Swype, the top paid third-party keyboard for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users running iOS 8, just learned a whole bunch of new languages -- 16 to be exact, bringing the total number to 21. Also new to Swype version 1.1 in iTunes is intuitive Emoji input. When you compose a message, Swype will analyze your choice of words and suggest appropriate Emojis, whether you're feeling happy, confused, tenacious, or satisfied.

"The response to Swype for iOS 8 has been amazing, and we’re thrilled to have quickly updated the app with 16 additional languages – the most currently available for any third-party keyboard for iOS 8," said Aaron Sheedy, vice president of mobile solutions, Mobile Division, Nuance. "People love the speed and ease of quickly Swyping from one letter to the next – and it’s incredibly cool to see the words and phrases you are about to Swype automatically appear as you go – almost at the same time you’re thinking them."

There are also new keyboard layouts -- you can choose between QWERTY, QWERTZ, and AZERTY, as well as a new layout specifically designed for the iPad that's supposed to make it easier to Swype out your messages. Speaking of which, iPad users can now use all of Swype's themes for free, Nuance says. They include Dark, Light, Earth, Sand, and Sun.

Swype version 1.1 with all of its fancy new features is available now in iTunes for $0.99.

That is funny, Swiftkey learned a lot of new languages today too. Too bad I deleted it and just paid for swype. I don't really understand what the point of Swiftly was other than to provide a dark keyboard alternative.

I never really got into swype keyboard. I guess I'm an old fart but I can bang out just fine on a standard Android keyboard.
