Swipe keyboard coming with Windows Phone 8.1 Thanks to a new report, we have video proof that Microsoft's upcoming Windows Phone 8.1 software will bring a swipe keyboard to the platform.
Android fans will be familiar with keyboard, which allows users to swipe their fingers across the keyboard to easier type. Additionally, the keyboard adds better word prediction.

The most popular keyboards are SwifyKey and Swype, both of which have premium apps.

Windows Phone already uses 'Word Flow' for suggestion and prediction, so Swype/SwiftKey would be a nice addition to the operating system.
