    The folks at Swiftkey have just updated the popular keyboard app and included a number of new enhancements and features. The most enticing new detail included in this update is the fact that the app is now FREE. Yep... you read that right. You can pick it up for zero dollars. You just need to head to the Google Play Store link below to grab it and try it out. Here's a full list of its most current features:

    Why make an app, charge 3.99 for it, then make it free? Hmmm. Maybe since it's free they upload your key presses to the cloud for future "study" ?

    I wonder if they will make ALL the themes free for those who paid for the app? So many questions, so little time.

    Paid users get free access to a 10 pack of themes. You've got to be signed into its cloud for it to see you've paid. Once logging in go to Themes, Packs, the $4.99 should be crossed through, tap it, enjoy.
    What about those who bought both the phone and tablet versions before they merged into 1 thus they got gipped back then as well. Since I got my tablet version on Google, phone version on Amazon when they merged them they said I had to pay for new all in 1 version again to use it on my phone. Shortly after I got the Note2 and the tablet version (legacy) worked fine.
