Finish Your Messages Typing Only a Few Letters – Scrybe for Android
Not really a native XDA application, but rather neat and worth mentioning here. XDA member Paul22000 points us to a new keyboard for Android which is built upon Google Scribe API. The app will pretty much work like T9 or any word completion program with the only difference that the words chosen by the keyboard are not just random words, but rather are based on the message itself. The keyboard can literally complete your sentence without needing more than one or two letters out of one of your last words.
According to some of the comments in the thread, the keyboard is a bit slow, but considering the accuracy of word selections, we would think that it very much makes up for lack of speed. Try it out and leave your thoughts.

It’s quite slow, but from a technological standpoint, it’s very cool. I can definitely see the potential.
You can find more information in the application thread.

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads. Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
