What about this Swype deal?General

  1. Hello, new Incredible user here. I would like to use the Swype method for entering text but when I go to the marketplace there area bunch of apps listed with Swype in the title.

    Which one do I want?

    You can also try a couple of other similar keyboards: Slide IT, better keyboard, and Shapewriter (not on market), these are all swipe keyboards.

    EDIT: looks like ShapeWriter isn't "available" anymore. By which I mean it's out there to find, but not from any official source.

    I used Slide It for awhile and I liked it. In fact I liked some things about it better than Swype.

    Thanks for the info...just wish there was a demo for that. I'd love to try it, but can't get the feel of it in Androids 15minute trial window.

    I swore I would not be "buying" any more apps with this new policy and I caved and bought Flight Tracker last week and it worked great for the first couple of hours.

    It is now a week since I first left for my trip and it is STILL giving me updates on my flight from 1/11! Of course now I am out $5!

    Anyway, back on topic...

    I am in Australia and I can't download the Flex T9 app. I have tried doing it with a QR code and manually through the browser on the phone.

    Market returns the message: "There are no matches in the Android Market for the search: pname:com.nuance.flext9.input"

    Does anyone know what is going on?

    I have Swype installed on my Incredible (2.2) and it works perfectly.

    On your phone's browser, go to this site to sign up for and download Swype for Android:

    Swype | Text Input for Screens

    If you get lost, there is a link on that site with step-by-step instructions.

    Keep in mind that if you update your firmware (or root the phone, I discovered) Swype will stop working and you have to completely uninstall/reinstall it. No big deal.
