Swype 3.0, the latest beta of a keyboard replacement app found in many Android phones, features two new notable features. It introduces predictive text for tapping, not just swiping, and a horizontal word choice list (following the Android model) that replaces the app's previous pop-up window for narrowing down your word selections.

A special version of Swype 3.0 for Android 3.1 Honeycomb tablets (with WXGA resolution) includes a keyboard that you can move and resize.

Although Swype is preinstalled by the manufacturer on a variety of Android phones, you can download the beta for free if your Android phone has one of the following screen resolutions: HVGA, WVGA, FWVGA, QVGA, WQVGA, WSVGA, qHD.
