Swype for Android

The uber-popular Swype keyboard just got a pretty major update, and we think you're going to like this one. No talking, just bullet points:

  • The hidden word tip window is "all but completely removed." Huzzah! You'll see it one time (and one time only, Swype says) after a new installation. So it won't be bugging you any time you uncover a new word.
  • Contact names that are automatically added to the user dictionary will now stay deleted instead of being re-added accidentally
  • Prediction accuracy won't degrade over time
  • Support for QVGA, WQVGA, WSVGA and qHD touchscreens.
  • Dictionaries for Dutch, UK English and Russian

We'd say that's a pretty big update. If you're already in on the beta program, just go to http://beta.swype.com/android/get to update. There are a couple more details you might want to check out -- including for those of you who like to change ROMs frequently. Hit up the source link. [Swype]
