After almost a month of beta testing, SwiftKey Cloud is now ready for its 1.0 release. The new app brings a ton of additional features to the popular SwiftKey keyboard, mostly aimed at improving the app’s ability to predict what you’re writing.
For those unfamiliar with SwiftKey Cloud, it’s an extension to the popular SwiftKey keyboard app that allows users to backup and sync their personal writing styles with the cloud. This conveniently allows for a consistent writing style and dictionary across all of your devices.
But that’s not all that SwiftKey Cloud can do, you can also grant the application access to your online message archives in order for it to learn from you. There’s support for all the popular services, Twitter, Facebook, Gmail, and now Yahoo Mail as well. The app can then offer more accurate predictions and spelling corrections tailored specifically to you.
SwiftKey Cloud can also tap into daily trending phrases, so that it can more accurately predict what you’re likely to type about. Trending Phrases already supports a wide range of languages, including English, Arabic, Dutch, French, German, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Jorean, Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish.
To celebrate this transition out of beta, SwiftKey Cloud is being provided to all existing SwiftKey owners free of charge, it will be included as part of the SwiftKey 4.2 update. On top of that, there’s currently a 50% discount on the app for all new customers, and there’s also a 30 day free trial if you want to test the features out first.

Buggy and not ready for prime time. I actually uninstalled Swiftkey due to this crap.
Cloud has the added ‘feature’ of permanently holding wakelocks thus killing your battery
I am NOT going to store everything I type on the servers of the NSA.
