Swype Beta for Galaxy Nexus (w/ Landscape Support)!
Here I present my latest fix/update to swype for the galaxy nexus. It includes fully working portrait and landscape modes!
Note: You may have to uninstall the old swype first to get this one to install. Also you may need to disable swype as an input and and then enable it and select it.
