SwiftKey Updates Languages to Make it Quicker and Easier to Type
The World’s Most Downloaded Premium Android Keyboard Passes Milestone of 5 Million Downloads and One Million Personalizations
New Users Can Get 25 Percent off SwiftKey This Weekend
London, UK – February 17, 2012 — SwiftKey, an award-winning smart keyboard for Android that understands how words work together to give better predictions and corrections, has updated its core language data to make typing informal messages easier (https://www.swiftkey.net).
The update comes as SwiftKey passes 5 million downloads, as well as one million personalizations, where users let the app learn their writing style from Gmail, Twitter and Facebook posts to further improve typing accuracy.
The update is available for free to current users, and to celebrate the milestone, this weekend new users can buy SwiftKey for 25 percent off the retail price, normally $3.99 / (£2.49)
“The technology behind SwiftKey has been developed so that we’re able to innovate quickly and rapidly develop new features and improvements,” Dr Ben Medlock, CTO, said. “Responding to user demand, we’ve now updated our language models to make it easier to use informal language with SwiftKey, making it faster at completing and correcting messages being sent to family and friends.”
SwiftKey, which is nominated for Most Innovative Mobile App at this year’s Global Mobile Awards held at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, is unique in that it creates a truly personal language model based on a user’s historic typing, SMS, social media and email accounts. The more a user personalizes SwiftKey, the better and faster the keyboard becomes at correcting and predicting their individual text input.
“We’ve had impressive consumer downloads of SwiftKey in the last year, reaching the No.1 top paid app position in the Android Market,” Medlock continued. “It’s significant that we’ve also now passed one million personalizations, showing the strong consumer demand for a personalized typing experience.”
SwiftKey can be downloaded from Amazon Market and Android Market. See https://www.swiftkey.net/download for more.
