SwiftKey was updated to version 4.2 not too long ago, bringing a ton of new features for third party keyboard lovers. As you would imagine with a major update release, there were plenty of bugs inside, but thanks to SwiftKey’s awesome community of users, the development team was able to track most of them down and squash them in the newest 4.2.1 release. The update is now available as a free update through Google Play, or you can still go check out the keyboard for $3.99.  (more…)

The third-party keyboard replacement, SwiftKey, has some of the best prediction software that can be found on an Android device.

We here at Droid Life have been fans of SwiftKey for a long time now, but you already knew that as we have written about it dozens of times now.

Ahhh yes, today is April Fools’ Day. For the most part, it’s the most obnoxious day of the year for anyone in the media. What’s fake? What’s real? Do we even bother reporting anything at all? No one wants to get duped publicly, so we all submit ourselves to doing what I’m doing here, posting up all the pranks from Google and the rest of the tech community. As always, Google goes overboard, but usually in a good way. This year though, we’re seeing some new players like Twitter, Swiftkey, and even Samsung.

Below, you’ll find a list of many.  (more…)

Swiftkey Powers the Samsung Galaxy S4 Keyboard

If you plan to pick up the newly announced Samsung Galaxy S4 when it launches in April, know that you are in good hands when it comes to the keyboard technology. Swiftkey, one of our favorite Android keyboards of all time, is powering this beast, so your predictive nature will be satisfied.

We should point out that the keyboard may not look like the Swiftkey you have come to love, as Samsung has likely skinned it, but all of the brains are there. Your days of saving taps will continue on.

For those not interested in the GS4, don’t worry, Swiftkey has promised to continue to innovate on the consumer side as well. So Swiftkey 4 or 5 or 6 or whatever is next, will only get better as they have done over the last couple of years.

Last night at midnight, Swiftkey released the newest version of their keyboard to the market, fittingly called Swiftkey 4. As expected, this version of Swiftkey includes Flow, the swipe-style keyboard that allows you to write words and sentences without having to lift up a finger. If you have been in the beta game for some time, then you have been testing Flow for a while now. It’s brilliant, because it predicts just as good as Swiftkey has for years, but it gives you another way to input text.  (more…)
