SwiftKey X

Last week the makers of the popular SwiftKey keyboard for Android released SwiftKey X – a new and improved app designed for phones and tablets. Today Amazon the smartphone version of SwiftKey X is Amazon’s free app of the day. The tablet keyboard still runs $4.99.

The keyboard’s claim to fame is its text-prediction system. While plenty of apps will try to detect the word you’re typing and show suggestions as you enter text, SwiftKey X takes things to the next level by guessing at the next word you’re likely to enter. This can make entering text on a tiny smartphone screen much, much faster.

SwiftKey X can also read data from your Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, and SMS apps to offer more accurate predictions.

The keyboard has a skinnable user interface so you can choose from light keys with dark letters and numbers, dark keys with light letters, or a skin based on the Google Android Honeycomb user interface with a neon blue glow.

In order to grab SwiftKey X while it’s free you’ll need to install the Amazon Appstore on your phone and then either click the “Get now” button on the Amazon website or within the Appstore app.

One reply on “SwiftKey X Android keyboard is available free from Amazon (today only)”

  1. Can’t buy it, because it says:
    “We are sorry…
    We could not process your order because of geographical
    restrictions on the product which you were attempting to purchase.
    Please refer to the terms of use for this product to determine the
    geographical restrictions. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.”
