Swype just got done announcing version 3.0, bringing with it some very neat features including tablet support, tap correction, and horizontal word choice. After looking for it on the Swype site, we couldn’t find anything, so we checked in with our contact over there – Community Relations guru, Brian Resnik who had this to say:
So, we’re going through some last minute checks to make sure everything is rock solid before we push the new version live. This is a big launch for us, and we want to make sure all of the problems people have had in the past have been duly addressed. Particularly, we’re making sure that the annoying “license failed on reboot” bug is permanently squashed. We’re currently uploading the latest packages to our servers, switching the website over to the latest version, and doing a final round of testing before we flip the switch and start pushing out the new version. All said, we should have v3.0 ready to download in about 1-2 hoursUpdate: If you’ve been refreshing the beta download page at Swype, you’ve probably seen the latest update on the status of this. If not, here’s the latest from Swype:
BETA DELAYED BECAUSE:
a) We forgot to buy vowels
b) Our beta build server crashed
c) Upper management kept accelerating the beta schedule
d) All of above !#@$!&
No word on when to expect it, we’ll tell you as soon as we hear something.
