    Register to download the official beta release. It's better than the leaked version, and legal.

    I uninstalled the original version first, then ran the SWYPE installer that gets installed with this download.

    just installed the beta... Had been using an older version on my eris and after upgrading to 2.1 my older version was not working as smoothly as before. This morning I found a newer version and loaded it with it working much smoother and noticed small changes to the interface.

    Then I found the android beta info and loaded it instead noticing more small changes but working great so far!

    Love the swype.

    Thanks for the heads up! They added vibrate on keypress (I was hoping for that)! Never a boring day in Android World!

    What a great way to start a weekend, thank you! To settings pronto, new default vibrate feels a little like being tased. It's happened to me so often. :)

    Since this IS the "Android Applications" sub-forum, and SWYPE is an Android Application ... I figured this was the most appropriate place to actually have a thread regarding the release. No? ;)

    Just out of interest, why do they need your name/town etc? I can understand asking people to register for a beta to gauge interest etc but I can't quite get my head around why they need all the info they ask for?

    Anyone get the email, then when following the link you arrive at a page that says "oops swype can't figure out where you are trying to go." Kinda like the link was incomplete and would not direct me all the way to the installer. I have a cellular south HTC hero (like the sprint) and have never had it installed before. It will allow me to log onto website and resend "download" email. Same results every time. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    In Dolphin, I opened the link I was trying to visit and there was a %Cbr at the end of the link. Remove it and you are good to go.

    Or just go to beta.swype.com/android/get

    Just a heads up - xScope and Dolphin where not downloaing the complete install file. The native browser worked fine.

    Update: Xscope just released an update that fixes the Swype download issue.

    Sussed the bad link issue that was troubling me and one other above. Clicking on the email link tries to load a https page. Changing it to http works

    @ Nodders and every one else that responded... Thanks for the help. Changing to "http" worked great! Installed with no issues.

    There's a problem on the nexus. When you reboot, you get an error message and it stops working. Uninstall and reinstall and its fine again.

    Wow, yeah, you're right. Epic fail. Going back to the leaked release with all haste.

    This! I tried uninstalling then rebooting and installing again, but it always breaks after the latest install. The leaked beta never had these problems.

    Been waiting for this for awhile now.
    I installed the beta earlier today.
    Gonna take some time getting used to.
    (Gonna be hard to break some old habits)

    Thanks for sharing.
