Tutorial: How to Install Swype Keyboard on HVGA Device

This is a tutorial how to install Swype Keyboard application onto any Android device (HVGA) such as G1, myTouch 3G, Hero etc. It's should work on any Android 1.5 and above.
Download your Swype Keyboard from XDA Developer.


  1. Hi everyone,

    We would like to provide an update regarding the unauthorized distribution of our Swype software for the Android platform. We realize that many sites are now distributing this software and several are providing installation instructions.

    We are glad that you like Swype, but we did not release or leak it for distribution and do not currently support any downloadable versions.

    There are now two devices that ship with the Swype keyboard pre-installed: the Verizon Samsung Omnia II on Windows Mobile and, more recently, the T-Mobile MyTouch 3G. We’re very excited about these releases, and there will be a number of new device launches in the near future. Because our partners are highly sensitive about their product releases, we really cannot say anything further. But a lot of work goes into making sure that Swype integrates perfectly with each device we release and by comparison, any leaked or hacked version of our software will work improperly or not at all.

    One might ask why we don't just release it ourselves and save everyone the hassle? The reason is that we have spent seven years building Swype and our business model at present is OEM licensing. We do plan to get to direct-to-consumer distribution, but it is a different sort of business with unique challenges and thus it is hard to say when.

    Stay tuned (and provide feedback) on our forum at


    The Swype Team

    PS. Our lawyer has asked us to remind everyone that Swype does not explicitly or implicitly condone the unauthorized copying and distribution of the Swype software and to inform you that the Swype software is proprietary to Swype, Inc., is the copyrighted work of Swype, Inc., and Swype, Inc. has and always will reserve all of its rights.

  2. i have an htc mytouch and it says i have swype but will not enable it when i select it

  3. what if i dont have the my touch 3g can i still get swype

  4. Now that Froyo is out, why is there still no Swype on my phone (original MyTouch)?
