Default [MOD][XPOSED] SwypeTweaks v1.3.0 [26 June, 14]

Introduction:

Swype is an amazing IME, and it has been my favorite for a long time. However, it has some faults. The biggest annoyance is voice dictation: Dragon is forced on you and there is no good way to use Google's superior voice recognition.

This module opens the Google voice typing input when you hit the voice button. It should act just like any other keyboard that has a voice button.

There are also other tweaks, such as the ability to change some of the colors, such as the trace color.

Download:

SwypeTweaks at repo.xposed.info

This app requires Xposed.

You also need Google Voice Search installed.

Issues:

None that I know of, currently.

What's Next:

I can only really work on this during weekends, so updates won't be extremely fast, but I'll do my best.

Here are the next features I'm attempting, in order:
  1. See if I can get OEM versions to work. (Done)
  2. Launch iWnn emoji keyboard (long press enter key) (Done)
  3. Add a settings activity to enable/disable different options. (Done)
  4. Trace color change (moved up in priority due to popularity) (Done)
  5. Never show the smiley button, always show the Enter button instead.
  6. Other visual changes. Get rid of all orange (In progress.)

Features I am considering and investigating:
  • Remap other keys.
  • Lower long-press delay below current minimum
  • Remove wake lock (not sure if possible or what side effects would be)
  • Customize gestures
  • Pop up a toast message/notification when a gesture is used.
  • Layout changes. This is likely to be too difficult.

Special thanks:

rovo89 for the Xposed Framework and also for helping me in the framework thread.
alaskajoel for the great idea and for testing


Changelog:

 


1.3.0
  • More color customization
  • Color pickers for changing color
  • Show microphone key instead of Dragon Flame when the replacement is enabled
  • Better performance for trace color change

1.2.0
  • You can now change the trace color
  • Long pressing enter can change between keyboards
  • Better error handling

1.1.0
  • This should now work with all recent versions of Swype (OEM, both Play Store versions, etc.) I changed the mechanism of how it launches Google Voice Recognition, so please let me know if this causes any problems. It should act exactly the same.
  • Added an option to launch the iWnn emoji keyboard when long pressing the Enter key (assuming iWnn is installed.)
  • Added settings activity to enable/disable features (more are planned.)

1.0.1 - Very minor update to allow this to work with the trial version of Swype.
Also added better logging for support.

1.0 - Initial release

I have been waiting for a mod like this for ages. I love the Swype keyboard but hate the Dragon speech it comes with. This....I give you a thousand thanks for this mod. Its working perfectly.

My device is a Note 2, I am on Conch Republic Edition ROM and I am using the Google Play version of Swype..I actually deleted the built in Swype using root explorer so havent even tested on that version.

I have updated the 1st post to include a link to the Xposed repo: http://repo.xposed.info/module/com.d...ed.swypetweaks

Thanks for posting which phones it worked on. That helps me a lot. For the Galaxy Note 2 devices, were either of you using the included version of Swype, or were you using the Google Play version?

I didn't realize Swype was even still running a beta. I'll see if I can join it and see what's up.
