TouchType this morning announced Swiftkey X, the latest iteration of its on-screen keyboard which is now in public beta status. Long known for its word-prediction capability, Swiftkey’s got a new look, and new features.
First and foremost is the setup process. Swiftkey’s new guide will walk you through downloading a language pack, installing and enabling the keyboard, and then the option of tying into your Facebook, Gmail or Twitter accounts.
Swiftkey has also seen improvements to its "fluency" engine, specifically with the addition of "Personal Input Modeling," which adjusts the touch-sensitive regions of the keyboard depending on how accurately you type.
Pretty cool, eh?
Now the important part: Swiftkey X is available on any smartphone running Android 2.x or above. It’s a free upgrade for current paid users, and it’s downloadable in the Android Market. We’ve got video with the Swiftkey folks as well as the full press release after the break.
