For those signed up for the Swype beta for Android, today greets you with another update to the super-awesome virtual keyboard. The update includes support for German and Portuguese as well as the addition of a few new gestures such as auto-space suppression (swipe from spacebar to backspace). Word prediction has been enhanced and prediction for words with clashing gestures such as ‘want’ and ‘wasn’t’ have been improved on top of numerous small tweaks and bug fixes.
It is recommended those currently using Swype uninstall both the application and its installer package before downloading the new version here. You will need to login using your e-mail and password from your original registration to receive the update.
