Swype, the popular keyboard replacement for Android devices has received a long-awaited update today. The latest version of the app now supports the latest version of Android – Ice Cream Sandwich, which means you can use Swype on your Samsung Galaxy Nexus (yes we know, there are unofficial versions of Swype out there that already support it). In addition to support for Android 4.0, accuracy has been improved, which should help your overall typing speed and help eliminate mistakes in your texts. Swype Add-ons is now a feature of the keyboard, with the first add-on being Dragon Go!
If you already have Swype on your phone or tablet, you should receive the notification to update. For those of you who don’t have Swype yet, just head over to the Swype Beta website, sign up and download the installer for your Android device.
