    Couple of questions on this- When does this Beta expire? Does anyone have any ideas on what Swype will cost after all this? I don't want to get hooked on it, and then they charge like 50 bucks for it.

    I would speculate (as others have) that Swype probably won't cost you anything as they'll most likely look to make their revenue getting paid by phone manufacturers to license and incorporate the keyboard on their devices by default.

    Most certainly, and some of us have used our votes in the Swype user forums to request such feature.

    Note to all beta users:

    Please note the purpose of "BETA" --- it is a test and the developer is seeking feedback. The developer is (in my opinion) slow to respond and does a horrible job rolling out "official" releases. Plus, the whole "closed beta" thing irritates the snot out of me. BUT, they do offer the BEST keyboard alternative, so...

    Be sure to send emails to the developer to improve the end product. I have sent several emails over 6 months of "testing". I have asked for specific words to be in the stock dictionary, improved functionality of capitalization, change speed of word suggestions coming up, color of the background, improved functionality of double letters ("all" and "good" always came up as "ask" and "god" - always).

    After 2 or 3 "official" and unofficial hacked versions (sorry, I'm a pirate) I have seen dramatic improvement - no doubt from end user feedback.

    So, let's not lose site of what this whole "closed beta" process is trying to accomplish -- SEND FEEBACK TO THE DEVELOPER!

    press the punctuation that you want and then slide it to the space bar. that will give you the punctuation and add a space.

    I have been using a no expiring apk for a while. But I finally got the beta! Only thing is it seems the beta tends to lag sometimes. Nothing crazy. It's almost unnoticeable. But just a note.

    Is spellcheck cut out of it? It wasn't correcting some commonly incorrect words.

    having trouble with the tutorial!

    Downloaded fine and have it turned on, but the tutorial "Swype is quick" never completely finishes! It just shows the action, but I can't do anything else.

    I can TYPE with swype in an email or SSM, but can not SWYPE! Am I doing it wrong? Any ideas?

    I had the same exact issue before and all I did was reinstall Swype and it's working now.

    Go to your manage applications screen and see if Swype is there. If it is, uninstall it. Don't uninstall the Swype installer though. Then try to install swype again.

    A similar thing happened to me.
