Thread: Swyping Up No Longer Capitalises Since Recent Swype Update in iOS

    Question Swyping Up No Longer Capitalises Since Recent Swype Update in iOS

    I'm using Swype on an iPhone 5 running iOS 9.0.2 and the most recent Swype keyboard update ver: 1.6.3873. Since updating to the most recent version Swyping up above the keyboard no longer produces a capital letter. Has anyone else been experiencing this issue?

    I just noticed this too, after the most recent Swype update.

    Unhappy Apparently this was intentional

    I received the following E-Mail from Swype support earlier today:

    Swype has predictability feature which does the capitalization for you if need be and you can always use the shift key to capitalize.

    Let us know if you have more questions.

    I for one think this is a very unfortunate feature removal, I used the capitalization gesture constantly, as I'm sure many others have. Even if they want to disable this feature by default, they shouldn't just completely remove it from the product.

    I agree completely. Lack of capitalization on the fly is one of my biggest gripes, having moved from android to ios. I'm particularly disappointed that you can't swipe up on a word after the fact to get choice of all caps, first letter cap, or lower case. But even the basic "swipe above keyboard to capitalize 1st letter" feature is critical for me. Ugh. Swype is just getting worse relative to other alternatives. I use it still, b/c it's still marginally better, but it's nowhere near as compelling as it was vs. the competition.

    Even if it's confusing to some, how is disabling it helping anyone? If your confused, you won't or can't use it, if your not confused, go to town.?.

    Me personally, I have never been able to figure out how to make it work but I'm all for letting others enjoy. Lol
