Swiftkey App for Tablets

TouchType has a tablet version of Swiftkey with some improvements.

The App is not news  but that fact that it can now be used on tablets is. The App was created to coincide with the release of Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) and the launch of the Xoom tablet from Motorola. This is an improved version and with this version you will enjoy a Fluency predictive text engine and easier thanks to optimized keyboard layouts and multi-language support. The App features a major redesign of the Fluency prediction engine which applies patent-pending AI technology to offer next-word prediction before a single character is entered.


There are also advanced learning algorithms and it can also analyze on-line profiles in such things as Facebook, Gmail and Twitter to help personalize the typing experience to individual writing styles. With Swiftkey you can either choose to select each suggestion or if you prefer you can just go ahead and trust the system and get an on-line update out A.S.A.P. You can also enjoy multi-lingual inline spelling, grammar and mistype correction. This feature uses a context sensitive approach that is based on “real-time analysis of user-adapted probability distributions.”



This App is going to be the first product to sport the Motorola XOOM tablet and you are not going to manually input the language you want since it automatically determine the input language. The keyboard layout have been changed for easy two handed thumb input and you choose to type in either QWERTY, AZERTY and QWERTZ. The tablet version of Swiftkey is said to be 50 per cent greater text entry efficiency than other products on the market.

You can even dictate in English, French, Spanish, German and Italian and caters for custom skinning to add a personal touch to the interface. If you are interested in the App it is available now for a limited sale price of US$1.99 from the Android Market.
