Unfortunately, Swype, though the name may be big, is not available officially via App Store. Like other iOS hack, Swype is coming through the ModMyi repository on Cydia and thus, you need to have your device jailbroken for it to work.

How to Install Swype using Cydia

So how you install Swype on your iOS device? Getting Swype installed on your iPhone or iPad is pretty easy.

  1. Launch Cydia and navigate to “Sources”.
  2. Add the source and wait for it to get the packages.
  3. Search for iSwipe and install it.
  4. iSwipe in Cydia

  5. You get Swype on your Device as soon as the installation completes. Just launch Notes to have a quick test.
  6. Swype on iPad

Note that the current beta version is only compatible with Apple’s stock firmware apps, text messaging, mail for instance and not the App Store/Cydia apps, but the next update is supposed to make it work with a broader app pool, while iOS developer, Andrew Liu (@WyndWarrior) is working on Swype’s next release. Below is a video that’ll give you an instant idea of Swype for iOS:

To have Swype working, as we mentioned earlier, you need a jailbroken iDevice. If you’re using any iOS 5 beta, you can follow our jailbreak guide here, or if you’re using iOS 4.3.3, follow the JailbreakMe guide here or simply find a guide yourself in our Jailbreak section.
