Default Swype Keyboard for Behold 2

Swype is a pretty cool keyboard and it seems to work on the Behold 2 with the new updated file.
Just go on google and search "Swype for HVGA Devices - *updated*"

Download the APK and transfer it to the SDCARD.
Install it via Astro File Manager.
Go into Settings >> Locale and Text and check off Swype.
if you are using TWlauncher (Settings>>Language and Keypad and check off Swype)
Also make sure to disable Audio Settings for the Swype keyboard so it doesn't Force Close.
Then open up somewhere to type, LONG PRESS, choose input method and pick Swype.
And then enjoy the cool new keyboard.

Thanks to BUGDOG Below, you can now become part of the Swype Beta
http://beta.swype.com/
That is version 1.25.16.5625.t100 which seems to be the latest version. This version installed is approximately 4.33MB! Enjoy!

Wow--thanks so much for this. I just downloaded it and installed it exactly as you said, and I can't even tell you how much ass it kicks. I had been using better keyboard, and it's fine, good for what it is. But I'm a pretty big guy with thick fingers, and this tiny screen, even in landscape mode, was kinda killing me. I tried shapewriter, but it was more trouble than it was worth. Swype's text prediction is incredibly accurate, and at my first try, I had no problem writing out a long email in portrait mode which would have been excruciating otherwise. This is just huge for the usability of this phone

No idea; you're using a Behold 2? I followed Mastermind's instructions and it worked perfectly. Hope you get that fixed!

Search on google and download the package from the site you get the search. If you get one of the other swype it will say that as the resolution is for the Nexus One/Droid.
It should be named signed-swypebeta.apk

I thought swype was a gimmick at first but it is really accurate. I still like the mundane process of actually pressing buttons though so I don't know if I'll fully convert over to a swype user

Have you gone through the tutorial? Very useful--caps and double letters I would never have figured out on my own.

For caps, once your finger moves above the keys it takes a split second to go to the capital letter--if you watch, you'll see the keyboard change to caps. If you go too fast, it won't register as a capital. So it takes a little practice, but you get used to just a slight hesitation at the top to get the cap letter. Hope it works for you; I love it!

**UPDATE** I cannot edit my original post but now there is a newer version of the Swype Keyboard. The updated version seems to work even better. The version is 1.16.12.5228.219.

To find it you can try using google and searching for "Swype-SwypeReference-HVGA-trial-release.1.16.12.5228.219.apk"

If you have an older version already installed make sure to uninstall before trying to install the new version, or else you get an error while installing!
Use the instructions in the first post to install.

Now there is Auto-Cap after a punctuation point. It also seems a bit more responsive. Being a later version of the program one would also expect it to be more stable (though it was stable with the old version).

New Swype is a real nice update, I suggest updating if you have been using the older version.

How new is the update? I just put Swype on for the first time 3 days ago so I assumed I had the latest.

EDIT: Nevermind, I have the latest.

It is because this version contains all the languages...The other one I had in the first post was only US English and Spanish (thus a lot less data). I will look into removing the extra languages to cut the size down. (Or maybe someone else wants to give it a try!!)

Okay so there exists a new version that is only the English Language and removed the Tutorials. Brings down the install size on my BH2 to 3.08MB... a lot better.

This version was edited by Tudsen on Xda-Developers... You can possibly find it by using google and searching "SwypeReference-HVGA-trial-release_eng.1.16.12.5228.219.apk" it will more than likely link to XDA-Developers and on post 136 on Page 14 of the thread, there should be a link (mediafire) to this version.

Hey does anyone know if this version is time bombed? The older version that I had been using for about two weeks finally popped up with a message that said "Your trial period is now over."

I've always been a physical keyboard type guy, so when I got the BH2 I found the whole virtual keyboard thing was driving me freggin' nuts... Anyway I tried swype and I've got to admit it's an amazing piece of software, it *almost* makes me not miss a real keyboard it's that good.

I one thing I found frustrating with Swype was how the "word prediction" feature covered up the actual text field. I couldn't see what I was typing, specially in messenger. Other than that, excellent!

My biggest issue is that as a LONG time blackberry user, the most comfortable (and fastest way for me to type is using both thumbs. I am just having trouble moving over to using a single finger.

Does Swype require hacking/rooting (sorry, new with all this) to install? I don't want to void the phone's warranty or bring it to a point where I can not reset the phone back to factory setting. Thanks

@dctony2010 - no rooting or hacking required - just follow the directions. It is still in Beta, but appears pretty stable to me.

Yeah, I love it - to add words, you can just type them in like on a regular keyboard. Once you space or hit a punctuation mark, it will add it to the dictionary.

Mine won't let me switch back to swype. It says trial period is over.

Question: the Swype instructions/tips say that to remove a word from the dictionary, you double tap to highlight it and then tap the swype key - when I double tap, nothing happens. Am I missing something, or am I an idiot, or is this a known issue? One of the few things that bugs me about swype is when it puts some random sequence of letters in there - I really need to be able to delete stuff from the dictionary. I've tried reinstalling the beta, and I still can't double tap on a word. Thanks in advance!
