Swype now in official beta for Android
In case any of you didn't see this already, Swype now has an official beta available for Android phones. Details:
Swype is pleased to offer an Android Beta!
Here are the details:
- Initially we will have a limited number of participants - we'll expand it soon
- In English and Spanish - more languages to come
- Limited Features - some key features of Swype require OEM integration
- HVGA and WVGA Resolutions - don't worry we'll detect this automatically
- Limited End User Support - mostly via our forum
- If your phone came pre-installed with Swype
DO NOT download this beta (it won't work)
How will this work?
You register with an email address you can access via your mobile and we send you a link to download Swype. That's it!
Started using it last night and I really like this program. Would be great if this officially becomes available for my phone type. Also, if it came out free, great!, but if not, I'll pay for it.
Bah! It's not working right for me, I shoulda stuck with the leaked version, although I saw some posts elsewhere that said their leaked version expired out. After I restart my phone I get a message saying swype is not configured for my device or something like that...and I have to type normally, swyping no longer works. I posted on their forum :cry:
There is a workaround of just switching to another touch keyboard then switching back to swype and then it works again
I bought a new MyTouch 3G with the 3.5mm jack last week and Swype came on it ... Swype was enabled by default.

When I first got my new mt3g with Swype I wasn't all that impressed with it. But of got tired of pecking at my keyboard and gave it another try. While I'm nowhere nearly as proficient as the person on the demo video, of am improving and I really prefer Swype now.
Finally a dev got it right for the nexus so I dont have that annoying popup about screen resolution and the fact that it didnt work in landscape. All is good now and im really getting good with it. i gave up the first time i tried because of the issue with it on the nexus but now its great. Just no voice input option, maybe in the final release or a dev will implement it.
Man, should have read Pinstack today! Totally missed the beta. Hopefully, they open it again, really want to give this a try!!!!
Update:Thanks BHP77, for hooking me up with the SWYPE program. I love this app! Starting to get the hang of it!!!!
