Every week, Apple takes an app that’s usually a paid app and covers the price of it, making it free for iOS users. This week, Apple’s made the popular Swype keyboard free. New apps of the week are announced on Thursday, and usually increase in price after that. You can find the free app of the week on the featured page of the App Store app, or you can download Swype directly here.
The Swype keyboard is an alternate keyboard that iOS 8 users can use in all apps. It uses predictive text to allow users to slide their fingers across a keyboard without lifting their finger to type out words. It’s useful when you’re tying to type with one hand. It’s free, so why not check it out?
