Default Swype Beta for Android

Accidentally posted this in the General forum (

Sign up now! (need to use your Android google email...)

Unfortunately, for 320x240, you get "Swype is unavailable in this screen size", but you may be able to boot up in 480x320, install, and then change back...

1. The Swype Beta Details

The beta starts on March 5th 2010 and is capped at a limited number of registrants.

This beta version will expire after 3 months as we will provide periodic updated versions that will include new features and functionality.

The beta software supports phones with HVGA (480h x 320w), WVGA (800h x 480w) and WVGA854(854h x 480w) screen sizes.

The beta software has built-in dictionaries for English and Spanish. We plan on releasing other languages at a later time, but the download file would be too large to include more languges right now.

For security reasons you can only download the beta software a limited number of times.

This is a BETA and is not a fully functional version of Swype. Specifically, it only has English and Spanish and we have an editing method which is not supported in a downloadable version. Also, we have found that to truly integrate a soft keyboard on a phone, it needs to be pre-loaded. Thus, you may experience some aberrant behavior. Again, this is a BETA.

The beta is open to all phones using Android which DO NOT already have Swype pre-installed by the phone manufacturer / carrier.

If you have Swype pre-installed on your phone DO NOT attempt to install this beta of Swype!
