Just as Android 3.0 is making its official debut, apps for the platform are already pouring out. TouchType has unveiled its SwiftKey Tablet typing app, designed specifically for Honeycomb.

The Tron-like program is intended to boost productivity when typing on a touch screen with features such as language detection, text entry predictions and "thumb-optimized keyboard skin."

I'm still not a fan of typing on touch screens for long periods of time (meaning anything longer than a basic text message), but that doesn't mean that advancing such technologies is pointless. Rather, it would be nice to be proven wrong.

The app is currently available in the Android Market (now in a browser!) for $1.99. SwiftKey will also be pre-installed with optimized keyboard layouts on the Motorola Xoom.
