SwiftKey has announced a Series B funding round of $17.5 million, lead by Index Ventures.
The UK-based developer offers one of Android’s most popular paid apps, and is consistently cited as the best third-party keyboard for the platform. The company has licensed its excellent autocorrect technology to Samsung and BlackBerry, and is looking to expand further into North America with this latest funding round.
Recently, the company released SwiftKey Cloud, the next iteration of its Android keyboard, which allows users to synchronize their custom settings and dictionaries to the cloud for use on multiple devices.
