SwiftKey gets update and price cut
Wednesday has been a busy day for third party virtual keyboard app SwiftKey. Not only did the Android app receive an update today, the price of the paid version of SwiftKey has been sliced in half for a limited time. The update has added three new themes, Pitch, Dusk, and Regal, and has fixed some problems that users have been experiencing with personalization on Facebook. Inquisitive SwiftKey users will be happy to learn that the problem that made it hard to reach the question mark on the punctuation slider has been repaired as has the problem that caused the whole app to crash when the screen was rotated in the settings mode.

Some SwiftKey users who use the Opera browser will notice an improvement in functionality, while the update also improves the backspace feature when typing a password or a smiley. Also said to be fixed is the bug that caused the whole app to crash when pressing empty predictions. Lastly, the update also repairs an issue with the .com key in the Chrome URL bar.

If you're unhappy with the stock keyboard on your phone, we can tell you that for a limited time, SwiftKey is available for half price. That works out to $1.99 in the U.S., £1.49 in the U.K. or  €1.99 in the EU. If you do a lot of typing, we certainly would recommend SwiftKey, which earlier this year added its Swype-like SwiftKey Flow. But even if it is the traditional hunt and peck typing that is your style, SwiftKey will have you typing on your handset as if you were a member of the secretarial pool.

Finally gave me an excuse to pay for the full version. The Flow feature whoops Swype's.

No matter which keyboard I tried, Swiftkey is the best! Especially with its support for two active language prediction! I'm not a native english speaker so the feature is truly appreciated! :D

hope they'll make the smileys look like emoticons or image. Can't recognize some set of smiley symbols.

This was the Amazon Free app of the day a while back. I've enjoyed this app more than any other app.
