The original swiping keyboard just keeps getting smarter. Not only can you type up to 40 words per minute with Swype Beta using a continuous tracing motion, it can suck in your contacts from text messages, Facebook, Gmail and Twitter. Plus, Swype offers next word prediction, tons of gestures (including ones for cut and paste) and a Living Language feature that updates your dictionary with trending words. We love the Dragon Dictation voice integration, which is fast and remembers all of those tricky proper nouns. Although it’s not available from the Google Play Store, this free app is well worth the download from beta.swype.com.
