SwiftKey Cloud Beta Bumped To v4.2.0.115, Brings Support For An Additional GMail Account, Improved Flow Responsiveness, And More

SwiftKey introduced Cloud Beta – a new feature that stores users' data in the cloud and syncs it across devices – a little more than two weeks ago, and so far the company has already pushed one update with a slew of bug fixes. Today marks Cloud Beta's second update in as many weeks, which brings several fixes and enhancements:

Full changelog and known issues for 4.2.0.115

Changes:

  • Now possible to personalize from a second Gmail account before personalizing from an earlier one has finished
  • Fix for crash when starting Gmail personalization
  • Increased responsiveness of Flow predictions (this should reduce the likelihood of the flowed word prediction changing right at the last second)
  • Handcent and Hangout Emoji entry fixed
  • Language models no longer backed up via Android back up if you have SwiftKey Cloud backup and sync enabled (this should save on network and battery usage)
  • Further fixes for crashes in the Cloud preferences
  • Disabled predictions in Pleco where requested
  • Removed SwiftKey account details from the Android Settings, as these were confusing when you had multiple installs side-by-side

Of course, it doesn't fix everything, so there are still a handful of issues that the SK team is currently working on:

Known issues:

  • If you re-add a word that you previously removed from predictions, it will not always get re-added across all your synced devices
  • The showerhead Emoji in GoSMS messes up input
  • Spanish inverted ?

Yelp Update Introduces New Nearby Page, Puts Stronger Emphasis On Local Goings-On, Adds In-App Delivery/Pickup Ordering [Updated]

What do you do when you arrive in a new city and want to know what to do? I'm sure there are plenty of possible answers, but the correct one is to fire up Yelp. In the US, it's just hard to find a competing platform that offers the sheer depth and functionality that the service offers. Yelp displays discounts, allows user to make reservations, has Open Table integration, and - my personal favorite - gives quick access to addresses.

PSA: Google Latitude Shuts Down Today

When Google updated Maps earlier this summer, Latitude was no where to be found. It turned out that the days of Google's location tracking and sharing service were over. We suspect that Latitude is another victim of Google+, which introduced the ability to check into locations and share current locations in new posts not long before Google announced that it was retiring Latitude. Today is the last day to export your data from the service, so hop on it if you want to maintain access to this data.

[New App] Official PGA Championship 2013 App Chips In To The Play Store, No Tablets Allowed

The NFL pre-season started this week. That doesn't have anything to do with the PGA, but I thought it might liven up this story about a golf app.

 unnamed (5) unnamed (2) unnamed (3)

PGA Championship is the official Android app for the eponymous sporting event. It's sponsored by Mercedes-Benz, and by "sponsored," I mean that there appears to be a photo of a car that I can't afford on a lot of the app screens.

Google Is Once Again Cutting Wallet Functionality, Will End Support For Gift And Loyalty Cards On August 21st

Since its inception, things have been tough for Google Wallet. Adoption hasn't been great, many carriers have blocked its use, and the rollout of new features hasn't gone as smoothly as one would hope. In short, it's been a long, hard road for such an initially promising product.

While we've already seen Google cut support for the prepaid Wallet card, the company has now decided to ax NFC redemption of gift and loyalty cards as of August 21st.
