Don't wait, get Swype now!

swypeSwype is an app for Android which enables users to use their on-screen keyboard in a whole new way. By dragging your finger across the keyboard over the letters in the word you want to write, Swype will recognise the characters and in turn the word you're spelling which helps to speed up your day-to-day writing 10-fold!

Here are videos demoing what the app can do: [broken]

Swype are in a beta [broken] at the moment, for a short while they're allowing new signups [broken] so if you're fast you can sign up now [broken]! Once you have signed up, generally you'll have to wait until Swype contact you before you can get the app, well since Swype have told me my phone is not compatible with their software (my resolution is too low) and as such banned me from having it, here's the mail for those of you who are waiting to hear back from them for how to install:

Follow the link below, download the installer and then sign in with your user/pass and you could have access much sooner than if you waited on their mail.

You're welcome! swyping
