SwiftKey announces new Photo Themes feature and partnership with National Geographic

SwiftKey has just announced a new feature is now available for its Android and iOS keyboard – Photo Themes. Photo Themes enables users to upload their own images for the purpose of creating personalized themes on SwiftKey Keyboard.

To highlight the importance of the new feature SwiftKey has teamed up with National Geographic, more specifically with a contributing photographer, to inspire users with a gallery of 12 curated images exclusive to its keyboard.

For this purpose, SwiftKey has worked with Keith Ladzinski, a well-known professional adventure photographer who previously worked for National Geographic, Discovery Channel and ABC. All 12 curated images can be downloaded for free by all SwiftKey Keyboard users on either Android or iOS.

Moreover, SwiftKey announced that Android users will be able to customize whether or not their keyboard has borders on the keys. They can also decide whether or not they want symbols and secondary characters to appear on their SwiftKey Keyboard.

On the other hand, iOS users can now customize the color of the keyboard's keys. The new customization features are available from the Design menu.

Form over function. A solution looking for a problem. Sadly SwiftKey is becoming bloated.

I think these experiments are cool and all, but Swiftkey should release a separate Swiftkey Minimal without all those extra features - both to cut down on size, and to help those with older phones.
