What is Android Swype Keypad?

Use a drawing motion to trace entire words. To begin, place your finger (or the stylus) on the key with the first letter of the word and glide to the following letters. Lift your finger after the last letter. Sloppy is ok –try to get near each letter while gliding quickly from letter to letter.
Spaces are usually automatic. Swype a word, lift your finger, and continue on to the next word.
Android Swype keypad will add the space for you. To enter a double letter in a word, just "scribble" on the key. Words can include punctuation. Example: To enter the English word "it's", glide through the 'i', 't', apostrophe, and 's' keys. Swype accented characters by gliding through all the letters for the word, without concern for the accent.
Usually, Swype recognizes the word and correctly accents the letters. Traced paths might match multiple words, popping up a Word Choice Window. The first word in the list is selected by default when you start to Swype the next word. If Swype doesn't know your word, tap each letter of the word then Space. Swype automatically learns it for future input. To enter numbers and symbols, tap the SYM key. The Symbols keyboard shows alternate characters for each key.
