If you are one of those who writes many messages with your smartphoneYou have certainly heard of Swype or have read our app review about an app called SlideIT Keyboard. Who has one of them can testify: these are indispensable Android apps, because they make writing on the small keyboard much faster.
But until last night, the owners of devices running the Ice cream sandwich could not take advantage of Swype. The only way to do it was to customize the device through Custom ROMs. But a new version of Swype has been available since yesterday and is compatible with Android 4.0. For Brazilians interested in purchasing a Samsung Galaxy XIt's a great news. After all, they can already download Swype without having to make a Custom ROM.
Does Swype mean "drag" or "dictate"?
The update that Swype went through was not restricted to adapting to ICS. There are news regarding its features, too. One of them the Dragon GO. Dragon is one of the best speech recognition software on the market. The company that developed it, named Nuance, bought Swype some time ago for $ 100 million. Therefore, Swype (whose translation "drag") seems to have a new incompatibility. This time not with any operating system, but with its name. After all, if it is possible to dictate words to Swype, where is the need to drag to write them?
