Swype is a great third-party keyboard. It’s a bit magical when you first use it; just run your finger in the general direction of the letter you need and words spring fully formed into your document. Swype did get a few words wrong overall, but this was down to our poor keyboard memory than it inaccurately processing the intended word. In our tests, and in general use, the time saved using Swype was genuine. With customisable dictionaries and gestures there’s a lot of versatility to the app.
