Swype gestures hit Google Nexus S 4G in test

Swype this morning is offering a special promo to give Google Nexus S 4G owners first access to a new feature. Billed as App Gestures, the method lets users glide from the Swype key to other parts of the keyboard to cut, copy, and paste ,or else to put text in an app. At first, owners can move text either into Google Maps or into a new Twitter update.

The keyboard gets updates independently of the gestures, such as auto-capitalizing proper names as well as control over personal dictionaries.

Nexus S 4G owners get the Swype overlay from the company's website starting at 9AM Eastern. Swype hasn't said how soon the regular Nexus S or other phones can get the new updates. The early access is a Sprint promo and a rarity for an Android software update.
