Swype beta updated.

My favourite keyboard app for Android (is it on the iphone? I’ve no idea…) has just been updated.

Details at the bottom of this post.

For those that don’t know, swype is a keyboard where you ‘swype’ your finger over the keyboard across the letters of the word,without taking your finger off the keyboard ,it is clever enough to know what you mean and correct mis-swypes!

Personally I’m completely lost without it and it’s the first thing I re-install if I’ve been mucking around with my phone (Flashing Roms etc)

Interestingly, it is looks like the test Beta is currently OPEN ! So go register now!
