One of the most popular applications meant to replace the default Android keyboard, SwiftKey, will become even more popular courtesy of the freshly-announced Samsung Galaxy S4.
In an universe where the smartphones and the tablets are using almost exclusively virtual keyboards, SwiftKey has became one of the most popular third-party keyboards available in Google Play Store.
For the time being, SwiftKey is available for purchase in Google Play Store at a price of $3.99, and, in my opinion, is the best replacement for the stock Android virtual keyboard.
“Following our great success with the SwiftKey 4 launch last month, we are excited to confirm that Samsung has chosen SwiftKey’s innovative keyboard technology to be at the heart of its flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S4. This is fantastic progress for our vision of bringing the best touchscreen typing experience to as many people as possible,” said Ben Medock, co-founder of SwiftKey.
Even though the company didn’t had any problems with the SwiftKey adoption rate, Ben Medock, announced with enthusiasm that their keyboard will come pre-loaded on the Samsung Galaxy S4. In case the application developed by Medock and his team needed a trust vote, the fact that Samsung chose it for its new flagship is the best mark it could have received.
This is great news for the old SwiftKey users who will decide that the Samsung Galaxy S4 is the smartphone they need. In case you wanted for a long time to experiment the innovative virtual keyboard of the American company, but you thought that almost four bucks is too much, the implementation of SwiftKey on Samsung Galaxy S4 might be a unique chance for you.
