The extremely popular 3rd party keyboard SwiftKey is about to get a whole lot better. We’ve been hearing tons lately about the upcoming SwiftKey Flow keyboard that will take on Google’s own gesture keyboard, and Swype, but their latest video shows us just how awesome Flow will really be. It’s called “Flow Through Space” and shows that we’ll soon be able to type without ever lifting a finger. Just flowing from word to word all with one seamless motion.
As you all know, we’re huge fans of SwiftKey keyboard here at Android Community. Their awesome keyboard layout, themes, predictive and and “next word” prediction is as good as it gets. SwiftKey 3 has made typing on smartphones and tablets so much better. However their new SwiftKey Flow looks to be even better and bring on an entirely new experience that could trump both Google’s new Android 4.2 Jelly Bean keyboard, and Swype all in one go. Check out this awesome video below:
Flowing through space without ever lifting your finger. SwiftKey Flow is more than just a gesture-based keyboard, it’s an entire new keyboard all together. You can clearly see right on the video the usual typing methods, and the usual swiping method. Then right at the end they just flow from word to word without lifting their finger, only going through the spacebar. SwiftKey’s advanced artificial intelligence and prediction engine picks up all the words and neatly puts out the entire sentence with ease.
Impressive right? It looks like SwiftKey Flow is all but ready to rock and we should be seeing the official beta release to the public soon. If you weren’t excited about SwiftKey’s latest and greatest keyboard already, you certainly should be now. This is an awesome next step for keyboards, and we’re excited to give it a try. Stay tuned for a hands-on as soon as possible.[via Reddit]
