What is Swype 1.6.2?

Swype 1.6.2 is one of the top alternative keyboards that lets you accurately input words faster and easier. It’s like no other third-party keyboard out there and it is the first gesture-based keyboard t, and still remains the best. Keep using Swype and you will notice that the app learns the way you type.

Developed and published by Nuance Communications, Swype originally released on Android devices but is now also available on iPhone and iPad devices for $0.99. This app contains In-App Purchases, which include different themes for the keyboard layout.

The app can be a bit difficult to set up at the start. Thankfully, the app features a step by step tutorial that explains how to set up the keyboard in the iOS Settings app. Swype’s activation screen will tell you how to select Swype’s keyboard  (which is Settings -> General -> Keyboard). But the fact that it doesn’t tell you if you have done it correctly kind of left me puzzled for a bit.

Swype’s keyboard layout can be changed using a selection of five free different themes: Dark, Light, Earth and Sun. But a little problem with these themes is that the space bar blends in together with the comma and period keys. If you are typing words by swiping then you won’t have a problem because the app puts a space whenever you finish a word. However, it can cause some incorrect keystrokes if you prefer typing the traditional way. If you want more themes, then you can get more by buying In-App Purchases. Most of them cost $0.99 except for the “Enhanced Bundle” which costs $1.99 and “Colorful” which costs $2.99.


The app comes with customizable keyboard layouts (QWERTY, QWERTZ and AZERTY). Tap on letters and as you type you will see suggested words pop up above the keyboard that are based on the context of what you are typing. It’s mostly like the built in keyboard seen in iOS 8, except that in Swype it is somewhat easier to scroll to take a look at another set of options than it is with the normal keyboard. You simply do a leftward swipe. When you type in a word that Swype can’t recognize then it will let you add the word to a personalized dictionary if you want.

This app isn’t just about tapping letters out, obviously. It can also be used for writing text messages, emails, notes and many other written words by easily dragging your finger around the keyboard in a close estimation of where the correct keys are. Sounds like it is impossible, right? How can you manage to swipe a word such as “go” when you have to drag your finger over the H, J and K keys? Well, apparently Swype has such a smart engine that it most of the time can get the right word. When it gets the wrong word, though, then you can simply tap the correct suggestion located above the keyboard if the suggestion is good.

It’s quite impressive how simple and easy it is to swipe through words. Of course, you are bound to make a mistake when doing it very fast so, make sure you don’t send a totally misleading word.


Apart from it being most of the time very accurate, it’s also pretty fast performance wise. Another big advantage over other third-party keyboards has to do with its privacy policy. Most third-party keyboard apps collect the information you type for better word recognition. Swype, on the other hand, says in its FAQ that the information never gets collected from your phone, even if the app has full access. The app doesn’t even need full access to use all the features it offers, as long as the Guided Access is turned off in your Accessibility settings.

The Verdict

Overall, Swype is a great alternative to the standard keyboard. It offers a customizable personal dictionary, various keyboard layouts, great themes, lots of languages and support for emoji. It’s fast, simple, easy and accurate most of the time when swiping. Its privacy policy is a huge plus compared to other third-party keyboards which collect your data. If you are worried about your personal information being collected, then have no fear, Swype will never take out the information from your iOS device. The personal dictionary lets you easily add words the app does not recognize, and the ability to remove them as well.
