Nuance Confirms that Swype Keyboard for Android and iOS is Discontinued

Swype Keyboard on Android and iOS will No Longer Receive Update Swype Keyboard for Android with Dragon Dictation has been Discontinued

For years, Swype Keyboard was one of the best third-party keyboards for Android, with a focus on swipe typing and voice dictation. Brings back memories, right?

The Swype Keyboard app has been discontinued.

The official announcement is yet to be made by the app developer but if you are a long time user of the Swype keyboard, this should be the time to make a change.

Nuance Communications, Inc. - the developer behind Swype Keyboard - has announced that it will no longer update both the iOS and Android versions of the app. Meanwhile, Swype's direct-to-consumer business model stagnated, relying on paid apps even as other keyboards offered a similar experience for free.

On the company's support page the same message is posted, but mentioning Swype for iOS instead.

Some speculate that Nuance chose to discontinue Swype due to loss of popularity.

Disney agreed to buy Fox's movie and television studios and some cable and worldwide TV businesses in December for $52.4 billion. Energy stocks, which were among the biggest losers last week, were among the biggest winners, thanks to bargain hunters.


The Swype keyboard revolutionized how mobile phone users input text through an easy "Swype".

Though many users may still want to hold on to Swype for the time being, they'll sooner or later need to make that switch.

The major portion of the hit that Swype received was due to the launch of the Gboard keyboard from Google.

While Swype continues to be listed on Google Play at the time of writing this article, when trying to access the iOS version on the US App Store there is a message saying that the app is now not available. The last update we featured was when Star Trek themes were added to the Swype keyboard.

For those of you looking for a replacement for Swype, Gboard is your best bet and also, Swiftkey is still around.
