Do you think maybe that iPhone users are hungry for third-party keyboards? It would be hard to argue otherwise after seeing the SwiftKey Keyboard for iPhone surpass 1 million downloads in less than 24 hours. SwiftKey is now the number one app in the U.S. free app charts, and it was all made possible thanks to third-party keyboard support baked into iOS 8. The iPhone has always had a decent stock keyboard, though SwiftKey is popular for its ability to learn your writing style to more accurately predict your next word, and also because it allows users to type by sliding from letter to letter with...

Good news for texting addicts: SwiftKey 4 is now available on Google Play, and it's a free upgrade if you're an existing user. Otherwise, it carries a promo price of $1.99 and is worth every penny if you do a lot of typing, or just want a better keyboard than the one that ships stock on Android. The secret sauce to SwiftKey 4's awesomeness is "SwiftKey Flow," which is pretty eerie in its ability to read your mind and predict the next word you're looking for. Combined with SwiftKey's signature ability to let you glide your finger from character to character without lifting it up, you can perform... Read more...
If you're an Android user, and you haven't at least explored the possibilities of using a third-party keyboard -- why? Swype has gained lots of love over the years, but there's another dog in the fight that seems to be gaining a ton of steam: SwiftKey. The third iteration of the company's intelligent, keystroke-saving keyboard is out today, with $1.99 getting you the goods. If you aren't familiar with it, it's a pretty standard looking keyboard, but it adds a wild auto-correction and auto-complete system that aims to save users time. Start typing a word, and if it's something you use frequently,... Read more...
Using a third-party Android keyboard is pretty common these days. Whether you chose SWYPE, SwiftKey, or another keyboard, most users will agree that these third-party keyboards have much more to offer than the stock Android keyboard. Recently, Touch Type introduced two new keyboards that are sure to catch the attention of some Android users. The first is SwiftKey X. According to the company, this keyboard is " the most advanced product we’ve engineered to date, and it’s packed full of new features." The second new keyboard is designed specifically for tablets and is appropriately called... Read more...
For Android, third-party keyboards are all the rage. Unlike a stock iPhone, you can actually change up the keyboard within Android, and two companies in particular have really gained traction lately. Swype is one, with its very unusual sliding / typing method, and TouchType is the other. The company's SwiftKey keyboard uses predictive technology to guess what word you're likely going to type next, and then provide you with three main options atop the keyboard to select. In practice, it works quite well, but it never really seemed tailored for use on larger tablet screens. Now, it's clear that the... Read more...
Back in July, we told you about a new application for Android smartphones that claims it can predict the next word you intend to type. The app, known as SwiftKey, was previously available for free as a beta product. Now TouchType (the makers of SwiftKey) want you to know the app is ready for prime time. With the official launch of SwiftKey, the app now supports voice dictation as well as multi-touch. It also has a new keyboard layout and is capable of making simultaneous predictions in two languages. If you've been anxious to try out the official version, now's the time—to celebrate the launch,... Read more...
Last month, we told you about a cool new predictive text application for Android smartphones called SwiftKey. Though the app is definitely cool, SwiftKey isn't the only predictive text application available. In fact, Adaptxt recently came out with a new intelligent language software app that specifically targets Nokia smartphone users. The company claims the performance of the Adaptxt engine is better than any of the present competitors, including XT9, SureType and SwiftKey. To back up this claim, the company has performed tests of KSPC (Keystrokes per character), WPM (Word per minute) and Error... Read more...
SwiftKey recently introduced a new application for Android users that promises to predict your next word with "incredible accuracy." To do this, SwiftKey uses TouchType’s Fluency technology in order to predict the next word you are likely to type. SwiftKey has been two years in the making. Now, it's available in beta version through the Android Market. According to the British start-up company TouchType, SwiftKey can increase writing speeds by up to 50% with its powerful prediction engine. Although SwiftKey uses your own messages to help predict future text, the company assures users it does... Read more...
