    Default Does anyone know of a sliding (swype) keyboard that doesn't need full access?

    I want something like SwiftKey that doesn't demand internet access. I don't want it syncing to the internet or anything, so I don't need that. Most of the keyboards say they need full access to allow swyping. I don't know why they'd need that, as they should be able to download the predictiveness without web access. Can anyone make a suggestion to one of these keyboards? I don't mind paying for the keyboard either.

    Don't think one exists. I use word flow, but that also requires full access.

    Your only hope is the almighty, all knowing grand wizards @ Apple deciding that a swipe style feature for the stock keyboard is useful enough to bestow upon us. Even then, I bet it'll need internet access.

    Nothing wrong with full access.

    Nothing wrong with it *for you*. I've listed what I have wrong with it, so thanks for providing your reasoning.

    On a side note, OG Swype for $0.99 does it as I'm using it now.
