For all you fans of keyboard replacements, today is a great day indeed. Swiftkey X has pushed out version 2.1, and with it brings some pretty awesome advancements. For those of you who haven’t tried it out yet, Swiftkey learns from your writing habits and develops its dictionary based on your personal word usage. If you frequently type a word like “triptychs” for example, Swiftkey will more than likely start predicting after typing the letters “tri”. It even goes as far as scanning verbiage in your Facebook, Gmail, sms, and Twitter accounts, compiling a sort of personal dictionary if you will. In the most recent update, Swiftkey can even learn from your personal RSS feed or blog posts, proving even more beneficial to writers like myself. I have long been a beta tester for Swiftkey (recently Swiftkey X) since its inception and haven’t looked back since. Although having tried many other keyboard apps. I always find myself coming home to Swiftkey X.
Its been one year today since SwiftKey Beta was launched in the Android Market. So to celebrate the one yea birthday of SwiftKey they are launching two new keyboards.
SwiftKey X is the most advanced product we’ve engineered to date, and it’s packed full of new features. SwiftKey Tablet X has all of those incredible features plus an innovative ‘split key’ layout that makes tablet typing a breeze.

Swiftkey is already hugely popular on Android devices, with many users paying the $2 just to get the full version, because it’s just that good! Now, Swiftkey has been listening and watching user feedback for some time, and based on those comments and ideas, they have released Swiftkey X beta for Free in the Android Market.
The new version in TouchType’s Swiftkey offers some UI improvements, cloud personalization where you can tell the app to learn your speech from your facebook, twitter and gmail accounts, as well as texts. You can tell the app what style of typist you are as well so it can customize the predictability features as you type to suit your style from the heat signature left behind on your touchscreen as you type. This allows the app to tell if you type sloppy or precise.
Finding that perfect on-screen keyboard can be extremely frustrating. Some completely bypass the effort by just siding with a physical keyboard, but I love the immediacy that software keyboards provide. Plus, touchscreen phones tend to be a lot slimmer than their keyboard-toting brethren, and I’m all about the slim profile. So, the search continues. Recently, however, I was happily given the opportunity to test-drive TouchType’s SwiftKey 2 beta. What were my impressions? Find out after the break!
The Amazon Appstore has been open for business since Tuesday and in my initial review I was not in love with it enough to ditch the Android Market. After 5 days, things have not changed, and as I expected, they are providing some really nice deals that make it a great alternative to the Android Market. Unfortunately it is only available for customers located in the US and not on AT&T.
Each day a different app will be featured as the free app of the day. Today it is SwiftKey, which is normally priced at $1.99. Yesterday, Shazam Encore was offered for a savings of $4.99. On Thursday, you could have saved .99 cents on Doodle Jump and on Wednesday the savings was $4.99 on World Series of Poker: Hold’em Legend. These deals are not hard to find as they are front and center on the home page. The deals section also features apps with savings ranging from 17% to 50%.
