SwiftKey celebrates Shakespeare with special QWERTY that lets you type like the Bard

SwiftKey celebrates Shakespeare with special QWERTY that lets you type like the Bard
Third-party keyboard app SwiftKey is celebrating the 400th anniversary of the death of one of the world's greatest playwrights. No, it is not Matt Stone, or even Trey Parker for that matter. We are talking about William Shakespeare. Anyone who has taken a junior high school English class has read at least one of the classic plays.

If you're familiar with "Romeo and Juliet," "Hamlet," "‎All's Well That Ends Well," and any of his other titles, you know that the type of English employed by Shakespeare is a bit different than the modern English that we are all used to. Still, it might be fun to see what Shakespeare might have written had there been smartphones available back in his day.

So SwiftKey has produced an app called ShakeSpeak that has stuffed the SwiftKey predictive technology with words taken from the body of Shakespeare's published works. This will allow you to write like the Bard himself. While the app is free, it does offer some in-app purchases. And you can send SwiftKey your sonnets, poems and plays by tweeting them to @SwifyKey using the hashtag #ShakeSpeak.

ShakeSpeak is available for Android devices only, for a limited time.
