    Kinda reminds me of blindtype.

    When Swype was in its perpetual beta it was their unconventional and thoroughly frustrating
    distribution model that drove me to SwiftKey and I haven't looked back since. I'm willing to give Dryft a try, but I won't put up with unpredictable expiration dates or updates that aren't handled through the play store.

      I never saw any issues with that.
      Swype would automagically give me a notification when an update was available. I downloaded it and was good to go.
      And seriously, Swype in my opinion is so much better than Swiftkey, I would have gone even more complicated ways to use it.

        For me they both have there faults, but as far as prediction and swyping swype is hands down better. SwiftKey is frustratingly bad. Im actually back on stock android KB now.

          I hot swap them.
          Swype is my standard keyboard. When it comes to swiping, it beats the crab out of Swiftkey.
          When I'm in a plane during turbulences, I switch to Swiftkey typing, not swiping.

        LOL, on more than one occasion I was away from home when Swype abruptly expired and dropped me to the stock Android keyboard as I was about to answer some Emails/texts. With no Wifi updating would have been slow, and early on updating required a password that I could never remember (I already have enough passwords in my life, I don't need another). Twice I had problems with the upgrade process not even working properly. No keyboard is worth that hassle. They should just have used the Play Store like everyone else.

          OK, I have great mobile network coverage everywhere, so updating was never an issue. Plus, for an access as meaningless as this, I have simply used the same password I always use for this kind of signup.

            More like you were lucky to never try updating when their servers were having issues. Which they did. A lot.

            I also ditched it after being unable to update for a week or more at one point.

    Sounds interesting, I'll have to give this a shot. Thanks for the heads up :)

      What does that have to do with anything? :/

    What does the keyboard look like?

    I'm really surprised to hear people had issues with Swype. It came stock on my old phone and I quickly signed up for the beta so I could use it on all my devices. Never had a problem and as soon as I found out they were putting it on the play store I bought it immediately. Best keyboard out there by a long shot. The killer feature for me is being able to swype out a whole paragraph and then go back and fix words one at a time well after you've typed them.
