SwiftKey : The Best Keyboard App is now free

The best keyboard app for Android is now free. Yes you read it right..FREE. SwiftKey has just made a gutsy move by dropping the $3.99 price for its keyboard app and making it free. Swiftkey has been updated to version  5.0 today with lots of new features.


Swiftkey is the most downloaded keyboard app on Android. It had been making most of its money from its premuim paid app which some of the people thought was too expensive. Besides it's app SwiftKey sells it's White-label technology to Samsung and BlackBerry. As a result it claims to be on more than 200 million devices all over the world. The company will now collect it's revenues from the premium paid themes in its app which the users have craved for some time now. 


SwiftKey app has also been updated with 30 new themes and all new predictions on which emojis you might use next. Android devices running  Android 4.1 and above will be able to use new emoji selector which contains more than 800 emojis. Yay!!!. SwiftKey has improved it's Natural Language Processing (NLP) Technology and its core prediction engine. By this move SwiftKey will be able to reach more users and maintain its top spot among the long list of Android keyboards. 

Personally SwiftKey has been my default keyboard app for more than 2 years now. It's gesture typing is pretty darn useful  for one handed typing. 

It's time you leave your Google Keyboard or OEMs default keyboard app for SwiftKey.

Color OS (Custom Android Rom from Oppo) for Galaxy Nexus

Color OS is a custom Android firmware from the Chinese manufacturer Oppo. It's basically a heavily skinned version of Android. According to Oppo the Color OS was developed with lots of research from users and is accompanied by more than 40 patents.

It doesnot contain any Google Apps so you have to flash a gapps package given below this post.

I have tried this rom on my Galaxy Nexus and i haven't noticed any bugs yet. It isn't as snappy as Paranoid Android or Vanir Rom but can definitely be used as a daily driver.

The OS is based on Android 4.2.2. Oppo has been very slow on updates but as soon as they upgrade thier rom to the latest Android version, the developer community will surely port it to Galaxy Nexus soon.

The custom status toggle tiles are similar to Stock Android. It has a unique feature called custom spaces like Music spaces and Photos spaces. In Music spaces you can play songs and get their lyrics whenever you are connected to the internet.

As you can see, everyth…

CM 11S (OnePlus One ROM) for Galaxy Nexus (Maguro) with Fancy Kernel Review

Most of you should might have heard about Cyanogen Inc. and their Android custom rom CyanogenMod (CM). Earlier this year Cyanogen partnered with a new Chinese Phone Manufacturer named OnePlus to bring "OnePlus One" Android phone to the market. OnePlus One came pre-loaded with a custom-built firmware from Cyanogen called CM11S. New features and apps remained exclusive to OnePlus One phones until now. XDA member ScardracS has ported CM 11S rom to Samsung Galaxy Nexus (maguro) for many users to try out.

I have been using this rom for over a day now. The phone is running smoothly and I haven't experienced any lag so far. The phone boots up quicker than on any other custom roms.

The CM launcher looks similar to the AOSP launcher but has a few more customization options. The launcher performs well and you won't experience any lag when you have lots of apps. It can certainly replace the Google Now Launcher.

The extra set of apps that come with CM 11S are Apollo, AudioFX, CM Ca…

No Brakes : Minimalisticand Addictive Racing Game for Android

As the name suggests, in No Brakes your only aim is to drive at the maximum speed possible. There's a single race track, no time limit or laps. Just don't drive into any walls.

The pastels (or pastel colors) which change as you gain momentum in the game are easy on the eyes. And Man, I love the soothing background music on the Game.

You get to different "speed zones" as you go farther in the game. Once you hit a new speed zone, you can hit higher speeds than you did in the previous speed zones and the car becomes more difficult to handle.

Your scores are ranked based on the Top Speed. If you sign in to the Google Play Games with No Brakes then the results and achievements are posted for your bragging rights.
