There are a handful of reasons I miss having an Android phone, and SwiftKey is one of them. Named the #1 startup in London this month by Wired UK, SwiftKey is a keyboard app for smartphones and tablets that learns from you to offer better auto-corrections and next-word predictions.
“We’ve always seen it as being about language rather than typing. We set out to transform the way you communicate using smartphones and tablets. We developed an approach to problem solving that we believe can be applied to many other applications,” says co-founder and CTO Dr Ben Medlock.
On the consumer side, the SwiftKey keyboard app has been the best-selling paid app on Google Play in the last year and has been No 1 in 58 countries.
