    Mod Edit: Link removed. Please, no links to Swype, no links to links of Swype. You get the picture. Swype has its business model, and we need to respect it.

    This version doesn't handle fast input well at all.

    When trying to launch it, it says ''Activity Not Found - com.swype.android.inputmethod''. Icon doesn't show up in App list either. Any clues? I unzipped it and installed it, then restarted my phone and still nothing.

    You gotta change the input method. Select it in your settings then hold down tap on the area where the text goes when you're gonna send a message or something.

    Oh, I see. I'm a tard, sorry about that. That was kind of a no brainer.

    Is this the update with the new colored keyboards and bug fixes they just released a day or so ago? Also, is this link only for the EVO or can I install this on my Gf's Moto. Droid as well?

    Not working for me. I was able to complete the tutorial, but none of the other apps I've tried (e.g. Messaging, Evernote) seem to be taking the Swype input. Yes, it's selected in the Settings>Language and keyboard area. What am I missing?

    When you go into your Messaging app to type a text, hold down on the space where you would normally just click to bring up the keyboard. It should bring up a Menu asking for Input Method, and then just select Swype.

    Ah, got it. Thanks. Hmmm...it doesn't like the word "weird"; it want's to output "word" all the time. Not sure if this is faster than the stock predictive keyboard which I've found surprisingly effective. Maybe with practice. Can't really bash it after 5 minutes of use.

    No problem......Yeah, I noticed it was somewhat awkward to type words with double letters in them, such as 'boss' or 'middle' etc. This is just a beta version too, it's a good start though.

    I can see people complaining about how it causes extra wear on their screen protectors. What's so trippy about it is how it seems to know how to decipher your spastic fumbling into legible text. The Quick Reply box here scrolls a little wonky, too.

    I hate to say it, but SlideIT works much better and more accurately. However Swype looks much prettier! SlideIT is kind of ugly.
