Re: swype key

Swype Keyboard is in closed beta and it is not available to download right now.

Re: swype key

Some manufacturers have OEM agreements with Swype to have hte application preinstalled on the device (like the Samsung Epic 4G). The EVO does not come preloaded with Swype. Currently the only legitimate way to install Swype is to sign up for the testing at the Swype website. Any other method of installing Swype is against Swype's terms and conditions and could potentially cause more issues.

not really understanding your question but swype is just another way to text but you just slide your finger from one letter to the next to chose out the word youre looking for. most of the time it's quicker than trying to peck out the letters..and sometimes it pulls up random words that in my experience was ...uhm...not even close to what i was looking for (not putting the word it chose in here. which has never been used by myself which made it even funnier)

you can turn it off and on by pulling up a text convo and just hold your finger in the area that you put the text in. it will pull up text input. then chose swype or touch input

Here's my problem. I have the HTC Evo 4G and it comes with Swype on it. But I can't figure out how to enable it for texting or anything else. I can go into the Swype options and change them but there isn't anyway to enable it for actual use. Maybe if you know something I don't and can help me figure out how to turn it on so I can use it that would be great

Re: swype key

The Evo Shift does not come with Swype, you have to sign up for the Beta and install it on your phone...
