The company will instead focus on developing AI solutions for businesses

Nuance, developer of the once popular Swype keyboard for Android and iOS devices, quietly said earlier this month that it was discontinuing its iOS offering. The announcement flew under the radar for most but is now coming into light due to changes impacting the Android version.

In announcing the iOS version’s fate, the product team said Nuance will no longer be offering the Swype keyboard in the App Store. They apologized for leaving the direct-to-consumer keyboard business but said the change was necessary to allow them to concentrate on developing their AI solutions for sale directly to businesses.

Nothing was mentioned about the Android version in the iOS announcement.

Recently, however, a Reddit user contacted Nuance about an issue with the Android app and received the following statement over e-mail (via Tech Times):

“Nuance will no longer be updating the Swype+Dragon keyboard for Android. We're sorry to leave the direct-to-consumer keyboard business, but this change is necessary to allow us to concentrate on developing our AI solutions for sale directly to businesses. We hope you enjoyed using Swype, we sure enjoyed working with the Swype community.”

Nuance acquired Seattle-based start-up Swype in 2011 for $102.5 million in cash.

A quick check of Apple’s App Store reveals that Swype is indeed no longer offered. The keyboard remains on Google Play as of writing although I wouldn’t expect it to stick around for much longer. In other words, if you want it, I’d grab it ASAP.
