TouchPal is the first keyboard that supports swipe (or slide) typing to offer a video demo working on iOS 8. The demo shows swipe typing in action on an iPhone running an early iOS 8 beta.
It’s hard to gauge how well this TouchPal keyboard will work compared to other leading swipe keyboards just from a demo, but it’s great to see another company pushing ahead with support for this feature. TouchPal joins Swype, SwiftKey, and Fleksy on the list of 3rd party keyboards already in the works for iOS 8.
TouchPal have told Apple Insider that they’ll be making their keyboard available to test for some iOS 8 beta users ‘in coming weeks’. I’m going to need to jump in on one of the iOS 8 betas soon.
