The Swype keyboard has been incredibly popular, despite not being openly (or legally, for that matter) available for download for Android. But Swype just opened up a beta program for our beloved platform. Here's what you need to know:
- Go here to register for the beta program.
- The beta test is open to a limited number of people. (So sign up now.)
- English and Spanish for now.
- This version is limited, compared to what you get when Swype is built in to a phone.
- HVGA and WGVA resolutions only.
- Support is done via forums.
- And if you already have Swype (like on a new T-Mobile Android Phone), don't download this one. It work work.
There you go, folks. Give her a go. [Swype]
