Introducing SwiftKey Tilt


SwiftKey just unveiled their latest feature for their award-winning app called SwiftKey Tilt. This is truly the next big thing with mobile typing. SwiftKey wanted users to be more active when typing, so they created a revolutionary new input method where you can use more of your body to type.. It uses a pinball that rolls around the keyboard as you type as if you were Flowing with your fingers. You don't even need to touch the screen anymore, and it works very well. The predictions are stellar and the speed hasn't changed at all. The only hard part is to figure out are the pinball physics, it will take some time to get it right.



To enable this feature, use SwiftKey and type "tilt", long-press the prediction and tap on SwiftKey Tilt and there you have it, a pinball on your keyboard. Now you can start using SwiftKey Tilt. I like how they already hid this feature beforehand so you don't even need to update. The only downside is that in order to enable SwiftKey Tilt, you have to type "tilt" every time, which I hope they remove with a future update.


And now there's a Harlem Shake video.



Happy April Fools' from SwiftKey!
