Swype now available for free

I used to love SwiftKey on my Galaxy S4. My favorite feature was "swipe to type". When SwiftKey arrived on iOS, I immediately installed it on both my iPhone 6+ and my iPad Air. For reasons I can't explain, I was unexcited about SwiftKey on these devices.

Now, Swype is available as a free download, probably for a limited time, then it may go back to $.99. I have to say that Swype's keyboard on my iOS devices is far superior to SwiftKey and I am enjoying swiping to type again on both my iPhone and iPad. If you haven't tried swiping to type, now is the time to try it for free with Swype. I find that I am probably twice as fast swiping with Swype as I am typing with the standard iOS keyboard and I am a very fast typer on a full sized keyboard.

I'd love to hear other's experiences with Swype!
