Terrible  Distortusmaximus  1 star

Horrible. Android version is great. This one is terrible


Unresponsive  NotAFanOfSwype  1 star

This keyboard is unresponsive. It is not worthy anymore. Very annoying! Developers this is $0.99? I wouldn't even buy this piece of crap if unresponsive.


Please update!  brrrrrrrrrrrrrandi  2 star

I love Swype and am dying having to use the iPhone keyboard but Swype will not work after the newest update. Please help!

Abandoned Support  CJ Maje  1 star

This app no longer works after the Apple updates. The keyboard I purchased does not appear. Words "incorrect" themselves three words after you type them. Previous features are no longer available, and it does not connect to the server. This is a dead app do not buy.


App too distracted on developing new features  Kodestar  1 star

Instead of trying to support all these new features like emojis, themes, etc, focus on stabilizing your main feature: a functioning keyboard that uses swiping gestures. Rein it in for a bit, regroup, and focus your devs on a bevy of backlogged bugs, not features.


Almost there  deagre  3 star

I've used Swype for many years. On the Android system it was top notch. I could use it easily with minor complaints about auto correcting. The iPhone version is a little painful. Anytime I enter my email address, it automatically puts a space after the @ symbol. Also, when entering numbers it doesn't stay on the number pad. I also noticed that the emoji screen offered doesn't have all the emojis as when using the iPhone keyboard. It would be nice to be able to "talk to text" also without changing keyboards. These minor changes would improve the product. That being said, I'm not willing to go back to the stock keyboard. Who really wants to use their thumbs?


Terrible app no support or updats since 2016  h3rnand3zz  1 star

This keyboard app used to be the best ever but they have no updates and other apps have completely surpassed them .... It's a shame because I paid for this app and thought it would still be supported .... Do not buy this app it will not work correctly compared to Gboard or Swiftkey ...

Worked great for a while  JK Slice  4 star

Hey guys, I really love the way this app functions. I've been having a problem recently though. It had been happening on my iPhone 5s too, but since I got myself a 7s (128 gigs) more often than not, I try to open the keyboard and it shows up blank and unresponsive. I finally had to uninstall the app. Let me know when you've updated and I'll gladly get back to using it. Thanks


Disappointed  DIVA_DIVA_ANGEL  1 star

The app needs to be updated to the point where I have to use the regular keyboard. Keyboard won't show just shows gray area so frustrating please fix .

Good keyboard  Classical Guitar Mikel  3 star

I really like Swype. The keyboard is very smooth, but it does need to be updated. Last update was 2016. Gboard and Swiftkey update frequently. That's why I gave it 3 stars. Gboard is the best overall keyboard, but the swipe function is better on Swype.

Phive phases

Terrible. Locks up keyboard  Phive phases  1 star

The keyboard often locks up. Or it doesn't appear in certain apps, at different times. May work one minute and the next minute it won't. It also has a terrible capacity to predict what you are typing. It doesn't seem to learn very well

Not That Desperate

What happened?  Not That Desperate  3 star

It is regularly inaccurate, it autocorrects, and auto spaces inconsistently. It's very buggy. It used to be a joy to type with like four years ago, but it has been a slow decline. It's almost unusable. I would of gave it two stars but still use it as my main keyboard. Hope it gets better, but if not...


I just came running back after trying others  Bound4Heaven  4 star

ETA May13, 2017: i'm using speech to text right now because my app spends more time crashing I'm working. This back is soon as they fix it! It won't even let me look to the regular keyboard I have to shut my phone off completely! Here's the review I just wrote on one I tried: I had been using Swype for several years. Since my first iPhone after leaving the droid platform. Little did I know. I reswiped the word more than three times and it wasn't even an option in the suggestion list. That happened on every word of my first sentence! I tried a little longer to let it "learn me" but I quickly dropped it and went running back to Swype! When you back space to delete the wrong word in Swype, it removes the entire word it just chose. In this app, it chose a whole word (just the wrong one) but you have to delete each letter! Ugh! The predictions were terrible and totally non intuitive. Maybe there are good features, but if it can get the basics right, I'll never know about bonus features. Run to Swype! Plus, I love how I can get emoticons to show when I Swype key words. Like smile for a 😃! I gave it four stars because I get frustrated when I check that it chose the right word, but after I hit send/post/etc, I see it changed a word. However I love the smart predictions, lots of shortcuts, full word edits, and that they continue to make improvements. I'll never leave again!


Bugs  BFK_Eagleye  2 star

Swype used to be a good keyboard, till every word you swiped got changed to a word that is irrelevant to your conversation causing you to have to put more time into the message. Until the bugs are fixed I won't use Swype.


They just couldn't care less about users  notthatmine13  1 star

I was a swype user back when I was on Android, and I was happy to see my favorite third party input solution coming to iOS, however, they don't seem to care for updating on IOS platform nearly as much as they do on Android (or have they stopped updating there as well? ). It often stucks at a blank screen, problems like such have not been solved throughout their super slow and very few updates. And I wonder why they support so many languages already on Android, but way less on IOS. No matter how users express their need, they just don't seem to care. Rumor has it that the next iOS system update will no longer support 32 bits apps, if they don't update, it's not accessible for its users anymore. Ppl at Swype, you do remember that we paid for this app, right?


Serves job and functions well but...  skillmaxer  3 star

One major complaint of mine is who the heck was responsible for the word prediction algorithm?! It's incredibly atrocious, please fix this or at least have it better predict words and stop auto correcting words that are correct just because the algorithm "thinks" another word fits better when in reality it doesn't. Ex: what's your topic? Turns to: what's your fox?

Metal Aria

Works very intermittently.  Metal Aria  2 star

I have to shut off the option because it stops working so frequently. I will either get a blank panel with no input or NOTHING. Same with my iPad. Pretty disappointed.


Difficult to use and no customization  ExtremeTG  1 star

I get that this app is more focused for you to swipe with but I bought it because of the old customizations and the themes were free! And oddly enough, it seems that this app has gotten significantly worse over the times. Now it just seems that SwiftKey is better in every possible way.

The Last Man 56

almost great  The Last Man 56  3 star

Needs more frequent updates. Bugs have persisted for too long. - The keyboard itself is unstable: won't open reliably, most notably in Gmail and Messages. - I love the shortcut gestures, but some still are either buggy or aren't intelligent enough yet. Often a comma erases the letter before it and replaces it with a space; also, typing emoticons is a bit of a hassle because it autocorrects the space and pushes the colon back up against the text; there are similar but opposite problems with quotes and parentheses, where a space will be added where none is needed. - Autocorrect needs to be more obvious when it replaces a phrase. I will look at the word I just typed, see that is correct, and move on, only to sometimes catch later that an entire phrase has been replaced incorrectly. Makes for an aggravating experience. I like what they are trying to do, but the intelligence isn't there yet. Phrase replacement ought to be an option than can be turned off. I've tried all the other swiping keyboards and always come back to this one because of the punctuation gesture shortcuts and how easy it is on the dark keyboard to long press for other punctuation marks. Also, I text shortcuts in iOS and would like to see Swype better incorporate those as well. Hope this app keeps being developed because it's great and could be so much better. A wonderful achievement so far!


Impossibly buggy  Quinn824  1 star

Can't use it anymore, the safari bug makes it unusable.
