With the keyboard now being official, it comes with a price of US$0.99 on Google Play. The current price is apparently for a limited time only, so Swype users are urged to download it now before they start to hike up the price.

Swype Keyword is a popular custom keyboard on Android that lets you type faster than normal QWERTY keyboard tapping. However Android 4.0 users had been left out from the fun as it could only support devices with Android 2.3/3.0.

Swype, the fast custom keyboard for Androids now has another update. Apart from your typical fast predictive input from a single motion on a screen, Swype now has several new gesture based features.
Now you can perform advanced actions such as copy, paste, cut and select all on Swype. Just Swype from the Swype Icon to either C (Copy), V (Paste) or X (Cut). To Select all, just swype from Swype Icon to A. There are other shortcuts as well, like Swyping from the icon to TW for Twitter or to GM for Google Maps.
For the majority that uses custom words or uncommon short forms, Swype now has a Personal Dictionary section where you can input and remove new words easily. This is pretty useful especially when getting rid of unwanted added new words.
To download, head to Swype Beta page here. Note: The new beta won’t work with devices that already have Swype pre-installed.
Our favourite keyboard Swype, is a must download for every Android device that we use. It offers typing with just a single stroke movement across the keyboard with a single finger, making it the fastest way to type long text and sms while on the go.
Although it works great on small handheld smart phones, we can’t say the same for tablet usage. We had tried Swype or equivalent style of inputs on the Galaxy Tab, HTC Flyer and ASUS Eee Pad Transformer, and we felt the usability of it gets less practical due to its larger screen and it gets worse when you’re on landscape mode. We have always wondered, what’s the point of having full width swyping keyboard for tablets when they can just maintain a small one for shorter distance of swyping. Now it seems that Swype has finally solved that with the upcoming Swype 3.0 which is slated to kick start its Beta anytime soon.
On Swype 3.0, they have optimised their keyboard for Android 3.X Honeycomb tablets, which offers both full width and a smaller sized keyboard which would go easy on the fingers. To add more flexibility, the mini-sized swype keyboard is movable to either left, centre or right side of the screen. For the full QWERTY keyboard typist, there’s also a predictive tap feature which automatically detects your typing pattern and corrects them immediately.
Right now the Beta download page is not available but you can check this link later of the day.
