Swiftkey sold to Microsoft
, but why?
Having read that the inevitable has happened, a great startup like SwiftKey caching in, I'm disappointed in learning who the buyer is.
Windows Phone is on it's last legs. So why would Microsoft want to spend $250m on technology that would have made more sense being embedded in a native keyboard experience on a mobile OS?
But what would be awesome
is if Microsoft can infuse SwiftKey prediction into their Windows Input API.
Ever tried to type on a standard size keyboard with one hand, and cursing the absence of proper predictive texting? And note I'm saying Predictive Texting. Not Word Completion.
Common Microsoft. Spoil us with something nice on a future Windows 10 update. http://techcrunch.com/2016/02/03/swiftkeys-timely-exit
