I know a lot of you have been testing the Beta version of SwiftKey Flow, but it’s now available to all as part of the new SwiftKey 4. Now if you’re already a user of SwiftKey Pro, you don’t need to worry about the promo price since it’s a free upgrade to existing users. If you are one of those that hasn’t tried it yet, now is your time to grab it for half the price and get one of their biggest upgrades. I personally love their stock keyboard and I’m not much of a swiping type of guy, but the fact that you get both in one package makes SwiftKey 4 one of the best keyboard replacement apps available for Android.
If you’ve been using the SwiftKey Flow Beta, SwiftKey has a new release for you that’s going to make your experience just a little bit better. There’s been a lot of work done under the hood, so there’s not too many new features in this beta, but there is a brand new installer for the keyboard to better match the Flow theme. Hit the links below to check out the changelog and get your hands on the new app, and remember that this is a third-party application, so you’re going to have to install it like you would any other app outside of the Play Store. » Read the rest

We’ll go over all the best keyboard replacements for your device to help you pick one the right one for you.
While Pantech usually makes budget friendly Android devices, the Discover may actually steer away a little bit from that. The Pantech Discover will land on AT&T come January 11th for a low price of $50 on contract. While one may easily assume it’s a low-end device considering the price, the specs are actually quite good for the price:
- 4.8-inch 720p TFT display
- 12.6MP rear camera with 1080p video capture, HDR
- 2MP front-facing camera
- Dual 3D surround sound
- Android 4.0
- 16GB internal memory
- MicroSD external memory up to 32GB
- GSM / EDGE: 850/900/1800/1900; HSPA+ / UMTS 850/1900/2100; LTE 700/850/1900/AWS
- WiFi a/b/g/n
- Bluetooth 4.0
- 4.76 ounces
- 134.2 x 68.6 x 9.1mm (5.3 x 2.7 x 0.36 inches)
Aesthetically, it looks great in my opinion. The curvature of the back side of the device looks great and comfortable to hold. If only we knew how much the off-contract price is. If even that is low, then maybe Pantech may really have something here as this device would certainly adhere to the off-contract buyers. Check out the full press release after the break!
Swype is easily one of the biggest alternative keyboards for Android, right next to SwiftKey. It even comes preloaded on several devices out of the box, like many Samsung phones. Swype didn’t reach that popularity without making some pretty incredible innovations, of course, and it looks like they’re trying to outdo themselves again. The latest beta of Swype offers a new feature called “Living Language.” This feature analyzes the words you text and type and tries to predict your next word based on that analysis. Sounds a little like SwiftKey, right? Well, here’s the other awesome part; this feature is going to track trending words based on the location you’re typing those words. “Packers” would probably have been a pretty hot topic this past weekend in Wisconsin, for instance, so SwiftKey would be able to make some better predictions based on that trend. Pretty impressive. Hit the break below to check out the press release, and don’t forget to check out our CES 2013 coverage this week for the rest of the cool stuff.
SwiftKey’s take on the swipe keyboard, SwiftKey Flow, has been in public beta for about a month now. An updated beta was all but guaranteed as the version it replaces, 22.214.171.124, had a limited license for use set to expire January 7, 2013. Today’s release, 126.96.36.199, has a relatively short limited license, expiring on January 30, 2013, and comes with a host of improvements. The short beta window could be an indication SwiftKey is nearing the end of beta testing or is at least prepared to quickly launch another updated version.
The update brings performance and battery improvements and addresses a few bugs causing force closing and memory leaks. It will also allow for “flow” in landscape on tablets. Hit the source to see the full change log and download the update. I’ve been using it for weeks and have been very happy. Go get it!
