Other innovations include new keyboard layouts and automatic suggestions for emojis. Users with an iPad can access all available Swype themes.

No other independent, paid keyboard for iOS 8 currently supports so many languages, "said Aaron Sheedy, Vice President of Mobile Solutions, Mobile Division, Nuance. "Users are enthusiastic about the ease with which you 'Swypet' from one letter to another. It's also fun to see how words and phrases appear automatically as you sweep, almost as quickly as you think of them. "
