    Links/threads on obtaining SWYPE are ILLEGAL.

    These types of threads will be deleted and infractions will be levied to members posting links to the application.

    The distrbution of Swype except from the Developers themselves is ILLEGAL.

    IT is against our policy here at DF to allow posts, links or even mentions of how to obtain applications not intended for public use. This includes PAID and FREE.

    DF's is a staunch supporter of the developer community and we take things of this nature very seriously.

    We rely on our members to help police the forums and report threads that have been deemed inappropriate and/or against forum guidelines so please report them.

    Thanks everyone

    Good. Yea, we should report any threads with illegal links.

    Glad because I was saddened when a sweet pot-leaf based live wallpaper I made got deleted because of being not "family friendly" while I saw plenty of threads with resigned Swype APK's still up from weeks ago... meow.

    Not to be sounding like a smart a$$, but what is the difference in posting a link to an app, whether free or a paid app, and posting that you should, and instructions to unrooting your driod prior to swapping your broke phone for a replacement. Because they both break down to stealing which is an illeagal activity.
    Don't do anything you will have to explain to the Paramedics!

    Their beta program is available to a limited group and it is NOT meant for public distribution.

    The people that signed up for the beta testing are under a legal agreement to not distribute the application. There are reasons for this.

    So we will support the Developer by not allowing leaked betas NOT intended for public use to be posted here.

    Thanks Cereal. I think the community needed another reiteration of this.

    Rooting and unrooting are both not illegal in any sense of the word. Posting links to free apps that are in the market is not illegal. Posting links to free apps that are given to certain users under the pretense that they will not redistribute it is illegal.

    Edit: If anyone from swype reads this thread, PLEASE ADD A SPEECH TO TEXT BUTTON. That is all

    doesn't that totally defeat the purpose of Swype? : )

    Plus you already have that.
