    is pleased to offer an update to our Beta for Android!
    I just got this email from swype. apparently it IS still beta for android!



    First, we would like to extend our thanks for taking part in the Swype Beta. Your participation has helped us improve Swype and we hope you’ll continue to provide us with your insights and feedback.
    Second, we are happy to announce that we've updated our beta software with several bug fixes and features. As such we’d like to invite you to download a new installer and put a new version of Swype on your handset to take advantage of the many improvements. The current version expires in the next couple days, so please do download the new version!

    Sign-up for the Beta Program - Swype | Text Input for Screens

    Users who aren’t in the beta program yet won’t be able to install Swype Beta as you have to download an installer, log-in then download swpye itself.


    Once you’ve installed the beta, enjoy it! Please report any issues you encounter on our forums. So we can troubleshoot more effectively, when reporting issues please include as much of the following information as possible:
    Phone Make/Model
    Android OS (or ROM) version
    Swype version
    What behavior did you expect to see?
    What behavior did you actually see?
    Did you uninstall Swype and the SwypeInstaller first?
    Is the device rooted?

    You are also welcome to send email to androidbeta@swype.com with additional feedback or questions. We are happy to get emails and will answer questions as soon as we can, but please remember to also check our forums for answers!
    Thanks again for your help and support,
    -The Swype Team
    --Changes in this version of Swype--


    • Added better context sensitivity for the “magic button” (go/search/enter/smiley)
    • Added automatic apostrophe insertion for contractions (e.g. won't, don't, wasn't, etc)
    • Added the Italian language dictionary
    • Improved sensing of field type to prevent the display and addition of passwords to the UDB (user dictionary)
    • Improved suppression of auto-spacing in fields such as URLs and email addresses
    • Updated the built-in dictionary to include several common words that were previously missing
    • Rewrote some settings descriptions to be more clear on their functionality
    • Fixed licensing issue causing “Limited Functionality” errors when rebooting devices running Android 2.0 and later
    • Fixed licensing issue causing some users to receive an “Incorrect ID” error when installing Swype
    • Fixed a bug where manually typing some words with word-prediction enabled would cause Swype to crash
    • Fixed a bug which caused some words added to the UDB to erroneously override other words when word-prediction is enabled
    • Many other minor bug fixes!

    Long press the text box > Switch to another keyboard > then switch back.

    That generally solves that problem.

    In other news, with all respect to the mod, but I thought DF wasn't allowing the download of swype to non-beta users. Correct me if I'm wrong...

    Another mod pm'd me about it and I told him to feel free to delete. I have no control of this section. I didn't realize there were "opened" and "closed" beta versions.

    I downloaded it and it requires a beta email/password login. So, that solves that :icon_ banana:

    It won't let me swype either. Everyone with the old swype, see if your version number is the same as the one shown in the pic I attached

    I edited the OP to include the link to sign-up for the Beta.
    A download link for one will not work for another.

    I think you need to register. When I first got swype it was an apk. I think everyone is going to have expired swypes again soon

    I'm running BB v 1.1. What ROM are you currently running? I just restored my old version of swype through titanium and deleted the new version until this gets corrected or whatever.

    Same here. A couple of points for those reading this thread.

    () Unless you are already signed up for the existing beta program on the Swype website, you cannot get the new version of the beta. (7625). They did not re-open the beta program for this update. It is available only to those who already are in the program.

    () If you are eligible, be sure to follow the directions in your email to a "T." Uninstall BOTH your existing version of Swype AND the Swype Installer app. The latter can be uninstalled only by Filter:All in ManageApps.

    () Cannot speak to problems anyone is having with a custom ROM. I'd think, however, that if you were running a legal version of the Swype beta before, you should be able to download the new version.

    () Cannot speak to anyone running Froyo 2.2. That might be problematic.

    Edit: Someone else has reported that the new version of Swype works fine on Froyo (2.2)

    Followed all the direction for installation, i'm getting the message: "The swype package you have instlled is configured for another device and will operate with limited functionality."

    It also says to contact swype about the issue. Sending them an email now. (this took forever to type w/out swype btw)
