Swype Beta for Android opens up to all – download your copy now

Swype Beta for Android opens up to all - download your copy now

We’ve been huge fans of Swype’s revolutionary text input system, but until now only those who registered early for the beta trials were able to bag themselves a copy.

All that has changed, with Swype now inviting Android users to head over to their site in double quick time, register for the beta, and then be rewarded with a download link.

Best virtual keyboard

Easily the best way to type on an Android screen – and any other phone, come to think of it – Swype lets you bang out words a-plenty with one continuous finger motion rather than pecking away at a tiny onscreen keyboard.

That said, it’s still worth reading their FAQ before you start getting all smudgy with your phone’s screen as it takes a little getting used to before you get the hang of it.

We definitely recommend giving it a go – register here.

Here the details of the latest beta:

  • Now includes support for Double-Tap-to-Edit, Cursor Restore, and Voice-to-Text (requires Google Voice Search be included in your system firmware)
  • HVGA, WVGA, and WVGA854 Resolutions – don’t worry we’ll detect this automatically. Sorry, no QVGA
  • Limited End User Support – mostly via our forum
  • If your phone came pre-installed with Swype
    DO NOT download this beta (it won’t work)
  • [Swype]
