    You'll have to buy it when it's released. I'm not sure why it isn't released already since other phones have it preinstalled.

    menu>settings>keyboard> select swype.

    THEN

    go into a text msg box and press hold in the field, until "input method" pops up select it then select swype

    Nope, haven't had a need to go to landscape since I discovered Swype. It's much too easy in portrait. :)

    Glad you got it installed, this its a must-have app for me.

    For others, if you go to that link with the evo, you can download it directly and install it.

    I'm so used to texting and navigating websites in landscape, this could be a rough transition

    I'll try it out and see but may try to revert to a newer version of the Droid X keyboard, I was really happy with that one (other than it's failure to capitalize i, what an odd problem to have)

    That's funny actually because I hated doing the landscape mode, even with my Touch Pro. I had horrible problems with the virtual keyboard on the Evo before Swype that I was using my Blackberry on my other acct to text people. But when I got Swype, I got rid of the BB and now I'm golden.

    I've been using swype since I got the evo, and I know people swear by it. But just for kicks, I went back to shapewriter ( which i used to use on my Hero ) and man, shapewriter is so much sicker than swype imo.
    I know people swear by swype and claim its more accurate but i type waaay faster on shapewriter and would suggest anyone having problems or not liking swype to give it a shot.

    Shapewriter seems to be just like swype.... I really didn't like swype at first but now that i've got used to it, I love it!

    At first, Swype didn't work after I loaded 2.2, but then I uninstalled Swype, went to original email with the beta version download link, reinstalled it, and it works just as well as it did on 2.1. I'm addicted to Swype and hope it will continue on the Evo.

    You mean there are other keyboard alternatives than Swype? ....:)

    Swype on 2.2 works Great and I personally will never use another keyboard.

    Love Android you can customize any way you want to make it personalized.

    Just delete it, reinstall it. That is all you have to do.

    I opted in for the beta but it was after they closed it, i found a link here on the forums but after installing it i got an error saying that it was for a different size screen, I went searching again and found a link to another EVO forum in a thread on this forum called "i want Skype" downloaded and installed and it works excellent, I never knew what i was missing! Skype is my keyboard for sure, and I'll be buying it for sure.
