SwiftKey beta

A new beta version of popular keyboard app SwiftKey has been released today, adding the ability to bring in personalization info from Google+ and Evernote. (That's in addition to the emoji support added to SwiftKey beta late last year.)

The new SwiftKey beta 4.5.0.43 also brings performance and UI improvements for emoji and a new themes selection menu, alongside the usual assortment of bug fixes. You'll find more info, and the download link, over on SwiftKey's official blog.

Wake me up when they finally disable auto spacing after a period...

that and the ability to customize keys! I'd love to make my mic button always there, with a long press to swiftkey settings....

Why? There's supposed to be a space after a period. How is that a bad thing?

Usually. It's frustrating if you're trying to type "i.e." or the like. That took me an extra 15 seconds to get right. But honestly I'm not sure how to get around this, maybe other than i.e. and e.g. being suggested words when SwiftKey sees "i." or "e."

SwiftKey seems to be taking there time with this update. I really like the new theme viewer being able to see what the themes look like before applying them.

I'm fine with their taking their time on this update. The current official version doesn't have any issues that desperately need to be addressed, so as long as they keep the stream of betas flowing, I don't mind.

eahinrichsen says:

The last beta version had serious lag when opening the keyboard in Chrome or Google Now. This version seems to have fixed that.

I experienced lag in every app. Glad they fixed it. It's practically immediate now. Was frustrating before.

jkayakj says:

I'd you have the bought one, it will eventually get what the beta has for free.. Also since the app uploads your words etc to its servers there is no harm in having both the one in the store and the beta installed concurrently.. Both will also have their predictions synced
