Probably 85% of the mistakes I have to correct are the result of hitting the period key instead of the space bar. Can we have an option to move it, or make it a hard-press or long-press, or.....something. It's my only significant problem with an otherwise outstanding keyboard. Thanks much.

Gif finder filters out "inappropriate" words6 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
Will SwiftKey ever implement a "bad word" filter toggle in the settings?
Currently, trying to search for gifs using...explicit or colorful language, only yields "No Search Results." This is silly at best, annoying at worst. Why the language filter?

Please remove SwiftKey logo from spacebar.6 Stimmen 6 Kommentare
The logo stands out and looks terrible on my otherwise all-black theme. I know what keyboard I'm using. You don't need to advertise it to me. I'm currently using a size smaller than desired only because it hides the logo. Could you please, please, please remove the logo from this otherwise great keyboard?
Punctuation and spaces6 Stimmen 3 Kommentare
This is driving me crazy. I get spaces before, but not after, semicolons, colons, etc. But I get spaces after opening parenthesis and brackets. And spaces where there should be nine around apostrophes and quotation marks.
Consider these un-corrected lines:
Well go then ;don't come back.
Trey 'a coat
--(should have been "Trey's coat". Even tap-typing it didn't work the first time).
Why hasn't this been fixed yet? I love SwiftKey, but this is enough to drive me away.
How to disable emoji predictions6 Stimmen 5 Kommentare
When I switch to the emoji in the last version, the page shown is a crystal ball (apparently it is the beta predictions), instead of the "recent" (with the clock page). Does anyone knows how to change that ?
Edit April 26, 2018 : well, it looks like the problem has been resolved with the last version. Thanks!
Voice input6 Stimmen 6 Kommentare
They only reason why I don't like swift key compared to gboard is due to lack of quick access to voice input. Can you please bring voice input key top right as it's currently placed in the gboard. To be honest Windows phone keyboard was so much better.
Stop suggesting capital "i" when I'm typing in Swedish (where lowercase "i" is a common word)6 Stimmen 2 Kommentare
I have Swedish and English activated, because I tend to use both languages. But whenever I'm typing a sentence in Swedish and hitting the letter "i", Swiftkey changes that to "I" (capital i) instead, even though my intention was to write "i" (which is a really, really common word in Swedish, meaning "in"). I've tried multiple times to tell swiftkey not to suggest "I" at all, but it doesn't help.
I'm pretty sure the reason is that "I" is an English word, which for some reason takes precedence over the Swedish (equally common) word "i". Please, please, could you develop the software such that the English suggestion does not automatically takes precendence in such "ties", but let it be based on the language the previous word belonged to instead? That would help a lot!
Swedish Language/layout is forced to type capital "i" every time.6 Stimmen 3 Kommentare
When you're typing away with the Swedish language and layout, you're forced to go back and correct all the "i''s. Swiftkey autocorrects every single "i" to a "Capital I".
We never have or ever will use capital "i" mid sentences.

I use three languages on a daily basis.

Please make it a lot easier to switch languages!
[Duplicate] Settings option to Turn off auto spaces6 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
Settings option to Turn off auto spaces
So many users have complained about this auto-spacing issue that it surely must be becoming embarrassing to SwiftKey and for as good as SwiftKey has been in other areas, this one failure to address the problem is driving users right away from your products. For credibility of your name being ranked highly, you need to address this problem as soon as possible and it is entirely technically possible to code a fix right now and gain some loyalty back again.
This problem has been an ongoing issue for nearly 12-months now.
Turn off auto spaces:
This is a global issue across all devices!

Symbol layout6 Stimmen 3 Kommentare
Please add customization options for the symbol keyboard layout. The SwiftKey one is totally unintuitive - the normal symbol layout that's been in use for years didn't need reinventing, and it's one of the ways the standard Google keyboard is clearly superior for my use. The new layout completely trips up long-standing muscle memory for no discernable benefit.

Customize a key (feature request) - OR - Replace the Comma(,) key with Question Mark (?)6 Stimmen 1 Kommentar
I've been using Swiftkey for years now, having tried many many alternatives and finding it far superior than other options.
The only thing that is missing is the option to customize a key. For example, replace a symbol with another.
I have almost no use for the comma(,) and I use the question mark(?) all the time and the question mark needs two presses which is annoying, and really slows typing.
I am guessing Swiftkey has statistics of people's keypresses, they can check frequency. My guess is most people use the question mark a lot more than the comma, so why not make it default instead of the comma (if not adding the customize feature).
Many thanks for the best keyboard.

Voice to text button placement6 Stimmen 3 Kommentare
Hello, I'm a beta user, I don't bother with any other keyboard apps, this one is perfect. I do agree with all post that the voice to text button should be easier to access. Why can't you just create a custom keyboard (or two) 😀 with the key placement stand alone by itself...
[Feature Request] Add Android Wear support6 Stimmen 3 Kommentare
As it is possible to use 3th party keyboards on Android Wear if would be really nice if you would make it available.
First of all there are only a few language supported on AW therefore a keyboard which support more would be really successful.
Secondly all the words and usage statistics which the keyboard learnt on my phone and tablet could sync make it easier to type on a small screen.
Please if it is possible, make it happen!
Galaxy S8 keyboard types sporadically6 Stimmen 19 Kommentare
I am a loyal user of the Swiftkey keyboard! Unfortunately the keyboard does not function properly on my new Samsung Galaxy S8. It jumps ahead a space mid-word then continues typing the word but at that point it is not a real word because it is the second half of the word. This is the case with about 50% of what I type.
How to change keyboard layout to my own custom layout6 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.
Wrong word selection constantly6 Stimmen 59 Kommentare
Lately this app has taken a downturn. It constantly puts in the wrong word. When I backspace to fix it, the word I just input shows up. Ugh! Why wasn't it selected to start with. I've stopped and deliberately made sure I swiped exactly from letter to letter, and it will still put in what it wants to, but what I swiped or what my history would predict. It not only suggests by preemptively puts in a word I rarely use over what I've just used or have used hundreds of times since I stated this app.

Problems with SwiftKey keyboard placement and OnePlus Gesture Navigation Beantwortet5 Stimmen 10 Kommentare
Hi - I have a OnePlus 7 Pro running Android v10, set up for gesture control. As such, I no longer have any navigation buttons on the bottom of my display.
I am having a big problem with SwiftKey, where the keyboard can't be moved to the bottom of my display:
Aside from losing valuable screen real estate, this causes a lot of SwiftKey failures for me.
For example, If I am trying to type with the space bar, or enter key (or, any of the bottom keys), and accidentally hit just a little bit lower than the bottom row key, SwiftKey registers it as a "close keyboard" event, and I lose whatever I was typing. This is a HUGE pain in the rear!
Please update SwiftKey to allow the keyboard to be located at the bottom of the screen when the user has selected a gesture navigation method. Note that there are multiple manufacturers that have their own version of gesture navigation (like OnePlus), so the solution should be generic enough to detect that any gesture navigation implementation will allow the keyboard to be located at the bottom of the screen.

Reason why Swiftkey doesn't sync predictions... anymore...5 Stimmen 2 Kommentare
Listen, I know. Long story short, got Swiftkey on my old phone for years, now I have a new phone and yeah, it won't sync. After hours of research, I found out why... According to Wikipedia...
"In 2016 SwiftKey users began reporting personal details given by SwiftKey as suggested words to other users whom does not have previous connections, other issue includes foreign language and obscene words. SwiftKey responded by disabling cloud sync for word suggestions and released an update to mitigate the issue."
I think this is why. Practically, Swiftkey is now peer-pressured. I think they don't want that issue to happen again, so that's why they don't solve the prediction problem, because that problem solved a previous issue and they don't want such issues to happen again.
Let's hope that they let it return... someday...

It's been more than a month now, since SwiftKey stopped predicting my saved words, emails etc. Its very annoying and not at all time saving.
I'll appreciate if someone can point me to another keyboard other than gboard. I'm done with SwiftKey now. They couldn't care less about their customers. Tweeted them few times, no replies or anything. Just pathetic and sad experience now.
Incognito stole my punctuation Geplant5 Stimmen 7 Kommentare
Since yesterdays update the keyboard automatically switches to the incognito black mode.
