As a little bit of extra holiday fun, you can now dress up your SwiftKey keyboard up for the holidays! SwiftKey has updated their custom keyboard for iOS 8 to include a holiday theme.
The new keyboard has a definite holiday feeling to it, with presents, candy canes, and and a dusting of snow decorating the keys. As well as the new theme, the SwiftKey update brings a new searchable help section in the app, and the ability to import keyboard shortcuts from Apple settings.
What’s New in Version 1.1
Free Holiday Theme
– Get into the holiday spirit with a festive keyboard makeover
– Easier help with all you need to know about SwiftKey in a searchable help section in the app
– Imports keyboard shortcuts from Apple settings e.g. type “myemail” and it’s expanded to “firstname.lastname@example.org”
– Support for tagging people in Google+ and Facebook added
The free SwiftKey keyboard made news last fall when it tallied over one million downloads in less than one day of availability after Apple began allowing third-party keyboard use in iOS 8.
The SwiftKey keyboard is available FREE for your iPhone or iPad running iOS 8 in the App Store [DIRECT LINK]
