Welcome back to our weekly Top 10 Android App Updates column, where we take a look at the most frequently upgraded apps for the week. We’ve found that one of the best ways to discover useful apps is to find the ones that are actually being updated by the developers rather than selecting the apps with the most installs. As in the past, we’re going to filter out minor updates for the super-popular apps that have over 10 million installs, but we’ll make exceptions for apps that have had significant updates. We hope you enjoy this weekly feature and that you discover some apps that end up being useful.
Swype Keyboard - Version 1.9.0
What’s new in this version:
Easy number entry – tapping on keys that have numbers as secondary characters will provide a number / symbol suggestion (ex: tapping “ejqp” suggests “3:10″, “swpp” suggests “$200″)
Phrase prediction – Swype can now predict two-word phrases (ex: entering “How” could predict “are you” )
Chinese Cloud Prediction
Various crash and bug fixes (thanks for reporting!)
