SwiftKey updated -- bug fixes and more language dictation support
SwiftKey, the software keyboard that can read minds, has been updated to version 1.0.8 in the Android Market. Not a big change log, but what is there is nice to see. Makes us all feel like we aren't being forgotten after we've spent our money. The two big changes, at least in my opinion, are the new languages supported for dictation (English, Spanish, French, German and Italian) and contractions now include apostrophes in the auto correct area. Now I can't blame my typos on the keyboard any longer! The short version of the change log:
- Fixed issue with contractions/apostrophization auto-correction issue
- Fixed prediction/voice dictation bug in fields with drop-down suggestion text fields.
The Market entry has also been adjusted so the price is in U.S. dollars instead of British Sterling, as some banks have issue accepting charges in foreign currency through Google Checkout. One last thing to mention -- the sale price of 99 cents goes away on Sept. 30, and the price goes up to $3.99, so don't say we didn't warn you. Now go update, and put it through the paces. If you haven't tried SwiftKey yet, download links are after the break. [SwiftKey]
