If it was through the Google Play Store, the phone/tablet must be tied to the same Google account. A number of ways to install: use Play Store app to search for app again; via My Apps - All; or even via web on PC or device if the device is signed into one's Google account.

If through the Amazon AppStore, one needs the their app installed and signed into the Amazon account (purchased apps are installed from My Apps - Cloud).

Hi Golden-Boy.

It sounds like you've just got to set the full version as your keyboard. You can do this by finding "Swype + Dragon" in your application tray or by the following steps:

1. Enter a text field
2. Pull down your device's notification bar (from top of screen)
3. Select "Choose input method"
4. Select Swype + Dragon

Note: If you don't see "Swype + Dragon" in the list of available options, check your device Language and input settings (Settings > Language and Input ) and make sure that it is enabled.

You're set!

In Settings I do not see Swype + Dragon. The only thing I see is Swype + Dragon Trial. And when I click it there is no option in it to get to the keyboard. However, your other method to get to the keyboard worked, but again, there was no option for Swype + Dragon. Only options are Samsung and Swype + Dragon Trial.

Alright Golden-Boy,

It sounds like you've made the purchase, but have not yet downloaded Swype. Did you purchase Swype using a web browser or did you use the Amazon Appstore app?

Well if I didn't download it, how have I been using the free trial for the past month?

It turns out you were right. Too bad they never said after I bought it I would need to download the permanent version. Would have saved me some hassle, but thanks for helping me out. I now have Swype + Dragon installed.
