So how do you use Swype? all you have to do is slide or drag your finger across the letters of the word that you are trying to type and the software quickly guesses what you are trying to say with a high degree of accuracy most of the time. It is so amazingly fast and as soon as you learn it, you will get hooked and will never return to traditional tap typing on virtual keyboards.

Scroll to the bottom of the page and you can access the Tutorial and help page. Click on the Tutorial and you will have an interactive lessons on how to quickly learn Swype. Though Swype is so easy to learn and use, I suggest you try the tutorial first to avoid frustrations later when you badly need to type characters and punctuation.
