I currently have the Swype beta installed on my EVO - not the pre-installed one that comes with the newer updates, the actual beta from their site. I noticed yesterday that if I launch the Swype Installer it will check for updates to itself, then download and install the new version for me. This is nice, since it is not distributed in the Market.
However, I can't seem to find the same functionality in Swype itself. The Installer doesn't check for updates to the actual keyboard, and it just greets me with the "Congrats! Swype is installed!" screen after launch (even after updating). The only way I can figure out to update Swype at this point is to:
- Find out if there's a new version somehow (Google, Swype's website, etc)
- Uninstall Swype
- Reinstall Swype
Is there an easier way to do this? It seems odd that they have no update feature built in since they deliberately chose to distribute Swype outside of the Market, but if such a feature does exist I have no idea where it is.
