I have a tablet that I use SwiftKey on, and just also installed it onto my new smartphone. I made sure backup & sync was enabled on the tablet, then signed into the same account on the phone and told it to sync, but my account data won't load.

Keyboard crashing (?!) Beantwortet0 Stimmen 16 Kommentare
I'm using ResurrectionRemix rom (5.8.5, based on Nougat 7.1.2) on OnePlus3.
After one of the latest updates the keyboard is constantly, not sure... crashing (my guess). There is no error but it frequently disappears while typing. I'm not hitting 'back' button and I'm 100% sure of this.
Input lag on Pixel 2 XL (Oreo 8.1)2 Stimmen 16 Kommentare
I have just bought a Pixel 2 XL a week ago coming from OnePlus 5 running Nougat 7.1.1, and ever since I have installed SwiftKey I notice input lag very often when I'm typing. It will go away for a short while then come back when I'm typing. It's very sporadic and unpredictable. I'll be typing normally and there will be no lag whatsoever, but suddenly as I type there will be a slight pause and lag before the word is completed.
On my OnePlus 5 I had no such issues and suddenly it's getting very irritating on my Pixel 2 XL which is supposed to have the best software experience of any Android device. So I'm not sure why it's happening.
I have tried clearing SwiftKey app cache and it doesn't seem to help. Has the app not been optimised for 8.1 yet? I have been using SwiftKey for at least 7 years now and not had this particular issue in input lag.
[Fixed in beta] Swiftkey won't change to my preferred theme on Oreo beta Geplant0 Stimmen 16 Kommentare
When I select Minimal Dark Blue which is already downloaded, it goes off to download it again and crashes when I select it.It's the best keyboard software out there and hope that Android 8.0 support will be improved in the near future.

Swiftkey has failed to sync my saved words5 Stimmen 15 Kommentare
Sync is enabled on my old and new phones. I have synced both phones ans still i am unable to see my saved words.
Is there any hard way to move my data to my new phone, my old phone has words which are saved for a period of three years.
Swiftkey Backup Problem8 Stimmen 15 Kommentare
Hello. My problem is about backup and sync. First I have to tell you these. 5 years ago I was using LG G3, and I moved on iPhone 6 Plus and I was able to use my old predictions. And then I moved on Xiaomi Mi 8, I was still be able to use all my learned data. And now I changed my phone to Oneplus 7 pro, and in the app I cannot see any of my learned data.
https://data.swiftkey.com/view-data in this website I can see my learned data, the words that I use most before on the other phones, but they won't show up on my new phone. 5-6 years of learned data was making my life easier but now I am not happy to use this app. So question is what should I do?
Stop period/dot from forcing a space after it13 Stimmen 15 Kommentare
Currently using latest beta. I am a technical / computer person and therefore my writing vocabulary often includes things with period/dots in them that are not words (i.e. e.g. 192.168.1.1 www.vcu.edu and so-on). The constant forced auto-insertion of a space when I am trying to use a period as a dot, not as punctuation, is driving me crazy and often forces mangled/incorrect emails, texts, etc. I thought turning on the option to insert a period by double-tapping the space bar would turn that off - it did not.
I seem to recall in a previous version of Swiftkey there was the ability to turn off the dot/period from forcing a space after it.
I think when I tried another keyboard (GBoard?) it did not do that. However, I am used to the way Swiftkey works and would hate to switch to something else....
Cannot remove word prediction Beantwortet4 Stimmen 15 Kommentare
SwiftKey started suggesting me "c è" everytime I press "c", which is annoying as what I really want is "c'è" with the apostrophe (Italian).
My problem is I cannot get rid of that "c è" as if I long press the suggested word, nothing happens. Long pressing other words works, so this is really strange.
Thank you in advance,
Disable flow AND gesture.17 Stimmen 15 Kommentare
Could it be possible to add a option to disable gesture input altogether?
I do not like using flow as it makes me type slower, so I put it in gesture and because of that, sometimes deletes words or lowers the keyboard which is very annoying.
I am just wanting you to add a option to disable it entirely. I know I would use it, and there has someone else out there too!
Why can't I insert a GIF when replying to a message? Beantwortet-1 Stimmen 15 Kommentare
When I reply to message and select a GIF I get prompted for the recipient as though it is a new message. This loses the recipient for the reply. This happens in all of my messaging apps. It doesn't happen with emojis. Why?
Unwanted comma's3 Stimmen 15 Kommentare
How can I stop unwanted comma's from cropping up? Also it causes the following word to be capitalised. I find it so annoying that I'm thinking about getting another keyboard. I've had this since it was a paid app, in fact I paid for dozens of keyboard looks before they just gave it away, free.
Emoji search (as in Gboard)18 Stimmen 15 Kommentare
It would be quite useful, if there were a way to search for emojis, when the Emoji button has been pressed.
It should be kind of like how Gboard does it, where you switch to Emoji mode and then you can search (eg. you type "cat" and see the cat emoji 🐈).
This is a feature request for the SwitfKey Android keyboard; I cannot use Swiftmoji, as it is english only and not available in Switzerland.
[Feature Request] Switch to incognito automatically10 Stimmen 15 Kommentare
Can I make swiftkey switch automatically to incognito mode whenever I open specific apps or windows? Such as incognito tabs in Chrome and Firefox.
Otherwise, is there a (non root) 3rd party app that can do it?
My keyboard is showing bottom navigation buttons bellow keyboard Beantwortet2 Stimmen 15 Kommentare
Hello. I have the new Moto g5 plus which in the digital sensor has the feature to navigate thru left and right swipes on the sensor so i don't need to use the android on-screen buttom to return or anything else. The buttons doesnt even show on screen. But when i use the swiftkey or other keyboard, it creates the bottom buttons making my screen lose some space. How can i use this keyboard without the buttons just like my Samsung note?
How to change keyboard layout to my own custom layout7 Stimmen 15 Kommentare
Hello, SwiftKey is the best keyboard, but the qwerty layout has flaws, as well as all the other keyboard layouts for thumb typing.
I have made my own layout, and want to test it out on SwiftKey :). Is there any way to add my own layout into the language select screen? Maybe if I rooted my phone?
I am willing to relearn a layout, and it's really easy for me to do. I want one which allows me to be sloppy and have really good autocorrect. I can text without looking, but every time I look at my screen, I see the same errors caused by certain keys being too close.
So yeah, I made my own layout, and if it's not perfect, I have an idea for writing a program which can figure out a better layout, and I will continually test each new layout.
And yes I've tried LOADS of android keyboards and also different layouts(qwerty, colemak, dvorak, azerty, etc). Swiftkey is the best for autocorrection, and the smartest so far.
I'm currently using JBak keyboard with my own layout, but it's autocorrect is rubbish.
Why go to so much hassle? because I know it's possible to text without looking at my screen, and I like being able to look up at the world whilst texting at a fast speed, followed by a quick proof read.
Adding predictions Beantwortet4 Stimmen 15 Kommentare
Unless I am missing it... The long press needs to show both remove and add words to the dictionary
I have experienced many times a desired word is not learned and not added to the dictionary.
Make it easy for me to add.
One paragraph I will type a word, select the autocorrect desired... Next paragraph, same typing of same word... Is not given as a option to select.
And yes app has been reinstalled.
Transfer/sync predictions not working [Reported]1 Stimme 14 Kommentare
My predictions and saved words are not transferred to my new phone and the saved words don't show up in predictions.
I have synced both phones and I have tried uninstalling swiftkey beta and reinstalling it.
I can see the words are saved when I view my data on the swiftkey website.
How to get more than 5 languages Beantwortet1 Stimme 14 Kommentare
Is there anything I can do to add more than 5 languages? While I can add more to my list, I cannot activate more than 5 at any given time.
It is also quite a nuisance that you cannot instruct SwiftKey to restrict suggestions to a single language. If languages share the same fundamental layout principles, auto suggestions (auto-correct) will consider several languages at once which can make life quite hard.
For instance, German, French, English (UK) and Dutch will be "running" simultaneously, sometimes producing ridiculous suggestions.
