SwiftKey Beta now has a Clipboard feature
SwiftKey is one of the oldest and most respected third party keyboard apps in the Google Play Store. One might assume that the company behind it would be resting on its laurels and letting improvements and innovations cause no care or concern, yet such is not the case. SwiftKey is constantly being updated with new features and functions, and TouchType Ltd has even released a Beta or two. Indeed said Beta build is where the latest addition has been added.
SwiftKey Beta now contains a Clipboard feature that allows users to
The feature is explained as follows:
Introducing: Clipboard! With this feature in our beta, you can now access text directly copied from Android or create your own custom clips. All Clipboard items can be easily accessed via the Hub, giving you control over copy and paste and make the whole process easier.
And the following key points are posted. The Clipboard:
- Remembers the snippets you’ve copied/cut for an hour
- Copy multiple snippets without losing all but the last one you copied or cut
- Pin the ones you want to keep for longer
- Add your own commonly used snippets such as emails and addresses
- Find it in the SwiftKey Hub and Settings
- Doesn’t interfere with how Android’s copy and paste works
For all those who spend tremendous amounts of time typing on their phone – or tablet – and make use of SwiftKey, this latest addition is perhaps the best yet. Remember, though: the feature is only currently available on the Beta build of the app, not the standard version. Assuming everything goes smoothly, TouchType Ltd is likely to bring it to the official consumer build in the near future.
Those who already have the beta app can simply update it on the Google Play Store, or for those that are in need of it, please find the appropriate link below:
