Here's another thread about it as well.

I'm really enjoying the newest version, well worth the .99 I shelled out.
I've added it to my Tab 10.1 and Nexus7 and they've fixed a bunch of bugs that plagued larger screens and added both shrink&move and split keyboard to the Nexus7 for both landscape and portrait modes.

What about for those whose phones have Swype built-in (i.e. Droid RAZR/MAXX for example)? Is there any advantage to the paid version above?

Assuming it would work, you'd be more likely to get updates. Currently I'm using Swype Beta.

I've been using the Swype Beta for a long time and for 99 cents this version is a million times better! Glad I grabbed it!dancedroid

The oem is embedded like the stock keyboard so no updates except os updates from the device manufacturers. I froze out my oem on my Tab when it upgraded to ICS and went with the beta version only.
According to the faq on the Swype forum, beta will still be supported and updated for those that don't mind a couple of bugs and being beta testers in exchange for it being free.

I did see that the one for 99 cents is called Swype + Dragon so it'll be separate from the OEM Swype. I've installed it and will give it a try.

I had the beta installed along with the built in Swype. I bought it first thing this morning. It works flawlessly and is bug free compared to the beta. They all work fine still, and the 99 cent version is much better than the factory. I think you should jump on this. It won't be 99 forever and getting locked in now is a good idea I think.

The beta was absolutely atrocious on every device I've used. The OEM versions were much more stable but much more limited. I'm glad they released the real full version to the rest of the world.

How does this compare to SwiftKey with SwiftKey flow?
This is what I'm wondering? Swiftkey always had much better predictions and the 'flow' is as good as any of the Swype beta's I used for ever on my TB. I was part of the initial beta and after a year of testing when they decided they would 'only be OEM' and not go the app route I left... unless someone has some amazing reviews compared to Swiftkey Flow it's to little to late...

I too would like more info on this. If you get the app, would you need to somehow disable the native Swype and how would you do it. Is the app better?

Night/day for me. Flow does well for me in predicting but it's accuracy, unless I slide very slow and methodical, is very inaccurate. I also prefer the plethora of suggested alternatives on Swype vs none on Flow unless I back space. Gestures, again for me, are a must have (look under gestures in settings for what is supported and how to use specific ones). The newest version of Swype has made a huge leap in next word prediction.
There's a free trial version should you want to compare for yourself.
