    Does Windows 10 offer the WordFlow keyboard found in Windows Phone 8.1? There were reports last year that Microsoft would bring this feature to W10, but I've heard nothing recently. This would be a great addition for smaller tablets.

    Not yet. I hope that this is still to come. The touch keyboard does have predictive text like WP8.1 which is very nice, but I do find myself longing for swipe on my Surface 3.

    The main reason why I'm using an Android tablet, rather than a Windows tablet is because typing on a Windows tablet is too much of a chore without WordFlow or SwiftKey.

    At some point I'll have to see if there's already a User Voice suggestion I can vote for. Just bring my entire WP keyboard over to W10, including my custom dictionary, all tied to my account. And how about text expansion while we're at it so I can just type a short code that becomes my email address or some other frequently entered text string. Speaking of which, why doesn't the custom dictionary support the @ sign so we can add email addresses?

    I was hoping it would be in as well, was kinda shocked when I tried swiping and it didn't work.

    They've made some nice improvements to the touch keyboard for Windows 10 versus 8.1, namely the wider keys, slightly better arrangement, and better location for autocorrection and just plain better autocorrection.

    But it definitely could use the wordflow/swype type of action.

    Windows 10 is just so buggy at this point. I know the updates are coming fast and soon but it's still painful at this point.

    So I finally made it over to User Voice and found there's already a suggestion for this. If you're interested please add your vote:

    I found Swype on my Nokia phone many years ago and now love it on my latest Lumia.
    I just got the Surface Book that I'm very happy with (always a MS fan...) but I cant believe it came without WordFlow/Swype.
    I'm checking all the news on the upcoming Anniversary Update, hoping to find something about it there...COME ON MICROSOFT!!!!!!! DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT !

    Are you guys not currently using TouchPal TouchPal Keyboard - Best emoji keyboard with smileys and themes ? It's been around for a few years for windows 8 and is evolving. It's worth a go! Also Microsoft just bought Swiftkey who produce one of the best swiping keyboards for Android, so there is hope yet.

    I used to use TouchPal and loved it before all the Ads, and heck I'd take those even now on a Windows 10 device but alas there isn't an option for any Swyping style keyboard out there still...ugh.

    Windows has the feature to swipe on the keyboard if you choose the small mobile Version as the on-screen keyboard
