Brought to version 7.0, the Swiftkey keyboard got the most important update since it got acquired by Microsoft in April 2016.

What is Swiftkey?

SwiftKey is a keyboard app for Android and iPhone that “adapts to the way you type, so you spend less time correcting your typos and more time saying what you really mean. SwiftKey users have saved an estimated 10 trillion keystrokes across 100 different languages, which adds up to over 100,000 years of reclaimed typing time.”

“SwiftKey’s hallmark predictive technology learns from your personal writing style, getting smarter over time. From your quirkiest family nickname to the sports teams you support, SwiftKey predicts the individual phrases that matter most to you,” say the developers.

The app is available on Google Play and the App Store, so you can go install it right now!

Customizability

The Swiftkey 7 keyboard is completely customizable, letting you pick from over 100 interface themes and from a key layout selection. For complete flexibility, the app also allows manual adjustment of the size of keys, thus compesating for the display’s size.

Lately, Swiftkey kind of lost users in favor of its competition, Google Gboard being the main beneficiary. In an attempt to put a stop to this decline, Microsoft is stepping up, thus managing to bring consistend improvements to the app in a very short time.

New Features

Though only available on Android for now, the new Swiftkey 7 update consolidates its additional options in a dedicated toolbar. Enabling it will open an extended menu, from which you can download stickers to insert in messaging apps; your favorites can also be saved in a personal collection.

On the list of features we can also add a new Calendar function, which allows you to save dates for future events and using them with ease in messaging apps.

The Clipboard function makes it so you can copy multiple messages, therefore keeping sentences safe for further use.

Of course, we would not have a messaging tool in 2018 without GIF support, making it easier to add animated images to your conversations with friends!
