SAN FRANCISCO, CA – July 23, 2013 — / — SwiftKey, the award-winning Android keyboard app, unveiled a suite of new services called SwiftKey Cloud as part of its latest beta release on Tuesday. SwiftKey Cloud gives users of the popular app the ability to seamlessly backup and sync their personal writing style across multiple devices, creating a cloud-based hub for each user’s personal language profile.

Using powerful language analysis of major news stories and popular events, SwiftKey Cloud also updates the keyboard’s predictions with daily Trending Phrases, letting users discuss the day’s current affairs with ease. What’s more, SwiftKey Cloud makes it easier to personalize the keyboard based on online message archives, with an enhanced management console and new support for Yahoo! Mail.

Enabling SwiftKey Cloud brings these three essential features:

Backup & Sync – The words and phrases that matter to you, backed up securely and seamlessly synced across all of your devices. If your mobile or tablet is upgraded, lost or stolen,  your personal profile is kept safe in the cloud, giving you the personalized SwiftKey experience within seconds of installing the app on a new device.

Trending Phrases – SwiftKey’s technology analyzes Twitter and other news sources to sift out the most relevant daily discussions and localized trending topics. Using advanced language technology, SwiftKey captures the day’s most important phrases from the worlds of news, showbiz and sport to help you type about what’s on the agenda that day. Launch support for users of US and UK English, and 11 other languages with more coming soon.

Enhanced Personalization – SwiftKey Cloud beta makes it easier than ever to ensure your next-word predictions and auto-corrections are tailored to you. Full integration with the Gmail and Facebook APIs allows for ‘one-click’ personalization for accounts registered on your device, and Yahoo! Mail has been added alongside Twitter, RSS and SMS personalization options.

“SwiftKey Cloud represents the next step in personalized technology,” SwiftKey co-founder and CTO Ben Medlock said.  ”The words and phrases that matter to you are intelligently updated across all your devices and kept safe in case you upgrade your phone or it is lost or stolen. Every day, SwiftKey will be in tune with your world, ready to offer predictions for the news events, sporting fixtures or celebrities that are getting people talking where you are. What’s more, through enhanced personalization, SwiftKey Cloud gets to know you better than ever before — and you can enable this all with a single tap,” Medlock continued.

SwiftKey 4.2 beta also introduces a range of other features including a clearer settings menu and enhanced configuration options for devices with a built-in or Bluetooth-attached physical keyboard.

About SwiftKey (
SwiftKey was founded by Jon Reynolds, CEO, and Dr Ben Medlock, CTO, in August 2008. With a growing team of over 100 people, the company is based in Southwark, London, UK and has offices in San Francisco and Seoul.

The company’s technology makes typing much easier on touchscreen devices, powering the text entry experience with intelligent natural language technology. This is seen in the flagship SwiftKey keyboard app on Android, which first launched in July 2010. The app understands how words work together to give much more accurate corrections and predictions than other keyboards. It can even predict a user’s next word as they type and also powerfully learns over time to make typing easier and even more accurate.

SwiftKey was recently named one of the Top 10 Most Innovative Mobile Companies in the world by Fast Company and last year, it won a People’s Voice Webby Award for Mobile Experimentation and Innovation and Most Innovative App at the GSMA awards at Mobile World Congress. The company’s  bespoke product for clinicians using touchscreens, SwiftKey Healthcare, was highly commended for “Best Mobile Health Product or Service” at the 2013 GSMA awards and last year won the Best Enterprise Appster at the Apps World conference.
