After the last reboot of my Droid 1 running 2.2, Swype has stopped fully working. I can touch-type, but swyping itself (dragging my finger across the keyboard to write words) doesn't. Uninstalling, downloading a new installer, and running it has not fixed the problem.

Any suggestions?

Found this resolved the same issue for me:

"It sounds to me like you're experiencing a rare case of an old bug floating around. Fortunately, there's a simple workaround. When you see this error, try switching your Input Method back to the stock keyboard (by long-pressing any text box and choosing "Input Method"), then back to Swype."

Thanks bp88ma. That's exactly the response for this issue :)

Problem solved - it turned out to be an app cache issue. When I was following the above steps, I re-installed the app, found it didn't work, then when I went to un-install it I noticed the Clear Cache button. Cleared the cache, then un-installed, then re-installed, and voila!
