Update to SwiftKey for Android improves keyboard's speed and performance

13
SwiftKey for Android has just received an update that improves the speed and performance of the popular third-party QWERTY keyboard. Among the changes, the time it takes for the keyboard to appear on screen has been reduced by as much as 20%, and it also disappears from the screen up to 30% faster. In addition, you will notice faster switching between fields (a 15% to 50% improvement), and typing is now 10% to 18% more responsive.

SwiftKey has also added support for 12 new languages which include Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Oriya, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu, Nepali, and Sinhala. The third party QWERTY now supports 81 different languages. And for those who like to send messages with emojis, over 800 are available with the app. By looking at your SMS messages and other compositions, SwiftKey learns your writing style. This makes it easier to come up with the right word prediction. Over time, SwiftKey will know more about you than you know yourself.

Today's update is available now from the Google Play Store, where you should find it under My apps.
