Now, version 1.0.8 is available in the Android Market. The new version has two major changes-it has fixed an issue with contractions and apostrophes in auto-correction, and has fixed a prediction and voice dictation bug in areas of the software that have drop down suggestion text fields. For those using Android 2.0 or better, dictation is now supported for English, Spanish, French, German and Italian.
Another correction, pricing the app in U.S. dollars instead of Sterling, prevents some banks from rejecting the charge in Google checkout. Speaking of pricing, Swiftkey will be available in the Android Market for 99 cents until Friday when the price soars to $3.99. If you are interested in improving your typing speed and accuracy for a buck and still get change back, you have until Thursday at midnight to make the purchase.
