Swype is a feature in most of the modern smartphones (by default) or by some external apps (Swype Keyboard, SwiftKey etc.). Starting with it, Whenever you type a word in your Smartphone the option of adding the word dictionary comes, or most of the time it automatically adds the word used to the dictionary.
Did you ever think why are those words added in the Dictionary?
Before Swype feature came in, there was one reason i.e It was used to make the words available at an ease, which would make typing easier. After Swipe feature came in action, the reason was extended, Now the words stored in the dictionary are used by the Keyboard to guess the ‘Word’ which you will be typing.

For an Example I didn’t have DroidMen in the dictionary and I try to type DroidMen in a place, it will either give me some Weird results or No results. But as soon as I add DroidMen to dictionary and not even use the Swype feature properly(Like I won’t place my fingers in all the keys still I’ll get DroidMen). Saw the video? Didn’t See? then see the video in which I have showed you using Swype feature using SwiftKey Keyboard and will express the above said things in it !
