SwiftKey devs release Clarity Keyboard for Android: barebones typing that can fix a whole phrase

Clarity Keyboard Beta is an experimental layout of the SwiftKey Greenhouse program, aiming to get rid of unneeded options, and simplify the way you type without unnecessary distractions. 

Compatible with Android 4.4+, it still offers the SwiftKey stellar prediction algorithms, but not the elaborate Flow gesture typing, for instance. It does add some innovative options to the typing process, though, such as a multi-word autocorrect, so that it can retrospectively correct the last few words you typed.

Still, if you have keyed in something quickly, and a "damn-you-autocorrect" situation arises, you will have the option to tap backspace, and the word would allegedly restore to what you actually meant. Give the Clarity keyboard a chance to soak it up, though, as it will need some time to learn your exact vocabulary, including slang, abbreviations, and nicks. 

Unfortunately, since it is still in beta, there is US English support only for now, and quite a few bugs and glitches here and there. If you want to be an early adopter, though, and take a promising new keyboard for a ride (from the makers of SwiftKey at that), hit the source link below, and send the SwiftKey devs some feedback, so that they know what areas needs the most work for Clarity to get out of beta.
