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.


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


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
