SwiftKey Cloud Leaves Beta and Hits Google Play, Celebrates With a Sale

swiftkey jelly bean

For the past few weeks now, SwiftKey has been testing their new cloud feature in their beta program. Today, the new feature comes to all SwiftKey users through an update in Google Play. And for those who haven’t learned how awesome SwiftKey is yet, the app is half off right now so you can get started. 

With SwiftKey’s new cloud backup and sync your personalization options are saved to the cloud under your account name. That means that you should expect the same suggestions for typing across your multiple phones and tablets as long as you have your account logged in. They have also added tending words, so if something is blowing up on Twitter, you could expect to see it suggested as a word on your keyboard. These are all in addition to adding better learning sequences to the keyboard and new settings to make this update a very solid one. If you are not using SwiftKey yet, this might be your time to start.

    Are anybody else’s prediction boxes huge after the update? They don’t even reduce when you decrease the keyboard size. Any workarounds?

  • TheBigOldDog

    Been wondering lately if there is a performance hit associated with Swiftkey, I love it and use it on multiple devices and haven’t really used anything else. Now I am thinking I have to remove it from a device and see if the interminable lags around keyboard operations goes away.

  • MrBigStuff

    Did this update break anyone else’s predictions? It’s almost unusable for me now. The prediction bar is there above the keyboard, but all three slots are blank and nothing happens when I hit them.

  • The Phenom

    I have tried other keybords but since buying swiftkey I haven’t looked back. I love it period. Got the update and logged in earlier today

  • Pengwn

    I’m still having issues downloading the English(US) pack =/

    I read online that it was supposedly fixed, but after a fresh install/reboot/clear data/factory reset I’m still getting the error. I would really like to use swiftkey over the stock keyboard but I’ve had this error for a month or two now..

    Yes, keyboard of choice.

  • ~dArK.AnGeL

    Predictive multi-language support; & key logging my most used phrases makes it my only keyboard since it came out.

    My last pay check
    was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been
    averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can’t
    believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do,

  • This could have real potential as a sort of key logger.

  • Eric Bright

    I am okay with stock Google keyboard.

  • qwopzxnm

    I have Swype and like it a lot. Are there any major differences between this and Swype? Are typing capitalization and punctiuonation simlar?

    • IMHO, SwiftKey is better. I will admit that it has been a while since I used Swype though. The text prediction is fantastic, Flow (SwiftKey swype style typing) is much easier and smoother than Swype and allows for full sentences, themes are great and now I can sync it between phones and tablets.

      • The Phenom

        I agree 100 percent.

    • cobalt27

      I have both and they’re both great keyboards and I have uses for both. I find that Swiftkey has better overall predictions, but Swype is better at the swipe-style writing because Flow just doesn’t make the right words for me. I actually use Swype as my standard on my phone because it’s a great one-hand swiping keyboard, while I use Swiftkey as my standard on my Nexus 7.

  • Jon Kruse

    This keyboard knows exactly what I want to say 90% of the time.

  • rutgersjaffo

    Again I will say that I just don’t get the love for Swiftkey. I gave it not one but two solid tries for periods of time and couldn’t stand it. Went back to stock with Swype on my Note 3.

    • Jon Kruse

      What didn’t you like?

      • rutgersjaffo

        Little things, like how difficult is was to insert spaces without putting in a period every time. Honestly it’s been about 8 months since my last effort so a lot of the minor irritations have now left me. I have no complaints at all with the Swype ability of the stock Note 2 keyboard. It’s as comfortable as I have been since leaving a physical one, lol.

        • Ryan Cota

          I can understand that, it took me awhile, but also you can configure how spaces are treated and turn off the function of adding periods. You can make it like other keyboards and how you insert spaces.

          And their swyping has improved too, so since I find myself swpying and typing back and forth. Switfkey types better than Swype so I like the balance it has between the typing styles.

    • Pedro4Prez

      I’m the opposite and can’t stand other keyboards

    • LionStone

      Me neither… The stock Trace keyboard on the DNA is fast and accurate and the Swype kb on the N7HD is much better now and faster so I don’t see a reason to download another keyboard. My new Nexus 7 saved my words from the original 7 too 🙂

    • wh1te_mag1c

      The biggest advantage of SwiftKey is the ability to type in more than 1 language at the same time. The built-in AI helps with that, of course.

  • Ronaldo

    I’m getting the same connection error as others are reporting when I try to sign in. Servers getting beaten up by users trying to sign in.

    Love Swiftkey. Lightyears better than the stock Samsung keyboard.

      What are you using instead?

      • Ian Smith

        Google Keyboard – it’s free!

        • ToddAwesome

          It’s free, sure, but it’s not nearly as good as Swype or Swiftkey. I’ve used all 3, and I spend more time correcting what the Google keyboard thinks I’m typing whereas Swype/Swift just keep on trucking.

          • John

            Exactly. The only reason to use Google’s over anything is how fast it pops up when you’re needing to type.

        • Curtis

          Google Keyboard is fine, but it’s not great. SkiftKey is great!

        • The Phenom

          So is Swiftkey if that is the version you want.

    • panicswhenubered

      I just typed “overrated!” as a test. It came out fine using SwiftKey. You should consider switching.

      • LionStone

        Overrated…I just did too on N7, so why switch?

  • Phil

    i cant get it to connect to swift key cloud just says signing in then times out and says I dont have a connection.

    • chris13417

      I’m running into the same problem.

      • Guest

        same here

    • bvsbutthd101

      having the same problem

    • Liquidretro

      Pretty sure their servers are overloaded.

    • kristypeter32

      I’m making over
      $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much
      money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all
      true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do, http://www.Pro67.cℴℳ
