SwiftKey 3 Beta launches, no space bar required (video)
Just when we thought our favorite Android virtual keyboard couldn’t get much better, TouchType decided to prove us wrong by launching SwiftKey 3 Beta. If you’re one of the product’s 30,000+ VIP users, you’ll want to get your hands on the company’s newest creation right now, for free. What’s new? The space bar is no longer required, for one — Smart Space detects and corrects “miss-typed or omitted spaces across whole phrases.” Paradoxically, that same space bar is now wider, just in case you’re feeling nostalgic. Smart punctuation further enhances the UI, with language-specific improvements in tow. In fact, SwiftKey 3 offers support for seven new languages — Korean, Estonian, Farsi, Icelandic, Latvian, Lithuanian and Serbian (for a total of 42). Finally, you’ll find two lovely new themes, Cobalt and the Ice Cream Sandwich-inspired Holo. We’ve been playing with TouchType’s latest and greatest for a few hours now on both our HTC One X and our Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 and we’ve stopped using the space bar completely. Did you notice? Wedidn’tthinkso. Check out the gallery of screenshot below, hit the break for a demo video and the full PR, then follow the More Coverage link to sign up as a VIP.
