    Latest Swype Beta for Droid Problem

    I received an e-mail from Swype that the pre-September version of Swype would be deactivated and that I need to re-download and install the latest Swype Installer. So I went ahead and uninstalled both Swype and the Swype Installer from my phone. I opened my e-mail from my phone containing the link to the download site. I downloaded the Swype Installer and logged in to download the actual app, but I get an error message that says "Swype Installer is expired. Login at beta.swype.com to get a new version."

    Does anyone else have this problem? Did anyone install the latest version successfully?

    I have had the beta Swype since it was released... I haven't gotten the e-mail you have.

    Not to be snarky, but have to tried going to beta.swype.com and logging in?

    OP, I'm in the same boat as you. All the Installer does is throw an error that it's outdated, with instructions to go download the new version—from the exact URL where I got the app to begin with. I don't know what's up, but I'm guessing they haven't updated the Swype Installer download. I'll try again every now and then and report back if/when it works.

    I did read it, but missed that key fact. No snarky-ness taken

    UPDATE... will be fixed within 24 hours

    Just received an email from Swype:

    "We are in the process of rolling out a new version right now. Looks like some of you got the new downloader before we had the new Swype package ready to go. Please be patient and you will receive an email within the next 24hrs to let you know the update is available for you! "

    Oh! No! 24hours without Swype!

    Well, I guess we just have to wait until they get things sorted out. No biggie.

    On another note, I'm thinking of trying out SlideIT.
