Free Download SwiftKey Beta For Speedy SMS Typing On Android

SwiftKey brings the future of text entry to smartphones. It uses TouchType’s breakthrough Fluency™ technology to predict the next word you want to type, before you even press a key.the Swiftkey beta is now available to download directly from the App Market,
and once installed , select ‘Enable’ and then check on the box next to ‘SwiftKey Beta’ as the first step. Before you are ready to use it, a warning message will pop up stating that the input method may able to collect all the history text that you typed before, including those sensitive personal confidential data and etc.

Next, the interface will prompt users to confirm this as the default input method. In order to support multi-language input, users have options to download additional language module selection such as English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese and many more. Typically, it takes about 3MB to download the language module so it is advisable to have WiFi connected for faster and cost efficient versus 3G cellular network connection. Unfortunately, there is no Chinese input as of now so hope that it will be under consideration during the official release. While there seems to be slight improvement over its default input method but one major advantage here is its ability to learn from all the previous text messages that makes the prediction much more accurate than anything else based on individual typing habit and experience. In order to enjoy such benefit, go to Settings -> Language & keyboard -> SwiftKey Beta settings. Under Language Modules –> My Language –> select Learn From SMS and you are done. And the next and every time you intend to type certain word, those matched history keywords will be prompted in suggested windows ready for selection.

In our early tests, we’re pretty darn impressed, and yes, it’s definitely worth the $0.00 price tag. Get your download on right now, or hop past the break for a video demonstration if you still need convincing.
