    Hi, I downloaded swype from somewhere or other, but now I'm told the trial version is over? And I can no longer use it. I can't find it anywhere, any ideas? Is even pay for it but can't find anything at all.
    Thanks

    Blimey. A can of worms I've opened! This is a real biatch. Once you have swype there can't be any going back to anything else. It's a way of life! More important than anything else in my phone! I've registered for a new version. Hopefully ill get the invite soon!

    I signed up about a week ago, and got notification today. Pretty cool app! Takes some getting used to because it completely changes the way you input everything, but it seems accurate and fast.

    Yes, for those who have been wondering how to get a legit copy of Swype for your phone, Swype seems to have a new Beta version 7625, and are opening it up to more Beta testers again. So, just go to their website
    Swype | Text Input for Screens
    and sign up. You should get an e-mail reply within a day with a link to how to install it.

    It really is great. Watch the tutorials, and the tips and tricks. Don't know I managed typing without it.

    It is especially great for long words. Handles words with apostrophes very well. You can also very easily make it learn new words, so slangs aren't a problem. You can even make it learn words made of letters, numbers and symbols (eg android123@android.com).

    It works well on the Desire, although the "double-tap" trick to correct words only seems to work in landscape mode. Also, the Beta seems to have a US English dictionary, although you can put in your own proper English ;) spellings easily (eg colour instead of color)...

    Oh, and it was created by the same chap that created T9 predictive texts.

    And the iphone doesn't have it!!! Something about Apple not liking tweaks to their OS......

    Here goes - using Swype to write this. It's weird!

    I think my keyboard needs recalibrating.

    I like the fact that you don't get forced to use it as the keyboard is still available for conventional tapping.

    Definitely getting faster the more I use it. I will be persevering!

    PS It even worked with my name!

    Works much better in landscape mode.

    I got the email today, so am happy again. Hopefully won't have to go through this ball ache again. For anyone not yet tried it you must give it a go, seriously its great. Coming from an iphone 3gs, I thought the keyboard on the desire was pants, all off them. Even htc_ime was not that good. But once you've got used to swype there seriously isn't any going back. Give it a couple of days, do the tutorial so you know what your doing and its excellent. Swype the information key over the symbol key to bring up a directional key pad to move the cursor around.

    I wish there's an option that disables auto saving typed words that are not yet on swype's dictionary, I don't want my passwords to appear on the swype's word suggestions screen...

    Oh that will take some getting used to, seems good though, was always interested in it after I seen a trailer before I got the phone, could never find it.

    Cheers for pointing it out.

    Not so sure I am a big fan of this. Don't get me wrong, it's very cool and seems to work very well, I just find it a bit awkward.

    I've just downloaded and installed this but i can't get it working. Under language and keyboard Swype is ticked, but whenever I go to enter text it's just the old fashioned input method that works. Tried a reboot but still nothing.

    Any ideas?
