New SwiftKey Flow Beta Brings The Ability To Flow Nearly Anywhere, New Languages And More
By on January 29th, 2013

The SwiftKey developers released a new beta of SwiftKey Flow today. The new beta update brings with it the ability to swipe or flow text in any text-input field, improved predictions, the usual bug-fixes, and support for new languages and layout tweaks for certain languages.

Below is the pretty massive change-log of the new beta update -:

  • Predictions (and Flow) now on in most places (exceptions: e-mail fields, passwords, anywhere where the app doesn’t behave itself with SK, fields offering their own corrections on Android versions <= 2.2)
  • Easier corrections – just tap on the word and SwiftKey will offer you 3 possibilities
  • New languages: Thai, Vietnamese, Bosnian, Albanian, Javan, Sundanese (plus those added in 3.1)
  • Features from SwiftKey 3.1: Berry theme, split layout in landscape on phones, Armenian, Azerbaijani, Georgian, Hindi, Hinglish, Irish, Macedonian, Spanish (Latin America) and Tagalog
  • New layouts for Hindi and Russian
  • Ukrainian landscape layout fixed
  • Backspacing on to the final word of a multi word prediction (Flow through space) will now give better alternatives
  • Typing style now inferred rather than a setting
  • Long press delete accelerates after the first word

Bugs fixed:

  • Flowing off shift no longer triggers a change in shift state
  • Flow no longer gets stuck when you flow off the bottom of a page
  • Quick period working after single letter words
  • Arrow key repeats
  • Learning when sending messages or tabbing between fields with the enter key fixed
  • Azeri capital i behaviour corrected
  • Estonian will now predict words containing ö
  • Fixed force close on Beta predictions
  • Flow trace no longer left behind after flowing
  • Mounting an SD card will turn predictions off only if SwiftKey language packs are stored on that SD card
  • Keyclick sounds no longer doubled
  • Haptic duration made consistent with flow on and off

With the third beta, SwiftKey Flow is nearly ready for its final release. The developers are just adding the final touches, and fixing minor bugs before, sooner or later, they release it on the Play Store.

The latest beta can be downloaded from SwiftKey Flow’s website.
