I like the app, however, there are inconsistencies and redundancies with key symbol availability. For example, on some apps the apostrophe is not available and on other apps the symbols that are available on the main keyboard, such as the colon, are giving twice. I'd like the keyboard keys to stay consistent across apps.

It's close to being as good as GBoard, but it misses the mark. You really have to dig through the settings after you first install it to get things just right, so I think many users will be driven away by that. The UI is starting to feel very outdated. Overall, it's decent but I think the settings should be organized more like Swiftkey or GBoard and have a search button as well to make things easier.

- Requires a healthy minute to go through the settings. - Key spacing is too tight and there isn't an option for border adjustment, so I am frequently mistyping and missing keys. -understanding that Swype is in beta, it is extremely innacurate and needs more attention in the future. - I've deducted a star because the app hasn't been updated in a year
