Swype comes to iPhone and iPad to help you type faster

The Swype tracing keyboard is now available for iPhone and iPad. Swype allows you to trace around the keys to spell what you are saying, using a autocorrect to guess what you're trying to type.

As you spell out your words on Swype, you'll see its orange tracer following your finger around. You don't need to worry about hitting the space bar, as lifting your finger and putting it down again starts the new word. Swype learns how you type, and you can add and remove words from your personal Swype dictionary. The prediction boxes on top of the keyboard change as you swipe through, responding to where your finger travels.

Swype lets you choose from a number of themes, including Dark, Light, Earth, and Sun. All of these themes are available for free. Swype is currently available in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish.

You can download Swype from the App Store now.
