    Hey everyone. I've been a longtime user of Swiftkey. For over a year, it has been my go-to keyboard. I found out about A.I.type two months ago and haven't looked back. When comparing A.I.type and Swiftkey X features side by side, one might not be able to tell the two keyboards apart. So, to oversimplify it, A.I.type is a beefed up Swiftkey.

    A.I.type offers the same type of functionality that Swiftkey offers: text correction, context sensitive prediction, and learning how you type. However, I feel that A.I.type does these things far better. I highly recommend A.I.type. Swiftkey X, imo, has always been the best keyboard on the market. To reiterate, I've been using SX for over a year. I can tell you without hesitation that A.I.type is my new keyboard of choice. Take a look at some pics:

    I use flex t9 which has predictive text like the two mentioned above but has a swype feature.

    I only used flex for the dragon dictation. I found that the text correction was very subpar, even worse than Swype. As far as the prediction in flex, I still don't think it holds a candle to A.I.type.

    Too many choices which are too small.

    I would rather have six choices over three, but an option to change this in the settings wouldn't hurt. Giving you so many options increases the chances of the correct prediction showing up.

    Updated first post showing a stat screen - A.I.type keeps track of several statistics so you can see how helpful it's been. Pretty impressive.

    After using it for a few messages now, i can say i am liking it so far. Seems fast and smooth, faster than swiftkey? Seems like i can more accurately type correct words rather than relying on auto-correct, not sure why that is...

    "Psychic word completions and predictions are generated by A.I.type’s servers on the Cloud." So it needs a constant internet connection to do predictions? I'm sure this isn't a problem given that almost everyone has a constant data connection, but how does it stand against Swiftkey X with the cloud-based predictions disabled? I would imagine there would be some latency in the predictions. It's like they took the cloud based gaming concept from OnLive and applied it to keyboards.... I wasn't very impressed with OnLive, lol. They have a 2 week trial, so I'll look at it.

    I am a big Swiftkey user, but i'll give this a run. Anyone knows if this supports other languages?

    i like the look of the keyboard but i can't make peace with the idea that they send everything i type to their servers for the prediction processing. i appreciate the fact that they are up front about this, but i'll stick with keyboards that don't require internet access for daily functions.

    Hi locofocos,


    We ran all of our tests against Swiftkey with our Cloud-based prediction turned off, auto-learning of both keyboards starting from scratch and only the first 3 word suggestions of A.I.type being evaluated. Since it's very hard to compare keyboard accuracy, we typed very slowly on both keyboards, testing the prediction and not the correction (even though we know exactly who wins in the other competition too). We tested many different texts, including Swiftkey's website(!) and the result was always very clear. A.I.type's prediction saved in average 25% more keystrokes than Swiftkey X.

    As for Internet connection - we calculated that an average user's traffic from and to A.I.type's keyboard will be around 4Mb per month. That's not an issue for most users. However, you can safely disable Cloud prediction and still enjoy quality prediction (thanks to the local Predictionary and MyType - the self learning module).

    As for latency in prediction due to slow connection - the system is tuned to use the local Predictionary if the Cloud is not quick enough. Auto-correction - that needs to be as fast as the fastest typist - is based only on local Predictionary.

    I'll be happy to answer any further questions.

    It's not a requirement. The feature can be completely disabled. You can also choose to have everything encrypted. Also note that password and credit card fields are not sent to the cloud.
