    I tried to get the swype beta after I sent it to ny email when I click the link it goes to a page that says my evo is not an android device. Does it just not work for the evo?
    Make sure you have "Mobile View" checked in the settings for the internet browser.
    Should work after that.

    Anyone know how to actually close the keyboard? There's no "close the keyboard" key like the default keyboard.
    I found that holding the menu button will toggle the keyboard up and down. Well at least on the older beta trying to install the new one now

    Lol Finally got it working on the second time around. Now I go into the menu and see what version it is, only to realize i wasted all this time to get the same version I already had..... Feeling kinda cheated...

    FYI Version# 1.56.30.7625.t100 (This is the version everyone else has right?)

    I love the Swype Keyboard.... I got the Beta invite yesterday but had it on my Nexus One and put it on the EVO June 4 when I got the puppy. I signed up for the Beta thing months ago and had some what forgot I signed up until I got the e-mail yesterday. I uninstalled the "Bootleg" copy I was using so I am "OFFICIAL" now.... A heck of a lot quicker to text than individually typing... Love it...

    I got my beta invite today and it's working fine (after a couple re-installs and tweaks). Anyone know how long we will have it for??? I don't think I can go back to a regular keyboard

    Longpress on any text input field the select Input Type then select Swype. After that Swype will be your default input method.

    I can't seem to get the double tap correction to work. It highlights the word, but a box doesn't come up. Anyone else having this issue, or maybe there's some setting I need to change? Loving Swype so far... EVO

    @Hockey.... Sign up for the Beta and then go over to XDA developers website and you can find links... Just make sure you download the 156. version and you can get it right away... I signed up for the Beta 4 months ago and just yesterday got the Beta link from Swype directly.... But I have been using Swype since the June 4 launch of the EVO and I even had it on my Nexus One.... Once I got the official beta from Swype I removed the version I downloaed from XDA and installed the true beta.... They both appear to work just the same...

    The true beta is the same as the latest at several places. Sign up now, rumor has it the signup period will only be 2 days long this time around and may not open back up for awhile if ever.

    so you think if i sign up right now, and then it closes, i will still be able to download?

    Yes the download is always there. You just need an active beta login to get it.

    I apologize..... Not trying to be a "Pirate" I signed up for the Beta a good 3+ months ago... I also would have had no problem at all actually paying for the Swype keyboard.. By not getting it out darn beta forces people to resort to other methods to get it.... I actually didn't go hunting for it.... Just read in another thread here to just Google XDA and Swype Keyboard for Android....

    I used it on another handset and just loved it....

    Again SORRY!!! Don't want to offend any one....

    Also fairly new to Android and actually having the option to install different things.... 2 year iPhone user who just got overly excited....

    Never "Jail Broke" my iPhone... I guess that is also one of the downsides of an open operating system....
