Swiftkey is the popular 3rd party keyboard for Android available in the Android Market. We have mentioned it here as being the most popular downloaded keyboard for Android. They are still hard at work and are developing a few great ideas as well as a tablet version.

If you sign up (for free) for the SwiftKey VIP program and join the beta you can too get access to the latest and greatest features they are testing and integrating into the highly popular app. Not only that but it was just updated in the Android Market for both phones and tablets also and has some great new features for that update as well.

Recent Phone Changes:

* Adjusted prediction parameters to improve prediction and correction
* Improved response times
* Improved battery usage

Tablet Changes:

* Adjusted prediction parameters to improve prediction and correction
* Increased split-screen key size
* Improved response times
* Improved battery usage
* No keyboard animations (for improved speed)

It looks like they are hard at work making some great and much welcomed fixes and changes. I can't wait to see what else they have in mind. So far I've really enjoyed typing on my Motorola Xoom with the stock keyboard. I am extremely fast and accurate on it, I just might have to give this SwiftKey for tablets a try now though. For more information as well as signing up for the betas go ahead and sign up now here for SwiftKey VIP. Feel free to report back here in the comments on how you like Swiftkey for your phone, or tablet.

      Yeah it looks like this has a whole new skin, unless that’s just for the tablets. That’s probably my biggest beef with SwiftKey I’m not a huge fan of how it looks, I like the stock Gingerbread keyboard looks better.
