    I'm not sure if this has been posted elsewhere, but I'm really curious if anyone knows if 2.2 will include Swype for the Incredible?

    Thanks in advance for any help for a newbie!

    PS - if 2.2 won't have it, can I buy it or do I just have to sign-up and hope the beta reopens? Thanks!

    There's no indication that it will be included with it. Best bet is to sign onto the beta again.

    Thanks. I don't get it, is swype only available on the Droid X? Does anyone know if you can buy it (I've never seen it on the marketplace)?

    Swype is only available for any phone maker who licenses it for a specific model. The ones I know of are the Droid X, Droid 2 and the Galaxy S line of phones. As HTC has it's own proprietary keyboard it will probably never use Swype.

    Found the apk and got it installed but it says it's expired? :confused:

    I didn't realize that even w. the apk file, it can still block you from the beta?

    Please don't post content like this on the forums. It is against the rules.

    Wait till it is out and buy it.

    I for one have downloaded SlideIT, which I liked much better than Swype, and it works great on the Incredible. I liked it so much I upgraded from my Motorola Droid with the slide-out keyboard and went totally for the onscreen keyboard of the Incredible.

    I have Swype on my Incredible and it is awesome. Someone turned me on with the app. After couple days of using it, I've grown accustom to its style of keyboarding.

    I had Shapewriter for over a month, but I hated that the Landscape keyboard was no bigger than portrait.

    Loving Swype now.
