After going to a freemium model almost a year ago, SwiftKey has been layering on new features like there's no tomorrow. In today's update (previously in beta, so it might sound familiar to some of you) there's a new theme, refinements of various features, and even some new languages. This version is already rolling out, but if you don't see it yet, we've got the APK below.


Probably the most noticeable change is the new default theme, called Carbon. It's supposed to be a mix of SwiftKey's brand image and material design. It actually looks a lot like the Google Keyboard. The recently added SwiftKey Hub now has a lighter theme that's more in keeping with Android 5.0's aesthetic. Just in case you missed it before. the Hub is a way to quickly access your installed themes, the SwiftKey store (gotta make that money, yo), and settings.


Some international users will be happy to hear that the updated SwiftKey supports layouts for Hindi, Tamil, Gujarati, Marathi, and Nepali languages. Lastly, the Dashlane password management integration that was first added in the last major update is being enhanced with the ability for the keyboard to intelligently predict which logins you'll need.
