Sorry to go double custom keyboards on you this week, but these just couldn’t wait any longer…

The creator behind the HTC_IME theme for Swype that was posted last week is back for more with a whole lineup of color-themed awesomeness.  And while the previous theme we posted was for rooted users only, these new themes are for everyone.  That’s right, everyone with a Motorola Droid can install these.


1.  Download one of the following themes to your SD card and unzip:

Download: Black with Blue Theme

Download: Black with Green Theme

Download: Black with Red Theme

Download: Black with Gold Theme

2.  Uninstall any previous versions of Swype.
3.  Open the apk that you just downloaded and install.
4.  Go into Settings>Language & keyboard> and make sure Swype is checked.
5.  Calibrate if needed.
6.  Open a text field, long press, select “input method” and then select Swype.
7.  Enjoy!

*Note 1* – For those of you who had previously installed the HTC_IME theme, you will need to remove the Swype apk from your system>app folder before you can complete these instructions.

And remember that the stock Swype is always available through our downloads page.

Pretty cool right?  Let us know if you run into any issues!

Cheers Tony (sh0ebox) for putting these together!  Amazing work.
