Microsoft pulls Windows Phone keyboard for iPhone from App Store

Microsoft will remove Windows Phone keyboard from App Store and instead urge users to download the SwiftKey Keyboard, the Windows 10 marker has revealed.

In a statement Microsoft says that the ‘Word Flow’ experiment is now complete. Microsoft is now encouraging users to download the SwiftKey Keyboard from the App Store. Microsoft has tested out several iOS keyboards and apparently is focusing on SwiftKey after acquiring the app last year.

The keyboard — which also offered a Swype-style keyboard with a conventional layout — was originally launched as a free app last year. It was later updated with new search and prediction features, as well as support for ‘3D Touch’.

SwiftKey Keyboard uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to automatically learn your writing style, including the emoji you love to use, the words that matter to you and how you like to type.

Microsoft’s SwiftKey keyboard now competes against the likes of Google’s Gboard keyboard and various other iOS and Android keyboards.n
