Almost all the major brands have been releasing their core apps on to the Play Store as it becomes easy to update those parts without pushing an update to the whole system. Sony has released the Xperia Keyboard in the Google Play Store. Although it is only compatible with Sony Xperia devices running Android 4.4.2 KitKat. Which leaves out a the Xperia Z and Xperia Z1s with T-Mobile (Story gave it a look.). The latest version of Xperia Keyboard (6.4.A.0.6) comes with features such as swipe typing, language learning and predictions. It learns a user’s language through GMail, Facebook and Twitter.
The new version also comes with data sync. It will backup and sync service with your Sony Entertainment Network account, assuming it is available in your region. This makes sure that even when you switch to a different Sony device, the typing experience stays the same. This keyboard includes all the major languages worldwide except Chinese, Japanese and Korean.
If you happen to have an Xperia device with Android 4.4.2, then be sure to update and give it a whirl. Assuming you haven’t already of course.
