    Default Official Swype Beta Available

    The official Swype beta is available for download from their site. Works wonderfully on my Milestone.

    I got in andI'm seriously pleased. This is considerably improved o over the leak and is working quite nicely. I'd recently went using smart keyboard as the whacky things swype was doing were driving a bit crazy, haha. Pretty happy right now, they've really dialed it in.

    Works a lot better than the latest release, 2/18 I think it was.

    I'm really happy Swype did this. I love using Swype and to have an officially provided and up-to-date version has improved things a lot for me.

    My opinion of Swype is improving.
    Google didn't license "Droid" from Lucasarts, which makes the Moto Droid better than Nexus One.......

    I agree. And it's nice how you don't have to click the space bar after every time you swype a word.

    I like SlideIt Better, because of where the other words show instead on the annoying popup.

    This is the first time I've tried anything like this and I find it very easy. It feels really polished.

    Let's hope the amount of memory used doesn't reach the 12mb that the leaked version did. That was one of the reason I removed it.

    It definitely looks a lot more polished than the leaked version, and typing is a lot smoother, which is shiny! But every time I switch my input method to Swype on my N1, it gives me a popup saying that it's not configured to work properly on my device and won't have full functionality...and then the actual swyping/swiping doesn't work! I've uninstalled and reinstalled and that didn't help....maybe it's just me, though?

    I'm using Swype on my Eris and while I liked the leaked version, even though it would FC fairly frequently, I really like the beta. It is a lot more polished, fluid and more reliable. The couple of hours I went without Swype and had to use the HTC keyboard made me realize how reliant I had become on Swype!

    FYI, I installed SlideIt but my phone would never recognize it, even though I had selected it like I did Swype. Needless to say, I'm sticking with Swype!

    Question Swype Beta Problem

    My droid froze, so I took out the battery and restarted the phone, when it came on a popup came up that said "Open of EnglishUS failed!" Has anyone else who downloaded the new swype beta had this problem? I did switch from the unofficial swype release to the new beta, but its worked for a few days before today.

    I suggest you make sure you uninstall the leaked version before you install the new beta.

    Not a problem specifically like that, but I did have a problem when I restarted the phone that it would pop open a window saying "this product is registered on another device, and therefore will work with limited functionality...etc". I was running DroidMod at the time I believe, and this would come up each time I restarted the phone. Had to uninstall and reinstall to get it to work.

    My solution? Went to UltimateDroid, who includes a hacked version with it. I don't use it much, I much prefer Smart Keyboard over it.

    I am having trouble uninstalling the Leaked Version. I dont see it anywhere in my applications list when I get to it. Is there any way to uninstall manuall using Astro or something?

    I just installed the beta, and it's working great. Although when I did a ROM upgrade it makes me reinstall each time (says it wasn't meant for this device). No biggie.

    Menu - Applications
    If you don't see hit hit MENU again from in the applications sub-menu and select FILTERS and change it to ALL.

    See if that helps.

    I was forced into trying SlideIt because the Beta was giving me phone format errors, and I actually like it too. I'm not sure if it's better or worse yet but I have not had a problem to this point, and it does have a better listing system for word replacements and the keyboard seems like it's better spaced as well.
