Swiftkey Introduces Swiftmoji, a Keyboard to Help Predict Your Next Emoji

Swiftkey, the Microsoft-owned popular keyboard maker, released its first new product today since being acquired. The new keyboard (yes, they made another keyboard) is called Swiftmoji and it aims to help you become the emoji champion you always hoped to become. In fact, the sell here is that it “removes the frustration of playing hunt-the-emoji” from your life and predicts which emoji you might want.  (more…)

SwiftKey Beta Updated With Awesome Clipboard Feature

The SwiftKey beta application is receiving an update today, bringing with it a new Clipboard feature for users. When using, the Clipboard will allow users to maintain, albeit for a limited amount of time, a list of text that is copied (or cut) on Android. Items that are copied or cut will remain on the list for an hour, granting quick access to the information you copied via SwiftKey Hub.  (more…)

Poll: Are You a Keyboard Swiper or Pecker?

Since there is no shortage of options for keyboard apps on Google Play, it seems that no matter who I talk to, everyone is using something different. For me, the standard Google Keyboard works great. I especially love the custom photos I can use to theme it. More importantly, though, the swipe functionality on Google Keyboard seems very accurate more times than not, which saves me time during typing and also allows me to use one hand.

Other people, known as peckers, prefer to type each individual letter in a word. These people don’t care about saving time and would much rather watch the whole world go up in flames than to swipe out words on their keyboard. Don’t worry, only kidding. Peckers would argue that swiping words out is not as accurate as they would like, plus with auto-correct becoming better over the years, the words that they peck out are usually spot on which saves them time from redoing a swipe.

Different strokes for different folks.

So, are you a keyboard swiper or pecker?
