There’s big money in virtual keyboards these days.
SwiftKey is already the best-selling Android keyboard and the fifth-ranked Google Play app by revenue. Now the “artificially intelligent keyboard” has raised $17.5 million to get even smarter, and to grow even bigger.
Apparently, there’s still a lot to learn.
Intelligent keyboards for Android smartphones are hot, hot, hot. Just a day after Swype announced the newest version of its smart keyboard, competitor SwiftKey is unveiling Swiftkey 3, the “artificially intelligent keyboard” that “reads your mind to make typing faster.”
