PS Vita: Swype text input method

Idea 73622 | Posted in , by | May 22, 2014

This could be an optional alternative to the existing input method. I know a lot of people are used to tapping buttons and will stick to that but anyone who has used swype knows how much faster it is.

they should do the same thing on the PS4 as well.

Yes please. The keyboard on the PS Vita is incredibly annoying to use. A Swype method of input would help immensely!

The moment I first used my Vita, I naturally attempted to use Swype input method. This would be a huge improvement!

@ Thomaticus
Yeah, thought about that, but it would be hard picking the first letter to start the swype with using the dualshock touchpad.

@ Nynja
lol, I did the same! swype should come as standard on all touch screen devices imo.

The vita needs a better keyboard period, Implement Fleksy.

It’s 2016, and still no word on this. This is a fantastic idea, especially for optimizing the keyboard, which isn’t exactly great. (Also, not HORRIBLE…) Come on Sony! The people demand Swype!!!
