Swap your iOS 8 keyboard for these apps

Mobile Apps
Hi, I'm Sarah Mitroff with CNet and today I'm gonna show you some of the new keyboard apps that you can use with iOS 8. First, is SwiftKey, a popular predictive keyboard that's free. As you type, the app suggests words it thinks you want and even predicts what you'll say next. SwiftKey learns from your typing style and gets smarter the more you use it. Next is gesture based keyboard Swype, which costs 99 cents. Swype's main draw is that you can swipe your finger around on the screen to type instead of pecking at the screen. Just move your finger from letter to letter to type a word. Last is Fleksy, which promises super fast typing and it's also 99 cents. You use gestures to speed up your typing. Swipe left to delete a word or swipe right to finish the predicted word shown at the top. You can also adjust the keyboard sizes in the app from small to large. For more tips and tricks about iOS 8, head over to cnet.com/howto. I'm Sarah Mitroff. Thanks for watching. [MUSIC]
