New Swype 3.0 released for beta testing, adds Honeycomb support

Swype, the popular alternative Android keyboard is has been updated to version 3.0. This version, although only a beta at the moment, brings new features to the popular swiping keyboard. Two of the major changes in version 3.0 are Tap Correction and Horizontal Word Choice List. Tap Corrections allows you to seamlessly go from typing to swyping and back without missing a beat. With the Horizonal Word Choice List, the popup word choice window is no longer available. Instead, possible words will be presented in a horizontal line, above the keyboard, which is pretty much the standard way of displaying possible word choices in Android keyboards.

A special Honeycomb-only WXGA version for Android tablets features a movable and resizable keyboard.
