Questions and Answers

I have no "Swype" option on my Galaxy S5?

A friend of mine (who also has a Galaxy S5) suggested I use Swype. I saw her use it, and I would like to use it, too. But when I looked up how to set it up on my phone, it says: 'From the list of options, tap on "Swype" to change your keyboard into Swype.' But I checked, and my phone doesn't offer Swype as an option. Do I download it somewhere? thanks.

Yes, you will have to download Swype from the Google Play Store. Click this link on your Android phone to download Swype to your Samsung Galaxy S5. Once you've downloaded Swype, open your keyboard and hold the space bar. A Choose input method window will appear; select Swype, and you'll be able to use Swype as your main keyboard.

Swype is not an installation that is automatically downloaded to any Android device. To access Swype you need to download it first. If you follow the steps in the article Setup and Use Swype on Samsung Galaxy S5 you will then be able to access the Swype keyboard and use it.
