Typing words alone is great. However, punctuation and emoji support sucks. There's no entry to an emoji panel for the vast majority of text fields. Without the full emoji panel, you're stuck with a vaguely keyword-sorted list that's very hard to scroll through and often doesn't contain the desired emoji. As for punctuation, you have to memorize their exact placement from the number keyboard in order to get anything interesting with only one long press. Otherwise it's multiple taps to bring up the number keyboard, possibly dive into the second level, and finally to insert the desired punctuation.
This app is ok for what it is. I used swype exclusively for years. It was included for free on one of my devices and I was allowed to download various versions for free from that point on. Once I upgraded phones I lost the ability to download any version of sype for free. I almost paid the dollar and kept going. Instead I downloaded gboard! after one week of gboard I will never use swype again. gboard is as good or better in almost every way. In my eyes swype is a 3-4 star keyboard. When I was trapped unto upgrading something I had used for free it dropped it to a two star. I still have the tablet that allowed sype to run free. Im not sure why they didnt let me use it on my S7. Either way im grateful. I would not have tried gboard had I not been forced to pay for this.
Swype was not native to my new phone so I figured I'd try it from the app store. Swype is fantastic except for voice recognition. Dragon just doesn't compare to Google voice. I would like the option to choose other voice recognition rather than be forced into Dragon. Now I'm forced to choose between paying for Swype and having to deal with Dragon or just settling with Google keyboard. It's sad because it will probably be the latter since I use voice recognition so much even though I'd gladly pay for Swype if included a choice.
The Chinese symbols are all messed up with the latest version. Please bring back the old symbols keyboard. Users don't need the recently used symbol list. We hate things that changes constantly. And why Swype still doesn't support swiping for Cangjie?
The only good keyboard with swipe text entry. I spent a lot more time fixing errors when using alternatives like Swiftkey, Google Keyboard, and TouchPal. This one gets it right 99% of the time.
Privacy issues, a keyboard app that collects all kinds of data, also the voice recognition requires internet connection. It's not too different to using the stock voice input from google. I wanted an offline solution.
