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.
