SwiftKey Keyboard: Top Alternative for Your Default Android Keyboard

Are you feeling bored with your default Android keyboard? Want a keyboard with extreme customisation and magnificent predictions? Thanks to SwiftKey-the best alternative for your default Android keyboard (I can't use the word alternative as SwiftKey stands many miles away from the standard keyboard). 
SwiftKey Keyboard's different styles

Here are some standalone features that SwiftKey offers:

Superb Prediction Engine:

The thing I liked the most about SwiftKey is its prediction. It will learn from you and it becomes smarter over time. Perhaps you could add your Gmail, Google +, Facebook, Twitter and Evernote accounts to SK so that it can learn your language skills and predict the words more accurately.

Wide Variety of Themes:

Do you know why I love Android? Of course, the reason is extreme customisation. SK has many themes, both free and premium. Also the app provides three layouts for the keyboard- full, thumb and compact.

Multi Lingual:

SK offers over 60 languages, including English, French, Spanish, Italian, Hindi, Arab etc. That's good for someone who knows and uses many languages. You can use up to three languages on your keyboard at a time.

SwiftKey Flow: 
Type with gestures on your Android Keyboard-SwiftKey Flow

This thing helps you to type with gesture, instead of tapping the keys. Just scribble the word over the keyboard and type easily. It's a thing worth a try.

Cloud Based Sync:

You can sync your personalisation data over the cloud and can be used in multiple devices. SwiftKey also download the trending phrases from the Web and type those words with ease.

Final Words:

SwiftKey is an award-winning free Android app that makes you in love with the virtual keyboard interface. The only down side I see right now is that it's prediction accuracy decreases on lengthy text. That may be fixed over time or as SwiftKey said; it might become smarter as time evolves.

So, which is your favorite Android keyboard? Is it SwiftKey or any other one? Please point out your valuable reply in the comment section.

Quick Tips to Charge Your Smart Phone

Smart phones are my best friends. They help me in completing my jobs. But in many instances my face has become red when I consider their rate if charging the battery. I was thinking about ways to quickly charge my phone, and like most of you I also googled it.

This post is a mixture of resources that I find across the web and my own experiments. So here are the tips to quickly charge your smart phone:
  • Switch Off Your Phone: You may tell me that you didn't buy a phone to just see it. Please don't think that I'm crazy! Switching off your phone will boost the charging rate as its current duty is to fill its battery. You could also think about airplane mode. It will turn off network, wifi, GPS and sort of things like that.
  • Connect Your Charger to the Power Socket: Charging from the power socket is faster than using USB. USB cables main function is to transfer data between your computer and mobile. Charging is its secondary function. So always try to charge from the power socket.
  • Use the Right Charger: By using the term 'right charger' I mean use the charger that was provided when you bought your smart phone. It's because of the fact that all phones have different charging rate and the adapter that come with your device is the most suitable one.
  • Remove Your Phone's Case or Cover: Though this is an optional one I strongly recommend it. Your device is more hotter when it has a case than when it doesn't have. Providing a cool interface will help in boosting your device's charging rate (Lol, don't put your phone in a refrigerator).
  • Use a Power Bank: Power bank is a device that helps you charge in situations when you don't have access to direct power supply. First, you have to charge the power bank. When you are out of power connect your phone to the power bank. As these devices are specialized in charging, it will charge your phone quickly.
Following these steps will help you to charge your phone 10-30% faster. Oh! Forget to tell you something! If you charge your smart phone in Airplane mode, please don't work with the phone. If you do so, your device will be charged slowly as your phone's screen is a main killer of the battery.
If you have any tips to charge the smart phone quickly do comment here. Also share this post with your friends or colleagues who use their smart phones badly.
