SwiftKey- An application enables 50% faster typing in Android handsets

July 18, 2010 | by

A London based mobile technology firm Touch Type has launched a beta version of a text prediction software for Android based smart phones. The developers claim fifty percent faster typing with this application through a powerful text prediction algorithm.

Developers say  “Unlike old text prediction technology, that simply relies on word lists, SwiftKey uses complex language models and understand how words are combined with sentences.”

This new advanced technology adjusts itself by learning the individual writing style and is available in languages such as US/UK English, Spanish, French, German, Dutch and Swedish.

“We’ve analyzed over 50 billion words in nine major languages to build the models that drive our prediction engine,” said Ben Medlock, TouchType’s chief technical officer.
