Exciting news from Day 1 at MWC – SwiftKey has signed a deal with Nokia to make our market-leading app available to users of their new app store, Nokia Store, and accompanying phone Nokia X, throughout 2014.
It will include our hugely popular service SwiftKey Cloud, which gives users the ability to seamlessly backup and sync their personal writing style across multiple devices and offers predictions for current trending phrases and words. It will also include three SwiftKey app themes (Cobalt as the default theme, Holo and Light).
The phones will target emerging markets in particular which means that we will be able to bring our input technology and extensive language coverage to as wide an audience as possible.
Our CEO and co-founder Jon Reynolds says, “We are delighted to be collaborating with Nokia on their debut Nokia Store, a company renowned for its significant user base and impressive reach in emerging markets. This collaboration with Nokia demonstrates our ongoing commitment to bring SwiftKey’s personalized, adaptive technology to as many users as possible.”
SwiftKey will be available on Nokia Store in the following countries: Vietnam, Indonesia, China, Thailand, Russia, Ukraine, India, Pakistan, Nigeria, Egypt, South Africa, Kenya, UAE, Kuwait, Philippines, Malaysia, Kazakhstan, Oman, Qatar, Poland and Turkey.
