For the first time since its introduction almost a month ago, Evernote-integrated app SwiftKey Note has just received a major update. Version 1.7 introduces a number of improvements based on user feedback. Most importantly, the app now features more responsive typing and prediction in long notes. And the selection and downloading of language packs is now also more reliable. Empty Notebooks are now grayed out in the Notebooks section, and iOS 7 users can also take advantage of strikethrough formatting in the format bar. Along with better functioning of the copy and paste option from Evernote, the update fixes a number of bugs that caused force close, syncing, or formatting problems. Finally, Notes and Usage Stats can be share via social networks Twitter and Facebook. A universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini, SwiftKey Note can be downloaded now in the App Store for free. Long popular with Android users, the predictive keyboard app autocorrects words as they are typed while offering predictions on the next word you input. The app is designed to both adapt and get smarter over time. Our own Robin Rhys highlighted the app in a recent episode of AppAdvice Daily.
