Is our Swype beta about to expire?
I just read a new post on the home page here about downloading the latest Swype beta. The article says that the current Swype beta is about to expire and Swype sent out emails with a link for everyone to download the latest. I didn't get no stinkin email. Is our Swyoe about to expire, or is the X not included because it's so new...maybe it shipped with the latest version?
Now that I'm used to it, I pretty sure I can no longer type on my phone.

you can do it all from your phone just downlod the dump look inside of it with a file viewer no need to extract it. then look in system/app yo should see swype. click install and it should work if it doesnt use adb to push it or root explorer to copy it their and install from that location.
btw for the last two you need root

The only downside to Swype I have found, is if you're using some type of tacky screen protector, or if it's really humid out, your finger tugs along on the screen making it really hard to enter text properly.
That of course isn't Swype's fault. But I guess it is a fact that that is how you enter text, so the smoothness of the process certainly factors in on the user experience.

Just as an FYI, the Market keyboard SlideIt is like Swype. In some ways I like it better (slightly better word prediction, easier to add words), but not enough to pay for it right now. However, that may change once both Swype and SlideIt get out of beta and we have to pay for one.
From what I've heard about Swiftkeys, a perfect fit may well be if Swype were to combine with Swiftkeys...
