    TouchType Ltd, the developers of the popular keyboard add-on app, Swiftkey, just got a nice influx of investment capital. They received a $2.4 Million dollar boost of Series A financing to “accelerate consumer and OEM adoption.” This should bring them even more investment potential. It will also help them further improve their product and bring it even more into the public eye world-wide, by enhancing their commercial, executive, and technical teams. They plan to utilize these resources to further improve their SwiftKey products and their Fluency program that forms the core of the speech prediction function in the keyboard app. Additionally, it will further improve their relations with OEMs to help get their product pre-installed on future devices.

    This looks like an exciting time for them, and it's nice to see a developer living the dream!

    Good on them! They provide an excellent product to all android users! Maybe they can invest a few thousand dollars in developing a skinning API (my only complaint!) for the application ;)

    Sweet! These guys make an excellent replacement for the crappy android keyboard. I have no idea how anybody could use that horrible keyboard. Hope they make this product even better.
