    Download: New Swiftkey Beta


    On 07.01.10, In Apps, by Kellex

    [​IMG]

    The previous version of Swiftkey beta has expired, but don’t worry, we have the new version for you today! If you are not familiar with Swiftkey, let me just say that if you aren’t a fan of Swype, then this should be your on-screen keyboard. It predicts words and sentences like none other. Oh, it also supports at least a dozen different languages which could come in handy.
    *For all users.
    Improvements include:

    - User language module handling
    - Appearance and GUI rendering
    - Punctuation handling
    - Autocompletion / correction
    - Third party app integration
    - URL and email handling
    - Decimal number entry
    Download: Swiftkey-NEW.apk


    Before installing this new version, make sure you UN-INSTALL the previous one.

    I downloaded the .apk file and tried to open it with Astro. I got a message saying it wouldn't open because it was a zip file. Then I noticed it changed to an Android and my phone locked up. I had to do a battery pull. Rebooting now.

    I couldn't use my phone to download it because it's on Megaupload and I couldn't see the letters I was suppose to punch in.

    Great. Now my Droid just rebooted. Shadez did you check this link out?

    this keyboard scares me. it knows what i'm saying better than i do. heck, sometimes i just go along with it's suggestions even if it isn't really what i wanted to say!

    link is fine, app is fine.

    Well, I pulled it out of my SD card. It caused my phone to loop into reboot. As soon as I could I mounted my SD card after a 30 second battery pull. After I took it off my SD card everything returned to normal.

    I'm not going to try it again.

    Perfect download for me. I think it is even better at guessing what I want to write than before!!! And recognizing web addresses so I do not have to backspace to remove the extra space after each period has got rid of my biggest gripe with the old version!!!

    This won't work if you download it over the phone. Download it to your computer and move the file to your SD card and then install it.

    It's worth it.

    This newest version seems to read my mind. It's remembering stuff better and suggesting periods and comma's where the old version did not. It's awesome.

    I'm sure you would have posted themes for it if there were any right Shadez?

    loving the new beta, keys are larger which was my main problem with the previous version.. this adds the keyboard size of the HTC IME keyboard w/ the already amazing text prediction..

    now if we could just get some skins...

    Ok this is a pretty cool keyboard, and you are right it's prediction is pretty cool and i'm finding i'm actually using some of the words they predict instead of using the word i was thinking of. kinda funny actually. Is there any way to get popup letters?? I cant seem to find out if they are there or not

    No you can have as many keyboards as you want installed. Just long press the text area and choose which one you want to use at the moment.
