The countdown is on! You’re just one day away from getting your hands on SwiftKey Keyboard for iPhone & iPad! As the launch gets closer, we wanted to share with you some more sneak peeks at what’s coming, and also let you know that SwiftKey for iOS will be free to download.
Here is the first look at the themes that will be available tomorrow. You’ll initially have the choice of two beautiful themes: Nickel Dark and Nickel Light.
Scott Weiss, VP of Design at SwiftKey, explained: “We wanted the Nickel theme family to have a consistent look and feel across both Android and iOS for users on both platforms, but redesigned Nickel specifically for the SwiftKey for iPhone & iPad launch.
“In doing so, we redesigned the icons for Shift, Return, and Backspace. We changed the spacing between the keys to more support the ‘muscle memory’ of iPhone users.
“We even updated the bright blue highlight color to match the SwiftKey brand update – and new logo design – too.”
Scott continued: “We created an entirely new Nickel Light for iPhone & iPad to give users choices at launch. Nickel Light is really fresh and bright.”
“The relationship in color and brightness between the alpha keys and the function keys is very close, and the relationship between the key brightness and the background is close too. Both themes rely on our new hero color for highlights. And we’ve added our new SwiftKey logo to the spacebar, which brightens when tapped, an added detail.”
SwiftKey Keyboard for iPhone & iPad is all about making it easier for you to express what you want to say and tell your story.
You’ll be able to type less, type more accurately and type your way by tapping or swiping with SwiftKey Flow. You’ll also be able to type in up to two languages at once and by signing up to SwiftKey Cloud, teach your SwiftKey to get smarter in seconds.
If you missed our last sneak peek at iOS, you can find it in last week’s blog post.
