Recommended Posts

Swype is reqruiting beta-testers for a limited beta. Hurry over to http://beta.swype.com/

Unfortunately it's just US English and Spanish at the moment, but more languages will be added.

Wish English was my first language now, yes.

Yep, but this is a link to a beta programme initiated by swype inc, and the link I give is to their own website, and their own beta programme. I would think they'd want as many serious beta testers as possible. I cannot see that this in any way breaches the rules set out in the sticky you link to.

This referred to the unofficial versions that had been available on the web.

This is an invitation from Swype themselve.

Have been using for about 12hrs now, "SUPERB" great error correction, suits my clumsy thumbs

I've been using this since yesterday. And it's great, but there's one little problem: making slight changes to your phone will stop it working.

I'm using VillainROM 3.2, and a fix for the DMAgent bug was released. I applied this fix, and when my phone had started up again, Swype popped up saying something like it was installed on a different device and now will work with limited functionality. Later, I updated my Amon RA recovery and again, this broke Swype.

In both cases, I had to reinstall the program. This is quite irritating, and given how much I like to customise my phone, this could well put me off using it long term.

Happened with me too ... I even installed the MMS fix, which is just an apk file. As soon as I restarted the phone, I got that message and had to reinstall swype.

One thing I wish was there, the pressed letter pop-up, just like the HTC keyboard. This way you know exactly what u pressed. Better than just the flashing that happens.

Thanks for the link.

Swype is amazing, very quick and the error correction is the best I have seen.

+1

Before this HTC IME was my keyboard of choice, but this is just awesome.

Simply use the Titanium Backup application and restore, when Swype pops that error. Works for me.

when in portrait mode, can it be switched to a phone keypad instead of full QWERTY? QWERTY in portrait has never made sense to me

hmmm i have a strange problem that i cant seem to find the answer too... my swype keyboard is stupidly un accurate. i cant type anything if i try to type "you" i get "rut" if i try to delete a letter i get "h" if i press "f" i get "d" and so on. ive tried re calibrating my keyboard and the stock one works perfect i just dont see whats going wrong with swype. Even the tutorial in swype does it (the animation showing you what to do) its like the keyboard is out of line with the swype line.

anybody had this? anyone know a fix? its really annoying me.

im on rooted 3.1 htc hero btw
