    I have used SwiftKey for a long long time on 3 different phones including any SwiftKey betas. Same with Swype.
    I also have tried almost every other keyboard available alpha, beta, free and some paid.

    SwiftKey has always been my default and now as version 4, I have updated my GS3,my Nexus 7 tablet version, wife's Incredible 2,and my old Incredible 2 I upgraded from via wifi that has no data. I also paid for extra one because I have multiple users on N7 which has separate profiles for wife and me.

    The only thing I have not done is sync it with Facebook, Gmail of SMS. The results still are incredible.

    When I type "swype keyboard" or beta into the Play Store search, nothing comes up.
    Swype is only available as beta software or OEM. You cannot update an OEM version via the beta website and the beta version will timeout and quit working at some point.

    Something to remember

    No it won't. They update it regularly and this doesn't replace the Swype on the phone, it is a newer version. They aren't taking this from anyone.

    You're incorrect.
    My POINT, if you have an OEM version the beta version will not update it. And, you may find a beta version that works well, but it will expire and be replaced by a version that no longer works on your phone. If that is the case, you cannot reload the older version unless you've backed up the apk, and Swype will not provide or support an older version. Read the forum I've been on for the last couple years and figure it out.

    Well I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. Right now I'm just using SwiftKey Flow mode because I really like the flow through space feature.

    This is what they do and they don't sell to individuals. Not worried about Swype being gone.

    I also like Flow, but not the predictive style that much. Flow is much better with the Play release, but I keep going back to Swype.

    However, the Swype beta on my Thunderbolt became unusable once they started over with release 1. I had the apk backed up and did not get the time out like others, so could continue using the older version. I think the Swype business model is stupid, but that's the price to use the beta system.

    Ive tried with both flow and swipe, seems after the update swype started working again. Im a firm believer that swype destroys flow, flow just always gets my words wrong in the predictive text. Glad that swype isnt having a problem

    My old version of swype malfunctioned so I downloaded the swype beta. It now works perfectly and I hope I won't encounter any problem again in the future. Thanks to this forum for providing me the information to address my problem.
