Swiftkey Gets Updates – Makes a Great Keyboard Even Better

December 16, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

While the stock Android keyboard is good enough for many people, there are those who find it lacking in features and usability, which has spelled great news for developers of third-party keyboards.

Next to Swype, one of the more popular alternative keyboards on the Android platform has been Swiftkey, thanks to its Fluency prediction engine, which offers superior next word prediction and error correction.

The makers of Swiftkey, TouchType, have just released an ‘HD’ update to their popular app that adds support for 5 additional languages, improved text prediction and offers a new ‘HD’ skin that may be geared toward users of high-resolution phones and tablets.

The 5 new languages included in this update are:

  • Brazilian Portuguese
  • Czech
  • Danish
  • Norwegian
  • Polish

If you haven’t tried Swiftkey yet, you can grab a free version in the market that allows for text predictions up to 31 days. After that, you’ll have to fork over $3.99 for the full version.
