If you are an Android user, then you might not need any Introduction about SwiftKey Keyboard. Even though there are other Keyboards that are available on the market for Android, SwiftKey is the keyboard which people come back to always. This London based Company managed to attract many customers by introducing nice features. Some People like it even more than Google’s stock keyboard or Swype Keyboard.
SwiftKey Keyboard uses a bunch of well optimized artificial intelligence algorithms (it’s called “Fluency Engine”)at the background for predictions which predict the next word you wanna type with highest possible accurate level. One of the best features of this Keyboard that made it famous are – the “flow” swiping method for typing (which was introduced in SwiftKey Keyboard V4)- rather than typing individual letters for a word, you can simply glide your finger across the keyboard from letter to letter you wanted to type and release it. This feature is the favorite for many. It also took prediction mechanism to another level with “cloud sync” – which gives you the ability to get more customized predictions across your social accounts such as Google, Facebook and Twitter. It learns how you type and throws suggestions based on that.
