Update fixes problem with ICS support

Swype will be posting an update for Android users shortly. The company has Tweeted that an Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) version of its app, which offers a customizable virtual keyboard, will soon support the latest Android release. The company promises the update will fix a compatibility problem with ICS as well as adding new features.

In December, Swype had found a problem with how the app identified the screen resolution when running ICS. This kept the keyboard app from running on Galaxy Nexus smartphones. It's likely the release also will include non-beta support for Nuance's Dragon Dictation app. Nuance, the maker of voice recognition software, bought Swype in October in a deal valued at over $100 million.
