Default Life post Swype... NOW WHAT?

Now that most of us have lost Swype.... Where do we go from here??

I have had Swype for the past 4 months and spent the past day tapping and can no longer deal with it.

The alternatives I have heard of are:

SlideIT
Swiftkey

Any others?

Anyone know anything about these? What is our best option??

I'm using Swiftkey and think its great. The word prediction is fairly accurate so it does speed up my typing. Now if I could quit trying to swipe on it!

why don't you have a working version of swype. i have had it since the beta was first available and just recently updated to new version of the beta. i think it was a newer version anyway, i just started actually using it about a week ago.

i guess what i am asking is did i miss an expiration date on the beta or something.

and to answer your other question, i have been using swiftkey up until last week. it's ok, but it is definitely no comparison to swype.

My modded version expired late last week. I thought all the 1.56 versions did? I switched to SlideIt. It's about the same as swype. But I found a thread somewhere with an Evo swype (not on XDA ). I think it's 1.61 or something. Works really well. It's just ugly.

Yesterday I downloaded the an EVO Swype from XDA with no mic and it is working great. I suggest you go there if you want to continue using Swype.

So you were "stealing" their intellectual "property"? (although I don't get why they don't just release a paid version. It's good enough to slap on every new phone out there, but not for current users?)

I used SwiftKey for a while, but the lag got to me. Swype's issues with 2.2 also got to me. I'm back to stock for now.

I signed up for the beta a long time ago; I would freak out if my swype expired on me without a new release.

Actually, I did freak out when I found that my version didnt work; but they sent me an email with a link to the new one.

Been using Swiftkey and I LOVE it. I wish the word prediction was more accurate, but there are times I can avoid having to type a few words. Quite enjoy how the keyboard operates overall, including the layout.

Default Official Swype Beta still works; needs update.

My copy of Swype also expired but it's just cause there is a new update. You're supposed to uninstall Swype and the old Swype Installer. Then there should be an email on the account you registered with from Swype linking you to where you can get the update. You have to go there on your phone on a browser that is displaying in android mode rather than desktop. Also don't using Skyfire cause it won't download correctly so you'll have a parsing error when you try to install. If you didn't get an email from them but are registered for the beta, go to their website: Swype | Text Input for Screens then login and have them resend you the email. Good luck!

I am one of the registered beta users but the newest beta dictionary is so messed up that it make about 2 or more mistakes per sentence so it was slower than pecking out the letters.

Ultra Keyboard is awesome. I felt the same as the OP. But it is much sweeter! It has swype like action and then some and almost FULLY customizable.

+1 on ultra keyboard. Swype still works for me, but ultra keyboard has all of the things I have been hoping Swype would implement (better tap-typing, a smoother word suggestion window, an effective landscape mode, voice-input support). It's been like an hour and I'm already sold.

I have the newest version and it does not work properly after reboot. I downloaded Droid X Multi-Touch Keyboard from the web and love that as an alternative. I still use Swype 90% of the time.

They are not releasing it to the market because they are trying to market it to OEMs. You make a lot more money if you can just get an OEM to license your product for every device they ship.
The only reason there is a beta available at all is for the free testing.



It is like when you sleep with a girl and never call her back. That is what Swype is doing to all of us.

OEM is their business model. Great. So when the beta testing is over...what do people do with ...

Nexus One
Incredible
Evo
Etc
Etc
Etc????

I'm turned off to swype now simply because of the way they are running things. OEM business model seems completely against the open android ideal (as are a lot of things Verizon is doing, but i digress...)
Swiftkey? I really don't want to go back to tapping. I tried SlideIt -and am using it now. But the prediction sucks. And putting all the symbols on 4 different pages is annoying.

I haven't tried Ultra Keyboard yet. IS that the 6.99 one without a demo? May just have to take a risk as slideIT aint cutting it for me.

Ultra is 2.79 and has a 24 hour demo which I am going to try out this evening.

I like slideit. The developer has been responsive to suggestions and plans some updates soon. I actually like it better than swype....the microphone feature is nice.

Try shapewriter, they dropped it from the market but its still out there with a google search. Shapewriter is free, and they still offer support/downloads from their own website so its not an "illegal download" you just cant get it from the market right now. The only thing its really missing is a mic key. look for Shapewriter 3.0.9 as this is the non-expiring legal copy.

I agree it's really weird what they are doing. I do believe, however, that the beta testers will get a free link when it goes gold. If not, ...well I better not say here. That being said, the beta sucks. You need to switch input after every reboot, which a lot of us do multiple times / day with the new roms and goodies. The installer is a sham and word prediction way off lately. Oh well, I still use it but someone is going to come up with a better version without the current limitations.

WOW - so far ultra keyboard blows everything out of the water. Anything you don't like - just fix. It is SOOOOOOOoo customizable.. I love it!!!

I'll give it the 24hour trial - if i still feel this way, i'm not looking back.

good riddens swype!

Another vote for Ultra Keyboard. Turn on "tracing" in the settings and it works just like Swype. No lag. There are a ton of customizations and settings.

Does anyone find the keys way too small? I keep tracing the wrong word because my fingers (which are small) keep hitting the wrong keys.

I got a nice working themed version of swype so I am set for now but how much can you cutomize ultra keyboard?

Can you change colors or the look of anything?

Yes - completely flexible. You specify the colors, the size, the padding, etc

Download the Hero theme in the Market for Ultra, the keys are a tiny bit bigger.
