SwiftKey, arguably one of the most popular third-party keyboard applications on Android, received a crucial software update with a myriad of bug fixes.

The SwiftKey update change log is rather lengthy. There's improved typing performance, transitions, keyboard loading time, and Flow performance, which will help when you're doing one-handed gesture typing. The app also fixes a bug that made the bottom row of the keyboard disappear on some devices, as well as a bug that made the background disappear in some themes and another that caused some to constantly crash.

That's a pretty lengthy list of bugs, but SwiftKey promises to make performance its "#1 priority...we continue to work on lag issues affecting some users on some devices to make sure the keyboard is as snappy as you need."

All those bug fixes are a bit of a bummer, but there's some good news, too. This latest update also brings forth a few new themes for you to choose from, as well as a summer sale on several existing themes. Head to the SwiftKey store to check out the new themes and what's on sale, or head to the Google Play Store for the app update.
