    I got a swype beta invite for my incredible yesterday, downloaded and installed but I have no idea how to activate when typing. Any help here, what am I missing?

    Menu > Settings > Language & Keyboards > check Swype

    Then go into any program that has a text input field. Long press the input area and select Input Method. Then pick Swype. Should be working.

    I also just got my beta invite. But when I go to install the swype-installer.apk, it window pops up and asks me to complete the action using: Gamboid/SNesoid or Package Installer. I choose the Package Installer, then it says there was a parse error (There is a problem parsing the package)

    Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Sorry to hijack this elamb23, but I think he answered your question, and I didn't want to start a new thread.

    Yeah, my girlfriend has it on her Samsung OmniaII and it looks like a neat way of text input. I hope to give it a real test, if I ever figure out what the deal is with the parsing error.

    Isn't it always some stupid check box somewhere? Thank you very much for pointing that out. I was following along with the screen shots on the Swype page, and I didn't see anything about the parse error. I should have checked that box!

    I checked it, but it still gives me a parse error. I'm going to reboot the phone and then try it again.

    Not that it's much help to you, but just FYI I got a link to the beta this morning too and it worked fine for me.

    I did not see this posted yet, so I apologize if it is a duplicate. I tried to search first.

    Anyway Swype Beta is available again.

    https://beta.swype.com/android/

    So for all that are unofficial users, you can become official now.
    KoukiFC3S and iamtone like this.

    I too signed up last week and received an email late last night inviting me. So far I think I like it. FYI to others do NOT use skyfire to try and down load the app it will not work. Use the stock browser.

    What browser did you use?

    I used Dolphin Browser HD for the install and it was fine.

    From the Beta FAQ
    ------
    I click the link in my activation email to download Swype, but I'm told that my phone is not an Android device, even though it is! What do I do?

    This message means that you may have your brower in "desktop mode", or are using something other than the Android default browser (like Skyfire or Opera Mini). To turn the Mobile View setting back on in the Android browser - Open your browser settings (click menu > more > settings) and locate the option for "Mobile view." Click the checkmark next Mobile View if it is unchecked and retry the download link from your email. If the setting is enabled and you are still getting this error, please email androidbeta@swype.com.
