Swype sends out updated beta version for Android

Swype sends out updated beta version for Android
The latest beta version of Swype is now available for Android users. The upgrade is being sent out via e-mail to those who registered with the company before installing the swipe to type keyboard. Besides killing some bugs (including some model-specific problems), the upgrade improves the word prediction algorithim, adds German and Portuguese language support and allows  the Tips and help menu to be accessible when a password field is active to name a few.

Swype has become standard equipment on many of the new top line Android phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S and the Motorola DROID X. If your phone came with Swype pre-installed, there is no need for you to upgrade. On the other hand, if you had signed up for the keyboard's beta program, you will need to follow the e-mailed directions as the current beta version is due to expire in a few days.
