    I like the beta better. I was using the lite version for a week or so before jumping to the beta. To me, it seems faster and less buggy.

    Lite all the way.

    Since the beta is closed at this time anyway, it's the only version around.

    That being said, it's unofficial, and not supported. I use it every day though. I think it's faster than the official versions, except for multiple-keying of the same letter.

    I used the lite version and now I'm using the beta. I don't really notice that much of a difference to be honest. Just go with what Paul said... how could a guy who looks that good all wet with his shirt off be wrong??? :p

    I signed up for the beta and downloaded it just in case they figure out a way to expire the Lite version. I haven't used it. I am still using the Lite version and I have no problems with it.

    I was using lite and switched to beta when it came out. I can't see any real difference except the color of the word choice box.

    go to start a new thread and put Swype in the title. It will give you a list of swype related posts. New version is swype beta but I think I like the Lite version better. It will be under a post called Swype available for eris. If you want beta just type in swype beta.

    I'm using Swype BETA on leak 2.1, I've found myself tapping more and more rather than sliding just because the sliding isn't the greatest especially for short words... At least it can go both ways lol, and I like the smiley faces. :)

    I'm a drifter.. here and there.
    I'm using SlideIT right now. A little strange, but getting used to it. I was impressed when it got Pittsburgh right away. That sold me to at least try it out.
