Is there anyway to get Swype from outside the Market? Its not available there, and I see its already running on Droid X, so I was thinking it'd probably work on Droid as well.
Check this out:
There is a download link, and step-by-step instructions for installing the beta.
Swype has just released a second beta, but I believe this is only for those who were on the beta before.
Nevertheless, you can try it here: http://beta.swype.com/
To install Swype, you install the "Swype installer" which will authenticate you as a valid user and then download and install the actual Swype APK. They are keeping tight control over the actual Swype APK.
There is no lawful way - you can download an apk of the production version on the internet but this is piracy and so unlawful and the beta has expired. You either need to have it preinstalled on your phone (like with the samsung galaxy s) or buy it from their site (which I can't see how to do - it is not on the market, at least not for my htc desire).
There are many other free swype alternatives on the market but I can't remember them off the top of my head.
