like to download more languages, or to use purchased Swype themes. You can disable “Full Access” once you have completed your language download, or you have accessed Swype Keyboard after purchasing premium themes." This app has been malfunctioning on my iPhone X, but I didn't know that it only needs full access to download items. I'm going to revoke full access to see if that fixes the bug that causes the app to stop working. I'll update this review in a while when I think I've determined the answer.
  • Keyboard freezes even with updated version of iOS 10

    In the last week the keyboard has frozen twice. Had to uninstall and reinstall. Heading over to Swiftkey now.

    Pretty good app however, swype typing on the iPhone 7 was very smooth and accurate. Upgraded to the iPhone X and the accuracy is horrible. Never gets words right. Have to swype one letter over from the correct one to read accurate. Very slow and laggy when deleting text as well. Update and fix and I will change my rating. Thank you
  • So glad to see this on iPad now.

    I showed this to a friend on my Android phone and he was disappointed because it wasn't available back then on ioad. I'm thrilled it is now. I haven't had issues, I read some reviews where they talk of bugs. But I'm not hitting bugs yet, except some apps ignore my settings to use Swype and give me apples keyboard instead. I can manually change to Swype, but an annoyance. I don't blame Swype. My biggest issue is with Apple iPad not Swype. If I needed to inserted a letter in the middle of a word, say change word to World. I simply cannot place the text cursor I INTO a word. I have to hope Swype offers the right correction or delete the whole thing and retype it! Frustrating.. Again an apple thing that is less of a problem on android. The one improvement I feel Swype MUST MUST MUST do is recognize that the iPad is not a four inch screen. I'm using a 12.9 iPad. The screen keyboard IS HUGE. my Swypes are up to 10 inches wide. This is less comfortable because my hand is traveling all over the place. I don't need such a big keyboard. Landscape is horrible. ONE, OFFER TO ADD THE NUMPAD ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE KEYBOARD. Plenty of room for it in portrait and fields of room in landscape. Maybe even offer a left pad of customizable keys. So I can have punctuation and common symbols ready all the time. That would be ideal as many of our passwords have symbols like $&_-#=+! Which we must type all day long. That improvement would move Swype on iPad to the killer territory it is on my little phone.
  • Please fix emoji list so we can customize

    I love this app and yes, sometimes things are frustrating but in case anyone hadn't noticed, the default emojis are sad. Like every time I reply to a text I see a very unhappy emoji along with a BLACK heart. I need all the positive I can get. Please allow us to add our own commonly used emojis to the list. I'm wicked fast with Swype to the amazement of my friends. Like everything else though, it's always good to proof before sending 😁

    This app used to be free on android. Disappointed at what I had to pay for it on iOS. Even more disappointed that you want even more money for the colored themes?? No.
