[Updated] SwiftKey Flow Beta for Phone and Tablet v4.0.0.99

flowlogoIf you’ve been surfing the internet and browsing the social platforms within the last day or so as I have, you probably have already heard that the SwiftKey Flow Beta has been updated again. Well, this morning I woke up to an email from the SwiftKey team, as probably many of you did. Since I didn’t take the time to search out and review the change log yesterday, SwiftKey was kind enough to deliver it to my inbox. So I thought I would share the changes and know issues with our readers. This is my #1 favorite keyboard app. Although, I will admit it’s been a while since I’ve tried anything new, and there could be one out there that might steal me away. Fortunately, SwiftKey has been the perfect addition to my Android devices, and it has stole my heart. Not yet have I felt the need to let my eyes wander.

Changes in this version:

  • Fixed crash on changing keyboards
  • Fixed force close on clicking update language
  • Fixed other crashes
  • Resolved majority of non-English punctuation problems
  • New look installer to match SwiftKey Flow colors and include an introduction to SwiftKey Flow
  • Added Turkish layout
  • Chrome Beta should now behave like Chrome
  • Snap and tap (correction of words) now compatible with Vietnamese
  • Memory usage of settings app reduced
  • Improved handling of non-zero length selection in Chrome and Samsung mail client
  • Fixed jumping cursor in ExDialler and Samsung calculator
  • Microphone key disabled in fields that don’t support voice input
  • Fix for keyboard disappearing when phone build installed on tablet sized devices
  • Disabled predictions in Kingsoft Office and UC browser to make SK usable in them
  • Double space for period turned off by default to prevent accidental period insertion when flowing
  • Replaced ‘learnt’ with ‘learned’ in personalization page (US English)
  • Turned off slide down from candidate bar to close keyboard when flow is on (to be consistent with the description in the Settings menu)

Known Issues:

  • Fixed crash on changing keyboards
  • Crashes when looking at the heatmap if you visit immediately after using the alternative symbols layout
  • Comma key on Arabic keyboard inserts western comma
  • Predictions sometimes blank when switching between languages
  • Flowing words sometimes results in surprising capitalizations
  • “No SD card” ribbon looks bad on low end devices
