SwiftKey update simplifies setup process, adds festive keyboard theme


SwiftKey's spreading a little Christmas cheer today, having updated its popular keyboard app for Android with a festive "Ice" theme. In addition to looking generally chilly, the theme frames letter pop-ups in snowflakes and generates snowy residue from Flow strokes. There is a little more to version 4.4, though; namely, a new installer that claims to simplify the setup process, which any current SwiftKey users may remember as being more complicated than perhaps it needed to be. The new version doesn't include the richer emoji suite or number row -- those features are still in beta -- but you do get a bunch of bug fixes as consolation. The update is live in the Play store and is awaiting Bezos' approval for Amazon's Appstore, although he might be preoccupied with all the pre-Christmas orders steadily making him rich(er).
