SwiftKey has launched its keyboard for iOS in the form of SwiftKey Note app in collaboration with Evernote and Apple.
SwiftKey Note is a simple note-taking app with Evernote integration, which allows iPhone and iPad users to use the incredibly accurate predictive keyboard from SwiftKey. One thing, which might not work for the users is that the keyboard’s functions are limited to the app alone. Users won’t be able to use SwiftKey keyboard’s features while typing text messages or emails like they can currently do with Android.
The SwiftKey Note app matches with the simplistic and attractive iOS 7 design elements. SwiftKey’s keyboard has similar looks to match iOS 7’s new flat UI keyboard. The app not only offers rapid-fire suggestions but also corrects user’s typing mistakes.
Joe Braidwood, SwiftKey Chief Marketing Officer, in a statement said: “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, iPad, and iPod touch users everywhere.”
The new app, which can also be used as a basic note-taking app without using the Evernote integration, offers options for categorising user’s posts with tags, sending notes via email and allows saving notes in notebooks.
Chris Traganos, Evernote’s head of developer outreach, said, “Pairing SwiftKey’s predictive keyboard with Evernote Platform is a transformative experience for creating quick notes.”
“We’re excited to have SwiftKey Note’s two-way sync with Evernote and to build this relationship.”
This partial integration of SwiftKey keyboard with an app hints at a probable and deeper integration of SwiftKey into other iOS apps or the core itself. The app can be downloaded from Apple App Store.
