SwiftKey 4.3 is live in the Play Store, 50% off in some markets

swiftkey beta (4)
SwiftKey, the popular keyboard replacement app, is now updating to version 4.3, which brings new keyboard layouts that can be undocked, moved, and resized.

The three keyboard layouts in SwiftKey 4.3 are the classic Full mode, the Thumb mode, which separates the keys into two groups for easy thumb typing on large smartphones and tablets, and the Compact mode, a narrow format that moves all the keys closer to a side of the device, for easier one hand typing. The three layouts can be resized, undocked, and even moved around the screen, a feature that should be especially handy for entering text on tablets and other large devices.

SwiftKey 4.3 is a free update for users of either of the previous versions, but if you want to purchase it, now may be a good time to do it.
