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...
I have been using sk since 2013 and have brought my predictions into new phones 2-3 times so I know my account has info. But when I restored this time I got none of my words that had been in my personal dictionary.
What do I need to do to get my predictions back?
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.
The navigation bar on Android devices almost always shows a light or white color navigation bar instead of the same color as the app.
Gboard is implementing this feature and I can't believe SwiftKey doesn't already have it.
If it is dark and I start to type, my entire screen is dark themed but the navigation bar will be a blinding white color.
There are many apps that change this setting to match the rest of the app. Please do it for the SwiftKey keyboard.
I have a Galaxy Note 8 and the only way to have a dark keyboard color is to manually change it for SwiftKey using.a third party app. I would rather it work natively.
It would be very nice if there were a way to adjust what symbol(s) are in the long-press menu of each key, as well as which one of those is the default. For instance:
* I use tilde (~) a lot, to indicate a sentence spoken with a joking tone. I'd gladly give up, say, double-quote on 'C' to get quicker access to it. (Yes, I know that if you turn on the dedicated number row, 'E' gets tilde as its long-press instead of 3, but that costs valuable screen real-estate.)
* The number keys, when you have the dedicated number row on, don't have any long-press symbols assigned at all.
* As I Canadian, I use the English (UK) locale, since there isn't a dedicated Canadian English locale and we mostly use the British spellings for words. However, this means SwiftKey insists on making the default long-press symbol on 'X' the pound symbol; since our currency is the Canadian dollar, I'd much rather have it default to the dollar sign.
* As an English-speaker living in Québec, I occasionally need to type a French word or place name which contains an accented character. However the only accents which are used with any frequency are the acute, grave, and circumflex on a vowel or cedilla on 'C'; the other fifty-or-so accented characters available when the 'Show all accented characters' option is on are or little use to me.
When using Swiftkey in coding/scripting applications I often have to undo the auto space/cap swiftkey does.
If you want to write something like "!test" it will automatically make it "! Test" same with file names ".nomedia" will become " .Nomedia" (or ". nomedia" if the app has auto cap disabled for that field).
In most applications (in english at least) if you have a punctuation that doesn't come at the end of another non space character, then you likely don't mean it as part of a normal sentence and don't want the space and auto capitalization.
Would it be possible to change this or get an option to disable this? Right now using it for anything aside from natural conversational typing is almost counter productive because of it.
I just noticed that after a certain update my gifs are now censored. I've been a swift key user since the beginning (since the paid app days) and I'm now actively looking for an alternative. If I wanted to use an app that controls what I can search or use I would just use APPLE.
Using the latest version of Swiftkey and Swiftkey Beta cause scaling issues on the keyboard. Using the Galaxy S9+ with resolution set to WQHD+. Have to set keyboard to "Smallest" currently. Tried removing apps, reinstalling and clearing data, no changes.
Issue was not present on my S8+.
Searching is very important sometimes while writing. It is very annoying minimize app -> open browser -> search & copy -> minimize browser -> again open app & paste. So we wish you will bring this feature very near future and SwiftKey will not disappoint us.
The whole long press and "do not predict again" thing doesn't work at all. There are numerous words I have tried to remove, but they come back immediately. For example, I'm trying to remove God with a capital G so it won't capitalize the G every time I type god. I type god and long press to remove it, then I immediately type god and boom, it auto capitalizes to God. What is the point of having "do not predict again" if it doesn't do anything! How can I ACTUALLY remove a word from my autocorrect!
Hey guys, I love SwiftKey and although I dabble with other third party keyboards, I always find myself coming back, so thank you!!
This round I hooked into the beta version, it seemed in the last update (dated 15 Feb 2018) we've added in the Genie Ball for emoji suggestions. As brilliant of a feature this is, I've yet to have it accurately predict my emoji, partly due to the fact that different people get different emojis, for example I send my girlfriend purple hearts, everyone else usually gets red.
At this point, my request/suggestion is that the default emoji tab be reverted to the recents as opposed to the suggestions. By all means keep the suggestions for the second tab, but I much prefer the recents to be the first tab.
On my Galaxy S8+, the emojis are really small in the emoji panel. Is there a way to change emoji size?
Thanks to everyone!
as a person which is using Czech language with a lot of extra letters ("ě, š, č, ř, ž, ý, á, í..."), the Incognito mode is perfect for me when I'm writing an SMS, because I can use normal letters ("e, s, c, r, z, y, a, i...") and my SMS is shorter and therefore cheaper.
However, I really don't like the incognito dark theme. Could it be removed and instead just left there my choosen theme? (I use the bright theme, which is perfect for me and I would appreciate to have this theme while incognito mode...)
I have English and Persian languages enabled in SwiftKey and a recent update has added a feature that combines the two languages into one keyboard. This doesn't work well at all! I can still get a Persian only keyboard but I can't do that for English anymore. Is there a way to disable this feature and get back separate keyboards again?
When I'm typing a name and need to use the possessive, I add an apostrophe and then an 's' - but when I hit the space key, SwiftKey (I use SwiftKey Beta) autocorrects by removing the 's' (leaving the apostrophe at the end of the name). It's a bit frustrating having to go back and add the 's' again, I'm hoping it can be fixed. Is anyone else having this problem as well?
I am unable to enter pin for WhatsApp and few other banking applications.
WhatsApp pin is a 6 digit number, I can enter the first 4 digits then when you try to enter the 5 digit it overrides the 4th digit and Keep doing this.
I am not aware of any workaround, I end up using Gboard for WhatsApp pin and in other apps.
Following proper format:
Why not Cloud save the Clipboard, it would be awesome and super useful.
Please do it as soon as possible!
I think I tried it all for SwiftKey not to capitalize my i's when writing in en/sr keyboard but no matter what I do mostly all my i's get capitalized after space and then I manually have to go back and redo them. I love using SwiftKey, it made my typing much faster and specially I love how I can mix and input some English words in Serbian and it automatically recognizes them, but it would be just perfect if there was an on/off switch for whether you want your i's capitalized.
Auto correct breaks up words requiring additional editing. Can you fix this, really annoying!
To replicate, switch off auto correct on space bar, then type edot. Then touch the word. This will place cursor in the middle of the word. Then select one of the suggestions from the top of the keyboard (Eg edit or editor) . That will put a suggested word followed by ot (eg edit ot). So the letters on the right from the cursor are kept unchanged and have to be deleted!? This is almost never what the user wants.
Currently I use Smart Keyboard, just because of the AutoText feature it has (= shortcut clips).
I would really like to use SwiftKey instead. And the addition of the clips is bringing it a step closer.
I have 3 feature requests:
1) Import / export
I would love the ability to be able to import (and export) the shortcuts / clips.
I want to use loads and would not like having to enter them manually one-by-one. So some import from file ability would be great. Maybe in json format or whatever.
Not being able to import is currently still a deal-breaker for me.
2) Rich text snippets
I would also like the ability to create rich text snippets. For instance to be able to use as email signatures and such.
You can copy rich text in Android and past it, where it keeps the formatting. So this should be possible I expect.
It would be awesome if we could create these in html format, which would get pasted as rich text when selected.
3) Add optional title/description field
When having long clips, the first few words will be displayed in the bar. Like: "It's a very long..."
This can be very undescriptive, especially when having multiple clips with the same starting words.
It would be nice to have an extra title/description field that would displayed in the bar instead. That field could get a character limit of - say - 20 character, so it will always get displayed in full (not truncated).
I have bee using swiftkey for years and there is this one bug that is annoying. Some words auto capitalize in the prediction in the middle of the sentence. I am using S7 edge. I have already cleared and deleted my account history and data to start anew. Despite this the bug is still coming back.
Please remove this new info icon and allow us to add seventh shortcut?
Since a few updates ago, there is now additional empty space below the spacebar and the last row of keys. Accidentally touching that space closes the keyboard while typing which is very time consuming because I have to keep manually opening the keyboard. I have tried re-sizing the keyboard but it won't allow me to extend into that empty space at the bottom. Please see two attached screenshots. Can you please fix this or allow us to eliminate that space?
I have seen several Forum entries and tens of 1 star reviews about this, so just to mention: The Backup and Sync is not working. It'd be nice if you'd, you now, react to any of the posts.
Another issue is the Web Login for both the forum and the SwiftKey Data page. I don't know if this is a recent development, but Chrome (both mobile and Desktop), and I'm pretty sure Firefox too, are blocking third party cookies. This seems to make it impossible to login with both Google or Microsoft (The Google button is grayed out and other login attempts result in an error that cookies are disabled). Virtually all other Websites I use seem to login with Google just fine, third party cookies enabled or not. For people not very tech experienced it will be impossible to login (maybe that's why I don't see hundreds of posts about the sync issue...).
