Beta Test This: Swype!

Swype, the gesture-based virtual keyboard that to date has only been legitimately available to OEMs, just sent beta testing invitations out to Android users who’d previously provided their email address to them.

The beta, starting today, March 5, is limited to a small number of participants but will expand “soon.” It’s a limited feature set compared to the OEM version and will work for devices with HVGA and WVGA displays.

    Shapewriter is available in non-beta form, and does much the same thing. It’ll be interesting to see which turns out to be the better gesture-based keyboard.

    I've just installed it, it's taking a bit of getting used to but looks like it might be a good way to enter long words very quickly, not sure how much time it saves just doing short ones though.
