Well what do we have here? A new image has been posted by @evleaks with the caption "SwiftKey Note for iOS" that depicts an iPhone 5s running what appears to be a note-taking app. The title of the note in the app is "SwiftKey Note" and the body reads "A super-fast typing." At the bottom of the screen is what appears to be the standard iOS 7 keyboard, but above that is a list of three word predictions, including "experience."
Judging by the information that we can glean from this leaked image, it appears that SwiftKey is prepping a note-taking app for iOS with its predictive software built in. SwiftKey is one of the most popular third-party keyboard apps on Android and is known for its excellent word predictions, so the promise of an iOS app with those predictions baked in is exciting. Of course, iOS doesn't allow users to use third-party keyboards across the OS like Android does, and so SwiftKey's predictive software could only be used inside of this SwiftKey Note app. That's kind of a bummer, but hey, it's better than nothing.
Would you use a third-party keyboard like SwiftKey on iOS if you had the option? Or are you happy with Apple's iOS 7 keyboard?
