    Is there a way to turn off word prediction when using swype keyboard. I would like to have typed what I actually swyped instead of what it thinks I meant

    Word prediction is necessary when using gesture typing. The reason is that your finger moves across multiple keys when you drag your finger from one letter on the keyboard to another. Without word prediction, the keyboard would not know which letters you drag your finger across is actually one you want to type or just happen to be in between letters you want to type.
