Swype for Symbian^3 Launches: Download for N8 & C7 Now

By Jamie Pert - Oct 18, 2010

If you own either a Nokia N8 or C7 we have some good news for you, Swype has now been released for Symbian^3, this should make text input a lot quicker and easier.

If you have never used Swype and you want to try it out on you Symbian^3 handset check out this link, it has to be said that not everyone likes Swype, however some people think that it is the quickest and easiest way to input text on a touchscreen device.

Swype cleverly allows you to type by simply gliding your finger of the letters in a word, algorithms cleverly predict the words that you write, you can see a demo video of Swype embedded at the end of this post.

Swype has been backed by quite a lot of handset manufacturers, perhaps most notably it comes pre-installed on the Motorola Droid X, Droid 2, Samsung Galaxy S and apparently the Samsung Galaxy Tab, this shows just how popular Swype is becoming.

We would love to hear from you if you have installed Swype on your N8 or C7, let us know if all goes well in the comments section below, perhaps write your comment using Swype.

    Couldn't get Swype from OVI to work on my new N8 so I download SlideIT keyboard from the OVI instead. SlideIT is awesome once you get the hang of it. Definitely a faster way to input text. I'm using it to write this post.
