    That's pretty slick, do you know if the manual is online anywhere? Would be easier then trying to read it on the phone.

    I installed it tonight...what a great way to text on my Droid in vertical mode which had been impossible due to my big fat fingers until now.
    I am no longer an employee of VZW, I left on good terms and still think VZW is the best network in the U.S. and most helpful CSR's in any industry.

    I really dig portrait, but I have serious problems with landscape.

    I know what you mean but since I have fat fingers and never was able to really use portrait mode with the standard, Swype fixes that problem for me. This is a neat little keyboard alternative.

    Perhaps they should add an option that turns swype off in landscape mode.

    Hopefully a beta release for the G1, MT3G, Hero, and Eris will follow shortly.

    You can still type normally on the keyboard, you're not required to "swype" your words in.

    Watched the tutorial videos then installed...I absolutely love it. Had no problems using it in either portrait or landscape mode. I had been primarily using the physical keyboard, as I found the virtual keyboard to be too inaccurate (never had issues with my Dare's virtual keyboard), but I think that's about to change...Swype is awesome!
    DROID DOES
