Default Swype Tips & Tricks

Well after you have swype installed and ready to go here are a few tips to help you get the most out of it:

1. Use the built in tutorial. This tutorial takes 5 minutes to complete but will show you the ins and outs of using its keyboard, its very handy and a must if you intend on using it.

2. If a word you swype in does not come up correctly or offers you choices that are not even close, just click the X and then type it in one letter at a time, using the peck-a-key method. This adds it to the dictionary and the next time you swype it in, it'll work.

3. The built in dictionary is not as complete as you may want it, but over time it will learn how you type/swype and will work better as time goes on. After a week or so it should work with most or all the words you swype in, but give it time. They exclude some words on purpose (cuss words etc) or words that aren't very commonly used to keep the size of the file small so it doesn't take up too much space on your device with words and patterns you don't use.

4. Holding down a button will change the letter to the symbol above the letter. This comes in handy when you need to insert a couple numbers or commonly used symbols and don't want to switch screens. I find its much quicker to just hold a button than switching, hitting the key and then switching back.

5. Holding down the back key will delete full words at a time. That way you don't need to keep hitting the back key repeatedly, this is a time saver if you need to delete a full sentence for example.

6. Pushing shift will change the symbol keyboard to the symbols/characters above the numbers. This just makes it quicker to choose a symbol instead of long pressing the key to achieve the same result.

I'll update this post and add more tips as i can think of them or others post them.

Let's start simple - remove and do another clean install. Maybe something as easy as that will work?

This is stupid but I downloaded the program from the link above and saved it on my laptop. I then sent it to my phone through email.

I saved the attachment to the phone storage but can't find it now.

EDIT...NEVERMIND! I just needed to long-press the compose box and choose the keyboard from there. Been good since figuring that out this morning.

If you want a new word memorized by Swype's dictionary, tap the <space> key after typing out the word.

I recommend the following settings (home page-->menu-->settings-->language and keyboard-->swype settings):

---check auto-spacing
---uncheck word prediction (too often inserts the wrong word)
---disable audio feedback (causes crashes with some phones)
---change speed-vs.-accuracy toward accuracy (you can go all the way with this because the Inc is so fast). This enables faster Swyping because errors are more accurately corrected automatically.

Deleting words from dictionary:
- double click a word, then click the Swype button. This will ask you if you want to delete the word.
- only words that you have added can be deleted. Not the default dictionary words.

Default swype package doesn't match screen size

I installed swype and love it. But every time any app changes the orientation of the screen (portrait vs landscape one way or the other), and every time I'm going to use Swype, I get a message that says "The swype package you installed does not match the screen size of the device. Please contact Swype about issue. Screen size 800x480."

Also, the keyboard doesn't show up in landscape mode (I just noticed). Do I have the wrong version of swype? I know they haven't made one specifically for the Incredible... but is there one that fits the screen better?

Took me a minute to figure it out too. Did you activate it in the settings>keyboard menu? You have to check the Swype box.

Then, when on a text message or email, long-press the text box and an option box will appear. Choose 'input' and select swype.

Is Swype really worth it? Seems like a weird way to text. Also, can someone please post a link to a version that works correctly with the Incredible?

Thanks.

The link is already posted in this thread - see 4th post.

Swype is worth it for some, but not for all. It is a weird way to text, but it's a new technology that is extremely efficient and much quicker than normal tap input methods. If you don't like it you just simply remove it.

Yes, it rocks. I just use the Voice to Text too much for short emails and texts, so I keep the android keyboard open instead.

Thanks I can't believe I missed the link. I need some sleep. Might give this a shot, looks like I need Astro File Manager first.

Cheers.

I agree, for some reason I cannot get it to work right, sliding my fingers around to type seems so foreign to me.

As for tips and tricks, if you slide from the swype key to the sym key you get a new keyboard that allows you to copy, paste, and a whole bunch of other things I haven't played with yet lol. To get back to the regular keyboard, hit abc key, where the sym key was before.

Hit the menu button then the microphone button is just above and to the right of the menu key. That is where it is on mine, but I am using Handcent keyboard with swype.

What is the Handcent keyboard? I have Swype but that is all.

If I hit menu while the keyboard is up, I get 5 options ("all messages", "quick text", "attach", "dicard" and "insert smiley"). No microphone.

That Speak / Microphone option is only there because it's a feature of the Handcent SMS app. If you go into a different app, such as the native Mail app, if you are using Swype, there is no speak / mic option.

Hopefully someone will come up w/ a version of Swype that also exposes the Speak feature.

The Swype website says they are working on a voice to text button as a top priority.

Yup...I just got Handcent and that fixes the problem in my text messages but I still don't have Voice Text in other programs.

I'd rather have Swype without voice text than to go back to that regular keyboard!

Has anybody had any luck using Swype to draw emoticons?

I added "" by typing it, highlighting it, and then hitting the Swype key, but the best I can get is "" appearing as an option in the pop-up list. Swype seems determined that "jp" is a possibility. I've tried deleting "jp" from the Swype dictionary, but it's not there.

Minor I know, but figured it couldn't hurt to ask.

you can't reply by voice yet, but when you are prompted at the quick sms screen, you can click the microphone there and use voice to text..... I love this swype thing... you must give it a few days and then you'll always use it.... believe me

I have found it most difficult to type in emails and passwords. I don't know if there is a good solution for the password. It doesnt seem to get added to the dictionary, but I probably dont want it in there anyways. As for emails, it is tough because of the @ symbol. I wish I could swype the whole thing or have it added to the dictionary but it doesnt seem to work.

Another annoyance is when I try to correct something. Maybe my finger is too big, but it usually takes several tries for me to get the cursor exactly where I want it. Sure I can use the optical track pad but that can be slow. I would prefer having something like the zoom in / magnify glass feature that iphones have.

Otherwise, its been great

type in the email by hitting each letter individually, then highlight the whole email and press the swype key at the bottom left. Now swype the email. It should work.

Trying moving the swype settings more towards accuracy, that shoud help

Home Screen--> Menu--> Settings--> Launguage & Keyboard--> Swype settings--> Speed vs. Accuracy

The phone is already fast enough to keep up with swype so I moved mine about 3/4 towards accuracy and it does fine.

Let me know if that helps

Since I use this swype thing, I have found the only way to speak into the navigation (rather than type, if I'm driving) is hold the end point location, switch to the normal imput method, and then speak.

Is there a better way? Has to be....

Swype is great, but the one thing they absolutely HAVE TO DO is add an auto-correct dictionary like the Blackberry. If we could Swype "Il" and have it auto correct to "I'll" or "idk" auto correct to "i don't know," I'd love this app. I also have a few instances where the auto spacing after words doesn't work. But it seems like the people at Swype are listening to our comments and making improvements, which is fantastic.

I've tried them both, and I find Swype to be more accurate.

It sems that my MMS threads are taking about 2 seconds longer to open up when I installed Swype. Anyone else have this issue?

i love swype but I find small words like 'or' and such give me a heck of a time. its amazing for long words like superficial or incredible.

been almost 2 weeks since i have had swype and i still think im pretty slow. still alot of errors because of small words mostly

If you run through the tutorial it specifically advises you to avoid direct connects between two letters when doing an intentional 2 letter word. This will avoid the errors you are seeing. .... It does take a little learning, but once you get used to it it is not hard to have it be correct on the first try.

Besides that, when you enter a short word, it often displays it as the second choice in the swype dictionary so its easy enough to click and continue.

My only annoyance is that on my RAZR the "W" key is covered by the little "correction pentagon" for a few too many seconds and makes it damn near impossible to start a sentence with "W" in it.

Does anyone have a resolution for this?
