While I love the keyboard I feel like being able to change it around adds a while new level of depth and customization that no other keyboard has.

Add punctuation to number row and apostrophe to qwerty layout1 Stimme 0 Kommentare
Abc layout of Swiftkey lacks essential, I daresay critical features for typing correct text. For example , keyboards developed by HTC do have such. That proper punctuation set familiar to everyone in number row would be accessible by shift key, comma and period in main rows, NOT obstructed/displaced into somewhere between functional keys. It also would be prudent to have apostrophe and hyphen being quickly accessible.
What's strange that azerty layout has apostrophe while that layout is typical for countries with languages that do not use apostrophe as part of grammar or use it quite rarely. Qwerty layout is typical for english speaking countries, can it be a separate English layout? In case of eastern europe languages, slavic languages (in my case - Russian) punctuation plays more important role than in English, German or French, more often changes semantics and much more frequent.
I understand that SwiftKey was designed as phone keyboard, and typing SMS is not something that requires such features, but vendors began put it now as the only input method even on large tablets where full-text input is most likely occuring activity.
As a user of large tablet who enters or edits long fragments of text in several languages I wish to be able access provided charcters without switching to "123" layout, e.g. from number row by using Shift key: - ' " ! ? : ; () # $

Strokes are displayed out of of keyboard area0 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
I have experienced this with a brand new Huawei Mate 10 pro and Whatsapp.
When I receive a notification in whatsapp and open it to respond if keyboard was already displayed if I start drawing the words the strokes are drawn not inside keyboard area (where I draw the words) but on top of it in the conversation area.
If I close the keyboard and open it again the strokes are correctly drawn in keyboard area.
I am using latest version 188.8.131.525
[Feature Request] Need alpha markings on numeric keypad0 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
When signing in to my bank account the numeric keypad is used for entering a long numeric code of my own choosing. It’s impossible to remember a long numeric code so instead I’m creating a code that consists of words that I can remember like “GeorgeHasAFunnyFace”. Other keyboard apps like Smart Keyboard Pro has letters displayed on the numeric keypad and the correct code would then be entered as 4367434272386693223. As of now I have to switch from Swiftkey to Smart Keyboard Pro when logging into my bank.
Swiftkey layout :

I’d very much appreciate if you could add alpha markings on the numeric keypad.
(BTW - the logon process for my Bank is more complex than described but I guess you get the gist of it…)

Lag in Japanese keyboard1 Stimme 0 Kommentare
I have lag while typing in Japanese using Qwerty keyboard. I type one letter and then another and it starts lagging a lot. It doesn't happen with other keyboards like Google's. I already tried installing the app again but no luck. It happens with the stable version too.
Lag in Korean keyboard?0 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
there is a post here about this problem but that's 10 months old and has got no comments so here i go.
I've got a problem with swiftkey where i can write in english without any problem, but when i switch to korean it gets laggy all of a suddena nd it's quite unbearable to type.
I'm currently on SwiftKey 184.108.40.2064 on Huawei P10 Android 7.0 on latest firmware that Huawei provide.
Currently i'm suing GBoard with Korean enabled and that one doesn't get laggy when typing inkorean so it's most likely it's Korean layout on Swiftkey that's the problem
I've already uninstalled and reinstalled Swiftkey but since the keyboard coems as standard in Huawei phones it just uninstall the updates and reinstall the updates again.
I've also tried cleaning the cache.

Explicit predictions on Arabic (Egypt)0 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
I was absolutely shocked and disgusted by the things I saw on my phone when I switch to Arabic (Egypt) the predictive text predicts horrible and detailed descriptions of sexual acts just by typing the word "bed" for example and that was not the only one.
I am now thinking about my younger siblings and the things they might be exposed to that would be scarring to them specially that some of the predictions described extramarital affairs in explicit detail.
I do not know if you started sourcing predictions from sexual forums or shady Facebook groups or maybe other users who use this kind of language but this is completely unacceptable for you to just throw predictions on the phone without filtering the actual content.
For the meantime I will be in installing the app from my phone and my siblings' as well and I will he warning others about this so they can avoid exposing their young to such language.
[Feature Request] Support Norman layout1 Stimme 0 Kommentare
Can the Norman layout please be supported along with Dvorak and Coleman? I believe it's a very nice layout that I moved to from QWERTY on my computer. I would like to have less confusion when typing between my computer and phone. Can the layout be added as an option in the future or at least the ability to make a custom layout?
unreliable swype typing1 Stimme 0 Kommentare
I am trying Swiftkey. I am an old user of the defunct Swype keyboard. I can still use it, as it's installed on my phone, but there are no updates and some bugs will always exist. Still, it's more precise than Swifkey as far as i experience and the shortcuts makes your life much easier.
I thought that since Swype keyboard is not anymore produced, Swiftkey had time to improve and implement the best features of Swype, at least make a choice in the options to use them. Swiftkey looks nice with so many themes, also some shortcuts are finally implemented. But it's extremely unreliable. I type "too" (or randomly any word) and it gives me "tyuol" or some other splited nonsense short words or even autocorrects the previous word in a wrong way, even if in option i unticked the autocorrect feature. It makes me spend more time correcting and deleting unasked words than actually text. I try to swype a simple word like "ich" in german..and it gives me again some weird words or letters..i'm asking myself why? almost every sentence you use that word and still it fails..i have a constant usecure feeling in my hand that the new word will be a fail..
Also, an unexplainable unchangeable backspace function in swiftkey, of not deleting the whole word after swyping a word but only bringing the cursor to the end of the word, makes texting so slow..because very often the word is wrong, but also on the prediction/correction bar i don't find the desired word, so pressing backspace should immediately delete the word and quickly retry. So i have to press backspace long and i might delete even the previous word or part of it. Weird. Weird that there's no option to customise the backspace action.
I like new and fresh updates. That's why i'd like to switch to swiftkey, but these issues make the app unusable. Was a cool first feeling, but it's not even been 24 hours and again I am convinced to delete it.
Another thing, I am texting much more than i call and i use 5 languages. Great, that now you're not limited to 3 languages like before, but maybe also that's why it's not reliable, because very possibly when i need a word, it gives me a word of another language. Why isn't it possible to choose the language manually or set which languages to work in a multilingual keyboard? On Swype keyboard i press long space and release it on the language that i prefer. Than to quickly switch back to the last language used, i swyped shortly from Swype button to space. However i had also the choice to use multilanguages.
This would be a basic option. If i'm not wrong, Huawei phones come from the box with Swiftkey installed and choosing the language is possible. Right or wrong? So why isn't it possible on the google market app?
Can someone give me some answers about my concerns? Am I doing something wrong? My phone is made in 2018, an S9+, no way that it's too slow for this app.
I'm here and wrote this post because i would like to use the app, but please someone tell me if you have a better experience.
I can read for hours the complaints of the users on google play, but there are no answers, no solutions to the problems. That's why i described here my experience with Swiftkey.

Swift Keyboard Continuously Crashing!0 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
I am a Samsung Galaxy S8 user. I am using swift keyboard from last 3 years and had no problems with it.
But yesterday I installed a custom ROM in my android phone, after that it's continuously crashing whenever I am trying to login into any forum. (Like I tried to login into my Tinder account, but it crashed).
I thought that bug was related to the Tinder app, but after researching, looks like issue is with Swift keyboard only.

SOS0 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
Ονομάζομαι Δημήτρης και έχω το εξής πρόβλημα. Μου αρέσει πάρα πολύ η εφαρμογή swiftkey, θεωρώ πως είναι η καλύτερη εφαρμογή πληκτρολογίου και ειδικά τα θέματα που έχει. Αλλά.. Εγώ έχω το Huawei P9 lite 2017. Το έχω 6 μήνες. Άψογη λειτουργία και νητουβκαινφυσικα χρησιμοποιούσα το swiftkey ως πληκτρολόγιο. Τον τελευταίο καιρο, όταν κάνω επανεκκίνηση την συσκευή μου και πάω σε κάποια εφαρμογή για να γραψω, το θέμα που έχω επιλεξει στο πληκτρολόγιο μου εξαφανίζεται και μου ζητάει να βάλω αλλο. Θα σας στείλω και μια φωτογραφία το μήνυμα που μου γράφει κάθε φορά. Έστειλα στην. Huawei μου έδωσε κάποιες οδηγίες και το πρόβλημα δεν λύθηκε και μου είπε να απευθυνθώ σε εσάς. Στο τεχνικό τμήμα υποστήριξης της swiftkey. Μάλιστα χθες αναγκάστηκα και έκανα επαναφορά εργοστασιακών ρυθμίσεων του κινητού μήπως από τις ενημερώσεις έχει κολλήσει κάτι, αλλά και πάλι το πρόβλημα του πληκτρολογίου υπάρχει. Δυστυχώς αναγκάστηκα και έβαλα πληκτρολόγιο της google τώρα, αλλά πολύ θα ήθελα να το τσεκαρετε να δείτε το πρόβλημα υπάρχει γιατί μου αρέσει πολύ το swiftkey, με εξυπηρετεί πάρα πολύ και θα ήθελα να το χρησιμοποιήσω ξανά.
Σας ευχαριστώ πολύ εκ των προτέρων και αναμένω άμεσα απάντηση σας...
