Swype beta lets Android 4 get alt keyboard

Swype has updated its beta track to answer a common request from Android 4.0 users for support. The early version lets Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S, and some tablet owners get the swipe-based text recognition as well as catch up on recent features. It should include DragonGo voice commands as well as downloadable languages on tablets.

The team has improved the accuracy for swipe recognition as one of its background fixes. Moving to beta does, however, drop Android 1.6 and 400x240 resolution support.

As a beta, it sits outside of Android Market and will likely still have bugs. Swype hasn't made a definitive pledge as to when its keyobard add-on will be ready. It cautions that anyone whose phone was bundled with Swype should avoid the beta, as it wouldn't load and wouldn't give them an easy way to back out to an earlier version.
