Swype 3.0 Beta out now.

Swype, the keyboard where you swipe your fingers across the keys rather than type, it’s a bit like marmite, you either love or hate it!

Personally I love it, I’ve been using it for nearly as long as I’ve had a smartphone…. so I’m quite looking forward to the update that is apparently due out just about now.


Edit:

Swype have replied to my question about if we will be notified via email, their reply is pasted below.

Swype 3.0 Beta out now.

 

What’s new in Swype 3.0:

  • Tap Correction:You’ve always been able to jump back and forth between swiping through letters and tapping letters one-by-one; now you can do the latter without losing the autocorrect/predictive functionality that comes with swiping.
  • Horizontal Word Choice: When there are multiple possible words for the letters you just swiped through, the options will be shown in a sliding horizontal bar above the keyboard as opposed to the strange popup selection window that Swype has had for a while.
  • Available for devices with HVGA, WVGA, FWVGA, QVGA, WQVGA, WSVGA, qHD screen sizes
  • A special Honeycomb-only WXGA version for Android tablets, which features a resizable and moveable keyboard

    Yep, downloaded newest version on my HD2 (using a Nexus One SD variant of Android 2.2) and haven’t really noticed any difference yet. Time will tell I suppose…

    Hmmm, looks like I was totally lying (ducks and blames early morning). Seems all I did was download a more recent version of the swype beta 2 rather than swype 3. Oh well, I await with joyful anticipation…

    It went live about 4 hours after I posted this last night, if you go to Swypes website you can download it there. The Beta is also open again I believe.

    All good now! You have to uninstall your previous version of ths swype beta and then it lets you download the newest one. Will take a little bit of getting used to but from this (my first typing with it!)little bit of type it’s all good… ;-)
