New Version of Swype Includes Gestures and Quick Twitter, Facebook and Google Maps Launching – Available Now To Nexus S 4G

If things seem to be a little quiet on the Swype front these days, it is probably because they have been working extra hard behind the scenes with carriers and phone manufacturers to introduce a handful of new features.  Sprint Nexus S 4G owners have the opportunity to download a new version (3.25.91) today, before the general public.  The Swype team has added in gestures to make for easy copy, cut, and selecting, as well as a way to quickly launch some of your favorite apps like Twitter, Facebook and Google Maps.

The plan is to roll this out to NS4G owners first (download here) and then make it available to everyone in their beta program “soon.”

What are your current thoughts on Swype?  Was certainly one of the top keyboards of 2010, but now we have so many incredible options to choose from like Swiftkey, FlexT9 and A.I.Type.
