Users who have upgraded to iOS 8 are flocking to a nice new feature – support for third-party keyboards. One of those options, SwiftKey Keyboard, has been downloaded more than 1 million times since hitting the App Store a little less than 24 hours ago.
SwiftKey Keyboard is universal and designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini. Installing the keyboard does take a few steps, and the company has produced a quick how-to video. Click here if you can’t see it.
Along with an autocomplete technology that will suggest what word you’re likely to type next, SwiftKey can examine your typing style to become even smarter. It currently supports six languages – English, Portuguese, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.
We also covered some other interesting options in our roundup of third-party keyboards.
