I have used Swype for years, I don't even know how many, but likely well over 5 years. I loved it ever since I started using it, but something has changed in the last year or so since I updated my version. The dictionary has been inundated with non-words, yet frustratingly I have to add in actual words, like "tropic," "gusts," and, "indubitably."
To be clear, I don't care about adding words, but the prevalence of non-words makes swyping highly inconvenient and frustrating. Not to be snippy, but do you even use this keyboard yourselves? Because, you would certainly have noticed this long ago.
I got a new phone months ago, so had to re-download Swype and lost my progress with deleted words, but I've been deleting ever since, and I type a LOT. If I see a word that brings up multiple ridiculous suggestions, I'll keep typing it and deleting until they're all gone. Yet still my dictionary is infested. For example, as I've typed thus far, any ridiculous suggestion that came up, I copied below:
Ling tem Tenn Dixon's jibe Jove userid Inouye Kant Pirelli poder ity Sondheim Jax tbd Uttar yat y'at UAE Ulster bab Baan Yeager Epps Gifford Cree Tyner Pendleton mot Mott Bessie Todd's Lin Linn Lomb Locke Fossella ama Briggs Mollie Molly's Kell Kel Kiel Lyell Anand Unger Unum wud yurt dil Rossville Dar Roddick Dodson
Perhaps looking at this list you can see my progress through this post, perhaps you cannot. I did not intentionally capitalize anything, which means most of those are names. Names I've never heard of and will never use.
Also, importantly, I have "Living Language" turned off, so I am not having weird words added from social media.
I have tried other keyboards but even aside from this major problem I do still prefer the fluidity of Swype.
Perhaps you can add a feature of "Basic Dictionary" just featuring normal words, that users will then simply add words, names, and acronyms they frequently use?
Please consider this input, the dictionary spam is killing me, and I'm sure I'm not alone. I look forward to positive changes!
