Alas, Swype keyboard app for Android and iOS gets discontinued
Feb 20, 2018, 19:13
So let's dive in to see some more details on the matter.
Nothing was mentioned about the Android version in the iOS announcement.
However after the arrival of the keyboard applications from Google as well as the increased number of competitors and better keyboards from Android smartphone makers, Swype kind of drifted in the background. What this means is that the app moved out of the priority list of the company.
Dancedar, a Reddit user, reportedly found out about the end of support for the app when an e-mail was sent to inquire about a problem. Interestingly, the co-founder of Swype - Randy Marsden - now serves as iOS keyboard manager for Apple, overseeing the text input technologies for iPhones and iPads.
Former Swype CEO Mike McSherry - who was instrumental in growing the mobile keyboard's usage and later sold the company to Nuance - told GeekWire that it was sad to see the product "mothballed".
Swype Keyboard gained popularity as being the default keyboard on plenty of Huawei devices but now Nuance is ending the support and all direct-to-consumer business to focus on AI solutions for sale directly to businesses.
In the consumer space, Google especially has also doubled down on its own Gboard keyboard (which includes a dictation feature). In fact, Swype was one of the first keyboards that allowed users to type by sliding their fingers over the keyboard.
There will be more to the story, so be sure to stay tuned in for more details.
Either way, if you look through any of the recent reviews for Swype, it appears as if the app is struggling. Let us know in the comments down below.
