Swiftkey – iOS keyboard with swype
It is quite an attractive keyboard, but with no support of the Russian language, at least at the moment. Another minus – it provides only two covers, dark and light. No additional characters are available.
The main advantage is of course SwiftKey Flow, or swype. We could make sure that the word spelling even with several mistakes is performed correctly in most cases. Certainly, if the word is more or less widespread and included in the dictionary. Otherwise, it can be added by the user to avoid the problems with its spelling in the future.
Besides, the keyboard offers using "cloud" services SwiftKey Cloud for storing the settings and the user’s dictionary. It is convenient when using multiple devices, including various "axes".
After ai.type Keyboard’s possibilities, we’d like to try out something new, let’s see if Go Keyboard can offer it.
Let’s start with the covers. There are three of them, and the best one’s interface seems to have been copied from the native iOS. There is also a option of using your images as a background.
Period, comma and some additional characters are available. But language switching is possible only through the "tap" on a spacebar. Those who are used to a faster "Globe" may dislike this option. And swype is also not available here.
The range of settings is very limited: language selection, word-prediction, auto-capitalization, keypress sound. And the covers, of course. Overall, so far it’s difficult to name the reason why GO Keyboard could be distinguished among the others.
Touchpal – one of the best keyboards for iOS
The keyboard TouchPal, unlike the previous app, is supplied much better. It provides swype, additional characters, and various other options.
For example, here we can find the largest number of covers that we have seen. However, if you look closely, there is only one cover, and everything else - just the color options.
Let’s make a cover with the camera’s image and adjust the transparency of the buttons.
There are additional characters, plenty of "smiles". Language switching is performed by slipping on a spacebar or by a long "tap" on the "Globe. Basically, it is convenient.
It has few languages, but Russian is already available. The list of settings is short as usual.
