Swiftkey update brings Jelly Bean compatibility

The stock Android keyboard continues to go from strength to strength, the steady progress was further reinforced with a pretty solid update baked into Jelly Bean 4.1. The latest update to the stock keyboard brought with it improved auto-correction as well as a nifty auto-prediction feature that learns your typing habits and appears to know what you’re writing even before you do. Interestingly enough, we first saw these features over a year ago via replace keyboard extraordinaire SwiftKey. Unless you have a preference for the swipe style keyboard, SwiftKey is the consensus king of the replacement Keyboard and was even the keyboard of choice for this writer; until recently. SwiftKey initially didn’t support Jelly Bean, an issue that the developers have rectified today with a much needed update. The question is, does SwiftKey still offer a Unique Selling Point that will convince the average Android owner to part with their pocket money now that the stock keyboard offers a similar experience?

    Is this almost as good as speech recognition? Where all we do is talk… and it types the text for us???

    Physical keyboards are dead.
    On-screen keyboards are dying.
