    I played around with it. I went back to the original style, but I can definitely see myself using Swype from time to time as well.

    Try to find another source. I had that problems. I found it in a couple of different forums. Someone uploaded the apk file and I just downloaded it directly. I like Swype and the concept of it, but I am still practicing. So, it's quite frustrating still. I"m not nearly as fast as I am on a regular keyboard. I have been using the regular keyboard the last few days.

    I've got the Incredible Swype apk downloaded. I'm going to add it later even though I'm a bit hesitant. Not sure if I will miss the voice button or not because the only place I really use it is in the search widget.

    What do you mean?

    The voice button is still there when you use Swype. You just have to hit menu first.

    You don't need to do the tutorial either...just hit the back button when it pops up and off you go. So much misinformation.

    I'm getting better at it. You need to be able to slide your finger lightly on the keyboard with the screen protector I have.

    I bet it is hard for someone that doesn't know how to type though. You need to know where the letters are to use it. Mom forced me to take touch typing when I was a kid... perhaps the best thing I ever got out of school.

    I downloaded it last week...I thought I got it from the market but maybe I didn't.

    I no longer see it in there. Regardless, just google "Swype for Android" and there's a number of different sites that allow you to sign up for the Beta.

    If your having problems there is a good youtube video I followed that helped me. Its one that a high school looking kid did. He's pretty helpful. The thing that I had to get over is holding down on the screen to get the input settings to pop up then you choose swype undated of touch input. Voila swype is there now.I'll never type the same again!

    I tried to download swype following the instructions on the youtube video but had no luck with it. If you want a site to go to to download it directly to your phone, click the search button and type in "swype apk file". Click on the first link (the title is something like "in case you missed it..." Click the link on that page from your Incredible. Download Astro File manager from Android Market. Open the file manager and look for the swype file. open it up and click accept to all of the prompts. Next time you are in a text message, hold onto the text input box until you get a popup. It will say input method, click that and then change to swype. Hope this helps!

    I installed it, didn't really care for it - I'm just not coordinated enough for it. I type so fast on a standard keyboard that the "normal" keyboard typing is much more intuitive for me.

    Oh really I never hit the menu button. I was talking about it didn't have a mic key on the keyboard itself. When I get all charged back up I'll give it a try again. I used it but wasn't wild about it yet. I think it will take awhile to get used to it, right now I'm digging the compressed qwerty it kt9, it seems the most like suretype and as far as I can tell it's working the same as well. I had to add a few oddball words I use but after that it's working fine.

    The Swype is intriguing me though so I may give it another shot.

    It took me some time to get used to

    Usually, I type faster with the standard keyboard but since it kept lagging (hence 1.5 still) I decided to look into it

    Great...
    I'm getting a bit faster with "swyping" :o

    I downloaded Swype from here but on my Incredible I keep getting a message box whenever I rotate the phone in an email that tells me 'The Swype package you installed does not match the screen size of the device. Please cxontact Swype about this issue. Screen size: 480x800'. So I assume this is just because Swype doesn't convert to landscape mode, but is there a way to stop this message or is there a different package that works better for the Incredible?

    Goto the above link for the swype that works for the incredible. Even works in landscape. This is an awesome program! I don't think I can go back to the stock keyboard.

    Thanks! The droid version was driving me crazy with the size notification error whenever I changed to landscape.

    I tried Shapewriter today and then Swype. Swype seems the better of the two. Doing the tutorial once you have it is useful too.

    I've been using it for the last two days pretty much none stop. I went from very slow on it because of not being able to see the keys to really fast. Once you figure out you only have to be close to the letter you want you speed up a whole lot. I can bang, err swype, out a full sms or twitter message in like 10 seconds or less now. And I'm only getting faster. Wonderful app! Can't wait till it shows up in market offically, even if it's payware I'll get it. Now if they would just add a voice button on it. Someone told me to hit menu and it has an option in there for voice but mine doesn't. Maybe a beta we haven't got a hold of yet?
