    i just got it from xda Swype for the EVO? Now with an *****-PROOF GUIDE! - xda-developers its sooo much faster now i to am a swype fiend
    I have used swype that I downloaded from this site for a couple months now. Well today swype isn't working for me. I can type with it, but it won't let me swype. I removed swype and started all over again with the instructions you gave. It still doesn't work. Does anyone have any idea how I can get swype going again? I miss it already!

    This morning when i woke up, my swype on my evo said that the trial was over. This really sucks because i hate the default input. I tried to redownload it to see if i might get lucky, but no luck. Anybody running swype with the same problem? or does anyone know a different way to get swype where it wont expire? Any help appreciated!

    If you signed up for the official beta on the website you'll probably get an email to download the latest beta.

    You won't find the APK here or where to get it, though, because it's against forum rules to post those.

    Posting the APK or where to get it is against forum rules. The beta expired and a new one was probably released. If you signed up for the beta you'll probably get an email with the updated beta.

    I guess the same thing happened to me. This sucks because swype is the best way for me to text. I think there's something similar, so I'm going to try that next. Just don't remember what it is.

    I think it's called Shapewriter, but I'm not sure if it's available anymore.

    Ok, i removed the post.... didn't know they were that sensative on these forums...maybe i should leave this community if they are going to be that picky. Just doesn't seem quite right to me.

    They just don't wanna get in trouble. Swype does monitor the forums for things like that. It's not AC's fault. I saw a post a while back from Swype on a forum that specifically said that they monitor forums and that the more people "steal" the app the longer it'll take to come out of beta and be available to us.

    I can understand that. But if they would put it on the market, I honestly say I'd pay $10 for swype. Even in 'beta' stage. Oh well, I guess I won't blame AC.

    There's a keyboard called "SlideIt" in Android Market that is similar to Swype (swipe-to-type)

    I would too. I guess what seems weird is that it comes preloaded on certain phones but they can't get any kind of public release out for the rest of us.

    The mods here don't like talk about leaked beta's of Swype.
    that is correct. please refrain from posting links to cracked versions of a swype apk. it will be much appreciated

    I was reading in another forum, i guess they got themselves into some kind of binding contract. Not sure exactly though. But yea, that is whats weird, becuase if they made it public and paid, they would be rolling in the dough. Thats for sure.

    Just got done installing this. It doesn't seem to be working. When I try and Swype a word after I lift my finger the entire border of virtual keyboard has a blue line that flashes once. Any ideas what I did wrong?

    I just installed SlideIt and it isn't bad at all. I can't say it is Swype good but really close. The only thing I don't really like is that you can't hide the keyboard but I so rarely need that anyway when I'm actively typing. Try it. There is a free trial. If you don't like it you don't have to pay and it is pretty cheap, 5.

    Just wanted to add my input here. I know you guys love Swype, as do I. It's pre installed on my Fascinate and it works well. Unfortunately it is not legally available to everyone, and posting the apk or even linking to it is a no-no in the forums. The only legitamate method of obtaining this software is via their beta or on a phone where it is pre-installed. I appreciate your guys cooperation in not posting it here.
