SwiftKey 5 goes free, adds number row, emoji and paid themes

SwiftKey 5 is free

One of Android's top paid apps is now free. SwiftKey, long one of our favorite third-party keyboards, has dropped its $3.99 price for its fifth iteration — available today — and is throwing in a bunch of new features as well.

And for those who bought the full version of SwiftKey in the past, well, there's a little extra something in there for you as well.

So here's the deal: First and foremost, nobody's paying for SwiftKey going forward. You get that great prediction engine and layout for absolutely nothing. And with it you'll still be able to take advantage of SwiftKey Cloud, which syncs your predictions across any and all devices you hook into it. Plus, you can still have SwiftKey learn from your Google, Facebook or Twitter entries.
