How do I quickly capitalize using Clarity Keyboard for Android?

4th September 2015

Hi everyone,

Welcome to this week’s installment of SwiftKey Keyboard Tips & Tricks! We normally cover the iOS and Android versions of SwiftKey, but today we’re switching things up a bit.

Today’s post is about Clarity Keyboard for Android, our first release in SwiftKey Greenhouse. If you’re not familiar, Clarity is an experimental keyboard offering a simple way to type, helping you to focus on what you’re writing and nothing else.

While the keyboard is quite minimal, it still has a number of cool features. Today, we’re highlighting a feature that lets you do a quick gesture to insert a capital letter.

To get started:

  • Download Clarity if you don’t yet have it
  • Hold & press on the shift key (note how this turns on caps lock)
  • Drag your finger to the letter you wish to select
  • Release
  • Clarity Keyboard SwiftKey Android

clarityAnd just like that, you can insert a capital letter. You can easily and quickly do this and alternate between lowercase and capital if you want to WrItE LiKe tHiS (who doesn’t?).

It’s as simple as that.
