SwiftKey Flow beta review: shaping up to be the best Android keyboard

0. phoneArena posted on 06 Dec 2012, 06:45

Any lifting off is gone in SwiftKey Flow, as you can just swipe through the space bar, and the keyboard will place an interval for you. Coupled with the excellent text prediction algorithms, this makes for unholy sliding speed and accuracy...

Swiftkey lags too much on my phone.
It takes a few extra seconds to pull up the keyboard when I press the google search bar on my homescreen.
Is this any better?

Anyone else not able to download the Language Pack? The US one keep failing and I wonder if it's due to hight traffic on their servers or something. Been trying since I got the email about 4 hours ago.

Been using the swift key flow since this morning they emailed it at 3am..
I am VERY impressed thus far, I will certainly be purchasing the full version when available. My ONLY gripe is that there isn't an option for a designated number row. Which on the Note is a feature I have come to love. And its hard to live without once you have the convenience!

Because keyboards like this make the fruity fan boys very sad pandas! Haters gonna hate! Plus they have nothing better to do with their time than "thumb down" comments!
I got the original Swiftkey for free when Amazon was still doing their daily free apps and it's updated to the each new version and now have the beta installed along side it until it get the official update.

I love this keyboard. Never used any other since I have downloaded this one. But, I would stick to old version. I like swipe to delete function and swipe to type is more english speaking countries centric. In our country we chat in our native language making swipe useless most of the time.
