Why I Only Recommend The Nexus Experience

When I first got an Android phone in 2010 I decided to pick up a HTC Hero, and it sucked. The software, the whole experience put me off Android at the time. It was laggy, it crashed frequently enough and not long after I was pining for my iPhone back again, not long after I bought the HTC Hero there was no more software support for it. This is the now age old problem of Android fragmentation, something Google are trying to eradicate however it is still a common problem for most users. Continue reading

Swiftkey Coming To iOS 8

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.
