SwiftKey Note app brings predictive typing to iOS as an Evernote client
For those who have been working with Android-powered devices, SwiftKey, predictive-software keyboard, is a well-known add-on app. While traditionally Google's Android platform has allowed app developers to create their own keyboards, its rival, Apple has refrained from allowing such a practice on iOS. Now, SwiftKey has launched a free for download note-taking app for iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch devices running iOS 6 and above, called SwiftKey Note.

Built in collaboration with Evernote, the new app is called SwiftKey Note, and is, which is already on the Apple iTunes store. The app combines predictive text typing with note-taking. As before, it offers next word predictions based on the manner in which the user uses individual words, however as this is an iOS app, this is learned via notes sampled from the user's Evernote account - as you take more notes, the more accurate the text prediction should become.

SwiftKey Note offers support in up to three languages at one time, and users can also create Evernote notebooks and tags using it. Easy to access quick formatting options are also available. Formatting is not currently supported on iOS6.

SwiftKey Note is not an app that will replace Evernote, but rather acts like a third-party client for the note-taking service, with a unique input interface. There are drawbacks though. The ability to insert photos, audio recordings and other media, like in the actual Evernote app, is missing, so is the ability to view Evernote content that has not been tagged by SwiftKey. This makes the app a very barebones one.

The 'Flow' feature, the glide-and-tap-typing method which is used by almost half of the users of SwiftKey keyboard on the Android platform, is not available for the iOS app. SwiftKey's chief marketing officer, Joe Braidwood said, "We want to stay pretty consistent with the experience of iOS." He also added that they are collecting information about whether or not users want the Flow feature on the SwiftKey Note. Braidwood has said that the app has been designed around Evernote's API to create notes but not replace it.

Incidentally, the Evernote has also updated its iOS app, detailing a new iOS 7 style interface and a customisable home screen. It also includes new colour themes, sections, Sync status, better business card scanning and more
