SwiftKey recently published a new version of its popular Android keyboard application. The company has made a shift from its previous sales model, which required users to pay for the app ($4) outright. Moving forward, SwiftKey is offering the keyboard for free, but will require in-app purchases to add extra features, such as alternate keyboards, themes, emoji, and an optional number row. Customers who've already paid for the app will receive a 10-pack of themes, which sells for $5, for free. SwiftKey said more than 30 themes are available and it will add more over time. The latest version of the app also adds support for more languages, improves the prediction engine, and makes Word Flow more accurate. SwiftKey is free to download from the Google Play Store.

Swiftkey gets dumber every time

They keep "improving" predictions by assuming the user to be dumber. The result is CORRECTLY SPELLED words constantly being "corrected".

There was once an option in Swiftkey to indicate that you are not a complete fool, and it would only "fix" words which were actually incorrect. They removed this option for unexplained reasons and deny that the newer versions aren't as good.
True but the price is right. I use Swiftkey and like it, and yeah it does some crazy auto correct that drives me nuts now and then, espeically if using something other then english.

Right now I use it on my SGS4 M919 on Cyanogen, Never cared for ...
