The Swype Feature of Your Galaxy S7

By Bill Hughes

Some Galaxy S7 phones come with an enhanced data-entering capability called Swype. This option may have been preloaded on your phone. If not, you can download it from the Google Play Store. With a little practice, it can dramatically speed your ability to type fast on your phone.

Here’s how Swype works: Instead of tapping each discrete key on the keyboard, you leave your finger on the screen and swipe from key to key. The Swype application figures out the words you’re wanting to type, including inserting the spaces automatically.

If you like Swype, you can use it anytime you’re entering data. If you don’t care for it, you can just tap your letters. It’s all up to you!
