    POST HAS BEEN EDITED IN RECOGNITION OF "TheSwypeTeam"
    YOU MUST NOW GOTO ORIGINAL POST ON XDA IF ITS STILL WORKING

    So I've been hunting around for about 8 hours now for a full working version of Swype for the Nexus One.

    and... I Found IT!!!

    Works without a hitch installed it roughly 1 hour ago.

    Alternate Link to Original Discussion on XDA.. If the above is deleted by Mod's http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=625910

    To use the keyboard:

    1 - Goto: Settings - Language & Keyboard - Check the box next to Swype
    2 - Goto any text field: Long Press - Select Input - Swype

    I highly recommend going through the tutorial found in the Swype Settings under Language & Keyboard

    Your Going To Love It!

    Sincere
    Nex

    I Freakin Love this Keyboard!

    Did your Nexus not come with one? Is the UK getting Jipped :eek:

    The only gripe I had with the Nexus was the keyboard. I'm glad this has been solved. At least for me.

    Like Rusty said you can just direct your Nexus's browser to the file, It's actually a bit easier that way.

    Good find!! That's for sharing. I really like this app. It's the best input app I've installed on my Nexus One.

    Well found, works great thanks very much.

    I am sure the moderators will remove your file link though.

    Really?.. It's not a direct link. So I would think that should be fine. I will put the link to the original discussion in there as well ;)

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Thanks for that. I was enjoying playing with the older version, but it's nice to have landscape if you're as clumsy as I am.

    Hi

    Do you put the .zip file on your sd card or uncompress it first.

    I have done this but the file manager step says it can't read the .apk file. (which is actually a folder, right/)

    Have you enabled installation from other sources in the application settings?

    Aha.

    The file came down as a .apk.zip file. \rather than uncompress the file, I renamed it deleting the .zip extension and then copied to the SD card.

    This seems to have worked.

    This looks pretty cool. Takes some getting used to, though. But it seems like it could be much faster typing in the long run

    Thanks! I installed. It's awesome! However, swiping across the keyboard does not bring up speech-to-text input and I can't see anyway to get to it quickly. I liked that shortcut.
