7 Swiftkey-Android utility apps

One of the most popular keyboard for Android and iOS has added support for Sindhi and Pashto in its latest update. This adds to the current support for Urdu keyboard in SwiftKey.

SwiftKey is known for its simplistic and modern design and inclusion of neural net to predict what the user is going to type next. It learns about the behavior of user and generates accurate suggestions keeping in view the context of the sentence. This greatly reduces the time taken to type common phrases and replying to simple questions. This neural net prediction algorithm is still in beta phase and is not available for a lot of languages.


SwiftKey is now expanding its support to Sindhi and Pashto languages too. These languages won’t support the neural net right away, but users will still be able to make use of SwiftKey’s advance prediction algorithms. Pakistani users have the choice of typing in Urdu, Pashto or Sindhi language without switching to other keyboards.

The latest update to the SwiftKey also brings support for using up to 5 languages simultaneously. You can switch between the languages by swiping left or right on the space bar.

If you want to try out the new languages and features of SwiftKey, you can go ahead and download it for Android and iOS right now.
