SwiftKey update in the works

Ever since starting to first use SwiftKey a couple weeks ago, I haven’t been able to stop. Not only does the app look incredibly slick, but it features the best word prediction techniques I ever seen on a keyboard. Instead of using a bar near the top of the keys to only predict what you’re trying to say, SwiftKey tries to also predict what you’re going to say next — and it does a great job of it. So how can SwiftKey continue to build on an already great product? According to Android Guys, the next update to the app will include personalization options, along with “improving response times, battery optimization, and a bump in the prediction algorithm.”

The details surrounding the personalization features being added to SwiftKey haven’t been outlined quite yet, but word is they will center around social networking apps like Facebook and Twitter, with support for Gmail as well. With the way SwiftKey already handles custom dictionaries, it’ll certainly be interesting to see how the company tackles further customizations.

While we’re on the subject, which virtual keyboard do you use?
