A few weeks ago, the App of the Week was FlexT9, a keyboard that could do it all. Most notably was the ability to swipe or tap the words out. Swype on the other hand has never really had the option to tap out words. You could, but there was no predictive text or autocorrect which made it a headache. It made it impossible for me to warrant using it because of the pain typing in URLs was in the browser. Now Swype 3.0 Beta introduces predictive tap-typing.
Swype also has a special ability in its latest beta build for resizable keyboards on Honeycomb tablets like the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 10.1v. In fact they demoed it on a 10.1. The smaller version of the keyboard can be moved left to right depending on how you prefer to type.
This Beta may not work on the original Galaxy Tab is it already has Swype preinstalled on it.
If your phone came pre-installed with Swype
DO NOT download this beta (it won’t work)
If you are rocking a Swype-free version or a Galaxy Tab 10.1, then give it a download.
