If you use SwiftKey and are as horrible a touch typist as I am, you’ll be extremely pleased to hear that the makers of the venerable third-party keyboard for Android are rolling out features to improve typing predictions and autocorrect.
Updated personalization options within SwiftKey version 4.4.5 allow the app to collect typographical data from Google+ public posts and Evernote archives, much in the same way as Google’s most recent Keyboard release. The app goes one step further for owners of iOS devices; if you have SwiftKey Note connected to Evernote, the app will now also glean typographical information from that.
The SwiftKey update also includes bug fixes, most notably an issue with mentioning people within Google+ posts. A few forced closes and crashes have also been remedied.
The new SwiftKey is available for download from both Google Play and the Amazon Appstore. For those interested in joining the beta, you can download it here.
