When I switched to an Android smart phone, I initially missed my BlackBerry's keyboard when writng emails and text messages. Then, I found this app and have been very pleased with the results.
With SwiftKey, you will type less because it predicts the next word you're going to input. While you might think it is impossible for an app to be that smart, it actually works really well.
The app personalizes your typing experience with data from your Facebook, Twitter and Gmail, as well as your sent SMS messages.
So it eventually starts suggesting names of people or words you commonly use in conversations after you begin inputting the first couple of letters.
For example, the app figured out that I was texting my daughter about the NBA finals and got good at predicting basketball terminology.
With the Android Market becoming so big, it's getting more difficult to find apps you need. So I am not sure how many A4A readers have bumped into SwiftKey, which costs $2.02.
