Keyboard replacement app SwiftKey will get a version designed specifically for tablets running the new version of Android, Honeycomb . A complete redesign gives users a way to type with two hands in landscape mode.

SwiftKey is essentially a modern version of predictive text. As you type, the software predicts the most likely word, letter by letter. You can then select that word directly, which should help you save time and prevent horrific spelling mistakes.

We've been using the phone version of SwiftKey for some time, and we're happy with it, although it's not quite as quick or slick as swoopy-slidey alternative Swype . For tablet use, however, SwiftKey's layout and two-handed approach makes much more sense.
