    I've been looking at getting swype on the desire (just received it yesterday, awesome phone!), but am having problems installing any.

    I assume this is because swype have not released it yet for this phone.

    Does anyone know of any way of getting it onto the desire, or if not, are there any similar programs that will work on the desire?!

    Thanks!

    Swype is in closed beta testing, and is only attainable via an invite. You can email the devs at swype, and ask for an invite. They may or may not give you one.

    You can find the apk online, and try it that way. The only problem with that is that you will not get any updates for it, and you will have to search for the most updated apk for it. Not worth the time/effort.

    I know there is another app similar to swype but I can't remember the name of it. If I remember I'll definitely let you know.

    I've been using SlideIT for a couple of days now, it is so quick it its unbelievable, even when up you ate not very accurate it comes up with the right word. I used to avoid texting but now I can blast out a message in seconds.

    im having a issue with swype.
    when I put the phone in landscape mode I get a message saying that the resolution is not supported and swype does not show unless i turn it back straight up.

    You probably have the wrong one installed in that case! There are numerous swype apks roaming around supporting different resolutions.

    Try using shapewriter There is a problem with swype on the desire. Everytime you switch from the htc keyboard to the swype keyboard multitouch is disabled and need to restart phone to enable multi touch again. shapewriter is alright. I am just testing it out atm as the swype issue was getting on my nerves. I applied for the closed beta who nows i might get lucky :)

    EDIT: Damn Shapewriter does effect multitouch but no reboot required just switch back to regular keyboard.... I am testing to see if the same can be done with swype although i do like shapewriter quite a bit :)
