Swiftkey Update to version 4.1.1 comes quickly

Swiftkey_MAIN

Shortly after releasing version 4.1 of its keyboard that brought new themes and improvements, the update to 4.1.1.146 which hit my device today brings a few important fixes. First up, those of you with Samsung devices using the stock email app will now have proper text input, without a cursor that jumps around in the paragraph you’re typing. Also an important fix, the keyboard will no longer have an unusable “execute” button while typing in the new Google Hangouts app. Additionally, two crashes related to personalization features and using the “Pitch” theme on older Android 2.1 devices have been fixed.

Although there is still no fix for for having to set Swiftkey as the default keyboard each time the phone restarts on the GS3?
Charlie Edmunds said in reply:

Sorry about this, we know this is extremely frustrating. Google Play installs paid apps in a particular location on the phone, and when the phone is starting up (and looking for keyboards) that location is not yet available, so it reverts to the default. There’s a full explanation of the default-on-reboot issue here. http://support.swiftkey.net/knowledgebase/articles/122554-default-keyboard-reset-on-every-restart-or-reboot-

There’s no doubt many of you out there are using SwiftKey daily on your devices, so head to the Play Store and grab your update for these important fixes.
