The company's software was also preinstalled on 100 million mobile devices in 2013. It uses advanced natural language processing (NLP) to learn from each user and accurately predict their next word. SwiftKey has won a GSMA Award and a publicly-voted Webby and the company was recently ranked the No 1 hottest startup in London by Wired and the 6th most innovative mobile business in the world by Fast Company.
