Swiftkey gets updated, adds Google+ and Evernote personalization

by: Andrew GrushApril 3, 2014


Swiftkey for Android is one of the more popular 3rd party keyboards out there, in large part thanks to its excellent predictive capabilities. Now a good thing is getting even better, as a new update has arrived.

The biggest change in the update is the introduction of new personalization options that allow the app to collect typographical data from Google+ public posts and from Evernote. The idea is that collecting this information should make the keyboard predictions and suggestions even more accurate. If these features sound familiar, that’s because they’ve been available for Beta users for a little while now.

For those not keen on sharing more information with SwiftKey than you have to, it’s important to note that these features are opt-in and not forced upon you. In addition to the personalization changes, the update also brings bug fixes that should resolve forced closes and other crashing issues experienced by some Swiftkey users.

To grab the latest version of SwiftKey, you’ll want to head on over to Google Play.

    Just wish swiftkey had a separate number row. I like that feature on the Galaxy Note 3 and won’t use a keyboard that doesn’t offer it.
