SwiftKey updates Android app, adds SwiftKey Stats
Back in  January, third-party keyboard app SwiftKey introduced SwiftKey Stats, a feature for its Android app that keeps track of certain data generated when you type using the app. While SwiftKey Stats was made available on the SwiftKey for Android beta, starting today it is offered on the regular SwiftKey for Android app. With this new feature, you'll learn more about yourself than you would have by sitting on a shrink's couch for an hour. For example, you will find out the top three to five topics that you write about the most.

You will also find out which emoji you use the most, and the one that you use much more than the rest of SwiftKey's users. This is called your signature emoji. SwiftKey Stats also tracks how many new words were added to your personal vocabulary. This figure starts at zero when you install the app, and the sky is the limit.

All of the data generated by SwiftKey Stats is presented in colorful graphs and charts making it easy to learn a few things about yourself. You can share the data with your friends or family if you choose, or keep it to yourself. First things first though. You do need to install SwiftKey for Android (it's a freemium title), and you start the process by clicking on the sourcelink below.

I don't have anything against MS or the US, but after they bought SwiftKey I was kinda disappointed ...found out that SK was a British company who sold theirself to an American company like Cadbury did. Anyways...I still prefer Swype.

Btw, on the New York article I think you need to change CV to resume so the Americans know what you mean :p

I feel that since Microsoft owns SwiftKey, it will be easier for Microsoft to get people's passwords and other things that people type in. Considering Android is the most used OS on the planet now. I feel like Microsoft is always trying to take Android customers away.

Never trust Microsoft. Nokia did. M$ will try to get Every possible info about Android users in order to take advantage of them and the platform.
Android will replace Winows at the desktop in few years and Microsoft will fight that to death.
