Swype For Android Has Been Officially Discontinued

Swype Keyboard on Android and iOS will No Longer Receive Updates

When a Redditor claiming to have reached out the company regarding an issue, Nuance allegedly responded by saying that it "will no longer be updating the Swype+Dragon keyboard for Android". The app was launched back in 2013 and is still popular.

Swype Keyboard was one of the first few 3rd party keyboards available on Google Plays Store. As or now, are you still using the Swype keyboard app on iOS? However, do note that any and all bugs that show up in the future will remain unfixed, hence, now is the right time to switch to some other keyboard app.

XDA-Developers was able to verify the statement from Nuance.

But mobile keyboard startup Swype, created in Seattle in the early 2000s by technology pioneer Cliff Kushler, achieved that status. Nuance, the company that bought Swype in 2011 for $100M, told a redditor today that they are no longer developing for the Swype keyboard and that they have chose to exit the "direct-to-consumer keyboard business".

The iOS app was confirmed to be discontinued on this ZenDesk post. However, it would hardly make any sense since the keyboard is no longer in development.

However, we are sad to announce that Swype+Dragon for Android has faced end of development. The company does not want to put efforts in the segment that is not returning anything. Well, the Swype Keyboard app made its way to Android back in April 2013, and after nearly five years, it has been discontinued. The app is available in Google Play Store for $1.

Both of the abovementioned virtual keyboard apps numbered over a hundred million downloads each, with Google's first-party option now over 500 million.
