SwiftKey update removes jitter and improves flow

SwiftKey update removes jitter and improves flow
SwiftKey definitely gained popularity when it went free a month ago. There is good reason for that, as the custom keyboard offers comfortable typing, quality autocorrect and swipe inputs, and everybody's favorite emoji. However, with more users come more devices, and new bugs, problems, and complaints arise.

There were plenty of issues involving slow load times, stuttering, crashes, and even losing the bottom row of keys on some devices. Thankfully, the developers did not turn a blind eye to the woes of some users and have released an update today, to try and tackle the issues. It is worth noting that if you don't have any problem with SwiftKey on your device – you'd better wait before updating, as some users have complained that this patch has actually degraded their experience, whereas the app worked flawlessly on their hardware beforehand. The full changelog and download link can be found below.
