New Swype Beta supports Ice Cream Sandwich

Are you a fan of Samsung’s flagship Galaxy Nexus and popular 3rd party keyboard Swype? Well it’s time to celebrate as they’re about to become a match made in heaven. We brought you news last week that the developers over at Swype were working hard on an ICS update before the end of the month and they’ve delivered on that promise.

With so many top notch, 3rd party keyboards available in the Android Market, Swype’s incompatibility with ICS hadn’t gone unnoticed. The clever folks over at XDA managed to tide us over when they delivered a working, hacked version as an early Christmas present but it’s always nice to pick up the real deal.

If you’re already registered with Swype then you can head on over to their website to download the new Beta. For those of you who haven’t tried it, (you really should!) the Beta is currently open so click the link below and get registering to see what all the fuss about.

Originally from Inverness in the Highlands of Scotland, I'm now living in the UK's second city, Birmingham. I've had a passion for gadgets from a very young age, it all started with my Commodore 64 at the tender age of 2 years old. I purchased my first mobile phone aged 17 and it was from there the obsession began. Having now gone through 33 phones in 13 years it's safe to say my passion for phones is alive and well! My current phone is the Galaxy Nexus as I'm a big fan of the pure Android experience. I've been working in the Banking industry for the past 10 years and I'm currently working in Human Resources for one of the World's largest Retail Banks. I spend my spare time with my wonderful wife and young family and when I'm not fiddling with phones and tablets I can be found playing football (soccer for you guys in the States!), watching Mixed Martial Arts, tinkering with cars or listening to music.
