SwiftKey on XKCD

Thanks to Randall Munroe of xkcd.com

There’s a lot of excitement at SwiftKey HQ this morning, as we discover that we’ve been featured on our favourite webcomic: XKCD. We’re thrilled to count Randall Munroe among our fans, and we’d be intrigued to know what his default sentence really is…

Join in the conversation by letting us know what SwiftKey predicts for you when you press the central prediction key. (Hint: if it’s “God save the Queen” you probably still have the Queen’s English language model enabled.) Tweet to us on @SwiftKey or add your comments below.

    Mine is: I am on the 7.15 train. It’s going to take forever to get the best, and the other day. I have a cup of tea. I have a cup of tea. I have a cup of tea.

  • http://fiftypachaas.blogspot.com Stuart

    If I was doing right, mine was “I am not sure if you know her, and the 20th century.” If Swift Key knows what that means, it’s frighteningly clever, as i don’t have a clue.

  • http://www.fernandobarillas.com Fernando B

    I am a beautiful person. I have a good time to time. (Hahaha, damn right! Swiftkey knows me so well.)

  • http://www.leetomaton.eu Lee Atkins

    I gave this a go and this has come up with “I am at work…………….”

  • Mark

    Mine says

    that that is not a problem with the latest version of the most popular and I am a beautiful person. ……..

    I don’t understand what it’s going on about

  • Johan

    Let’s see.

    “I have no idea what to do it. ”

    Typing in the Chrome beta is really broken with SwiftKey.

  • Charlie Edmunds

    @Johan – We’re doing our best (I prefer to use Chrome too) but it’s always tricky trying to work with apps that are in Beta.

  • Johan

    @Charlie – Since all apps interact with the IME using the same API should it really matter if the app using the IME is in beta or not? It works fine using the built-in android IME so I assume it is SwiftKey that doesn’t implement the IME interface properly?

    But I’m sure you’ll be able to figure it out and fix it before SwiftKey 3 is out of beta. :)

    I am a total of about a week.

  • Brian Donley

    Mine: “I am a wise choice. The creator of the most of the big chains where we put the finishing touches on the web, go to the store cupboard in the world did this over and over again.”
    Apparently I am all powerful in some very specific areas.

    I am aware it doesn’t allow for claims.

    Is what I got which makes no frigging sense at all.

  • feedDunk

    Mine says: “I am a Star Wars fan as well as the first time in the world. It’s been difficult to say the least.”

  • Kevin

    “I am waiting on Carlos Santana, Carolina, South Boston, Massachusetts, USA.”

    Been using SwiftKey for a while an I don’t think I’ve ever used the words “Carlos”, “Santana”, “Carolina”, “Boston”, or “Massachusetts”. I do have both English and Spanish enabled, though.

  • Mikael

    I am a beautiful person.

    “I am not allowed to tell anyone so keep that in the US.”

    LOL

  • Stefan

    “I am not sure whether I have a seat left to Amsterdam (I just asked the people that planned to come along if they could make it), but I do have one seat left to Berlin. The price is 35 €.”

    It makes sense, but this is probably because I mostly type in German.

  • Lakshminarayanan

    Mine goes: “I am not who you think I am…..”

    WAIT WAT!?

  • Bill

    I checked mine and it came up with ” I am not coming to work today”.
    Great!

    Bill.

    mine says “I am really walking home from work.” I have NO idea why…I rarely (if ever) walk home from work! LOL Too funny for sure!

  • Michael

    “I am at least one of the highest insulin requirements I’ve seen. ”
    I don’t use insulin so I don’t know where this came from.

  • Charles

    “I am in the rotunda behind the scenes.”

  • Jeff

    “I am busy in the lounge”

    Huh?

  • Kevin

    I just installed it, so the data is just from my facebook page and SMS history.

    “I am here. Click http : / / http://www.youtube.com / watch? I have iron diamonds and gold… I miss you too! I am having a good day, are you? Can’t wait to see you! I love you. We had such a great time and spotted this Moose in our backyard. Today we hiked a few miles and miles from the list of the Bible, and I accidently sold it on half.com not realizing that it was borrowed. I can either be a good experience. I have a 10 % off code with others.” (repeats last sentence)

  • Joe

    “I am in the world…………………………………………………………………………………”

    Obviously my phone has become self-aware and is high as balls.

  • Jeff

    I am full of good quality.

    Damn right I am!

  • Bryan

    I am on vacation!
    I guess my device want to be on a beach some whwere, lol.

    Oh this is ridiculous. I only mentioned this once. “I am calling PETA. Showing whales your weiner is more than a few days.”

  • robert

    I am a beautiful person…..

  • Jerome

    Mine is (translated from french to english) :
    I’m on the bus, I’ll be there by 15.

  • Dave Campagna

    “I am the only one of the meds I take for granted. I am usually feeling very well. I appreciate any help.”

  • Kizaru Hiruko

    Mine is:

    “I told you time and again, when you want a new car, upgrade to a Droid Charge versus ThunderBolt by HTC. Why did you get a Galaxy S II?”

    It seems like it mixed my conversation with my mom with my conversation about my aunt. Also, it’s taking web searches into account.

  • Andre GS

    Mine says:

    “I am going to be a good day…..”

  • Scott

    Mine: I am at least one of the most part, but I think I have a great day.

  • TenshiNo

    Apparently, I’m late with my bills a lot. I got this:

    “I am sorry. I had thought it was due on the 15th.”

    Translated from Portuguese to English: Hi, I’m fine, but the thing I don’t know, if I really don’t know, if I really don’t know… (ad infinitum)

  • Dakota Weatherhead

    Looks like mine reads as

    “I am not from here.”

  • Tracy M

    Mine says “I am? I have a smoothie every morning.”

    It’s true, I do. I’m not sure how Swiftkey knows it, but I do.

  • Andrew

    “I am kind and handsome. I enjoy our friendship almost as much as I enjoy logic puzzles. I love sports. Have a good night!”

    That logic puzzles part had me cracking up.

  • Lee

    “I am a beautiful person….”

    As this is absolute tosh, never again can I trust my phone!

  • Kenyon Wallace

    “I am not going to be able to make it to the parade. I am thinking spaghetti factory. Let your friends and family.” Not sure how it came up with any of that!

  • Kaoru

    “I’m in front of the laptop…”

    Still working in IT…

  • Zach

    “You can get the whole half – life series for $ 10 dollars for the next 12 hours.”

    Quite an interesting sentence, considering it was generated automatically by Swiftkey.

  • Zach

    “I will go wherever you want as long as I can be back at the same time.”

    Sounds legit.

  • Zach

    “Thanks for the first time in the world.”

  • Jonathan

    I am working on the 21st century.

  • Bob

    I am laughing and cringing at what SwiftKey wrote. Far too bizarre, but I am bound to be honest. This is SwiftKey, not me:

    Madonna bares breast cancer awareness. I sing the body nonprivate.

  • tobes

    guess this is where all the beautiful people come from:

  • Daniel

    This is what mine says: “I am tired, I’m half dead here :P I don’t get it o.O, and I think Angel too. I asked her questions and she asked some too. She asked for my opinion on things I had already asked her about. Overall, I didn’t feel so nervous while we had the actual conversation, but I was so fucking nervous to start talking to her. I gave her a handshake when she told me she ditched last period to go to BK. So I asked them to the house and get 12, so I’m going to go to BK.”

  • Lennart

    I’m afraid mine goes like this (translated):

    “Hey, how are you doing? How can I not… :’( i don’t want to be left alone anymore! :’( i don’t want to be left alone anymore! :’(”

    I’ve been using this phone for about two months. I have just installed SwiftKey today (after reading the XKCD comic, thx Randall! :) ). Apparently, SwiftKey guessed correctly that this is a tough period I’m in… XD :P
