Many of you might know about an application called ‘Swype’. It’s a software keyboard replacement for various devices. Because many people are struggling to get it to work on the HTC EVO 4G, XDA member TheBiles decided to make an ‘idiot-proof’ guide. The tutorial is extremely well-illustrated and shows step-to-step instructions with screenshots on how to install Swype on the EVO.

XDA member ajftl posted the Incredible version of Swype which works great on the EVO. Some feedback from other users:

Swype is a really good alternative for the standard HTC keyboard, so it’s definitely worth trying out. The guide should also work fine with the HTC Incredible and the Google Nexus One.
