In the wake of the horrific concert bombing in Manchester, AT&T is offering free calls to the area and will credit any calls or SMS messages made to England from the 22nd to 24th. Virgin Media is making all calls to Manchester landlines in the 0161 prefix area free. Virgin Mobile in the US is also waiving fees, as is Sprint. No word yet from T-Mobile or Verizon, but I wouldn't be surprised to see them do the same soon.

Members of the Chaos Computer Club, Europe's largest association of hackers, claim they have broken the security of the S8's Iris scanner.

With the dust settling after the deluge caused by I/O 2017, it's time to take a closer look at some of the many other things that came with out last week.

The latest SwiftKey beta release adds support for new typing languages and keyboard layouts [APK Download]

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

SwiftKey is one of the top choices for Android keyboards out there. It is my go-to and I strongly prefer it over Gboard for a variety of reasons. Regardless of where you stand, the best options offer a lot of language choices for either non-English speaking and/or multilingual users.

SwiftKey already has a large list of languages and dialects to choose from, and the latest beta version adds several more, plus some additional keyboard layouts.
