New Swiftkey Beta for Phones and Tablets, Better Predictions and More Typing Stat


The tablet and phone versions of Swiftkey beta received sizable updates today, bringing them to version  If you are a part of the program, then as always, we suggest you jump on over to the forums and pick up these newest builds. The Swiftkey team has added an autocaps toggle, more personalizations, easier language switching, more stats about how you type, and this really cool heatmap of your keyboard use.

There were also bug fixes and some improvements made, but this is the list of the new toys:

  • Autocaps toggle – now choose whether your sentences begin with a capital letter or not
  • Better personalization – SwiftKey can now learn your typing style from your blog
  • Language switching – easy transitions between (e.g.) English and Russian keyboards, just slide the spacebar
  • More stats about how you type with SwiftKey – and more links to share them
  • My typing heatmap – cool visualization shows how you use your keyboard

    Why do people wait for Blind-Type when A.I.type delivers it NOW. Go there and see for yourselves. Its not vaporware. It didn’t fall into the corporate abyss. It works, and its actually fun. Go for A.I.type.

    Thanks for posting this. Since I switched from the DX to the DX2, my SwiftKey X hasn’t worked right. The beta fixed this.

    I wish they had Chinese simplified keyboard, we host exchange students and it would very convenient for me when they are searching for a word to be able to type it in Chinese into Google translate.

      I’m personally fairly proud of my 3:1 like:comment ratio, especially considering when I post, I tend to vomit posts all over articles!

      Congrats sir!
