SwiftKey, the popular third-party keyboard application for Android is getting a major update today, along with a limited-time 50% discount to celebrate the launch. Billed as “the most accurate and complete auto-correction and prediction available on any smartphone or tablet,” SwiftKey 3 brings a number of improvements over its predecessor, including omitted space correction, an enhanced UI, and additional languages.
The new spacing prediction capabilities of SwiftKey — officially known as Smart Space — build upon the software’s already impressive ability to correct typing mistakes and predict the next word in your sentence. If you type something like “Pleseecallmw”, for example, SwiftKey 3 will change that to "Please call me”.
The new version also includes a bigger space bar for better typing accuracy and a new punctuation key that will present several options with a long-press, two new themes, and support for Korean, Estonian, Farsi, Icelandic, Latvian, Lithuanian, and Serbian for a total of 42 supported languages in the latest release.
SwiftKey 3 is a free upgrade for those who bought it earlier. New users can find it on sale for a limited time in the Google Play Store and Amazon Appstore for $1.99, down 50% from the usual $3.99. There’s also a tablet version for the same price and free trial for either of them that expires after 30 days.
