However it was only with iOS 8 that Apple finally introduced that feature to iOS. The good news is that if you were wondering which keyboards would be available at the launch of iOS 8, you might be interested to learn that SwiftKey has recently confirmed that their custom keyboard for iOS 8 will be launching alongside the platform update on the 17th of September.

SwiftKey for iOS will be pretty much the same as its Android counterpart. It will allow users to type using gestures, typing in two languages at the same time personalized suggestions, and thanks to its integration with Twitter and Evernote, the keyboard will be able to look into your previous messages/documents to learn your typing habits.

We’re not sure if the iOS version will be free like the Android version, although there is a good chance that it could be and that the app will have in-app purchases in which users can pay money to unlock certain features or themes. So, who else is excited for it?
