The ultra popular keyboard alternative, Swype, has decided to open its doors once again for Android owners. The Swype beta program for Android has been restarted as of late yesterday.
For those of you unfamiiar with Swype, it’s the unique keyboard alternative that has been hugely popular on all platforms. Basically Swype keyboard lets you enter in characters by swiping your finger over the keys of an on-screen keyboard. You just slide your finger from letter to letter, saving tons of time in the process. Until now, it’s been almost impossible to get your hands on a working version of Swype for the Android operating system. So this is huge news for anyone who has been itching to try out Swype on their new large screen Android device.
Swype Beta for Android 18.104.22.16870 adds some new features to the already get app. They added support for double-tap-to-edit and cursor restore options, voice-to-text tool that now works with Google Voice search, and French language support.
If you want to signup for the Swype for Android beta program you should head over to beta.swype.com and register for a beta account. Remember to signup soon, the beta program is only open for a limited time, and I guarantee that it will fill up fast!
