SwiftKey X for Tablets and Phones is Now Out of Beta


Don’t look now, but our friends at SwiftKey have released SwiftKey X, a final, public build of perhaps one of the best keyboards available for both phones and tablets. The keyboard adapts to you, not the other way around, which is one of the best things we enjoy about it.

They’ve also added the awesomely awesome feature that looks at how you type in Gmail, Twitter and Facebook as well as new technology that adapts to where on the keyboard you’re actually typing to provide a very accurate and smooth experience. Long story short, ditch your keyboard and get SwiftKey X. It’s in the Android market now for $2 and is a free upgrade for existing users. [Market]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. I wonder if this will be a free upgrade from amazon (I “bought” the regular swiftkey from amazon – free-app promo)

    1. Well according to the support forum on Swiftkey’s website, they’re working on it. It will be a free upgrade for existing customers. Heres the link:

    2. I definitely hope that’s the case.

  2. “It’s in the Android market now for $2 and is a free upgrade for existing users.”

    Existing users meaning people that were in the beta? How does one go about upgrading for free? I’m not seeing it.

    1. I am an existing Beta user but Swiftkey is asking me to pay $1 to use the app now. It is not free.

      1. Well you never paid for Swiftkey before have you? I bought Swiftkey originally for $0.99 when they first got on the market. So the new version will be free for me.

    2. Existing users meaning people who already bought the old version of SwiftKey (pre X).

  3. Why does the market link say that its incompatible with my Xoom?

  4. @GawkerRedesignSucks I was in the beat and when I went to the market, a message popped up asking if I wanted to download. When I did, I was not charged.

    Can not download Tablet version. Market says the item you are trying to purchase can not be found

    1. Use the web android market. That seemed to work for me.

  5. @GawkerRedesignSucks:
    I had paid for the original Swiftkey, and now, in the market, under “My Apps”, the “Swiftkey X (Phone)” app has a status of “Purchased”, so I uninstalled the Beta, and installed the new one.

    1. I got it from Amazon. That’s probably what’s messing me up.

  6. okay, so a lot of people say Swiftkey is better because “it adapts to you”………

    but its difficult for me to imagine how a keyboard can adapt to me? what does that mean?

    regular keyboards have autocorrect, so regular keyboards “adapt” also…….

    how does this one “adapt to you” ?

    1. When you are setting it up, it asks for permission to scan your emails and texts, etc, to pick up habits when you type. Then, from there, the word prediction gets scarily good. I actually texted my girlfriend five times without typing more than one or two letters and then just tapping the predictions (unlike the regular Android keyboard, SwiftKey predicts the next word you’re going to type as well).

  7. I gave this keyboard a trial run a few weeks ago, but it (and SlideIT) are still inferior to Swype, imo.
