    A friend told me about the Swype app that works with texting. I did a search in Market Place and can't find it. Is it available for the Incredible?

    It's in a closed beta, and only available to a chosen few to test. Other, illicit means to acquire the .apk won't be discussed on Android Forums.

    The website where you can get swype is here: Swype | Text Input for Screens

    Currently, their beta program is closed. If you sign up on their email list, I believe they'll let you know when you can get it.

    Swype is not available in the market, afaik.

    Per the developer's request.

    just thought I would clarify as to why.

    I wasn't trying to acquire anything. My friend was just here with her X that was delivered on Monday. Since both of us being new to smart phones, and being from the older generation, we were showing each other what we had learned. She showed me this on her phone. Then she did a search on the Market Place, or somewhere on the phone as I wasn't paying too close attention, and found it. After she left I did a search and it was not there. I'm not trying to get anything in a round about way and no one should contact me with anything. It was simply an innocent question from an older person. Sorry

    no need to apologize, and no one was insinuating that you were trying to get it illegaly. they are just covering their butts.

    as far as swype goes, some people got it, some dont. haha.not having it sucks, believe me.

    Didn't the Droid X come preloaded with Swype?

    I could be wrong but I am pretty sure I read that somewhere...?

    No problems with asking the question.
    There is a similar app which is available in the market, Slideit. There is a free version you can try out. I recommend trying it free first. I am not a fan of it, but some like it... "Slideit"

    I did some searching and it looks like this is correct, the X came with it preloaded.

    Which explains why the OP's friend had it even though it's now in closed beta.

    I've had nothing but problems with Swype on Froyo. I love swype though and hope they patch it soon.

    Swype is a closed beta. It is unavailable for download unless you have already been invited to the closed beta.

    I am sure this may have already been posted but I thought I'd share. If you tap and hold on an input window on the Droid X, a window opens with the option "input method." If you click on that option, the DX offers Swype. I lust learned it's pre-loaded. There is a great tutorial. ;)
