View Full Version : Swype stops responding and touch input ceases

09-14-2010, 12:08 AM
My unrooted Sprint Hero using Android 2.1 and Swype version has an issue where the Swype stops responding to swypes or character input. Furthermore, all touch input stops. I can't select anything or scroll. My only recourse is to pull the battery to get everything working again. I have reinstalled Swype but the problem still occurs. It has happened while using several apps.

Can you try this:

Open Settings>Applications>Manage Applications>Swype
Click on Clear Cache and Clear Data
Uninstall Swype and Swype installer
Download the new beta swype installer
Install Swype Installer then follow prompts to install new Swype keyboard

I know in the last beta that Swype would start to become sluggish after awhile and the only fix was to wipe the data and reinstall it.

Thanks Ashex1. My HTC Hero on Android 2.1 is doing the same sort of thing. Ridiculously sluggish after the September update of Swype. When I Swype it can't keep up with me anymore (I'm no faster than I was with the pre-update version) and it comes up with crazy words because it's only picking up on a few of the letters in my path.
