Android offers users a lot more customization options as opposed to iOS, which is one of the reasons why customers often go for devices running Google’s mobile operating system. On Android, users can choose from a wide variety of custom keyboards if they don’t like the stock offering, whereas on iOS, users don’t enjoy such liberties. SwiftKey happens to be one of the most popular custom keyboards for Android, and today SwiftKey for iOS makes it debut, not as a keyboard that gets baked in but rather as a standalone note taking application.
We had first heard about SwiftKey launching a note taking application for iOS last week, when a screenshot of the app was leaked by the infamous serial hacker @evleaks on Twitter. As previously mentioned, SwiftKey for iOS doesn’t replace Apple’s proprietary keyboard. Instead, it offers a limited experience inside the app itself, which the claims enables faster note taking on iPhones and iPads. Features include personalized auto-correction, word suggestions as well as Evernote integration. Users will also have the ability to share notes through AirDrop, Mail or Messages and they will be able to check personalized statistics within the app. SwiftKey for iOS is now available for download from the App Store, its free.
