Swype now offers 'micro' build, says Evo users need to uninstall beta before latest OTA upgrade
We know how sensitive some of you are regarding app size. It's OK. It's nothing to be ashamed of, and you're not alone. And the fine folks at Swype fully sympathize and are now offering a "micro" version of the Swype keyboard. It's fully functional, just with fewer languages supported, so you get a 2.5MB install instead of a 10MB install. To get the micro version, just open the Swype Installer on your phone and accept the update.
Also, Swype has (finally) offered some help to you Evo 4G users who had problems this week. See, the 3.70.651.1 OS update that dropped this week included the Swype keyboard. So if you already were running the beta, things quickly stopped working. As many of you figured out, you need to uninstall the beta, then reboot, and all should be well. [Swype forums]

Pretend the above was my long rant of curse words. Two weeks ago I received a Samsung Intercept to replace my Moment. After being pissed/relieved, I decided it was time to put Swype back on my phone. Downloaded installer...logged in...SURPRISE!!!!My screen resolution is not supported :( I have been kicked out of the Moment & Swype clubs.
The user experience to get inside scoop on my Favorite NFL team and the matchups again just solidifies the whole experience of sports, cause when I am stuck at work, or on the go. I can still enjoy these loves of mine.
