I found a couple .apk's that don't seem to work. Does anyone know where I can find Swype for my Evo?
Swype | Text Input for Screens
I got version 188.8.131.5225.t100 to work great.
Looking to try swype also... that link doesn't work. Any other suggestions?
I had swype before rooting my Eris, its still showing up as installation complete but when I choose to use it instead of the default one on my phone it won't let me. Does it work on rooted phones?
Please don't link to Swype apk's. If you want it you need to signup for the beta.
Yup -- see post #2.
tried the link with n1. but after installing it is telling me wrong screen resolution. typing works but swypeing does not work. any ideas? thanks.
Apologies. I just read the moderators comment. My link was only used by myself because I messed up my beta version. How? I'll tell you.
After Swype is installed and you flash a new ROM, you might find that Swype is not working correctly. You can tap, but Swyping just causes a blue outline around the keyboard with no textual result.
The solution, as I found out too late, is to go to Applications | Manange, and clear the cache for Swype.
What I was doing is reinstalling Swype every single time. Eventually, I got a message that said, "You've installed Swype too many times" and I was cut off. So I found the apk and installed it.
So beware of installing your beta too many times.
