The Swiftkey Clarity application, a new streamlined iteration of the popular third-party keyboard platform, is currently available as a free beta on Android. The sleek experimental offering is a simplified, aesthetically pleasing take on the already popular Android incarnation and has been described by one Gizmodo writer as the "best autocorrect system I've ever seen."

The interesting move by Swiftkey to offer this latest Clarity keyboard as a free beta exclusively for Android users may speak to the fact that Apple only allowed it as on their platform in early 2014. Swiftkey had previously wooed the Android market alone for almost four years.

The Swiftkey Clarity beta version leaves out some of the customization features of older versions, such as keyboard color scheme selection and a handful of shortcuts.
