SwiftKey 4 Brings 'Flow' Gesture Typing, Improved Word Prediction

Android: If you've been testing SwiftKey Flow and wondering when the new features would make their way into the full version of SwiftKey, today is the day. SwiftKey 4 is available now, and the new version comes with even better word prediction.

SwiftKey's new gesture typing, "SwiftKey Flow", is the banner feature here. It allows you to draw out your words without lifting your finger off the keyboard. The "Flow through Space" feature is in there too, which lets you type entire sentences without lifting up your finger between words. SwitfKey has also improved its error correction and word predictions, so the app learns about the words you use as you use the app.

Like previous versions, you can also connect SwiftKey to your Twitter, Facebook and email accounts so it can understand even more of the language you use and more accurately predict the words you're typing.

If you're not a fan of gesture typing, SwiftKey is still a great option. The app adjusts itself to your typing style. SwiftKey's error correction has been improved as well, and it's even easier to tap to correct words that have been erroneously filled in for you. If you're using the beta and want to keep using it (or a new user), the full version will set you back $2 at Google Play. If you're a current SwiftKey user, the update is free.

    Giving it a go today on the HTC One X. I have to say the accuracy of the predictive phrasing is a little creepy, but very handy.
