    Hahahaha...I was just about to post this. Some people (myself included) prefer Swype while others prefer SwiftKey. Merge the two together and it will be the ultimate keyboard.

    Thanks for sharing. I love Swiftkey. To have this with swype like feature is like peanut butter and jelly together.

    I loved swype but it doesn't work well with my SG3 and goSMS (the keyboard blocks the input screen)

    I have been using swiftkey and it's OK, but I do miss swyping. This is going to be awesome thanks!!

    I'm hoping this just gets baked into the current SwiftKey instead of being a separate app after it comes out of beta.

    BTW, I like the neon light-like trace.

    This will be very interesting. I have always heard great things about Swift Key, but once I started with Swype, I just can't tap anymore.

    I wonder if this will be a separate product or purchase from Swift Key?

    Wish I had bought Swift Key for 99 cents during the 25th billion download sale! (see above as to why I did not.)

    I got Swiftkey as an Amazon free app, and I can install it on my Nexus7, but it doesn't function. The free version works (it appears the paid version is no longer Amazon supported). I signed up for beta to see what happens. Love Swype.

    I'm really looking forward to a usable Swype-like experience where I'm not forced to be a perpetual beta tester just for the privilege of using their product. Swype doesn't play nice with CoPilot, so I have to switch to SwiftKey while using CoPilot. Besides that, the last two updates to Swype ticked me off with issues that should never have made it to beta release.

    Apparently swiftkey flow will be a part or subset of Swiftkey. Wish I had bought Swiftkey when it was on sale recently for $2? Or back when it was $1.

    Is it a advanced version of Swiftkey 3 ?
    I found swiftkey a little bit uneasy to handle but will try this one.

    Their server must be getting hammered, can't get the language pack to download. Once got it to 86% and it failed, the rest, won't even start. :p

    I love swiping, i have used countless apps that perform it, most notably like SlideIt, Swype, and now SwiftKey Flow :)

    EDIT: With the language pack, mine doesn't even start haha

    So far, not really liking it. Lots of errors and fixing them is difficult. It doesn't give nearly as many options for replacement words as Swype does. Maybe it just needs to learn, so I'll keep using it for now.
