SwiftKey gets into the holiday spirit with a free new theme


By now you should have completely abandoned the iOS default keyboard in favor of one of the many fantastic third-party options available -- if you haven't, what is wrong with you? -- and if SwiftKey is your weapon of choice you'll find that an app update today has added a good bit of holiday cheer. Getting into the spirit of the season, a new Christmas-y style keyboard has been added for free, complete with a dusting of snow and candy cane key accents.

SwiftKey snatched headlines back in September when it scored over one million downloads in less than a day following the iOS update that added third party keyboard compatibility. But despite early popularity, the app holds just a 2.5/5 rating on the App Store thanks largely to reviews that demand additional languages beyond the 24 it already supports.
