Swiftkey Launching With iOS 8

One of the things that hasn't been much discussed from yesterday's Apple event was the confirmation that iOS 8 will be available for existing devices from September 17th, bringing a heap of new functionality for those not planning on upgrading to a new iPhone.

Yesterday was a good day to find out the Swiftkey will be launching its wonderful continuous trace input keyboard on the same day, ending the tyranny of Apple's woeful iOS keyboard for good.

To celebrate Swiftkey released this video, narrated by Stephen Fry, who veers between H2G2 narrator cool and California BS within the space of a minute or so.

Irrespective of the content of the video which only briefly trails the Swiftkey keyboard, the prospect of much improved data input is great news for all iOS users.
