SwiftKey Goes Paid-for

After a successful two-month beta period that saw the app downloaded over 250,000 times on Android Market, the predictive typing app SwiftKey is launching today as a paid app on Android Market in the US.

The paid version offers the ability to offer predictions in two languages simultaneously. Developer TouchType says it is also the fastest app it has ever built, and has a new keyboard layout with a numpad and arrow keys to make typing on a touchscreen even faster.

To celebrate, the firm is offering the app for $0.99 for the next week on the Android Market, a discount of three dollars. In the coming weeks, it willl be launching on other global Android app stores too.

There’s a video demo of SwiftKey here.
