    99 cents .60 pound.

    Going up tomorrow (or soon) to 4 bucks, go get it while its cheap.

    It is in the market as "SwiftKey" NOT Swiftkey Beta, which is the old one (expiring on the 30th).
    So its a new install and you won't see it as an upgrade.


    I really like this keyboard.

    If anyone has downloaded, please let us know.

    Change log is here:

    SwiftKey Blog

    - Simultaneous bilingual prediction
    - Improved keyboard layouts, with numpad and first iteration of arrow key support
    - Performance improvements, solving many lag issues completely
    - Enhanced settings options, including disabling prediction behavior for hard keyboards
    - Predictions shown in browser, search etc.
    - Language module handling improved
    - Voice recognition auto caps

    The following bugs were fixed:

    - Double word entry
    - Mixed upper/lower case display
    - Accented character handling
    ------------------

    The big one is that it gained a microphone
    and they fixed a boatload of bugs since the last beta.

    Oh, and for non Nexux One people (those without trackballs) the item above relating to
    arrow keys is very nice for editing things.

    The number pad is new, and there are a few smaller features (question mark key, swipe to delete full word). Thanks for the tip!

    EDIT: Dang, you beat me to it. I really like that the prediction works in search/browser, that and the numbers were my only complaints about this.

    Definitely runs smoother and seems to be less laggy.

    Thumbs up from me.

    I'm probably missing something, but why won't it access my contacts when trying to enter email addresses in gmail? I type in a name, and instead of looking for the email address is just throws a "@gmail.com" on the end of the name.

    I didn't care for it to be honest. found it to be slower on my Dinc than the stock and less accurate too.

    Are you in landscape mode? This is a known issue and one we're working on (but it's actually an Android issue; I'm pretty sure all third part IMEs suffer from it).

    You are definitely missing something because that works perfectly for me.

    Try setting Autocompleate on and autoaccept off.

    I just started typing a name and or email address and gmail app itself shows contacts that match.

    Developers are jumping in to answer questions in the forum. How cool is that!

    The issue with Gmail seems to occur in landscape mode, not in portrait. One of our best devs has it on his list to fix.

    I bought Swiftkey like two days ago. Love it. Prefer it to Swype, definitely. Worth the pocket change!
