    Question Swype stopped swiping

    Today Swype stopped working. It'll type, but not swipe.

    I'm a member of the beta program, but I didn't see any emails about an update. The only program I've added recently is QuickDesk.

    Anyone else with it not working?

    did you try switching to a different keyboard and then back to swype? That might work.

    I've had this happen, too.

    However, since upgrading to FRF91, I've found that the fixes in the above thread don't work any more. I've had other issues with FRF91 though so I dunno.

    I got it to work by uninstalling and reinstalling.

    Very odd.

    I fixed mine! The reinstall wasn't working for me, but I found clues on Skype's website. I had to free up my memory, the SkypeInstaller app was having issues and apparently never registered the Skype keyboard software correctly. All good now!

    Advanced: I receive one of the following errors when I try to install Swype:
    • Registration of the License Failed
    • Swype is already installed. Please uninstall Swype and try again.
    • Swype is configured for another device and will operate with limited functionality.
    • You do not have the necessary permissions to install Swype or
    • The ID of this of this phone does not match your registration at beta.swype.com



    These errors are often shown when the Swype installer is terminated prematurely by the Android OS system activity manager as it tries to reclaim resources. Regardless of the cause, these steps should resolve the issue:

    • Uninstall both Swype and SwypeInstaller from your device - detailed directions here
    • Reboot your device
    • Close as many widgets from your desktop as possible
    • Download the SwypeInstaller
    • Use a task-manager to kill all non-essential running apps
      (If you are not familiar with the task-manager, you can skip this, but you may see the error again)
    • Install and run the SwypeInstaller

    Thanks to all of you for your responses.

    I ended up uninstalling the app, then went to my email from them giving me a link for the installer. I reinstalled and it seems to be working.

    Funny, at first the installation failed because I already had Swype installed. I know I had uninstalled it before I even got the installer and when I looked at the app, it had today's date. Oh well, I uninstalled it again and this time it went through.
