Today we’re unveiling something completely fresh and new from SwiftKey as an experiment in innovation – a new beta app and a new home for seeding ideas.
Clarity Keyboard Beta is an experimental keyboard offering a simple way to type, helping you to focus on what you’re writing and nothing else. It’s available to download and test right now.
It is the first of our SwiftKey Greenhouse releases – a new hub for our experimental software.
Features of Clarity Keyboard Beta:
- Multi-word autocorrect – checks the last few words you’ve typed and retrospectively corrects them
- No more ‘damn-you-autocorrect’ – quickly undo any autocorrections and restore exactly what you typed by tapping backspace
- Always learning – automatically learns your slang, nicknames and phrases
We’re releasing Clarity Keyboard as an experiment to gather feedback and to test some ideas we have about the different ways people type. We believe in fresh thinking, building new things and asking our users to test them. Like it? Have feedback for us? We want to hear from you – use the feedback button in the app to get in touch with us.
What is SwiftKey Greenhouse?
SwiftKey Greenhouse is a place where we can seed ideas and help them grow.
We want to continue pushing the boundaries of our industry. Greenhouse gives us a place for our users to try new things out. New things that we’re excited about, but that aren’t quite ready for everyone yet. What these experiments grow into we’re not so sure yet, but we want to make sure our best ideas aren’t kept in the dark and are given the space to grow.
SwiftKey’s core value is innovation – we like to constantly challenge our assumptions. Some of these ideas remain internal, some get absorbed into our core products and others, like Clarity Keyboard Beta, get released as their own experiments.
Clarity Keyboard Beta is available to test now. Just go to http://swiftkey.com/en/greenhouse to try it out. We would love to know what you think.
