SwiftKey 3 updated with Jelly Bean and ICS Voice Input, new themes and more
My (current) favorite third-party Android keyboard, SwiftKey 3, was updated to version 126.96.36.1990 this afternoon. The latest version brings along with it two new beautiful themes (Sky and Fuchsia), bringing the total theme count up to eight.
The next addition to the lineup is Smart Space — a new feature that fixes typos, even if you miss your space button while typing. This should be a welcomed addition to those speed-fingered SMS junkies out there.
Also, we’ve got an easier-to-use new layout, with a larger space bar, quick punctuation key and other tweaks and improvements to enhance your touchscreen typing experience. Throw in improved Ice Cream Sandwich voice support, the addition of Jelly Bean voice support and improved typing prediction, and we’re looking at one hell of an update.
Last, but not least, 7 new languages have been added to SwiftKey’s dictionaries for our international friends.
If you haven’t tried this keyboard out yet, I strongly urge you to do so. Besides the lack of “swipe” technology, this is the most solid option available on the Play Store. It saves you a ton of time when typing out those important texts and replying to emails. There’s even a free 30-day trial version you can try out before dropping $3.99 on the paid version.
