Swype clone Sliding Keyboard updated to v 1.8

In Windows Phone 7 you can not replace the standard keyboard, making Swype a non-starter. InvokeIT’s Sliding Keyboard provides somewhat of an alternative to addicts, and version 1.8 of the software should reach Marketplace soon.

New in the latest versions is support for copy and paste, better auto-correct, faster performance using a frequency-based word list and also the ability to translate entered text.  There is also more extensive language support, including:

  • American English
  • British English
  • Catalan
  • Spanish
  • French
  • German
  • Italian
  • Polish
  • Hungarian

The app is $0.99 and can be found in Marketplace here.
