Not satisfied with all the April 1 shenanigans from the U.S., how about some with a British flavor to wake up to? We're all familiar with SwiftKey, and this latest 'innovation' takes it from our Android devices to our desktop or laptop keyboards. Say hello to SwiftKey Flow Hard.

Flow Hard allows users to type radically faster by dragging their fingers from key to key on a keyboard, instead of slowly tapping each letter individually. The innovative technology, built on SwiftKey’s award-winning NLP and Machine Learning input platform, automatically corrects typos and offers real-time predictions as a user ‘Flows Hard’.

Billed as 'gesture typing for the typewriter generation,' Flow Hard is all about efficiency. And having some fun! Another little fun thing to note, this came with an embargo, so kudos to SwiftKey for making the effort.

For more on SwiftKey Flow Hard check out the video up top, or take a look at the link below.

The first corporate April fools joke to actually put a smile on my face since they all started yesterday!

"... to try and make sense of the nonsense you type."


This is so well done as you can actually try it out on the website and it tries to figure out what you were typing

Good one!
I have a newfound respect for Swiftkey for this LOL

An hardware version of Keymonk would be more suitable for desktops.

Well done, Swiftkey. But I'm still bummed that most of your themes are more ridiculous than this April Fools joke!
