    Has anyone noticed this? After I updated my phone last month or so to the latest Swype Beta v1.56.30.7625.t100, I have noticed it's been guessing wrong on a lot of words I've been entering. It used to be just about dead on, and now a lot of the time I get results that aren't even words or are words that I've used maybe twice in my life. Anyone else getting the same? I hope the final version is not like this, they had a great product but it's going downhill from here.

    That hasn't been my experience at all. For me, the newest version of the Beta is performing better than ever.

    I have noticed this as well, and going from the exact same versions you said. I still love it, but I have to correct it quite a bit more often now than I did before.

    I feel as though I am having to correct words more often as well, especially with the double letters it seems

    Yes it does seem marginally worse. Not by much though, still awesome.

    Has anyone tried clearing out the custom dictionary of unused / misspelled words?

    I've cleared the dictionary and have wiped my phone clean and still no improvements. My biggest gripe is with the double letters and "want" vs. "wasn't" - the old version did not add apostrophes if you didn't swipe over the apostrophe key, but this one seems to add them at will. Pretty annoying and it's slowing me down a lot.

    Try playing with the settings in options. A lot of settings about speed and accuracy and such.
