Swype, the swipe-to-type Android keyboard is now finally out of Beta and is now available on Google Play store for $0.99.

Although Swype has been available for quite some time now (since 2010 to be exact), the app hasn’t dropped the beta status until now. The app which was mainly packaged with handsets from various manufacturers such as Samsung and Nokia will now be offered on Google Play in two versions.

There will be a free trial version that will expire after 30 days and a paid version that will of course work indefinitely. At present, the app will only cost $0.99 but it might just be an “introductory” offer and prices may soon go up after a few weeks. Also, the company says that the two versions of the app will soon be rolled into one and will allow for in-app purchases in future releases.

Moreover, the app will also add three new features that were only available before to beta users. These include Living language which automatically detects a user’s location and adds local words to its dictionary, Smart touch which automatically adjusts unwanted key presses and tunes the apps predictive texting and Smart Editor which analyses full sentences entered by a user and uses this information to recommend correction when needed.
