A new android app is getting developed by two developers which can scan your social-media, text-messaging and Gmail output to get a better sense of how you write.
The keyboard app called SwiftKey 3 will be your loyal type-pal, if you type “LLeaseqallmee” this smarty would take it as “Please call me” and not as gibberish. If you grant it permission, it will scan your Facebook and Twitter identities, read your Gmail, subscribe to your blog’s RSS feed and look over your outgoing text messages to learn your style.
This personalisation has allowed SwiftKey to auto-complete words way too esoteric for the standard Android keyboard, Discovery News reported.
The developers after creating the app released its beta version on April. The app was refined and polished by the input of their VIP forum community and also based on their feedback new features were added and bugs were fixed.
Lets see some of the added features after the feedback from the beta users:
- Smart Space – adding to SwiftKey’s already cutting edge correction, Smart Space detects mistyped or omitted spaces across strings of sloppily typed words in real-time.
- Two new themes – a new theme, ‘Cobalt’, to match SwiftKey’s new look and feel, and an Ice Cream Sandwich-styled ‘Holo’ theme, as voted for by SwiftKey’s VIP community.
- An enhanced UI – a much larger space bar and smart punctuation key help improve accuracy and make it quick and easy to access common punctuation.
- Additional languages – SwiftKey 3 now offers support for an additional seven languages, bringing the total up to 42. The new languages are Korean, Estonian, Farsi, Icelandic, Latvian, Lithuanian and Serbian.
- A dedicated comma key, and the <123> key in the bottom-left corner.
- Refined the Smart Punctuation pop-up for better, easier use.
- Improved Smart Space functionality for easier email addresses and URL entry.
- Reduced lag on some devices for a more responsive experience.
- Reintroduced the long-press duration setting by popular request.
- Further improved prediction algorithms for even more accurate next word suggestions.
- Updated gestures for easier shortcuts.
The complete version is now available at the Google play and can be downloaded by users.
