SwiftKey 4.3 to offer three layout modes for phones, tablets and phablets, unify them in one app
0. phoneArena 17 Oct 2013, 09:37 posted on
SwiftKey 4.3 public beta is available for download, and the keyboard can now be placed in one of three forms, so even one-handed typing on a small tablet or a phablet is possible. The modes are called Compact, Full and Thumb, each offering a different layout for different scenarios...

Pity that the skin selection sucks. 5-6 skins is definitely not enough when none of them look like the stock android keyboard..

Holo and Cobalt look pretty much like the stock Android keyboard.

Damn straight! I have it on my EVO and my Note 10.1.

I was thinking the same. I guess it's the price to pay for great advances and upgrades.

Find the purchase in that list and click the menu (three vertical dots) and that will allow you to request a refund.
I suggest waiting until the actual release before doing so.

I have been using Swype since the day one I'm with Android. Swype has been allowing you to resize the keyboard and move it to wherever you like in a while. If Swype is developed by Apple and swiftkey is from Samsung, swiftkey will be sued by Swype

I have both Swype and Swiftkey phone then later tablet edition during sales.
I stick to Swype mainly because of its one app approach for both phone and tablet and also for providing a consistent layout for both phone and tablet.

Cool, one of the best keyboards out there, I kinda like touchpal and swype as well.

One of the best Android keyboards. But I wish it has a dedicated row for numbers.

That would be nice, like the Samsung keyboard on the Note 2 if i'm not mistaken.

I would only appreciate if there is just ONE decent aesthetically acceptable layout.

I love SwiftKey. It was worth the money.

It looks nice... too bad I can't use any keyboard other than the ICS one... had to download a custom one for JB.

I like Swype and have been using it for a while,,,. Just downloaded this one from the internet and i like it much better. And it's still in beta, Swiftkey is faster and more accurate.

I recently switched to Kii from SwiftKey due to the layouts. I tried the beta again on my SGS3 and I did not like the layouts. I find that SwiftKey's landscape layout to be uncomfortable to type on and results in a lot of keying errors. I switched to Kii because I really like the 13-key split layout in landscape. The only thing that keeps me from using Swiftkey is the landscape layout and the beta doesn't offer anything to me.
