SwiftKey Reaches 10 Billion Keystrokes Saved Milestone – Begins Vizio Tablet Giveaway

We have plenty of people here who love them some SwiftKey. It is one of the top alternative keyboard choices for Android alongside Swype and FlextT9. SwiftKey has just announced that they have saved users a combined 10 billion keystrokes thanks to their word-predicting engine. And to celebrate, are giving away tablets, launches of trial applications, and support for six new languages.

If you want to get in on the fun, and happen to be a SwiftKey user, then follow these easy instructions to enter yourself in to win a Vizio tablet.

To enter the drawing, SwiftKey users are being asked to tweet how many keystrokes they have saved – a stat available in their app’s settings – along with the hashtag #SKX10bn. And for Android users yet to try SwiftKey, the company has just launched two new free trial apps, so users can give the award-winning technology a shot and then submit their tweet. One winner will then be randomly chosen and contacted via direct message at the end of each day.

If you choose to enter, then good luck to you. I would love for people to put down in the comment section how many keystrokes they have saved. Are Droid Life readers anywhere near at least a billion?

    I just can’t get into this keyboard… been using Swype for 1.5 years… grabbed Swiftkey when it was the ‘free app of the day’ from Amazon and made a point to diligently use it for 2 months — it was ok but Swype is just too damn fun & fast to leave it.

    Might have to try it out on my Xoom — surprisingly enough, I HATE Swype on the tablet — Thumb Keyboard kicks seven different kinds of ass on the tablet.

      still can’t believe it I just got a $829.99 iPad2 for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HDTV for only $251.92, they are both coming with USPS tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prices at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HDTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for. I use BidsNéw.com
