Swiftkey Wants You to Type Like a Pirate with PirateKey X


Monday is international Talk Like a Pirate Day, and Swiftkey wants to help facilitate that by giving you a special edition Pirate-talking keyboard.  It works just like their normal predictive text staple, but it suggests pirate lingo along the way.  As you can see from the screenies above, they held nothing back and even themed the app to be pirate-esque.  It’s silly sure, but fun.

Oh, they also launched a new VIP forum and are thinking about doing other fun keyboards like this in the future.

If you are a Swiftkey member, you can grab the file from this thread.

    Why don’t they make this a language option in Swiftkey X instead of having to download a new app??

  • This pirate app started causing ALL my apps to force close. Uninstalled, everything’s fine. dumb

  • I precisely wanted to thank you so much yet again. I’m not certain the things that I would’ve carried out in the absence of the entire tactics contributed by you concerning this subject matter. This has been a terrifying scenario in my opinion, but discovering a new professional tactic you dealt with it made me to jump over fulfillment. I will be happier for the support and in addition expect you really know what a great job your are accomplishing teaching most people through your webblog. Probably you’ve never come across any of us.

  • My spouse and i ended up being very joyful that Raymond managed to finish off his studies through your precious recommendations he was given from your site. It’s not at all simplistic to simply happen to be freely giving key points which usually many others have been selling. We know we now have you to appreciate for that. All of the explanations you have made, the simple website menu, the relationships you give support to create – it’s many exceptional, and it’s assisting our son and the family imagine that that theme is cool, which is certainly unbelievably serious. Many thanks for the whole thing!

      Use “gingerbread keyboard” or AI type until you fix it

    It would serve them better if they took the time to fix the issue of their wonderful prediction line disappearing upon reboot.   App shows a lot of promise.  Only promise.

  • Error? Do I need an account?

  • I have everything selected but its not talking in Pirate…..Double and triple checked that everything is on, selected, and updated…yet when im typing, nothing comes out Piratey…..What am I doing wrong guys? I’m using my stock Droid Bionic.
