Joe Braidwood, Touchtype’s Chief Marketing Officer, announced a new beta of the excellent Android replacement keyboard Swiftkey. Normally, we wouldn’t be talking about a beta release but today, Swiftkey is opening its VIP Group to the public until midnight Pacific time.

You can join at  http://www.swiftkey.net/vip using code #swiftkeyFRIDAY. But this will only work today. Feel free to click below and post this on social networks.

The 2.0.2.8 Beta adds several new and improved features. We did a full review on Swifkey last summer (See our full review here); the program has been consistently improved and refined since then.


Changelog for Swiftkey 2.0.2.8
-Redesigned installer process
– Redesigned settings menu
– SwiftKey shortcut launcher on keyboard
– New typing styles: Precise (identical to Classic), Rapid (similar to Rapidfire)
(Note: you can reproduce “Manual” with “Space will always insert a space” in advanced)
– Text handling improvements (fixed doubledouble bug, etc. + general stability improvements)
– Improved dark theme

I urge you to join the Swiftkey group using the code I provided to take advantage of this limited offer to take advantage of the beta.
