Swiftkey for iOS update shows just how awful you type with Tap Map

In the latest update, Swiftkey has introduced some new features to the popular custom keyboard for iOS, such as Tap Map, usage stats, and additional language support. Swiftkey is all about improving your typing accuracy, and the new tools give users visibility of their typing habits. Tap Map will show users where they are pressing on the screen, and how Swiftkey uses artificial intelligence (AI) to accommodate their habits. Behind the scenes the keyboard will adapt based on the information collected to give the most accurate typing experience possible.

In addition to Tap Map, Swiftkey is going to begin showing usage stats on iOS. Android users have previously been able to see how many taps they have saved, or how many words were corrected, and this is now making the move over to iOS as well.

Typing stats give you facts and figures about how much you've typed, how far you've flowed, and how many words have been corrected and predicted so far using SwiftKey. The info in both your Tap Map and your typing stats is based on data that the app has been recording since you downloaded SwiftKey - check out how far you've come!

Lastly, the update brings support for Arabic, Hebrew and Farsi, which is something many users have been requesting. Swiftkey will be dishing out prizes to the best and worst Tap Maps, to participate Tweet yours with the hashtag '#tapmap'. The update is available now on the App Store, and if you are not already using it be sure to give it a shot at the link below.
