iOS 8: SwiftKey, our favourite Android keyboard, just launched for iOS 8 devices, and it’s bringing its best features along for the ride. Gesture typing, predictive text that learns from how you type and cloud-connected settings that you can use on multiple devices are just a few of what’s available in the iOS version.
The video above is definitely long-winded, but you do get to see SwiftKey Flow in action the way it will work on your iPhone or iPad. Additionally, if you’re familiar with SwiftKey on Android, you’ll be pleased to know that the iOS version can also learn from you as you use it to improve its word predictions and auto-correct suggestions. Just like on Android, you can (optionally) connect the app with your Facebook or Google account so it can learn from your emails and social messages too. SwiftKey for iOS also lets you keep two languages on standby at all times, so if you need to switch, you can with a single tap instead of having to load a whole new keyboard.
Finally, SwiftKey stores all of your preferences, settings and word predictions in your iCloud account, so any new device you install SwiftKey on can benefit from what the app has already learned about you. SwiftKey for iOS is free and available now. Hit the links below to grab it.
