I tried to write a simple text to my friend, asking whether I need to bring snacks or beer to his Superbowl party.

When I tried to Swype the simple word "beer" (tried it twice, same result), here is the list of "words" it presented me:

bet
ber
bert
bret
brewer
nger
very
net

Really?? Are "ber" and "nger" even words? The predictive algorithm is terrible, way too many incorrect words (auto add) and way too many extremely uncommon words...and lousy at recognizing the very common word "beer."
