In addition to ICS support, the side-load-only Swype Beta comes with new downloadable languages for tablets, accuracy improvements, and a plug-in to the nifty voice-powered search engine Dragon Go. With Dragon Go, you can simply speak your search terms or ask a question, and be brought directly to the most relevant result. It skips right over the typical hyperlink-filled search engine results pages.

Swype is one of the more popular Android replacement keyboards because it lets you type by quickly swiping from letter to letter. It comes preinstalled on many devices, and cannot be downloaded from the Android Market.

Swype Beta is available now for download from the Swype Web site. Devices that already come preinstalled with Swype do not support the Beta download.
