GLOBAL – Nearly 30,000 customers have swiped the latest trial version of Swype at Nokia Beta Labs to try the only truly joined up way of writing texts and emails on a smartphone. For those of you who have never seen it, instead of tapping your message out on a keypad, you simply slide your finger from letter to letter to form each word. We’re now on to version 2.0 of the service for Symbian smartphones including Symbian Anna devices and it allows you to do far more than before. We reckon the most useful new function is the “predictive tap auto-correction” allowing you to put things right if you slip up. There’s also split-screen support for Symbian Anna devices, 30 downloadable language dictionaries and a cleaner-looking interface.

You can help us make it even better by giving it a try and leaving your feedback. It works on all Symbian S60 5th Edition, Symbian^3 and Symbian Anna devices and it’s free to download.

Swype has been around for two years and one user even managed to set a new text writing record using it.

Once you have mastered it, try comparing your typing speeds on Swype and a conventional keypad.

Get it at Nokia Beta Labs and let us know what you think below.
