TouchType's SwiftKey to make mobile users type faster
London: TouchType has introduced a text prediction app called SwiftKey which could help the smartphone users by saving their time. It could make typing on touchscreen mobiles fifty percent faster than before. By using the language technology, the new innovation can predict the word which the user intends to type.
"The incredible technology underpinning our application completely changes the way mobile users interact with their smartphones," said Jon Reynolds, Chief Executive of TouchType. SwiftKey has language models that understand how words are combined within sentences. It adjusts itself by understanding the writing style of an individual and is available in various languages such as English, Spanish, French, German, Dutch and Swedish.
"We've analysed over 50 billion words in nine major languages to build the models that drive our prediction engine," said Ben Medlock, Chief Technical Officer, TouchType.
