Apple is FINALLY Looking Into Swipe Gestures for iOS

Picture from CNET.com
Having been both a iPhone and Android user on and off, as well as an avid texter, the one thing that's always bothered me about iOS is there's NO fast way to text. Of course, I haven't had the opportunity to work with Siri, but I rarely use the voice to text feature on my Android now. Luckily for iPhone users, Apple is seeing what it would take to add swipe gestures to their iOS keyboards. The only downside is that they are only talking about adding gestures to delete, add a space, hit shift, etc. Nothing like the full swipe keyboard on Android that lets you create messages and even predicts your next word. Still, it's a step in the right direction...if it's ever put into effect!
