If you’ve used an Android smartphone for at least 6 years, you’ve probably used Swype as your default keyboard. Instead of tapping individual keys with your fingers, Swype allows you to type faster by swiping through your letters on the screen. It’s so fast that it has broken a couple of records including a Guinness World Record.
Unfortunately, the custom keyboard’s days are numbered as the development of Swype has ended in order to focus on their AI solutions.

Questions and searches about BlackBerry’s first Android device has finally bared fruit; for Malaysians will have the PRIV by next week. This do or die device will be the brand’s pivotal move to see if it can still play the mobile game or close down for good.
A slider device would require a slightly different bent test, since the mechanisms that make up the ability to pop out the keyboard is a whole new ball game. Having said, JerryRigEverything uses a different methodology when tackling this odd smartphone, at least for our generation. Does the BlackBerry Priv get his seal of approval?
Communication began from face to face conversations and has become more of a virtual experience in its current state. No matter in voice, video or text, we’ve all found new ways to get our messages across. Words fly across our screens all the time, especially in our instant messaging apps, but are letters enough? Do they allow individuals to express themselves well? If you feel you’ve always used Emojis more often than just plain text, you should take a look at the keyboard by EmojiWorks’.
Button mashing was a thing of the past, at least for most smartphone users; don’t worry BlackBerry toting folks, we’ve got your backs and maybe soon people might give the qwerty loving brand a go again – thanks to the PRIV. The aforementioned device’s pre-order site went up and down and up again, with the price point getting a “discount” when it really went live. Perhaps one of the most anticipated launches in the brand’s history (you know, cause its an BlackBerry that runs on Android) will happen soon but a list of stock BB apps have been found on Google’s Play Store.
