Default swype help

ok so im having an issue with swype. i was having issues with my phone rebooting so i cleaned house and installed mikg 3.0 (which is the bomb btw) i tried using a swype apk i had and to no avail. i get the beta has expired. no biggie. so i went to beta.swype.com and did the whole register thing only to get an email with instructions which i followed. but while downloading swype it gave me a parcel error. and i cant log into their website cause i didnt get an activation email and when i wanted to get it sent again i still got nothing. not in spam folders or anything. anyone know what i can do? this regular typing is horrible lol

Mizzou has a post around here somewhere with a link to the swype app. I installed it yesterday, works fine.

You have to go to the Language/Keyboard setting to get it to work btw.
Also, I should state that I did *nothing* besides installing the .apk and activating it with the language setting. No hassling with emails or beta nonsense.

I'll link the apk in a second.

Yeah give it a shot. I prefer the regular non swype ics keyboard. I feel like I end up having to constantly change whatever swype thinks I'm typing. Surely it's user error on my part.

I personally find swype to be insanely more difficult to 'type' on than the stock keyboard, but the 'swyping' is surprisingly accurate (mostly).

What do you set for speed vs accuracy?

Lol, I've never adjusted it. So it was about 50/50, but now I have it set for about 35/65 in favor of accuracy (or error tolerance I believe).

we'll see how that goes tomorrow.
