Unlike iOS, Android comes with a host of keyboards to choose from should you not like the stock Android keyboard. SwiftKey is one of them and if you have been enjoying the keyboard on your previous Android devices, you might be pleased to learn that SwiftKey will be the default keyboard of choice on Samsung’s recently announced Galaxy S4! This was confirmed by SwiftKey’s co-founder and CTO, Ben Medlock who said in a statement, “Following our great success with the SwiftKey 4 launch last month, we are excited to confirm that Samsung has chosen SwiftKey’s innovative keyboard technology to be at the heart of its flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S4. This is fantastic progress for our vision of bringing the best touchscreen typing experience to as many people as possible.”

This is great news for those who are used to the way SwiftKey works, meaning that if you were to get the Samsung Galaxy S4, you will be able to start firing off text messages and email right off the bat without having to relearn the keyboard, or wait to download and install it. Those with multiple Android devices will also be able to get a feel of SwiftKey before deciding if dropping $4 on the keyboard app will be worth it. So, anyone else chuffed that SwiftKey will be the keyboard of choice for the Samsung Galaxy S4?
