SwiftKey Releases Two Material Design Themes

October 23, 2014 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Today, SwiftKey is introducing a couple of new themes to their theme store. This comes shortly after pushing out a few halloween themes last week. These new themes are material design themes. So if you’re a fan of SwiftKey and a fan of Material Design, you’re going to love these themes. There’s a light material theme and a dark material theme available for you to pick up. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m already in love with these themes and will be buying both. And if you’re running Android 5.0 Lollipop, it’ll fit right in with the rest of the OS, or even when you upgrade to Lollipop. Which if you have a Nexus device, it should be in the next few weeks.

“The material is grounded in tactile reality, inspired by the study of paper and ink, yet technologically advanced and open to imagination and magic… Surfaces and edges of the material provide visual cues that are grounded in reality… the flexibility of the material creates new affordances that supercede those in the physical world, without breaking the rules of physics.”

Since SwiftKey went freemium earlier this year, we’ve been seeing quite the number of themes coming out from the SwiftKey team, which is awesome. As Android users, we love themes. Which is probably why there are so many CyanogenMod themes on the Play Store right now. You can pick up SwiftKey from the Play Store right now and check out the number of themes that they have in their SwiftKey store. It’s steadily growing, which is a great thing. And we can’t wait to see what SwiftKey does next.

SwiftKey has been my keyboard of choice, basically exclusively since it came out a few years ago. How many of you use SwiftKey as your keyboard? Let us know in the comments below.
