iOS is often behind Android with a variety of features, but fortunately there are usually some good third-party options to bring functionality like swipe or glide typing to iPhone.
Swipe texting has been around for quite a while, but Apple still doesn’t offer it with its default keyboard in iOS 11. Besides being able to type with increased speed, swipe typing is really useful for one-handed typing and texting.
While there are a variety of third-party options on the market, two of the most popular to offer swipe typing are Google’s Gboard and the Microsoft owned SwiftKey.
How to use swipe typing on iPhone
- Choose an iOS keyboard app that supports swipe typing and download it from the App Store
- Next open Settings, swipe down if needed and tap on Keyboard
- Tap Keyboards at the top and then select Add New Keyboard.
- Now tap the keyboard in the list below that you just downloaded
Now Gboard, or whichever third-party keyboard you’ve decided on will show up in the list of active keyboards and is ready to use.Read more..
