Demoed on the Nokia C7 at Nokia World 2010 in London, Swype for Symbian^3 is now available via the Ovi Store. Swype provides a faster and easier way to input text on any screen. With one continuous finger or stylus motion across the screen keyboard, Swype ’s patented technology enables users to input words faster and easier than other input methods. However if you have the Nokia N8, you’ll notice that Swype is not yet available for you to download in the Ovi Store. So we’ve put together a short guide after the break to help you get Swype on your Nokia N8.
Firstly you need to log in to the Ovi Store on your desktop PC and adjust the settings to change your device from the Nokia N8 to the Nokia C7. Now search for Swype or click on this link. It will now give you the option to ‘send to mobile’. Choose this option and you will shortly receive a text with a download link. Click on this link and it will take you to a screen which will now let you download Swype to your Nokia N8. Once downloaded and installed, reboot your device and Swype will be available to access within the applications folder of your device.
