Swype, the most popular keyboard after the official gingerbread keyboard is hitting new limits with Swype 3.0 beta. Swype lets type without actually typing, instead you swype across the keys and it automatically predicts your intent and types the word for you.
What’s new in Swype 3.0:
- Tap Correction:You’ve always been able to jump back and forth between swiping through letters and tapping letters one-by-one; now you can do the latter without losing the autocorrect/predictive functionality that comes with swiping.
- Horizontal Word Choice: When there are multiple possible words for the letters you just swiped through, the options will be shown in a sliding horizontal bar above the keyboard as opposed to the strange popup selection window that Swype has had for a while.
- Available for devices with HVGA, WVGA, FWVGA, QVGA, WQVGA, WSVGA, qHD screen sizes
- A special Honeycomb-only WXGA version for Android tablets, which features a resizable and moveable keyboard
