Swype Beta September 2010 Update!<p>We're pleased to announce that as of 7PM EST tonight, we've begun rolling out our latest beta update. This update is for existing users only. We will not be opening the beta test to additional members at this time. Current users will begin receiving emails shortly. Please DO NOT try to update until you've gotten an email. You won't be able to, and it will only slow the down the system.</p><p>Users will receive their emails in chronological order based on the date of registration.</p><p>ATTENTION: You must uninstall the old SwypeInstaller and Swype packages from your device before upgrading.</p><p>If you have problems with the installation, see our FAQ (http://beta.swype.com/android/faq), then head to this thread on the forums (http://forum.swype.com/showthread.php?994-HOW-TO-READ-ME-FIRST-Get-BETA-for-Android-troubleshooting-help) for more information on getting help.</p><p></p><p style="font-size:13px;"><i>--Changes in this version of Swype--</i>
