Many of us are familiar with Swype keyboard, mainly since it’s the best free solution for quick on screen text input, nevertheless that great software is now available to the public. In recent develop the previously privately tested keyboard is now available to anyone willing to sign up on their website. After signing up you get an email with a link to download the keyboard, and after opening it from your device, you are ready to install and enjoy the near physical keyboard like typing experience.
The new features available in this beta are as followed:
In English, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, German, and introducing French and an early, *UNSTABLE* preview release of Chinese Pinyin
Now includes support for Double-Tap-to-Edit, Cursor Restore, and Voice-to-Text (requires Google Voice Search be included in your system firmware)
HVGA, WVGA, and WVGA854 Resolutions - don't worry we'll detect this automatically. Sorry, no QVGA

So what do you guys think? Isn’t this worth the FREE price tag?
I have used Swype before and with the new integration with Voice to text, I think it is finally the best keyboard you can have on your Android device.
