Download: Swype Beta for Motorola DROID

Forum member BloodiedWraith hooked us up late last night with Swype Beta which is the newest version available.  And when we say “hooked up” we mean a version that is installable without an installer or a registration email.  This is as straight up of an app installation as you’ll find.  He sent me a message last night thanking the Droid Life community for all that it has done and wanted to give back.   I’d say he more than gave back.  Enjoy and be sure to thank him back!

Download:  Removed by request from Swype.

(Of course there are plenty of spots to find them near by.)


1.  Uninstall all previous versions of Swype beta and reboot your phone.
2.  Find the .apk file you downloaded from above, tap on it and install.
3.  Enjoy!


Again, this community just amazes me more each day.  It’s been a full 10 months now and we’re as strong of a community as ever.  Thanks everyone for making this the most enjoyable Droid spot on the planet!

  • Eddiegu

    Any way of getting these colors more an EVO?

  • Khyzzer123

    How do you get the different colored ones?

  • Ronmarkey

    Anyone else have a problem getting this to work? I had the old beta and uninstalled and rebooted so that I could install the red one, but can't get it to show up in Input Methods. I have tried downloading it directly to the phone and also downloading it to my pc and transferring and then using astro to kick it off. Five attempts, no joy.

    • Geoff

      make sure you enable swype in the settings from your homescreen. settings>keyboard. check to enable.

      Then it should be listed as an input method.

      • Ronmarkey

        Yep, that was it Geoff. I hadn't had to do that for a while and had forgotten about that step. Thanks!

  • DukeTop

    I'd like a Dark Blue and Black one. actually, i have the pngs made, i just cant figure out for to re-sign the apk.

  • bigred503

    A beta is a beta, is it “official “… NOT… I'ts a beta!!! use any apk you like, Beautiful Widgets will load as if you downloaded from the market…try loading a PAID APK…Check your coding…your phone..

    We all know anything can be hacked but what is the percentage off people on this forum who can do this????
