SwiftKey Introduces ‘Cloud’, Keeps Your Predictions Backed Up And Synced, and More

SW_Beta

SwiftKey as with any other keyboard app has to have a decent layout and prediction ability, most users spend time customizing their keyboard experience, by adding new words and phrases to a dictionary,whether it be a personal one or just the one that comes with the keyboard.

When it comes to using another device whether new or just a second one this can bring  problems. the predictions you have on first device are not carried over to other devices, and so you have to start all over again. SwiftKey however have been working on a way to help users carry your user-defined dictionary and sync it across all your devices. This is where SwiftKey Cloud Beta comes in.

Although the existing SwiftKey pulls info from your Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, RSS, and SMS to custom-tailor suggestions, Cloud Beta can also gather information from your Yahoo! Mail. This is, of course, completely optional, you must give it permission, and it is a one-time-only data sync. You can, however, have it re-“learn” by tapping the option (in settings > SwiftKey Cloud > Personalization) again.


Security is of course, big and at the forefront of Swiftkey’s minds and, they have confirmed two very important things: Passwords will never be stored within Cloud Beta, and Your personal information is stored securely on Amazon S3 in the UK. Your information is kept private, secure, and is available only to you. That’s important.

SwiftKey Cloud Beta is available as a free download during its testing phase from SK’s Beta site, and will come as a free upgrade to existing users once it exits beta.
