Gradually, Swiftkey continue to rank as the best alternative keyboard for Android and iOS. This Wednesday, the publisher updated its application to add new features with incognito mode, the clipboard or shortcuts.

The first novelty of this version 184.108.40.206 lies in the arrival of the incognito mode of the keyboard. Already available in beta since mid-October, this feature allows, as its name suggests, to pause the recording of terms typed on the keyboard so that they are not suggested a posteriori. Especially useful if you don’t want someone behind your shoulder to see certain words appear for different reasons. The incognito mode activates very simply by tapping on the sandwich menu left suggestions on the keyboard, then selecting the option “Incognito”. Your keyboard will then be displayed in black with a mask and will no longer record the terms typed.
The second new feature included in this new version of Swiftkey is the appearance of a clipboard full. Until now, in Android, it was only possible to save a term or a sentence using the copy or cut options. Now, with the clipboard, your Swiftkey keyboard will record all terms that you have copied or cut. You can then find them all directly in the keyboard via the sandwich menu, then theclipboard tab, on the right side of the screen. Note that the saved terms can be changed or deleted to make room, simply by pressing “Modify clipboard”. It is also from this screen that you can also add shortcuts. So you can save the term “Adressecopain” shortcut to a friend’s mailing address so your keyboard automatically suggests that address when you type “Adressecopain” on Swiftkey. Obviously, this very practical option is customizable. Note however that it only works with one word and therefore without space.
Version 220.127.116.11 of Swiftkey is already available on Android. As always, the app is shipping.
