Nokia and Swype Inc are proud to introduce Swype Beta for Symbian touch device.

Swype provides a faster and easier way to input text on any screen. With one continuous finger or stylus motion across the screen keyboard, the patented technology enables users to input words faster and easier than other data input methods—at over 40 words per minute. The application is designed to work across a variety of devices such as phones, tablets, game consoles, kiosks, televisions, virtual screens and more.

Swype has worked closely with Nokia to bring you the best text input experience on your S60 5th Edition handset. Swype plugs directly into the Symbian input method to ensure seamless integration with every application on the device.

Swype excels in language support, allowing users to Swype in many different languages. Swype Beta for Symbian includes support for English US, Spanish, Canadian French, and Brazilian Portuguese. The Swype keyboard will not be available unless you set the writing language to one of these four supported languages. Extensive language support is part of our ongoing development and more languages will be supported in the future.

Key features

  • Standard QWERTY keyboard layout makes Swype easy to learn
  • Use a stylus or finger – Swype’s amazing input path analyzer allows you to go fast and sloppy. Just make a reasonable effort to trace through the word and Swype will do the rest
  • Double Tap Editing – Make a mistake? Double tap on a word to bring up a list of other possible matches.
  • Auto-Spacing
  • Auto-Capitalization
  • Auto Spelling Correction
  • Automatic Help – Swype detects when you may be having trouble or might benefit from a particular feature and prompts you with helpful tips and instructions
  • Instant access to Symbols, Numbers and Editing functions
  • 65,000-word Learning Dictionary – Chances are the word you are typing is already in the Swype dictionary. If it isn’t, just tap it out once followed by a space and Swype will remember it for future use.
