    Seriously, how did you manage to create such a poor dictionary? I think it would be better to compile a new one rather than fixing this mess.
    I paid for a worse dictionary than the beta version and I'm waiting for an update some months now but it seems to be not important enough.

    (Leute, zählt bitte weitere Wörter auf, damit sich endlich etwas tut! Ich werde versuchen die Liste dann zu aktualisieren.)

    Just one very typical missing word:



    What makes Swype slower than a bigger dictionary is the encryption of it, so the user cannot decompile or recompile own words or an own dictionary into Swype.

    Must be a good deal, this selling of private data and user profiles.

    Funny thing is that all that words (except "damn(ed)") are included in the English dictionary so it really is a German dictionary issue.
    I understand that English is more important than other languages for Swype but I don't see why the dictionary got worse since beta.

    The dictionary is really poor!
    I guess they should buy a new set from duden(.de) which is one of the most credible sources in Germany.

    Just checked the dictionary after the update. Still no changes!
    By the way if you remove dictionaries and download them again then you will lose all your (added) words. Really great feature!

    Swype vs. SwiftKey

    I don't see any progress here so I switched to SwiftKey for now. It is interesting that Swype has a worse german dictionary but takes up twice as much space:



    SwiftKey with 3 languages: 19 MB
    Swype with same languages: 45 MB

    Did you count the data in this following folder too?

    /data/data/com.sec.android.inputmethod/SwiftKey

    I delete the big Chinese subfolder and many others too, after each SwiftKey update.

    Hey all,

    Lustig, thanks for breaking this out into a separate thread. Our linguists are reviewing your list!

    Uninstalling a language by itself should not affect your added words. Were previously added words still Swypeable?

    Thanks

    I can't find that folder.

    I really appreciate your update on this but I'm also concerned that my list isn't complete so there will be still many other errors. I hope that the linguists don't just review my small list. You can't let your customers complete your flawed dictionary! It would be enough if there were some small glitches but the German dictionary has too many of them.

    It was my mistake since I only noticed the empty "My Dictionary" list after deleting the German dictionary. After downloading the dictionary again, my list was also back again.

    I also need to know how the dictionaries are updated. Do I have to delete and download them again manually or are they updated in the background automatically? In SwiftKey I can update them if there are updates.

    This is true, what Lustig wrote, it is not the matter of just a small list!
    The whole dictionary is much too small.
    I guess it contains about 500-1000 words only.
    The linguistics should just use a normal german dictionary than they don't need a missing word list.
