SwiftKey Flow – Swipe-based gesture typing just like you saw earliest in Swype keyboard.
SwiftKey Flow Through Space – Basically SwiftKey Flow without having to ever raise your finger. Yes, you can continuously swipe and the keyboard would predict the entire sentence.
Back in December 2012, SwiftKey released beta apks for their popular keyboard app with new features in the work – Flow and Flow Through Space. Through an update earlier today, the app is branded to SwiftKey 4, in which the two Flow features are integrated.
If you purchased SwiftKey 3 before, just update the app and the features would be available in the upgraded SwiftKey 4 app. If you haven’t purchased for whatever reason, there wouldn’t be a better time than now to do so (well actually there is – wait for promotion!), but that’s not the point. I mean the keyboard is finally complete, although there are a couple of things I need to get used to personally because of enabling the Flow features. For example, I’ve grown so used to swiping left to delete a word, instead of tapping or holding the back key. Now that won’t work if you’ve enabled the new Flow features; it’d predict a word if you swiped left.
Other than that small gripe, there is nothing much to complain about this update as the prediction system on SwiftKey has already been the leader in the keyboard battle for a long time and the integration of the two features is just icing on the cake for SwiftKey 4. If you’re a first-time user, there’s no harm in trying out the trial version and see if you find it worthy to purchase.
