View Full Version : Is Swype using the Network to look-up words

I have noticed others complaining about battery drain after installing Swype. I have the latest beta on Android (Droid Incredible running Froyo). I notice that Swype is quite adept at determining words that wouldn't normally be in your dictionary... such as Wordpress... (for example when in Android Market, or doing a Google search). So I was wondering if anyone could tell me if Swype actually uses your internet connection to look up words as you Swype to make matches... I know it will learn if you tap+space a word... but I had never tapped in Wordpress and it got it with no problem the first time. Any thoughts? I ask because i seem to barely get 1 day from my battery now, and I had been able to get about 1.5 before.
