SHANGHAI, Sept. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Award-winning app developer CooTek today announced that its next-generation TouchPal X keyboard app for Android has been downloaded over 1 million times from the Google Play Store, a milestone reached less than three days after its launch. The popular app topped half a million downloads in less than 24 hours.

Thousands of Google Play reviews have provided CooTek with positive feedback on the app, with users declaring it "the best" keyboard app available for Android. TouchPal X is already backed up by more than 30,000 five-star reviews praising it for its ease of use, speed, accuracy, customization options, great interface, language options and free pricing.

"The number of downloads and positive reviews we've received since TouchPal X launched on Google Play has reinforced that we are on the right track when it comes to offering an unparalleled user experience," said Michael Wong, CEO of CooTek. "Our goal from the very beginning was to go beyond providing the fastest and most accurate keyboard to deliver a 'must-have,' enjoyable way to interact with touchscreen devices."

Outside of being free, what makes TouchPal X stand out from other keyboard apps is its TouchPal Wave technology that allows users to enter a full sentence in one seamless gesture. TouchPal X also includes more than 70 different languages, contextual prediction technology that learns your individual typing style and a multitude of customizable features, from "walkie-talkie" style input to more than 30 different customizable themes.
