1.0 out of 5 stars Outdated version & price June 15, 2014
By David
Verified Purchase
SwiftKey is now at version 5.x and is FREE to all. They've changed their business model; giving the full version away for free & selling keyboard themes (in-app purchases).

I've noticed Amazon rarely posts revision updates for paid apps, I don't know why but beware.

I have the LG Optimus V, which does not have a physical QWERTY keyboard. My phone was pre-installed with Swype, which is a great idea but just doesn't work well if you're the type of person who likes to be quick with sending messages. The flaw of Swype is that the QWERTY keyboard layout has a lot of frequently used letters near each other or in the same Swype path. "Our" always became "out," "put" or "it" or vice versa. I could never get the correct your/you're. And on. It remembered every custom word I typed, even typos and would annoyingly always select those words over others. If you change your thought mid-word or realize you swiped in the wrong direction, you need to stop, let it display a word and then do a long hold back to delete the word. Some characters that are used a lot, like question mark, require a long hold. In short, Swype was annoying and took up too much time to correct.

I really lucked out seeing Swift Key X for a one-day free download. This is the first daily free app I've downloaded that I think is truly worth paying for. The keyboard is so fast and easy. I can seriously get like 30% accuracy and it will still know what I'm trying to say the vast majority of the time. I can type rapidly with my thumb, one-handed, no problem. The keys used most are short single-click. You can customize the layout to include arrow keys. It's actually way more customizable than Swype because Swype wasn't customizable at all. The options Swift Key X offers will fit your typing style. It learns what you say based on your emails and texts, but I turned off next word prediction because I found it didn't always get the next word right and I like the flow of just typing what I'm thinking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Favorite Android Keyboard July 21, 2011
I've used several different Android soft-keyboards, and this one is by far my favorite. I found Swype to not be so useful once the novelty wore off, for example.

Contrary to the privacy fear-mongers, I believe SwiftKey is pretty clear about what they do. Be aware that if you opt-in to certain personalization options, Swiftkey does collect the information you allow them access to in order to optimize your experience. This can include SMS, Twitter, and Facebook (I chose not to give them access to the last one). If you choose not to, I believe it is still an excellent keyboard, and recommend it highly. They've made it clear that they will collect and use statistical information as well, but that's a far cry from publishing your credit card info.

Overall, I think there isn't anything suspicious about what SwiftKey does. It's a fantastic app.

4.0 out of 5 stars To swiftkey or swype, that is the question. July 21, 2011
By Jay

Ah..Swiftkey X, I have been beta testing you for quite some time. You were quite buggy but, low and behold: Amazon has your non beta form free! :) I couldnt install the english language pack until i uninstalled the beta version. No problem there. Then I did the usual business where you pry into my language lingo and learns which words i use the most and predict what im soon going to say. A little creepy but, its okay. I change my input method to swiftkey and get to texting.

Now let it be known i have a G2 and i can easily flip my phone horizontally and flip it for a physical keyboard. Which, is what i do 85% of the time. However there are those occasions where I need to send a text with one hand and well....Swiftkey is okay but its just not as natural as Swype. I can easily text faster with Swype by lazily dragging my thumb across the virtual keyboard than typing half a word and selecting the word from the list. Be that as it may, im more of a precise texter so speed and precision is what I aim for the most.

Thats not to say that Swiftkey X isn't fast or can be precise. Its just that i'm used to Swypes speed and the way it handles texting. If you're an avid Tweeter and Facebooker (something I'm not these days) Swiftkey X can possibly be your new best friend predicting your every word.

Despite my personal preference and the fact that Swiftkey X beta was buggy for the G2. I say if you dont have a physical keyboard or if you dont like Swype give Swiftkey X a shot. Its worth it, especially if you're an avid social networker and texter. Once it learns your texting pattern you shouldn't have any issues with it. Also be aware that Swype 3.0 is beta testing, so if you're curious give that a try as well. Overall, I say if you text beyond 5000 texts a month and you love the social networking scene and you lack a physical keyboard, heck even if you have a physical keyboard give Swiftkey X and chance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Keyboard! July 21, 2011
I just bought this in the Android Market the other day for $2 (half off deal) and it's well worth $2 or $4. But it being free... you can't pass this app up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Keyboard December 24, 2012
By indyb6

Edit: This app is updated in Amazon App Store. I really like the new Swift Key Flow. Better predictions than stock android swype. Also, they have a ton of new languages now, including hybrids like 'Higlish'. Gotta love it!

Old review:
Great keyboard, but why can I not update to Version 3.1?

Its on ver3.1.x on Google Play Store, but Amazon App Store does not let me update it to that version. I'm stuck on ver 3.0.x

Also, just noticed that the predictive input is missing, as I'm typing this review on my device.
