SwiftKey for Android gets Dark Mode support, redesigned Settings area
Although some time has passed since we talked about SwiftKey, the Microsoft-owned virtual keyboard app is doing great and is being updated regularly. The latest refresh for the Android version arrived yesterday and it comes with two noticeable changes: Dark Mode support and a redesigned Settings area.
According to the official SwiftKey Keyboard Google Play page, the brand-new look of the app comes with redesigned Settings that "make things easier to find and your SwiftKey Keyboard easier to customize" and the Dark Mode is available as an option for devices running Android 10. For Android Pie, the app adopts the system-wide Dark Mode setting — at least this is what happened in my case.
While the aforementioned Google Play page claims that the latest version, released yesterday, is labeled 126.96.36.199, I am running 188.8.131.52 and this is definitely not a beta. New users should know that SwiftKey for Android only needs 14 MB of space, has been downloaded by more than 500,000,000 times so far, and requires at least Android 5.0 Lollipop. With a rating of 4.4 out of 5 after more than 3,400,000 users shared their opinion on Google Play, SwiftKey is one of those apps that any new Android user must try. I am not saying that Gboard is bad, but why not get something better if it's free and does not need a top-of-the-line handset to run smoothly?
