If we enable Glide typing on the Android smartphone, we can enter words by simply sliding over the keyboard. The basic settings, such as auto-correction or word suggestions, remain unaffected.
We also have other options that can be turned on or off:

  • Show gesture trail
  • Enable gesture delete
  • Enable gesture cursor control

Note: Text input by tapping the keys is still possible.
