Nuance is discontinuing its Swype keyboard for Android and iOS

Swype Keyboard for Android and iOS has been Discontinued Swype Keyboard for Android with Dragon Dictation has been Discontinued

Swipe gesture typing won't perhaps be the same again now that the popular keyboard app Swype stands terminated for both the Android and iOS platform. With no regular update to take care of future risks, it would be increasingly unsafe to continue relying on the Swype keyboard app.

The iOS app was confirmed to be discontinued on this ZenDesk post.

Nuance is giving up on the third-party keyboard business, discontinuing its Swype Keyboard app for iOS and Android.

As Xda points out, Nuance has been concentrating on its b2b business using its speech recognition tech to enable speech to text utility - such as a dedicated version of its dictation product which is targeted at healthcare workers. What this means is that while the keyboard is still usable, just don't expect it to be updated anymore in the future with new features or bug fixes, but if you think that it works fine for you now, you can go ahead and keep using it.

Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau begins weeklong India visit
Approximately 1.4 million Canadians are of Indian heritage and India is Canada's second largest source of immigrants. Trudeau will meet with a number of Indian CEOs and business leaders and visit some of India's biggest tourist sites.

But mobile keyboard startup Swype, created in Seattle in the early 2000s by technology pioneer Cliff Kushler, achieved that status.

On-screen keyboards can make our digital lives much easier.

Swype for Android arrived on the Play Store in 2013, developed by the same company behind the "Dragon" natural speaking software. Even if most of its loyal users claim that it performs better than other apps, the download numbers might prove otherwise. Among the established alternatives is Swype, which has been available for almost five years on Android and over three on iOS. Those include Gboard, Fleksy or SwiftKey all of which are thriving on the Play Store.

The major portion of the hit that Swype received was due to the launch of the Gboard keyboard from Google.
