SwiftKey received an update today that resolves some of the keyboard app’s recent performance issues. According to the software’s changelog, users should experience improved typing, loading times, translations, and several other bug fixes for glitches that caused force closes. In addition to some much needed technical improvements, SwiftKey announced the availability of five new themes: Spotlight Purple, Edge Green, Pulse Yellow, Pulse Pink and Hazy Pink.  If you’re interested in upgrading the look and feel of your keyboard, the outfit is holding a special summer sale that discounts prices on select themes by up to 33 percent.

Lastly, SwiftKey says it will be adding support for additional languages, including: Kyrgyz, Tajik and Turkmen, as well as adding emoji prediction for Arabic, Czech, Greek, Hebrew, Polish and Russian. If your phone’s stock keyboard isn’t cutting it, or you’re just looking for a new freebie app to test out, SwiftKey 5.0.2.4 is now available to download from Google Play.
