If the official beta doesn't work, then you are using "illegal" software. You are right that this doesn't belong here.

Thanks for the correction. I certainly do not wish to condone the use of illegal software. I'm sure most HTC Aria owners would purchase Swype if given the choice to, which I hope will be an option soon with the current beta.
UPDATE: I've found SlideIT to be a pretty darn good keyboard, equivalent to Swype at least.
