Word swipe in PadKeys is good enough for many users and certainly better than keyboards such as the system default that don’t have it at all. It also needs to be understood it will always seem worse than other keyboards on the same device simply because the keys are smaller.
It IS relatively sensitive to the first and last keys touched, so if you hit these accurately, the results will be better.
We continue to work on improving word swipe incrementally. Please vote for this issue if it is important to you, so we can prioritize accordingly.

We have this on our TODO list, however to do it well for all of our supported languages is not a trivial task.

This makes me think of the saying, How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. I would *really* like next word prediction. I'm an English speaker, so naturally I'd love to see it as soon possible. Thanks for a good keyboard!
