This morning, Swiftkey introduced version 4.3 beta of its popular Android keyboard. This latest build is significant because it builds on Swiftkey cloud by finally merging the Swiftkey tablet and phone keyboards into one app, while also providing users with the power to resize and move keyboard layouts anywhere on a device. As you can imagine on a big screen, this feature could come in handy quite often. (more…)
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…)
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. (more…)
The third-party keyboard replacement, SwiftKey, has some of the best prediction software that can be found on an Android device. However, if you have it installed across multiple devices, the information stored to power those predictions doesn’t travel with you. The SwiftKey team is fixing this problem in the latest beta update by introducing SwiftKey Cloud. (more…)
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. Still, if you have yet to try it and are looking for a keyboard to replace the stock one on your device, SwiftKey is one of the best out there. The predictions are so good, it probably knew that I was going to write this paragraph before I did. We aren’t the only fans of the keyboard though, SwiftKey is celebrating 150,000 5-star reviews on Google Play. What better way to celebrate than to cut the price of an already awesome application in half? (more…)
While rounding up today’s best April Fools’ stories, many came across SwiftKey Tilt, where users can tilt their device to type out sentences. It was taken as a joke since in their promo video you see a lady on a unicycle typing, a whole office of people doing some type of Harlem Shake, but it appears as if this is no joke. (more…)
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…)
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.
