    June Swype expiring soon. Maybe that's it, if you're a registered beta membet you can catch any update on the swype site. I am a member, I'll check and get back to you.

    Slylust, yeah me neither. I have to tick on the word then hit the swype key to force word recognition.

    Thanks. I checked the beta page last night, but couldn't find anything. When I just checked this morning, I saw that there was a beta update. I grabbed it and it installed fine. I am working again with Swype. Appreciate it.

    I checked just now and they are still only listing the Current (June) download. Where did you find an update?

    Thought I would give this a Bump since Evo now has Swype as a stock option.

    Wow, thanks for bumping. I have been using Swype for months now, knew I could get the alternate symbol layout but longpressing the sym button, but not the f/5 bit. I have dumped Swype a few times in favor of a keyboard that has directional arrows, but always gone back. I never knew about that trick. Makes it that much better!

    I just really wish they'd add double-space for period insert like most other keyboards out there. I know it's a matter of preference, but there's no reason we can't have both ways.

    Awesome! Thanks for this, I've been missing the arrow keys since moving to Swype.

    Seriously, I wish i saw this thread much sooner. Not knowing about the arrow keys has been very frustrating.

    Hey, I am trying to figure out how to spell check an SMS text message. You mention that you set speed to max and worry about typos later when you run a spell check. How, exactly, to you access a spell check function? The way you describe the process it doesn't sound like a pain in the ass at all. Please save me from my typo-hell... Thanks!

    Sorry, re-read my post. At the end I do "My spell check". Unfortunately there's not a system check to run. I simply read over what I've typed.

    Any word that is incorrect, double-tap and Swype should offer alternative options. I find it's still quicker to go this was so you're not back and fourth swyping, reading, swyping, reading, correcting, reading, swyping, reading..

    On a side note, recommend you try SlideIT from the market. It is far superior to Swype IMHO.
