Fresh Android Apps for Aug. 16: Swiftkey update, ZabKab

by Brad Spirrison

In this edition of Fresh Android Apps, we tell you about a useful update to one of our favorite smartphone and tablet applications and tap into a new taxi finder service (which has separate apps for passengers and drivers).

You ready? Let’s go.

SwiftKey 3 Keyboard update ($3.99)

In an effort to make sure we never have to deal with poorly constructed autocorrects ever again on our Android devices, SwiftKey just unveiled another update for Android-powered smartphones and tablet devices. New features in version 3.01 include Smart Space, which detects extra or omitted spaces in real-time, more languages and a better UI. If you haven’t embraced this app on Android before, there is no better time than now.

ZabKab (Free)

This simple and functional app allows users to share their exact locations with taxi drivers in their vicinity simply by tapping into the screen. A complementary app, ZabKab Driver, alerts drivers to where potential passengers are located. Seems like a win-win for all involved.
