As the line between smartphone and tablet continue to blur, our needs become confused. We need a keyboard that can adjust, not force us to interact with our devices in a way we don’t want to. The new Swiftkey app may be just what we’re looking for.
The wait for Android 4.4 Key Lime Pie has many of us going crazy. So much in fact that Google changed the name of the next version of Android to KitKat, and launched a full fledged KitKat campaign with chocolate galore. While we're all waiting for an announcement from Google, a few eagle-eyed fans at AndroidPolice stumbled on some new Google Keyboard screenshots (from Google themselves) in the Play Store potentially showing us Android 4.4 KitKat.
It seems that there is no stopping wearable computers, especially smartwatches like Omate's TrueSmart, from becoming the next big fad. But with any nascent technology, there are bound to be kinks to be ironed out and questions to be answered, such as one of the most prevalent question of all: how will smartwatches deal with text input?
Earlier this week we found a neat new 3rd party keyboard for Android called Dynamic Keyboard. The promise was a dynamic and fluid typing experience that will predict words, and the keys will dynamically change and increase in size along with prediction. Allowing for a faster, more accurate typing experience. Well, we have the app so check it out below for more details.
Third party keyboard options for Android continue to be a popular place for innovation. This week we saw a glance at a new app called Dynamic Keyboard, and now this afternoon we have a new start-up promising 80 WPM on a tablet. From the co-founder of Swype, check out his new tablet app called Dryft below.
Third party keyboard alternatives for Android is a booming business. From Swype, SwiftKey, Fleksy and more. Today though we've just been tipped off about an awesome looking new app called Dynamic Keyboard. And it's exactly that. A Dynamic keyboard that uses a powerful prediction engine like most, but the keys will actually get bigger and easier to hit as you type, and as it learns.
When Google released their Jelly Bean keyboard to the Google Play Store it made lots of users happy, myself included, and today it appears to be receiving a quick little update. If you're not a fan of Swype or SwiftKey Google's stock keyboard is your best bet, and today's update is adding a few little things for tablets.
The need to type out long emails or large amounts of text is a situation that anyone with a mobile device is familiar with. Even with today's large smartphones, the task can still be a chore, especially for those without tablets or laptops at hand. As such, portable keyboards have sometimes become necessary, and One2Touch's Softpad S1 is promising to be the best of its class.
There isn't a shortage of available keyboards for Android users, however as of today another has arrived in the Google Play Store. This latest is called Minuum Keyboard and it has arrived as a public beta. While today marks the entry in the Play Store, this isn't the first time we have heard of this keyboard though.
SwiftKey Cloud beta saw an update earlier in the month and it looks like another update has already arrived. This latest takes the app from 184.108.40.206 to version 220.127.116.11. As we have seen in the past, this latest beta release brings the updated version for both smartphones and tablets. Or more important for those using the keyboard -- this release has brought a handful of improvements.
