    Dear Alpha Testers,

    Exciting news! We are about to launch SwiftKey Beta on the Android Market, and you are the first to know :)

    Please UNINSTALL your current version of SwiftKey and head over to the Market to download the official Beta -- search for "swiftkey".

    Also, have a look at our new website at SwiftKey Revolutionary text prediction for smartphones, by TouchType. We are in the process of upgrading our support framework and look forward to hearing from you soon.

    It has been a pleasure working with you during the Alpha phase. We will keep you posted on developments here at TouchType through our newsletter and please do let your friends/colleagues know about SwiftKey!

    Many thanks,

    Ben

    P.S. If you're a blogger/journalist and would like our press release it's available from our website.

    I just did both my Droid and my Wife's. It's great it's on the market now. Works great and my crashing on boot problem is gone.

    Best keyboard out there - can't imagine anyone doing better.

    I had got hooked on Swype. I am starting to like SwiftKey now. I still only see the beta version in the market.

    Pretty impressive. The context sensitive word prediction is the best I've seen. Unfortunately, it, like Swype, lacks the voice to text feature of the stock and HTC-IME keyboard. Other than that, however, it looks like a keeper and a strong competitor to Swype.

    Been using it for a few days. I have to say, I really don't like it at all. It rarely picks up the next word I'm about to say. Only reason I'm still using it is because I've been too lazy to change it back, haha. I might give it another shot down the road.

    Can someone give me an opinion on which one is better between swiftkey and shapewriter? I still have shapewriter and only want to get rid of it if swiftkey is better. Since shapewriter is off the market and hard to find, i'd like to keep it unless I know some reviews or opinions of swiftkey.

    You can have more than one keyboard installed, just install Swiftkey and form your own opinion

    Oh yea, I guess that might work too lol. I was thinking of one keyboard or the other, but this might give me time enough to compare the two. My only question is how do you activate one keyboard and turn off the other?

    long press in a text box and choose input method. Make sure to enable the keyboard in settings though.

    I can't get the market version to work for me. I enable the keyboard in the settings, but it doesn't show up in my input method selection. The pre-market version worked just fine, so I'm not really sure what's wrong.
