    For fans of SwiftKey, and for our devs in the community that use or develop for multiple platforms, we have some cool news for you! Swiftkey has just officially announced that they released their SDK for the various manufacturers to utilize. The SwiftKey SDK will be launched to various platforms beyond just Android including iOS, QNX/BlackBerry 10, Windows and more. Here's a quote from Dr. Ben Medlock, CTO of SwiftKey, “As we are interacting with more devices, technology that accurately understands what a user is trying to say or do with their devices is vital. It only takes a cursory look at user groups to realize that typing is one of the biggest frustrations that people have on tablets and smartphones. The launch of our SDK will give OEMs access to better typing experience, with their own look and feel.”

    Here's their full press release:

    Thanks for the tip, g_what!

    Nice, this is good news for devs on different platforms. Good news for us to increase the limited factory skins available and tweaks thought up by the minds of our android brainiacs:icon_ lala:
