Microsoft Has Acquired Swiftkey

Microsoft has acquired SwiftKey, the company behind the popular predictive keyboard app. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but according to a Financial Times report, Microsoft may have payed up to $250 million for the company. SwiftKey was found in 2008 and developed a reputation on Android over a number of years as a replacement keyboard app on phones and tablets. It learns your writing style over time to speed up typing, and even predicts the next word before you’ve started typing it  based on historical patterns. What do you think of Microsoft acquiring SwiftKey ?
