The company behind SwiftKey, the popular Android keyboard replacement, recently revealed that its all new “Flow Through Space’ feature would be arriving sometime this month. Well, it appears as though that time may be coming sooner rather than later.

Joe Braidwood, CMO of SwiftKey, took to Twitter today to announce that SwiftKey Flow would be launching “in less than 24 hours,” ensuring that eager users wouldn’t have to wait much longer to be able to try their hand at the Swype-esque keyboard. It has also been made clear that users who wish to get in on the closed beta should sign up on SwiftKey’s official VIP forums in order to receive the email invitation over the course of the coming day.

So, are you guys as excited as I am? Have you signed up for the beta yet? If not, be sure to head to the source link below.

Swiftkey reveals ‘Flow Through Space’ feature in new SwiftKey Flow keyboard

tagged ,

Not too long ago SwiftKey showed of its new keyboard, appropriately titled SwiftKey Flow. There’s still no word on beta invites, but today we’ve got a new video showing a pretty unique, new feature in the keyboard. While typing out words, you can trace down to the spacebar and then keep going with the next word. No need to lift your finger at all for your sentences. Couple that with SwiftKey’s fantastic prediction engine, and I imagine this new keyboard is going to be a huge success. Hit the video after the break to see the feature in action. » Read the rest

SwiftKey keyboard disappearing for Android 4.2 users, a fix is in the works

by Alexon Enfiedjian on
tagged , , ,

Users of the ever-popular keyboard app, SwiftKey, are reporting problems after updating their devices to Android 4.2.  For many users, the keyboard disappeared entirely from devices after installing the Android 4.2 update. In some cases, the keyboard is simply soft-disabled, but others found the software to be uninstalled completely from their device.

SwiftKey is aware of the problem and is working closely with the Android team to get it solved. For now, the quick fix is to simply re-download the app and go through the installation process again. Unfortunately, this will not restore the lost user data or all the predictive word sequences that you worked so hard to build up. Hopefully SwiftKey will have this resolved soon.

Swiftkey announces Swiftkey Flow beta to start for new app

by Jeff Causey on
tagged , , ,

Leading Android keyboard developer Swiftkey announced a new app today, Swiftkey Flow. This new app will enable users to “flow” a word by gliding their finger across the keypad instead of tapping letters, somewhat reminiscent of the input method found in Swype and other apps. Swiftkey indicates the new Swiftkey Flow app will be different because it incorporates their real-time prediction technology as a user is “flowing” a word. Swiftkey touts the power of its artificial intelligence engine by noting it can correctly predict the next word 30% of the time before any characters are even entered. Once two characters are entered, whether through traditional typing or using the new “flow” mode, the odds of correctly predicting the next word jump to 84%.

Swiftkey indicates they will start beta testing the new app with members of the VIP community before eventually releasing it in the Google Play Store. Hit the break for a video of Swiftkey Flow in action and the text of the full press release. » Read the rest

Swiftkey update brings Jelly Bean compatibility

by Chris Stewart on
tagged , , ,

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?

You can bag the latest update by clicking the link below. Let us know your thoughts on how the new stock keyboard compares to SwiftKey’s latest update in the comments below.
