Split screen text input - gone

After a successful Belle upgrade (thankyou Nokia!) and playing around with the phone all evening, I decided to begin reinstalling some of my essential apps which were removed during the Belle upgrade - starting with Swype.


I can't remember if split screen was there before installing Swype, but since installing it I've noticed I do not have split screen text input. I would be most grateful for any advice. Do I need to remove those conversations appl thingies?


Sorry if there's something blindingly obvious I'm doing wrong or not realising.

Re: Split screen text input - gone

After disabling Swype text input, split screen has returned. Split screen is lost again if I enable Swype. Is this happening to anyone else? Are there any solutions anyone can suggest?

Did you install swype 2.1 from betalabs?

If not - maybe you got the wrong version.

Splitscreen works for me on an N8

Re: Split screen text input - gone

Thankyou so much for the reply. I saw in another thread that someone mentioned downloading the beta 2.1 from betalabs and I tried it and it works. Stupid me thought that my Belle phone would download a version from Nokia Store that works properly with Belle.

Hi all,


just to add that the Betalabs version is also our official solution.


Q: After the update to Nokia Belle, I don’t have the splitscreen view anymore when using Swype. What should I do?

A: Please check out Swype 2.1 from Betalabs via
