There is much excitement about SwiftKey’s new “Flow” keyboard that will be released in the very near future. However, equal to the amount of excitement is the amount of confusion: Is this a separate app? Or an update with an added feature? SwiftKey only added to the confusion when it released a Beta Version of a “SwiftKey Flow” app for beta testers to download. Even in its marketing strategy, SwiftKey seems to be promoting Flow not as a feature, but as a full-fledged application. Well, thankfully for us all, one confused customer used Twitter to ask SwiftKey for some clarification…and here was SwiftKey’s response:
The much anticipated SwiftKey Flow Beta has now arrived and ready for all to download and try. I’ve been playing around with it for a couple of days now and even though it’s in beta, it’s been very solid for me. I’ve had a couple of mistakes here and there, but nothing too major. It is by far my favorite keyboard to use as of now and I’m excited to see how much better it can get.
Give it a go and let us know how you like it!
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.
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
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.

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
There’s just two days left for Google’s 25-cent app sale that’s going on in the Google Play Store. As you know, the sale started this past Wednesday to celebrate the milestone of 25 billion downloads. Hit the break for today’s action.
Finding a nice keyboard that fits your needs and desires is one of the greatest things on Android in my opinion. Certainly something that’s lacking in the iOS department. One of my favorite 3rd party keyboard is SwiftKey 3, while it doesn’t have the crazy customizations and theme-ing such as other keyboards like Smart Keyboard Pro, it does offer one hell of a great experience.
To celebrate Google’s 25 billion downloaded apps, the guys over at SwiftKey are having a fall sale where the app is 75% off with a price of just $0.99. Not a bad deal right? If you’ve been looking for a great keyboard replacement, this is your chance!

AT&T has announced their new entry-level Android handset, the Pantech Flex. As the name suggests, the device is “flex-ible” to the users needs. While the device offers Android’s 4.0 ICS interface, users do have a choice to select “Easy Experience” mode if ICS is too difficult to use. Does this feature seem familiar to you? If you can recollect, Samsung has a similar device in Verizon’s Galaxy Stellar in which the user can choose between “Starter Mode” and “Standard Mode” depending on what they want. Seems like both carriers are attempting to cater to the “less technologically advanced” consumer.
As for the specs, the Flex offers a 4.3 inch qHD display, an 8 megapixel camera, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and more. AT&T will offer the device for $49.99 starting September 16th. You can watch the introductory video of the device below.
