You no longer have to pay $3.99 (approx. Rs 235) for SwiftKey: Android’s best-selling paid app is now free from the Google Play store. The keyboard, arguably one of the best apps of all time, tracks the way you write and automatically makes suggestions on what your next word should be.

On a small keyboard, like that of a smartphone, it speeds up the process of typing. What’s now the fifth version of SwiftKey also includes dozens of themes that users can purchase from within the app. “What we’ve really gone for with this new launch is something that’s much more visually inspiring, much more aesthetically pleasing.

There’s something for everyone in there,”said SwiftKey CMO Joe Braidwood. Themes will be sold for $1 (approx. Rs 60) a piece; packs, which include five themes, will be around $3 (approx. Rs 175); and “Premium” packs will include 10 themes for around $5 (approx. Rs 295).

The update also includes improvements, such as support for 800 emoji and a new prediction feature that will predict which emoji you might want to use as you type. There’s also a dedicated number row, new language support, and an improved prediction engine.
