SwiftKey, one of the most popular third-party keyboards on iOS, now supports a whole bunch of new languages and new themes. Its design has also been overhauled to provide a more pleasurable experience, with an updated emoji panel, settings menu, and icon.

SwiftKey made its name on Android before making the leap to iOS, and it is widely regarded as one of the finest third-party keyboards. It is incredibly accurate and intelligent, it boasts useful features like swipe-typing and bilingual typing.

Thanks to its latest update, SwiftKey also supports more languages than any other iOS keyboard. A whopping 68 new ones have just been added, bringing the grand total to 106. The latest additions have been marked with a green dot under the “Languages” settings so they’re easy to find.

This update also adds two new animated themes — Cogs and ZigZag — while the default Nickel Light and Nickel Dark options now sport a cleaner look. Nickel Light is now very similar to the default iOS keyboard for those who prefer the stock look.

Finally, the emoji panel and settings menu have also been tweaked to look better, and there’s a new Home screen icon that better suits iOS 10’s colorful palette. As always, SwiftKey is free to use, and you can download it now from the App Store.
