SwiftKey arrives to iOS in cahoots with Evernote, pretends to be a note-taking app
You've heard about Evernote, right? You also know the SwiftKey keyboard, which has topped the Editor's Picks and bestsellers lists in the Google Play Store for a while now.

These two had the brilliant idea to join forces for the rumored SwiftKey debut on iOS, integrating the award-winning virtual keyboard into the SwiftKey Note application that can start rolling out to your iPhone as soon as today. 

Given how Apple sniffs at third-party anything on its platform, it seems like a brilliant move, as the app can be marketed as simply a note-taking one, of which there are thousands in the App Store.

The Note app uses SwiftKey for text input (evidently), with its excellent text-prediction, corrections and formatting functionality. Unlike the Android version of the keyboard, the app is free for now, so you can head over to the source link and grab it to see if it will appeal to you better than the stock iOS keyboard.

It is better than the stock iOS keyboard, but you can only use it within the SwiftKey app and nowhere else in iOS.

Because Apple doesn't let anything third party compete against it's own software.

But App store also have Video Players, Camera apps, Browsers (recently), Radios...

I really do not understand what is the logic behind Apple with banning some "competing apps" and leaving along others...

Can someone elaborate? cause this is one of the main reasons I love Android... if you do not like what came preinstalled, just get something similar and better

Third party keyboard or app store goes against Apple's Terms and Agreements.

Evernote downloads for iOS soar as people realize they can get the best keyboard out there.

Samsung licensed swiftkey into many of their high end phones and tablets.

So I just use it without the need to download Swift key from play store in fact Samsung ones work better at remembering my email addresses. Save a lot of keystrokes.

lol the iOS version of swiftkey (if the screenshot showed above is accurate) is designed so much better than all of the ones on Android. Swiftkey team really needs to put more effort into the design on Android.

I just tested it out. Turned out you can't swipe around to type like in android phones and tablets. Thats so useless. Apple needs to open up the OS a bit.
