Swype Officially Comes To The N8

The first Symbian^3 version of Swype hit the Ovi Store with support for the Nokia C7 a while back, but a similar version with support for the N8 has only hit the store today. Previously if you wanted to get Swype on your N8, you had to go about it in a roundabout manner, however now you can simply search for it and install.

Swype Officially Comes To The Nokia N8 Via The Ovi Store

If you already have the C7 version installed, I’d suggest uninstalling that and downloading the N8 version afresh. The file is a 3.3 MB download, but curiously it is only 7MB when installed compared to the 10MB install of the C7 version with no visible difference in settings. By default Ovi Store preferences has installs set to the 16GB inbuilt memory, but I suggest you make an exception and install Swype to the phone memory.

The current version supports English, Spanish, FrenchCA and PortugueseBr with more language support expected soon. Incase you are wondering, there is no portrait mode, that’s only coming in 2011.

  1. must select writing language as English to use, doesn’t work with default input as English while writing language as Chinese for example.

  2. Hey i am not going to be all that original in this comment, so all i am going to say that your website is cool, sad that I don’t have great writing talent Thanks once more for taking the time to put this up. I certainly loved every part of it.

  3. Thanks for your article. One other thing is that often individual states have their very own laws in which affect home owners, which makes it extremely tough for the the nation’s lawmakers to come up with a different set of recommendations concerning foreclosure on homeowners. The problem is that every state features own laws which may interact in a damaging manner when it comes to foreclosure insurance plans.
