    I want that keypad lol
    You have it, just turn your Droid to Landscape, same as in that pic :-)

    BTW, I got the offical Beta for my Droid and for my Wife's Eris, works MUCH better than the previous version

    Mine is not black like this
    I was talking about the one on the page he linked...



    BUT, I agree the other one pictured is VERY COOL!!!

    I got it too. A few quick observations:


    • Seems more accurate than the leaked version and some ,more frequently used words seem to be higher up the trigger list than they were in the leaked version
    • More responsive, text appears faster and more fluid
    • Auto Capitilize now works, which includes I (I wish my text input on my PC browser had this feature).


    So pretty much, all the complaints I had with the leaked version were solved within typing one sentence. Very nice app and a more stable "one-up" to the leaked version.

    If you start a sentence with "I" it will carry the auto cap over to the second word.

    I don't care as much about that as the following:

    Where is the double space = period + space?

    I tried it and cant get it to work at all, it shows my line where i've been swiping, but never inputs the text, if i just tap the word out it works. The leaked swype worked fine for me before.
    And now a Message from the Admins...

    I don't care as much about that as the following:

    Where is the double space = period + space?
    That happens for me too if I manually hit the space key after "I" but doesn't happen if I have the Auto-spacing option enabled, which I do. So with auto-spacing, I just go from one swiped word to the next and it will automatically put a space in between the words and the second word won't be auto-capped.

    As for double space = period + space, I think the Swype way of doing it is just swiping from the period key over to the space key. It's just a simple motion and it'll add the period and the space afterwards. I prefer that than having to double tap the space key.
