SwiftKey Tablet for Honeycomb Has a Two-Keyboard Approach

 |  |  |  |  |  |  February 6, 2011


Android smartphones have long benefited from the Swiftkey keyboard app. Now that same convenience will be coming to Honeycomb tablets, and it really looks promising.

SwiftKey’s solution is simple yet effective, and actually lets you hold and type on a tablet at the same time. Let’s hope it finds its way into more tablets. Check out SwiftKey’s blog for more info.
