Starting today, Sprint Nexus S 4G owners will get to download the newest version of Swype, the popular replacement keyboard for the Android OS. The updated Swype introduces a convenient feature called App Gestures, which allows you to select text and instantly send it to another app using a predetermined gesture. For instance, you can select text, then swipe from the Swype key to the letters G then M to automatically send the text to Google Maps. And with the App Gestures for Twitter and Facebook, you can send quick tweets and status updates just as easily. You'll also find new Swype shortcuts for the Select All, Cut, Copy, and Paste commands, as well as new personal dictionary management and better handling of proper nouns.

Check out Swype's promo video to see the new gestures in action.
