Hi everyone,

We’re busy working on some major improvements to SwiftKey that we’re hoping to bring you in time for the festive season. In the mean time today we’ve released a small update that fixes three of the remaining bugs that have been causing trouble for users.

The changes are:

– Period (and some other punctuation) does not cause a force close in various apps including ConnectBot and Terminal Emulator
– With a hard keyboard enabled, predictions do not disappear after pressing send (SMS, Handcent SMS, Google Talk, eBuddy)
– Fixed issue with adding subsequent recipients (Handcent SMS)



UPDATE: This fix has also solved the issue with Adobe AIR apps for Android :-)
