The new app harnesses the unrivalled predictive power of SwiftKey to give a completely new take on continuous input, offering real-time prediction as a user begins to ‘flow’ a word on the keys. This allows the word to be inputted by simply letting go of the screen as soon as the word is predicted, saving valuable time and effort. The user is also able to select relevant next-word predictions based on SwiftKey’s knowledge of their writing habits.
SwiftKey Flow has been engineered to simultaneously support both the traditional multi-touch tapping style as well as gliding. This empowers the user to seamlessly switch between the two modes as they please, ‘flowing’ a quick text if they only have one hand free, or tapping out a longer note with both hands at speed. Add the fact that SwiftKey constantly predicts the next word in a sentence and the user may not even have to tap or flow at all for some words.
The SwiftKey Flow beta test will begin “within weeks” for those registered on SwiftKey’s VIP community site, ahead of an eventual launch on Google Play.
