SwiftKey has updated its popular keyboard replacement, enhancing overall performance while adding new features for those running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or higher. A couple of extra themes have also been added and language support has been extended to include Malay and Urdu. Voice typing — introduced with Ice Cream Sandwich and still present in 4.1 Jelly Bean — is now supported as well, improving the app's speech-to-text capabilities. Further additions in the 3.0.1 update include predictions when using the Dolphin HD browser, Google Now, and the stock Jelly Bean browser, although bugs like the inability to use the arrow keys from within the Chrome or Jelly Bean browser are present. If you're new to the app, a phone and tablet version can be purchased from the Google Play store for $3.99 each, or trial versions can be used for one month for free.
