We told you
this was coming: Swype
has just made it possible for any Android handset owner to download their innovative touch-screen enabled text-input application
straight from the website
. Which means a whole lot of people can henceforth start challenging that Guinness World Record
for speedy textin' using Swype.
Up until today, Swype came pre-installed on only a fraction of available Android phones (including the all new Motorola Droid X
) due to its licensing business model, although the company did open up to 25,000 eager beta testers a couple of months ago - most of whom seem to have completely fallen in love with it.
Well, anyone can download it now, but only for a limited time (a couple of days) and with a somewhat limited feature set. Important: it won't work if you have a phone that came pre-installed with Swype and support will be via Swype's forums only.
