New App for Android Root Users: SwiftText

Hi GiffGaff peeps, and especially those who have a Rooted Android handset, today I present to you a way to type even quicker!

 

It's called SwiftText (after SwiftKey, becuase I find it really fast) but instead of pressing keys, you press a button and a preset phrase is typed out infront of you, for you. So, you could add your email address and then never have to type it again.

 

Just hold the search button on your device to call SwiftText up and it's ready to use :smileyhappy:

 

Remember, you must be rooted (Android doesn't let me push key events willy nilly)

It's not designed to be a dictionary, just phrases which take a while to type out like your email address

Yes, use with your existing keyboard. I built it because I wanted to type sentences quickly but keep SwiftKey X Keyboard :smileyhappy:

Just hold the search key on your device when you want it
