On a regular touchscreen qwerty keyboard, the user normally taps each letter, one-by-one to form a word. With Swype, you’re able to touch the first letter then move your stylus or your finger to each additional letter without lifting it.
The device recognizes the path and your word shows up on the screen.
Since it would work on any touchscreen, it might be cool for a Quicken Loans mobile mortgage kiosk.
I don’t know how accurate the word recognition is or how well it accounts for human error, but it’s pretty cool nonetheless.
