Nuance, the company that acquired veteran swipe-to-type keyboard maker Swype - all the way back in 2011, shelling out a cool $100M - has ended development of its Swype+Dragon dictation Android and iOS apps. We hope you enjoyed using Swype, we sure enjoyed working with the Swype community.
Notwithstanding the popularity of the Swype apps, Nuance has stated they are abandoning them to focus more on developing AI solutions for businesses. The user complied and provided what was needed but received a response that suggested the app was no longer supported by the developer.
The company will not add any new feature and the app will not get any update in future. In other words, Swype users, your favorite keyboard is now discontinued.

We are sad to announce that Swype+Dragon for Android has faced end of development. Users might want to download it now before it is permanently removed by the company soon. Among the established alternatives is Swype, which has been available for almost five years on Android and over three on iOS.
Apps such as Gboard, SwiftKey, and Fleksy are just a few of the honorable mentions based on popularity. That being said, the Swype keyboard doesn't cease to exist, it will still be there on the Play Store. In addition to being around on the Play Store for so long, many Huawei devices still ship with Swype preinstalled out of the box. What alternative keyboards do you recommend we check out?
