Anyone know where i can get swype for the Devour, I heard it is available. Thanks.
Idon't know what swype is. Maybe a search on the market?
if you are refering to Skype, then its in the marketplace, its free and i use it all the time!!
This is Swype: YouTube - A swype demo
I have the Droid eris and I downloaded it for my phone. My sister just got the Devour, so I'm trying to help her figure it out and if possible, download all the cool apps I have on my Eris... Like Swype!
BEST KEYBOARD EVER!!!!!
Please let me know if it's available for this phone.
I too have it on my Eris, but my brother just got a Devour, and after seeing it on my mine he wants it. So I told him I would ask around on here. I have heard it is available, but can't find it anywhere. So any HELP?
wow that is pretty cool, id like to try it. ive noticed that some apps ive heard of are not in the marketplace for the devour.. is this because its running android 1.6? i noticed i couldnt get google goggles either lol.
Here are instructions i found for installing Swype:
Leaked: Swype For Android Beta Unofficially Available For Motorola Droid | iPhandroid
I have not tried it yet, so try it at your own risk. I wont get my hands on my sisters phone until maybe Sunday.
But this is pretty much the same process I followed for installing it on my Eris. It was also not on the Market, but it works great on my phone.
Please update if you try it.
I've been using swype for about a month on my Devour. Swype | Text Input for Screens - Joined the android beta then just downloaded it on my Devour.
Only problem is, they have closed the registration for the beta, so i guess untill it opens back up.
What's the point? Of course it looks really cool..but i can text waaaay faster on a qwerty then any one could ever do this swype deal...
I type way faster with swype. I cant type on the devour default qwerty worth a shit. Im decent at the iphone Keyboard, but the screen is larger and the keyboard is better.
Dont knock it until you try it.
I've gotten REALLY fast on Swype.
Does anyone know where I can get Swype for the Devour?
I finally tried the link I posted above, but that one doesn't seem to work.
Please update if you're able to download it.
You must have missed the TV Ad where they break the Guiness Book world record for texting using Swype..
I've definitely seen it...I still don't see the point, so one person is really fast it? I'm sorry I just like to be able to walk/sit around and text without looking at my phone, seems alot easier then having to concentrate on what I'm swyping my finger over while texting.
edit: I took out my old LG enV touch and typed that commercial out about 6 secs slower then he did the first try, sorry I don't have the money samsung does to fly in the guinness book people.
I am using the free ShapeWriter Keyboard app. Same idea as Sype. I signed up to be notified when Sype is open again, but until then, ShapeWriter is great.
If you know where the keys are without looking normally, swype would be the same thing. You just don't have to lift your finger up. Plus, you can always type normally with swype.
We have devours, which have a physical keyboard so why would I want to type regularly on a touch screen...or swype on the touch screen haha.
There are a lot of times that I'm responding to a text with a short response and don't feel like opening the phone.
Try this thread on XDA.
[Mod] BlackSwype - Themed Swype (Updated 4/28 - CMEdition Skin!) - xda-developers
which would you suggest the one thats for the Droid? id assume so due to its the only other moto device listed. ill try that later today
Actually it goes by resolution. You need the one for the Eris. They have the same resolution.
that makes sense thanks!
awesome got it working, really cool feature
LOL interesting seeing you over here?
