SwiftKey 3 has been updated to version, which adds support for Android 4.1

SwiftKey's latest version of its popular Android predictive keyboard just went out of beta, but the team hasn't stopped there — version adds support for Android 4.1 and by extension the Nexus 7. While both phone and tablet versions of SwiftKey 3 have been updated with various bugfixes, only the phone changelog mentions Jelly Bean, though it should work fine on Google's 7-inch slate.

The real question is whether or not the keyboard improvements in Android 4.1 are already enough for you — as we noted in our Nexus 7 review, Android now predicts your next words right out of the box. Still, SwiftKey certainly has its share of devoted users, and with the Nexus 7 seemingly in high demand we're sure many will be relieved to see the update.
