Photo Themes Come to SwiftKey on Android and iOS

Support for custom photo themes is now available in Swiftkey for Android and iOS. The feature previously debuted in the SwiftKey Beta on Android.

“Truly personalize your keyboard by picking any photo as your background,” the SwiftKey listing in the Google Play Store notes. “Take your design further by resizing the photo, choose background brightness, plus toggle key borders and symbols.”

As I noted with the beta, this feature is easy enough to use: Just navigate to SwiftKey > Themes > Custom, tap “Start” to design your new theme, and choose an image.

On Android, SwiftKey now also supports additional languages such as Griko, Khasi, Marwari, Ossetic (Iron and Digor), Sango, Samogitian, Saramaccan, Tok Pisin, and Võro.

And on iOS, the new releases fixes a few bugs: It will no longer repeatedly autocorrect a previously learned word or insert extra spaces after corrections.

SwiftKey has also announced a partnership with National Geographic that brings 12 great photos to the keyboard app. You can find them here.
