    Right now Swype is in beta trial only. Many people love it, I myself could not get use to it but I will admit I'm in the minority.

    It's not available right now and if someone has an .apk file do not post it. Droid Forums does not allow .apk of trial beta's to be posted. If such a file is posted an infraction will follow.

    I thought Swype was part of the Droid X delivered apps.

    Long press in any box you would type text into... input method box should come up, choose swype.

    I don't think so. I don't have an X but as I said earlier it is under beta controlled release. If you have it on your X I'm pretty sure you had to have downloaded it.

    <3 Swype. I think that's half the reason I got the X. No more hunting around for valid beta versions of Swype for the D1! dancedroid

    It did not take too long to get used to. Funny thing, one of the reasons the x appealed to me was the wide keyboard in landscape mode. With swype,i find it to be much easier to swype in portrait mode. Typing is easier in landscape mode. Also funny: swyping while not looking at the screen is MUCH easier than typing on a touchscreen.

    Yep. Already loaded. Love the swype! I've found you don't even have to be perfectly accurate with it. Just throw your fingers around the keyboard near the letters you need and it figures it. And once you know the keyboard pretty well it's pretty quick too. I recommend going through the tutorial. Gives a few tricks that I found useful.

    I've noticed that when doing the swype motion to get to the arrow keys that most of the lettering is still black on top of the black keyboard making it very difficult to see. Any plans to fix this?

    I dont remembering having that issue, ever. And I'm not sure I understand completely. Its been a while since I've used the swype that came with it. Anyway you can get a screenshot while your doing it? This is what mine looks like.

    Edit: Picture removed to save room:)

    I actually don't know how to take a screen shot. What I'm taking about though is when you swype from the bottom left button with the pointing finger to the sym key. It takes you to another keyboard with arrow keys.
