Swype for Android Update Coming Within the Next Few Days to Add Android 4.0 Support


Swype revealed that they would soon be bringing an update to their Android application to support Ice Cream Sandwich devices and it looks like we won’t have to wait long to see that update land into the laps of users everywhere. They have tweeted that their next update is “only days away.” Other than the addition of Android 4.0 support this will likely be a slight bug fixer. We’ll be sure to let you guys know the moment that update goes live in the Android market. [Twitter]
