Swype ICS update just
It has been far too long in coming, and last we heard, we were supposed to be seeing the Swype update for Ice Cream Sandwich (and more importantly, the Galaxy Nexus screen density) by the end of January. Now, it looks like we may finally see the update. 

There has been an unofficial cracked version of Swype floating around the XDA forums that not only works with Android 4.x, but brings theme support to the gesture keyboard. On February 1st, the Swype team tweeted that the next update was just "days away", but as yet it hasn't come through. The team is also promising extra "goodies" in the update, but no one is quite sure what that will be aside from Nuance's Dragon-powered dictation.

Love Swype. One of those items I truly wish WP would get off their tushes and go get instead of hoping they come to them. I am sure it will be a welcome ICS addition.

I would like to see someone hack google voice recocnition into swype. Dragon Dictation is horrible in comparison.
