The Swiftkey X Beta app has been out for over a month, and this mind-reading keyboard is ready to hit the streets! We’ve been testing this bad boy, and though the keyboard had its issues in the beginning, TouchType has been working very hard on this product. It seems lthey have everything set now. Swiftkey X has just been fully released, and they even threw in a nice tablet-optimized version: Swiftkey Tablet X.
Swiftkey is actually one of the most popular keyboards out there, and is very famous for its prediction capabilities. It “feels like it’s reading your mind,” since it actually predicts your next word without you typing a single letter. What’s scary is: most times it’s right. This is because of the keyboard’s ability to learn your typing habits (thanks to its Fluency 2.0 engine). You could say that this keyboard gets to know you better with time, but TouchType has added some ways to speed up the learning process. You can give the app permission to access your Gmail, Facebook and Twitter accounts so it may get to know your typing habits faster.
As mentioned above, there are two versions. One is Swiftkey X (for smartphones), and the other is Swiftkey Tablet X. If you’re ready and willing to purchase these right away, TouchType is offering them at $1.99 for 2 days (today and tomorrow). After the promotion, the price will be raised to $3.99 for the smartphone version and $4.99 for the tablet version. Those who have purchased Swiftkey previously will be able to upgrade to the full version of Swiftkey X, so there’s no need to pay again!
The guys from TouchType were nice enough to let us borrow some review apps of both keyboards, so look forward to a full review of both versions in a few days. For now, check out the video previews below to see what Swiftkey X and Swiftkey Tablet X are all about! If you happen to be convinced, head over to the market before their special offer ends and get them for $1.99 each while you can! Who’s purchasing one? Do you guys use Swiftkey? If not, which keyboard do you prefer and why?
