SwiftKey Flow Public Beta Opens For Android

Advertisement

SwiftKey’s been teasing the upcoming arrival of its new SwiftKey Flow beta for a while now, as we talked about last week when looking into the not-quote-Flow keyboard being shipped with the Galaxy Note II on Verizon. We knew that the actual arrival of the SwiftKey Flow beta was just over the horizon, but were still anxious to learn exactly when it would finally arrive. Well, that has come, and the SwiftKey Flow public beta is now underway.

SwiftKey Flow is like a mash-up of SwiftKey and Swype, combining SwiftKey’s predictive engine with the kind of speedy text-entry you’d get with Swype. Flow’s real benefit is that it offers you predictions in real time, so you don’t always need to complete a full gesture in order to enter a word.

Of course, since this is a beta, SwiftKey is hoping that any testers help contribute feedback in the hopes of working out any kinks and getting the keyboard working as well as possible.

There are two versions of the software, one for smartphones and one optimized for tablets. You can snag either through the source link below.
