Swiftkey Keyboard Exits Beta, Enters Android Market as Full Application

Swiftkey has exited beta and is now available as a full application in the Android Market.  They keyboard, which combines some seriously good auto-predicting and multi-touch goodness, will be available for only 0.94 cents for the time being.  This is a keyboard replacement you are definitely going to want to pick up. It’s the best I have used.  Even better than Swype in my opinion.

Check out their site for more information.  Oh, and also let us know what you think of the final version.  I think it’s much better than the beta.

    0.94 cents? That’s less than one cent! What a fantastic deal! 😛

    Given the price I picked up a copy on my HTC Desire. It’s not exactly a pretty keyboard compared to the Sense one, but so far I like what they’re trying to do. Won’t know for sure if I’m keeping it until I’ve been texting in fury for a couple of days 😉

    Been using the beta of Swiftkey for a while now having first tried Swype. Prefer SK as I found Swype often misunderstand my sliding! The predictive part is fairly good and the full version seems to add some extra gesture based features compared to the beta.

    A bargain @ 60p for those the opposite side of the pond :-)

    Seems that not everyone will be able to get this app. Here is a quote from there FAQ page.

    “If you can’t see it in the Market, it means your phone does not support copy-protected apps (e.g. X10/ Droid X, or some modded installations of Android). This is a problem, as we’d love you to buy the app, but it may take us a little while to upgrade to a licensing model.”

    I do not know what this will mean for current beta users when the beta expires on Sept. 30th. I really love this keyboard and I am not really sure why Droid X (2.2) does not support so called copy-protected apps. Does anyone else have any info on this?

      Are you saying, the Droid X does not support this app?

      ‘Cuz I just bought this app from the market, and it works brilliantly.

    This keyboard is the best one I’ve used! I personally really like it. Would recommend it to anyone!

    I have Swype and SwiftKey on my phone and I haven’t used Swype since I installed SwiftKey…

    Unlike Swype, I can’t comment on the quality of their support, because I have never needed to contact them.

    Swype, on the other hand, is bug-riddled crapware. Check out their own forum. There are multiple bugs with “no current solution” as the default response.

    Was looking forward to getting the paid version after switching back and forth between SwiftKey beta and Swype. But its not showing up on the market for me. I have a rooted Droid1 with Ultimate Droid 4 ROM.

      @Joe – That would likely be why it’s not showing up in the market.
