SwiftKey Keyboard for iPhone Gains New Emoji Insights Feature

The popular SwiftKey keyboard for iPhone was today updated to add a fun new tracking feature, Emoji Insights. Emoji Insights gives users a look into their personal emoji usage habits, offering up data on top emoji used, signature emoji, and emoji state, as detailed below.
My Signature Emoji - The emoji you use more than other people. This emoji is generated by the emoji you overuse compared to the average - this is not the emoji you use most often.

My Top Emoji - The emoji you use most often. This is a cloud-like visualization of the emoji you use the most - the bigger the emoji in the 'cloud', the more you use it.

Emoji State - The US state that most reflects your emoji use. We looked at how people use emoji in each state and compared your emoji use to that data to generate this stat. Do your emoji match up with your home state, or somewhere totally different?
Emoji Insights within SwiftKey are accessible to all users who use SwiftKey Cloud, the feature that allows user preferences and learned language data to be backed up and synced across several different devices. Emoji data can be accessed and shared with family and friends via social networks through the My Profile option in the SwiftKey app.

swiftkeyinsights
SwiftKey has aimed to distinguish itself from other third-party keyboards through the inclusion of typing statistics and inside information on how the app works for each individual user. In April, the SwiftKey keyboard was updated with usage statistics, letting users get a look at words typed, distance Flow-ed, words predicted, words corrected, and more.

Today's new emoji usage statistics come seven months after the SwiftKey keyboard was updated to include both emoji and predictive emoji suggestions.

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

I'd use 3rd party keyboards if they were more reliable… sometimes it lags when loading and in some places they just don't work at all. I know it's iOS fault, maybe in iOS 9 I'll give it a try again…

Also, kinda scary to have everything you type being communicated to some random server.

Just think of the business applications:

"The proprietor of this new account really likes the word 'apposite', so I thought we'd put Pauslon on it given her frequent use of that word."

That's… really all I have.

Actually I've never seen anyone use a third-party keyboard app.

I actually use this keyboard since it came out.
Since I write mostly write in two different languages... also within one message or even sentence... any other keyboard constantly messed up autocorrect.
This one here... however, lets you set two languages for ONE keyboard... eliminating the issue for me. Plus... it is black!

I am sorry to report that iOS 9 still is a horrible mess regarding keyboards, possibly even worse than it was in iOS 8. I have had keyboards not loading at all and in the end decided to switch back to the stock keyboard.

one reason I went to a android. my typing is horrible and swiftkeys helped with word prediction. but having to kill mail and imessage several times a day just got old.

I personally use NinType, and it's absolutely amazing. Or, at least it would be if Apple would fix this broken third-party keyboard implementation...

yes after a year still not fixed. I wonder if it ever will.
