SwiftKey for iOS to be available starting September 17th

SwiftKey for iOS to be available starting September 17th
One of the most popular third party keyboard apps for Android devices, is moving to the Apple iPhone, Apple iPad and Apple iPod touch. SwiftKey will be available for iOS 8 starting on September 17th, the same day that Apple starts pushing out the latest version of its mobile OS. For the first time, iOS 8 allows third party virtual keyboards to be employed on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Many iOS users familiar with SwiftKey, have been looking forward to the day when they could download and install the app on their iDevice.

SwiftKey learns how, and what you type. Certain phrases are remembered, allowing you to type a complete word with a single tap. Fewer typos are made when the program learns your style. And you can type in two languages simultaneously, without having to switch keyboards. If you're familiar with Swype, you will probably enjoy SwiftKey Flow, which allows you to slide your finger from letter to letter in order to type. Right now, this is will be available on the Apple iPhone and Apple iPod touch only.

SwiftKey Cloud allows your typing style to be examined from your Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, and Evernote accounts, and also allows your "personal dictionary" to be available to SwiftKey across different devices and operating systems. When it launches on the 17th, SwiftKey will support English, Portuguese, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.

SwiftKey was once a paid app, but is now free with in-app purchases available. There are surely a large number of iOS users looking forward to the 17th of this month, when SwiftKey becomes available to them.

Apple users are dieing for Androids features. Mxzy is over the moon for this. So sad and pathetic these users go through BS and restrictions, just for the Apple jnk logo.

Android phones have had lock screen notifications since like 2.3. They just made it standard in 5. Plus the notification shade has been accessible in the lock screen since it was released.

I prefer one, better way that works well for me as opposed to many customizable, subpar options

Bro I have a Note 3 if you saw my pic ;) I use Locky Free but I'm talking about default stuff. You can customize Lock Screen in iOS if you jailbreak broski so it's same same ;) it need the user interference

I have been using since i got my android. I tried few others like swipe and others, but no one is close to skype when to save your time. Apple original keyboard sucks, so small plus no foreign character and number support on same page,,,

Wonder if Apple regulated what kind of key press sound Swiftkey could install on it. The one on Android sounds so bad I stopped using the keyboard entirely.
