Using unreleased swype on your Android

I have only tried this on my HTC EVO, and it works wonderfully.


  1. Download the apk file to your phone
  2. Enable "Unknows Sources" in Settings -> Applications
  3. Using a file browser like Astro, open up the apk file and install Swype
  4. Go to Settings-> Language & keyboards to enable swype
  5. In a text area, long press the text area and it will allow you to set the input method

It definitely takes some getting used to, but I believe Swype is the most efficient method of inputting text on the Android.
