Officially launched only for Windows Mobile (with Verizon’s Samsung Omnia II being the first smartphone to get it), Swype is also available for Android, in a preview version – although, at the moment, it only works with phones that have WVGA displays, like the Motorola Droid / Milestone.
With Swype, users can input text faster and easier, using only one continuous finger (or stylus) motion across the soft keyboard.
To download Swype for Android, head on over to DroidMuff.in. You’ll also find instructions for installing and using it there.
There’s no word on when the official Swype app for Android will be launched, but it shouldn’t be long until this happens.The official app will most probably support all Android phones, as this video preview from MobileCrunch indicates (Swype works here on Verizon’s Droid Eris):
