SwiftKey Announces College Themes in Time for March Madness

March 10, 2015 - Written By Alexander Maxham

This week, the conference tournaments begin, and then we’ll have the NCAA Tournament starting late next week. So it’s fair to say that March Madness is here! We’ll be watching a ton of basketball games this month and find out if Kentucky can finish their perfect season with a NCAA Title in early April.

To celebrate March Madness, SwiftKey has announced that they have some College themes available for download in their theme store. Right now they have 9 teams available. These include Kentucky, Virginia, Michigan, Wisconsin, Texas A&M, Iowa, Notre Dame, Florida and Ohio State. SwiftKey may or may not have more on the way. These are all available now through the SwiftKey theme store. They are going at $0.99 each. They are not available as a pack, however. The animations in these themes are pretty sweet. Each tile you tap on, or each letter, the basketball bounces on it. If you like using SwiftKey Flow you’ll see flow in your schools color. So for instance, I have the Michigan keyboard installed, so the flow color is Maize. The background has a basketball court with your schools logo in the middle.

Additionally, SwiftKey is doing their own tournament to see which team gets the most downloads. So you’ll want to make sure to support your team. Head on over to swiftkey.com/basketball and you’ll see the bracket at the bottom of the page. Right now Kentucky is in the lead. Which can’t really surprise anyone, given that they are currently 31-0 heading into the tournaments. Behind them is Michigan. Which means the old Maize and Blue have plenty of fans, seeing as they didn’t have a great year this past year, and may or may not make it to the NCAA Tournament, thanks to all the injuries the team suffered.

So which team are you supporting in March Madness? Do you think Kentucky can stay undefeated all the way through the tournament, or will they get knocked out early? Let us know in the comments down below.
