Swype is brilliant. But I don't use it. Why? Because the word options presented to me are ridiculous. The dictionary is huge which is great but with so little intelligence applied. Why it should think I mean some obscure scrabble-scoring word instead of a simple "common" word is because it does not look at context.

Combine the swyping entry method with something like Swiftkey's contextual "guessing" and the product would be a world beater.

That and the ability to edit the dictionary properly and manage the hidden word popup better...

I agree 100% ... I really hope to see this implemented at some point

true, some of the words here are, what? there are ones I would NEVER use. then there are just silly ones where I'm not even sure what language they are in.
