    Will SWYPE work on the EVO? I was wondering if anyone already has it on your EVO and if so can you share your experience with it.

    I'm not sure about Swype right now.. But there is similar app.. Like.. ShapeWriter and SwipeIT.

    Yes Swype works perfectly on Evo right now. Though you'll have to hunt down the APK since this board prohibits people from sharing that info.. it's not that hard tho

    I just got it!! I can't wait to put it on my new EVO friday. How does it look in landscape mode since the EVO is a larger screen?

    no it doesnt have swype standard. you have to get he apk for the incredible. it works decent in veritcal mode, not so well in horizontal mode cause of how big the phone is. also you lose your mic button/function. its only on the htc/android keyboard

    1. It is officially on the market
    2. a major factor that I have noticed with both Swype and SlideIT It's the emory usage. Swype 9.19 MB and SlideIT only 1.85 MB
    3. SlideIT has shortcuts, you type afk and it types

    About a month ago I sent an email to Swype asking about their Adroid beta program. (which is currently closed) I told them it would be approx a month before I got my Android phone. Below is the reply I rec'd....

    Yes, it's the first thing I hope to put on my EVO. (When I get one) Hopefully they'll be re-releasing the Adroid beta version again soon. In the mean time, go here:

    Swype | Text Input for Screens

    Click on "mySwype" and check out some of the Tutorials on how to Swype capitals, puntuation, apostrophys, add words to the dictionary, etc.

    I went into a Verizon store about a month ago to change my plan, and while waiting to be called, I played with Swype on their Omnia 2 display phone. I was blown away. I was hoping they wouldn't call me.

    So now I'm; "Patiently/Impatiently waiting for my HTC EVO 4G phone to be released.

    I think it was just a beta. Now it's closed. You can register on their website and get notified when the beta reopens.
    I'm am not sure though. Don't take my word for it.

    This worked great and I'm Swyping away. I think I love my phone even more now if that's possible. I have small hands and always have trouble texting with the EVO. That's a thing of the past now!
