With more than 250,000,000 users, SwiftKey is one of the most popular virtual keyboards available on Google Play. Leaving behind the trouble caused by last year's data breach, this app continues to be updated on a regular basis, and the latest update fixes some errors that came with the previous one, also adding support for 9 additional languages.

According to the official Google Play page, SwiftKey's update that arrived on April 10 comes with the following fixes:

  • no longer inserts double space after flowing
  • pressing Shift after flowing only capitalizes the next word
  • voice-to-text now features the correct Google App link

In addition to the above, there are the 9 new languages: Ewe, Marshallese, Northern Sotho, Kashubian, Manx, Chichewa, Tetum, Hawaiian, Dutch (BE). This brings the total of supported languages to no less than 162.

After 2,254,983 user ratings, SwiftKey has a score of 4.5 out of 5 stars. Almost 1.6 million users awarded it 5 stars on Google Play so far.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
