Swype Beta Open Again For A Limited Time, Get Your Copy Now

Get Swype On Your Android Phone With the Beta 5 Release

Once again, Swype has opened their otherwise “exclusive” doors and for a short window you can pick up your copy of the Android software touch-slide-keyboard.  If you haven’t tried Swype, you should.  It is quite possibly the greatest thing to come to mobile phones since Android itself.  Sure, there are some wannabe clones in the market, but right now you can get the real deal, so don’t procrastinate.

Important: If you are on a Samsung Epic 4G or any other phone that came Swype already preinstalled do not install this beta!
