Android: Not to be outdone by yesterday's Swype update, SwiftKey announced the launch of SwiftKey 3 today, complete with a host of new features, including improved error correction and "smart space", where the app automatically adds or removes spaces across strings of text, new UI themes and improved word prediction.
SwiftKey's developers tout that the update gives SwiftKey the most advanced error correction and text prediction available on an Android keyboard, and while SwiftKey is one of our favourite Android keyboards for just that reason, we'll let you decide. The new UI themes come in "cobalt", which updates the traditional SwiftKey design, and "holo", which helps the keyboard blend in with Ice Cream Sandwich. The keyboard also has a slightly tweaked layout with a larger space bar and dedicated comma key, both of which make it easier to type quickly and access frequently used punctuation.
SwiftKey 3 has been in beta for a couple of months, and the new version replaces Switkey X for phones and tablets. To celebrate, the app is on sale for half price at Google Play (today only) for $1.99. Current SwiftKey owners will get the update for free. What do you think of the update?
