SwiftKey develops applications and technologies that learn from their users to make text entry easier, efficient, and more productive. The company is best-known for its consumer apps, notably the SwiftKey keyboard for Android and SwiftKey Note for iPhones and iPads. SwiftKey technology learns from each user to predict their next word and autocorrect, making text input faster and easier.

In 2014, it was named one of the top 5 most innovative productivity companies in the world by Fast Company. Last year, Wired magazine ranked SwiftKey the No 1 hottest startup in London. The SwiftKey keyboard was the biggest selling paid app on Google Play in 2013 and 2012 and has been No 1 in over 58 countries. It made the top 10 best-selling free apps in the United States and has been the No 1 productivity app in the US, UK and many other markets.

SwiftKey's revenue comes from sales of apps on Google Play and Amazon Appstore as well as licensing deals with OEM manufacturers. SwiftKey has licensed its technology to a number of OEMs including deals with Tier 1s. In 2013, SwiftKey technology was on more than 100 million devices.

SwiftKey was founded in August 2008 by Jon Reynolds and Ben Medlock, both Cambridge University graduates. The company is currently headquartered in Southwark, London, United States, with offices in San Francisco and Seoul. The company is also a trademark of TouchType Ltd, a limited company registered in England and Wales.
