One of the features in iOS 8 that Ive been most excited about is support for third-party keyboards. And SwiftKey announced today that its keyboard will landon Wednesday, Sept. 17, the same day iOS 8arrives to the public.
The company recently offered a first look at how the solution will work on iOS. Easily the nicest feature is SwiftKey Flow that will allow users to type by sliding their finger from letter to letter. It will only be available on the iPhone and iPod touch version.
Along with autocomplete, which suggests which word youre likely to type next, the keyboards autocorrect adapts to your specific typing style.
The SwiftKey Cloud connects through a Facebook or Google account and then can store information about a users typing style that can sync with other devices. It can also examine Facebook, Gmail, Twitter, and Evernote activity to become even smarter.
With intelligent language detection technology, users can type in two languages without switching keyboards. At launch, SwiftKey Keyboard will support English, Portuguese, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.
