Sure, your favorite weather app might look good, but can you really tell how accurate it is? Instead of relying on just one weather source to provide you with an overview of the week’s weather, Climendo wants to do things a little differently.
There have been plenty of requests for BBM to come to Windows Phone after it arrived on iOS and Android some time ago, lord knows why though because I am still struggling to find people who use BBM these days. They must be out there somewhere though because the request for BBM has been so high.

On the back of the news that third party keyboards are coming to iOS 8, Swiftkey has already thrown it’s hat into the ring and confirmed it will be joining the party. And if it is one thing I miss from Android, it is Swiftkey.
Here is what they had to say following the WWDC keynote;
“We’re delighted Apple has decided to embrace the importance of opening its platform to third party keyboards. For more than four years, SwiftKey has pioneered faster, easier typing on touchscreens, leading the industry with next-word prediction and smarter autocorrection. Our technology features on more than 200 million devices to date and we can’t wait to reach more. We first brought a taste of our technology to iOS in January this year with the launch of the free note-taking app SwiftKey Note. Are we going to build SwiftKey Keyboard for iOS 8? Of course we are. We’ve already started.”
So with Swiftkey already in the works for iOS this will be fantastic news for Apple users. Swiftkey is one of the best and most popular keyboard apps on Android, of course we are going to have to wait until the iOS 8 release this fall.
But I can put up with the stock keyboard until then for sure.
