    Swiftkey X is here, making text prediction even more personal











    Looking for a new keyboard for your phone? Swiftkey is worth visiting and worth revisiting if you haven't tried out the newer betas yet. Before I return to the states, I'm going to have this installed. I've already got it ready to download!

    this morning announced Swiftkey X, the latest iteration of its on-screen keyboard which is now in public beta status. Long known for its word-prediction capability,
    Swiftkey's


    got a new look, and new features.

    First and foremost is the setup process. Swiftkey's new guide will walk you through downloading a language pack, installing and enabling the keyboard, and then the option of tying into your Facebook, Gmail or Twitter accounts.

    Wait. What? Yes, you can choose to give Swiftkey access to Facebook, Gmail or Twitter. Why on Earth would you want to do that? Swiftkey can now use API calls to analyze your sent messages to determine your typing pattern, frequently used words, etc. Remember that you are the one who gives access to this. If you don't want to use it, you don't have to, and you have to give Swiftkey specific permission to do so. (TouchType's privacy policy
    can be found here


    .)

    Swiftkey has also seen improvements to its "fluency" engine, specifically with the addition of "Personal Input Modeling," which adjusts the touch-sensitive regions of the keyboard depending on how accurately you type.







    Pretty cool, eh?

    Now the important part: Swiftkey X is available on any smartphone running Android 2.x or above. It's a free upgrade for current paid users, and it's downloadable in the Android Market. We've got video with the Swiftkey folks as well as the full press release after the break.
