The wildly successful SwiftKey keyboard for
Android tablets and handsets has just been
updated with some pretty neat enhancements.
The highlight of this new release is SwiftKey Flow,
a gesture input method akin to Swype. The
difference of course is that it also incorporates
SwiftKey’s well known word prediction. On top of
that, you can also “flow through space,” meaning
that you can gesture input multiple words
without lifting your finger off the screen.
SwiftKey says that it has enhanced the prediction
engine and made the learning mechanism more
thorough so it learns your language(s) and typing
style even better. Corrections are made easier by
just tapping anywhere on a word if you want to
pick an alternative.
SwiftKey now supports 60 languages, adding
Albanian, Bosnian, Javanese, Sudanese, Thai and
Vietnamese to the mix. You can have up to three
languages active while you type as well. If you
have the previous version of SwiftKey, you should
be upgrade to the new version for free.
