It appears that the popular SwiftKey keyboard for iOS will soon be gaining a Theme Store, MacRumors has learned. SwiftKey already has three themes available in app for free, but the new Theme Store seems to add 11 additional themes that can be purchased at prices between $0.99 and $1.99.

Lower priced $0.99 themes change the color of the keyboard, and some of the available options include "Coal," "Iceberg," and "Juice," three minimal themes that turn the keyboard black, white, or orange.

There's also a dynamic "Shooting Stars" theme that uses Parallax to cause the stars in the background to shift when the iPhone is moved, giving it a distinctive 3D feel. "Shooting Stars" is priced at $1.99, and in addition to the parallax effect, users will also see an occasional shooting star soar across the keyboard.

These new themes will undoubtedly be a welcome addition to SwiftKey users who have wanted to change the look of their keyboards to better suit their personal styles or visual preferences, and it's likely SwiftKey will continually add new themes to the Theme Store following its release.

The new SwiftKey Theme Store appears to be rolling out to SwiftKey's beta testing group, but it will likely be coming to all users as an app update in the near future. Beta testers can access the new themes through the SwiftKey container app in the "Themes" section.

Swiftkey can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

I still use the default keyboard because I can't get the 3rd party keyboards to work consistently enough.

I agree, used SwiftKey several times, but the the endless crashing was just too annoying.

I just can't. seeing the capital letters at all times irritates me on the default keyboard. always get confused if the lock is enabled or not lol plus I can't use german / english at the same time
Capital letters are on hardware keyboards to this day and have been there for ages and people have been using them just fine all these years.

I have SwiftKey as my only keyboard since day one and I have never experienced any crash whatsoever. SwiftKey is a blessing because I can type Dutch and English without switching keyboards. Is it only a problem for non iPhone 6 users, because I see so many complaints and I have truly never experienced any problems.

Have you never had it not show up in Messeges so one has to quit the app and launch it again to get the keyboard to show up? Or the keyboard not showing when trying to search from the home screen (swipe down)?

Agree on the dual lingo support – it's great –*and I really like SwiftKey except that it isn't working as consistently/gracefully as the keyboards built-in to iOS.
