[Tutorial] How to prevent your keyboard switching from SwiftKey back to the stock keyboard Angeheftet Angesagt-4 Stimmen 17 Kommentare
Dear SwiftKey users,
We heard several times that some of you may run into an issue that annoys you very much: I selected SwiftKey as default input method, and it will randomly switch back to the stock (OEM) keyboard
Reason no.1 is the RAM cleaner killed SwiftKey. The solution is very easy: add SwiftKey into the white-list.
More importantly: it also could because some of the phones' OS has special RAM management and battery monitor to control the usage of each app. SwiftKey Keyboard for Android supports 5 languages at the same time, plus the Neural (AI learning) technology for predicting next words intelligently might need a bit more power from your phone. This could cause unwanted accidentally killing of SwiftKey
How to prevent it?
Well, different phones have different OS, even if they're all Android, but deeply customized. Here I list some of the phones which ran into this issue.
Samsung devices before Android Nougat update and some other close to stock android OS phones: System Settings > Battery (Power) > Battery Optimization > tap "not optimized" and select "all apps" > Find SwiftKey > Choose "Don't optimize".
Samsung device after Android Nougat (7.0+) update: System Settings > Device Maintenance > Battery > Unmonitored apps > Add apps > check SwiftKey.
Oppo smartphones: Security Center > Battery > Enable Smart power-saving mode > Power-saving app control and management > Add apps > check SwiftKey.
Xiaomi smartphones: Go to Security Tab -Permission-Auto-start management - Add auto-start apps, check SwiftKey.
Hope this little tutorial can help you. Let us know if you have any other tips or tricks to help others out

Samsung DEX layout switching conflict0 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
I'm using swiftkey with my Galaxy S9 and recently started using DEX functionality - it's a Desktop EXperience from samsung, provides desktop layout with connected external display and keyboard/mouse. I'm using 2 languages: english and russian, and while the Swiftkey is active I can not switch languages neither with native Ctrl+Shift shortcut nor with samsungs shift+space, although I checked that in Swiftkey settings dual language is enabled for physical keyboard and there's a shortcut to switch between them.
As long as I switch to the native samsung keybord everything is ok, but it's pretty inconvenient to switch the keyboard before and after connecting external display

Can't change hardware keyboard layout to correct layout for all language0 Stimmen 0 Kommentare

[Feature Request] Favorite Emoji0 Stimmen 1 Kommentar
I know it's been requested in the past, but we really need a favorites emoji tab. The recent emojis only holds about 28, so I can barely hang onto the ones I use regularly, if I happen to use any others. Suddenly I have to search through the countless other emojis, just to find the one I want. I've taken to regularly reorganizing my recently used, in the annoying and tedious task of reusing them all at once so they stay at the top of my recent list.
Please, I love SwiftKey, and just badly want this feature. Not having it is driving me nuts
Landscape mode gibberish text0 Stimmen 1 Kommentar
Wonder if anyone can help, please.
I've been using SwiftKey for years and generally very happy, but whenever I use my phone in landscape mode (ie sideways) , then typing into Google search bar just produces absolute gibberish text - often a variation on the actual text, but reversed in letter order.
ie, if I type 'hello', then it appears on the search bar as olleh with occasionally added other letters at the beginning.
It works fine when phone is in portrait (ie up /down) mode.
Anyone got any ideas, please.

Fat fingers hit spacebar every time I type.0 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
I need a small space between the bottom char row and the space bar/punctuation keys. I tried making the keyboard bigger and it helps but it's too hard to get the top row now. Please allow this feature or alignment of the letters as that may even help if they were up top.

Trying to get the 411 about the SwiftKey Insiders-1 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
How can I become a member in the SwiftKey insiders program so I can take my knowledge of this application further because it is the only one that I have found and used that I feel has given the best selection of tools in order to help assist in making sure I don't have to worry too much about not being able to remember how to spell each and every word in the American Language in the event that I find myself needing a little extra knowledge to correct my mistakes...too bad there isn't a way that you could do something like this but with grammar and punctuation marks in your selection of tools, but then again that would probablybe the hardest part of the English Language, aside from being able to spell the words correctly. But the fact that it's been extremely helpful for me, I always tell my friends about it and they end up getting the application for themselves and then they pass along the same info to their friends. But one of the biggest reasons I love this application is that you can create your own account and continue to use it with every phone tablet or anything else that has the ability to use it and it starts remembering every little detail that makes people feel like they are listening to you speak through your style and that makes it so much better and more unique and useful than any of the other ones that are available. And btw I just wanted to put that out there and hope that it'll be useful for for your company to hear how much it helps! Thanks that's all foks... Lol

Combine Chinese Simplified/Traditional Keyboard1 Stimme 1 Kommentar

Stop Keyboard Popup0 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
How can I stop the keyboard from popping up everytime I click on a page that has informational boxes to fill in? Also the keyboard stays up even after I enter the information. I only want the keyboard to show up when I click in the box to enter info. It is extremely annoying and takes up extra time to have to make the keyboard go away every time I enter a website or app.

I know that there is "recent emojis" tab but in my opinion it's not big enough. Is it possible to like make a new tab where I can choose all emojis I wanna use? Or is there maybe a way to assign words to emojis I am using so I can find them easier by typing for example "eagle" for eagle emoji?

Restore didn't restore any settings0 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
I had to restore my phone and now all my settings are lost. It really took a long time to get things setup to work properly with a bluetooth keyboard and I'm reading in other posts that these settings aren't part of the backup?
If that's true then you should rename the feature to 'sync' not 'backup and sync.' By calling it a backup you imply that our settings are saved. I would have done screen shots or something to save my settings.
Swiping doesn't work with Excel for Android0 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
Is there a compatibility issue between SwiftKey and Excel? I configured SwiftKey to type by swiping. I hadn't experienced any issues until I tried to use it to enter some text in Excel for Android. The keyboard doesn't allow me to enter text by swiping, only by pressing every letter. I'm new to SwiftKey. So far I have always relied on Swype, which works seamlessly with Excel for Android.

Please make the "expand" - key optional, or altogether remove it0 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
I can't even count the number I have accidentally pressed this key. It's quite frustrating to go into the settings 50 times a day, just to activate one-handed mode again. Of course, it's easy to access, but it's so annoying to need to do it constantly throughout the day. Could you implement a function to remove it altogether, for us one-handed users?
