    go into astro, then goto the download folder select "Droid.Swype.Beta.5612" then "open app manager" than "launch" and after that goto "settings" then "language and keyboard settings" and select swype and you should be able to swype like crazy


    i hope that helps

    Yes I did. I just downloaded it my computer and moved it over from there, and now it works perfectly.

    Thanks!

    umm wtf? swype isn't free... and a moderator POSTED in the thread too? oh i get it, it's ok to pirate it because it only costs a couple of dollars. now if it was a 60 dollar xbox game it would be a different story, right?

    right?

    Oh, so because it's a beta it's free. I get it.

    Thanks very much for contacting us. No, their activity is absolutely not legal. We’ve been aware of this sort of thing for a while, and have emailed countless moderators, but we’re a small company and so it’s hard to stay on top of it all. We really appreciate you bringing this to our attention.
