This app brings its users a unique on-screen keyboard that allows for typing quite literally without lifting a finger, and it packs plenty of features to make it a highly functional text input system.

Fine-Tune Your Typing Experience

Swipe Type is a very lightweight app, weighing in at just 8.3 MB, to ensure its smooth functioning. The input is customizable so I'd suggest playing around with it so you can find the sweet spot in typing speed and effect.

A predictive dictionary in tandem with the auto-correct function will scoop up any errors you make while a Character Count shows you the number of words you've typed.

Walk & Talk

Clipboard capabilities are integrated so you can easily copy and paste text into other apps. To make life even easier, developers have thoughtfully picked out the most-used text-input apps so that users can quickly open up the typed text within messaging systems such as WhatsApp, iMessage, Facebook, Text Messages and Mail.

One of the coolest features of this app is the ability to have a transparent background while you are typing. This makes it very easy for users to type while they are walking, so you can send off emails or quickly jot down ideas while on the go.
