    I remember seeing a commercial for swype and thought it would be useless, after using it I don't think I could text without it!

    go to swypes website. thats the only advice we can offer here. Links to the unofficial swype apk are prohibited so please do not post the links because your post will be deleted. swype's dev team has told us that they prefer the links are not posted on sites and forums. it is their property so we must adhere to what they say.

    Probably so they can sell it off to phone manufacturers. I thought I heard that their goal was to have it come preinstalled on most phones kind of like the Droid X. I could be wrong though.

    Wouldn't they make more money charging for the standalone app in the market? Then they can make money on all new and old phones.

    You would think but that isn't their business model. They'd rather get a licensing fee from the carrier to put it on specific lines of devices instead which apparently seems to be working for them.

    If they can get it on every android phone made for even $.10/copy, they will make much more money than trying to charge, say $4.99 per copy from users. There are many companies that have made a very good living with that business model. Sometimes market penetration is better than fighting tooth an nail (MS Explorer is a good example).

    Hey Guys,

    I missed the opportunity to try out the Swype Beta. Any ideas how to install a working version now? The zip file i downloaded from Androidcentral stopped working immediatley, due to it being past the trial period.

    Cheers,

    You might try contacting them at Swype | Text Input for Screens and see if they might be able to hook you up?

    It is awesome, the last keyboard I'll ever use!
