SwiftKey's beta now goes through the Play Store

+SwiftKey is my keyboard.  There are many like it, but this one is mine.

To me, it's the best keyboard.  I try others but pretty soon find myself back at it.  There's a myriad of reasons that I won't get into at this juncture, but I did want to let you know that as a fan of 'beta programs' I'm excited that SwiftKey is now doing away with their older practice of providing beta APK files via their VIP forum page, and now do it the suggested way - via using the Google Groups for beta opt in on the Play Store.

To opt in you have to join the beta discussion on Google Forums

Then go to the Play Link and choose to 'become a tester'.

Then you will start getting a few more frequent updates than normal as you test out the beta features.

Unfortunately it still installs as a second app (so you'd have SwiftKey and SwiftKey Beta keyboards installed)
