    I just downloaded the swype beta today and I'm wondering what settings are you guys using. I watched the video of swype and my swype doesn't behave the same. When I type a word then move over to the spacebar then move to type another word it doesn't recognize the space. I need to swype a word, then lift off the touchscreen so it inputs the word then use a space then swype the next word. Its pretty slow and I'm wondering why space doesn't work when using it in the same motions as a swiped word

    You can have Swype do auto space after each word. Go to Language & Keyboard >>Swype (Swype Setting)>>Check Auto-Spacing.

    I'm liking Swype more and more. I do wish it has arrow keys though, unless I missed it somewhere :)

    You did miss it ;)

    Swype from the swype button (lower left) right over to the SYM button. You'll access the direction-key and tools panel.

    To get to Swype's arrow keys, swipe from the lower left key (the one with the white-circled "i" on it) to the key to its immediate right (the one with "SYM" on it). You will get a full cursor control keyboard.

    It's available via their website only, in beta form. The beta is currently closed, you can sign up to be notified when they reopen it, which seems to be every couple of weeks.

    Here is the website address: Swype | Text Input for Screens
