SwiftKey on Thursday announced its first ever iOS application, SwiftKey Note, which is available to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users as a free download from the App Store. The application,already seen in a couple of leaks in previous days, aims to bring users “faster note taking to iPhone and iPad,” although it won’t replace the default keyboard in iOS, something Apple still doesn’t allow app developers to do.
SwiftKey Note will include features that helped it become one of the most popular keyboard apps in the Google Play Store including personalized auto-correction and three next-word suggestions that appear in a row on top of the keyboard, continuously changing as the user advances with the text. The app is supposed to become better in time and offer more tailored word predictions, as it learns from the user’s past typing experience.
Compatible with devices running iOS 6 or later, the application will come with Evernote integration and sync support, meaning that it’ll be able to learn from related notes stored in your Evernote account, as well as sync newly created notes across devices.
“With SwiftKey Note, we’ve worked closely with Apple and Evernote to bring all of the power of SwiftKey’s mind-reading prediction technology to iPhone and iPad users everywhere,” SwiftKey Chief Marketing Officer Joe Braidwood said. “Whether it’s in the meeting room, lecture hall or grocery store, with SwiftKey Note you can now take much faster notes, getting a more human typing experience from your devices and remembering more of the things that matter in your life.”
In addition to improving the efficiency of your typing, the Swiftkey Note app also comes with easy formatting features allowing users to further edit their notes – as seen in the video above – and support for multiple languages including English (U.S. and U.K.,) French, (FR and CA,), German, Italian and Spanish (ES and U.S.).
Inside the app, users will be able to track their stats including efficiency, keystrokes saved, typos corrected, words predicted and words completed, and organize notes with the help of notebooks, labels and tags.
As for the SwiftKey Keyboard app, it’s already a hit in the Play Store, having been downloaded up to 5 million times by Android users, and enjoying an average rating of 4.7 stars out of 5 from more than 350,000 reviews. But iOS users will still have to wait for a similar app to launch on iOS.
