Is there any way to get Swype beta even though it's closed?

    I just got a Sprint Hero and I'm coming from Palm phones that always had physical keyboards. At this point in time--I've had it for about a week--it's frustrating beyond words to peck away on the virtual keyboard, slow as molasses, with about as much accuracy as a two year old trying to spell.

    I know Swype would help immensely. Is there any way to get it even though the beta is closed? Would begging and bribing the makers of swype help? I really want a virtual keyboard for a number of reasons, but the stock keyboard on the Hero is terrible.


    Thanks,

    You can get the apk here:

    After downloading the file, copy it to your SD card and install it using Astro or another file manager app.

    There's nothing shady about doing that? I mean, there's not chance it's a rogue application that looks like Swype that will steal all my passwords, is it?

    Is it the first link on that webpage?
