swiftkey_one_millionWith iOS 8, iOS users can finally get the option of installing third-party keyboards on their devices. While this is a welcome feature, is it one that many iOS users have been pining for? Well according to the number of SwiftKey downloads in 24 hours, it would certainly seem to be the case.

SwiftKey’s keyboard was released alongside iOS 8 and according to the folks at SwiftKey, it seems that they have managed to amass over 1 million downloads within a 24 hour period! It also seems that SwiftKey has managed to arrive at the number 1 spot on the US free app charts.

Both of these accomplishment seems to suggest that there are many iOS users out there who have been eagerly waiting for this feature. Either that or many are just curious about third-party keyboards and are taking SwiftKey’s keyboard for a spin. SwiftKey is currently a free offering which also puts them in a better position compared to Swype and Fleksy, both of which are paid downloads.

Presumably this is what allowed them to achieve their 1 million download milestone as it basically allowed users to check out what all the fuss is about before deciding if third-party keyboards are the way to go, but what do you guys think? Is this a feature that you have been waiting for?
