SwiftKey X and SwiftKey Tablet X Version 2.2


SwiftKey X, developed by TouchType,  is a predictive typing app for smartphones launched a year ago on the Android Market, and the version for Android tablets, Swiftkey Tablet X, launched this summer.

Swiftkey is powered by Fluency 2.0, an AI engine that analyzes and learns users’ typing habits by monitoring how users type on Gmail, Twitter and Facebook (from  the feeds).

SwiftKey X and SwiftKey Tablet X Version 2.2 now supports 35 languages including Arabic and Hebrew (the previous version supported 22 – check the complete list at the end of the article), it has been fully localized for major European languages (previously the UI was English-only), the multi-touch framework has been optimized for faster typing, the Fluency engine is more efficient for prediction/correction, and it supports Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).

Additionally, the application collects various data related to users’ typing behaviors and it is now possible to share your typing performance on Twitter or Facebook. Personally, I do not see the point, however, some people have fun doing so.

The most valuable feature for me is the ability to type in up to 3 languages simultaneously with an impressive accuracy, which is a feature that none of the other popular predictive typing applications provide.
According to Joe Braidwood, Chief Marketing Officer, TouchType, only 17% of Swiftkey’s million users choose this app for this particular feature – the majority of them find the application more efficient than the default Android virtual keyboard and Swype.
