Dude, once you get used to swype, you will never be able to go back...it crushes the hunt and peck method.

Its working really well and rather fast . Sometimes I forget what I'm typing and just start swiping or swyping and I get the right word to come up. Sweet app.

Auto-Spacing is not working, although it is checked in the Swype settings.

The only thing I don't like is when I need to manually type something, last name for example, it can be a tad slow in response. But I guess this keyboard isn't meant for that. But I love to swype.

Same here. I held off on getting a tablet until I could get swype for honeycomb.

Upgraded to 3.2 yesterday and Swype Beta for tablets no longer works - it thinks the screen size is non-conforming, so keyboard won't fit on screen. Known issue per Swype forum.

My keyboard fits but some of the menu buttons are a bit small. Still works fine though.

Edit: one thing I do notice when swyping in the address bar, it won't auto space anymore. Or maybe it never did that and I misremembered.

I found the swype honeycomb apk file online and installed it directly without going through the beta (since the beta installer just tells you your screen size isn't supported). I won't link it because it's technically a pirated apk, but it's not hard to find. It gives you error messages and puts the keyboard in the wrong place when you switch between landscape and portrait, but it's better than nothing until they fix the official version.

I've been using Swype 3.0 on my Xoom for the past month and I feel that it is laggy when swyping around. Does anyone else experience this?

Upgraded to 3.2 and now receive an error that Swype is incompatable with the screen size. Works OK in landscape though. Anyone else running into this issue?

Yep. It's a known issue. If you close the keyboard and reopen it in another orientation it should work, but you'll keep getting the error. Just don't uninstall it, because the installer won't let you reinstall.
