    I just downloaded this last night and have been VERY impressed!!! If you haven't gotten it for your droids yet you should asap! it makes regular typing on the virtual keyboards obsolete! easiest way to do it is to;
    1) go to your settings and then to applications and turn the "unknown sources" on (that way it lets you download/install things that aren't on the android marketplace)
    2) use your browser on your droid and go to "droidmuff.in"
    3)then click the icon at the top thats titled "downloads"
    3)click on the "swype preview" icon.... then when the page loads there will be a link that says "download" just click it and install it.
    4)go to your settings and go to "language and keyboards" and switch from whatever keyboard you're using to the "swype keyboard" also, you can do the tutorial in the swype settings

    It's not on the market place because it's not official supported for the Droid. You can get it here

    I second what everyone else has said: I love swype!

    That's because it's a beta, and not in the Marketplace.

    There are several threads on the forums about this subject. I point you to Swype on Moto Droid

    I was very skeptical about this keyboard after a bad experience on the Omnia II at verizon. As it turns out, it was just user error. Taking your advice, I downloaded this version and went through the tutorial. After understanding how to use it, this keyboard is simply AMAZING! Thank you for providing us with this link and opening my eyes.

    The tutorial is a MUST.

    Once you understand how it works the thing is godly.

    I switched over to swype keyboard a few days after getting my droid. At first it is weird and you kind of want to ditch it. Hang in there and use it and you will realize how awesome it is. So much easier swyping instead of having to press each individual letter. It is very good at detecting the word you are trying to type even if you miss a letter.
