    I used to have an android and the thing that I miss from it was swype. Man is that thing really nice to use. Is it possible to install android software on my iphone 5s or make swype work on it? If I were to install android it would have to be super easy as I am not tech savvy.

    You can't really install Android, you can however install swype via a Jailbreak Tweak

    Google should make a clandestine project out of it and Apple would go anti-matter.

    The OP wants a super easy way to install Android on an iPhone. It doesn't exist, so the closest option is to go out and buy an Android phone.

    I'd suggest the Nexus 5 and the Moto X.

    best bet is jailbreaking to get a tweak for that feature.

    You can jailbreak the latest version of iOS and install a swype-like keyboard tweak.

    You can't just install software form any OS on another OS without emulation (which comes with overhead) and that applies not just to smartphones but computers as well. Swype would have to be written for IOS.

    The JB tweak mentioned above is your best bet.

    No such thing. It may be possible but it would be a DIY thing.
