    Well they had a public beta, but it's closed now. It would be nice if they'd start selling it in the market, but there's no telling when that will happen. They're more focused on licensing it to manufacturers on new phones.

    search the web, it's pretty easy to find someone who's uploaded it, then just download it put it on the phone use astro to find it on the sd card and install it.

    that's what I did on the 2nd beta release....I think this is their 3rd....by the time they released the June version I was on the list so I got an email on the download of the new version.


    when you l0se swype, it's like you lost a puppy....search web for the correct version you will find it.

    You must go to swype.com and register there is no other way to get the link with a program that will work without doing it that way.

    there is no way of sharing the swype beta because it gives u a swype dowloader that u have to log into then it downloads the actual apk and it ties to your account.

    but before i had a swype account there was always apks out there just google search for latest swype apk

    I tried to install it on my droid. After I enabled it in the settings it would not work. It would only beep at me.

    I googled "swype beta is 1.56.30.7625 download" then the 4th one down is a link to a download.....really easy to find several ones to download.

    obviously download at your own risk as anyone could post up a virus..and No I have no idea if that one is legit or a virus, do it at your own risk.

    Technically, it doesn't hurt. The dev's send out emails to those who sign up for the beta when it is available again. Therefore, signing up for it now could prove to be a good thing so he doesn't loose out next time.

    Also here's a really off-the-wall thought..... maybe actually contributing feedback to a beta test rather than simply pirating the app will help the developers bring it to market that bit quicker. :rolleyes:

    Once again, Swype is copyrighted and not freely distributable. Requests for and/or links to it are prohibited by the Forum Rules (see "Linking to pirated/illegal software")

    I love Swype, it makes typing so much faster. I would definitely pay for it, but I had to force a download since I wasn't able to obtain a beta invite even though I applied for it a month+ ago. Any news on when the beta will reopen or when the actual product will be pushed to the Android Market?

    In the forum dog house.
    Swype already signed their product into contract and the developers/owners are no doubt making boat loads of money.
    If they had made it available as a paid app instead of an ongoing "BETA" project, I would gladly have bought it but I hardly feel I've been "pirating" Swype.
    -Meanwhile, this behemoth forum is chock full of nasty adware that hijacks my browser (and others') with every other page click. I don't see any mod or admin adding their opinion to those requests made by myself & others to look into it.
    Funny how that Money-Go-Round works on the Internet.
