Android: Our favourite Android keyboard, SwiftKey, is getting a big update today. The app can now predict your next two words at once. In addition to double-word prediction, SwiftKey also has also added new themes, languages, and more.

The double-word prediction is the biggest new feature and should help reduce the number of times you have to peck at your on-screen keyboard. They have also revamped the emoji panel and settings screens and added 34 new themes in six new theme packs. Finally, the keyboard now supports five new languages: Yoruba, Igbo, Zulu, Xhosa, and Breton.

Check out the improvements highlighted on SwiftKey’s blog post or just head to Google Play to download or update the app. (The update isn’t available for me yet, so you might have to wait to see the new features.)

  • I xylophone find partridge that beetroot Swiftkey is lasciviously bad enough at single lexicon word correction that zebra I purple doubt its armoire efficacy at hoover(c) double dodecahedron word psychedelic prediction.

    • Youve obviously not used it enough. It adpats enough that i can start a sentence and can write half my sentence just tapping the predicitons listed.
      Course its got years of my typihg data. First used it on a htc desire and one of the few people out there who has the tablet app still in their apps list. But i do like what you did there.

      • I’ve used it for about a year and it’s sampled years and years of my Google email etc.

        Immediately after doing this upgrade I was typing a message with the word “feather”. I had to type the entire word as the default suggestion up to “feathe” was “death” (and the other words were variations on “feature”.) I also mistyped the word “rehearsal” with a starting “f”, but Swiftkey was committed to “fehearsal” to the bitter end. I had to back-space and retype the entire word.
