January 30, 2014

App introduces SwiftKey’s magical word prediction technology to iOS alongside integration with the Evernote Platform

San Francisco, CA, January 30, 2014 – Award-winning personalized technology company SwiftKey® today launched SwiftKey Note, its debut product on the App Store℠. The fastest way to take notes on iPhone®, iPad® or iPod touch®, the free app uses artificial intelligence to suggest words in real-time that are tailored to each user’s writing style.

The app features a tight integration with Evernote®, giving users the option to personalize SwiftKey’s word suggestions based on their Evernote archive and providing seamless sync of new SwiftKey Notes onto the platform.

SwiftKey’s hallmark prediction bar above the keyboard makes typing faster and easier. It offers highly personalized auto-corrections and three next-word predictions as a user writes. The app also gets smarter the more it’s used as it adapts to each individual’s writing style.

Joe Braidwood, SwiftKey’s Chief Marketing Officer, said: “With SwiftKey Note, we’ve worked closely with Apple and Evernote to bring all of the power of SwiftKey’s mind-reading prediction technology to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users everywhere. Whether it’s in the meeting room, lecture hall or grocery store, with SwiftKey Note you can now take much faster notes, getting a more human typing experience from your devices and remembering more of the things that matter in your life.”

Chris Traganos, Head of Developer Outreach at Evernote, said: “Pairing SwiftKey’s predictive keyboard with the Evernote Platform is a transformative experience for creating quick notes. We’re excited to have SwiftKey Note’s two-way sync with Evernote and to build this relationship.”

Today’s launch marks the first time SwiftKey’s word prediction technology has been made available on the App Store.
