    Ok now I know this may sound crazy but..... I have searched and searched and can NOT find Swype in the market. I have even searched AppBrain. How can I find it?

    Swype is not in the market. It comes pre-installed on some phones. Others need to try to get into the Swype beta to get it. Try signing up on their website. There are similar keyboards (such as ShapeWriter) in the market.

    Not crazy at all. It's either delivered on your device or in beta. If you're looking for the beta head to http://beta.swype.com

    I'm still waiting to get the beta myself. It's really the only way to get it short of buying a new phone.

    I just registered today, and got it installed today... I had an older version of swype (I didn't get it in the Beta, I got it from someone's website), I liked it, but man, was it SLOW at times... Yesterday, I got a message sayin it expired... I went to their site today, registered, and am up and running already. This version seems SSSOOO Much better than the last one I had...
    and the install, went without any hitches...

    Actually it's still a closed beta as you have to sign up to get the apk.
    No posting of the APK is allowed.

    Yes, but at least for now, everyone who signs up is getting the invite. It is not clear whether this is going to continue, or is just a holiday treat, so sign up now if you aren't already.

    That is the coolest keyboard ever!

    You wouldn't be able to use the apk without signing up anyway because you have to login to activate it.

    Got it finally...its kinda cool, but I like my themed keyboard better. On the upside its really clean, on the downside, I feel like I text faster using my themed keyboard instead of waiting for Swype to catch up.
