After much searching I found swift key was crashing my android phone A5 16 . Restarting became a problem and sometimes took 20 minutes to allow the keyboards to appear before retyping password. There doesn't seem to be any workaround for this so I'm deleting swift key. Shame as it seemed quite good.

Not what I hoped for0 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
I've been using Swype + Dragon for some years now. I noticed there are 100 times more downloads of Swiftkey so I decided to see what I might be missing.
The answer, as it turns out, is not much. There are differences, but they all are negatives for me. Chief amongst these is the inability to delete a freshly swiped word by pressing backspace without long holding. Seems like a small thing but it really adds up in terms of time + frustration.
Then there is the inability to turn off space following a period. Again, doesn't seem like a big deal, until you swipe a URL which absolutely cannot have spaces of any kind, but has at least a period or two.
Lastly, the usability deal breaker. SwiftKey trails are like fat ugly spray paint marks smeared across the keyboard. Swype offers tidy trails that don't distract or obscure.
I imagine all of these things could be fixed, but what does Swift offer that I don't already get in Swype? Nothing as far as I can tell.
One thing I get with Swype that I'm not getting with Swift is rapid adaptative learning. I absolutely refuse to grant total strangers like Swift access to my texts and emails even for Big Data purposes, even those that somehow might benefit me. I wouldn't allow Swype to do such things either, but then it's never asked me to. I got quality results from Swype almost immediately without them, and of course accuracy has improved over time as I would expect. Unfortunately I can't say the same for Swift, which regularly comes up with howlers as primary suggestions.
While we're on the issue of security. I want an option to create a unique logon. Swype offers that. Swift does not, so I had to provide my Google account. Not happy about that AT ALL. In retrospect, I wish I hadn't. Which means I wished I'd never tried Swift in the first place. Bad news for Swift!
So off Swift goes. I'll keep it in mind for the future, but ONLY if you let me create a unique account first. That's for sure, no matter what Swift manages to offer.

Predictions0 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
SwiftKey always suggests plural forms of words first like "bats" instead of "bat" or it will suggest the word with ing at the end like "touching" instead of "touch"! Usually the root word is nowhere to be found in the suggestions. This occurs constantly so it can not be that it learned all these words from me. Extremely frustrating!

SwiftKey will not learn new words! Perfect example ; it will not learn LOL with all caps! It always suggests it as Lol. I delete the suggestion then click on the all capital version but it still reverts to the lower case suggestion.
[Feature Request] Improve Predictions With Substitution List1 Stimme 1 Kommentar
Hi all -
I remain frustrated by behavior I see in all predictive keyboards including SwiftKey when using Flow/Swiping input and I would love it if you improve on this issue.
Some common words consistently get predicted wrong. ("and", "for", "work", etc), even if I remove the wrongly predicted word from my personal vocabulary (which isn't always effective anyway, because I still need the "wrong" word in other contexts).
I would like to see either
1. a mechanism for managing substitution preferences (for instance, I'd like to say that if "fur" is predicted, I want "for" to be the substitution. I could still type "fur" by tapping each letter, but Flow should default to use my preferred substitutions.
2. a way for SwiftKey to learn by observing how frequently I correct one predicted word to another an start using my correction by default going forward.
It really cuts down on the efficiency of Flow if I have to go back and correct so many words in my sentence or watch word by word as I am flowing.
SwiftKey is one of the best implementations (I have tried so many and always come back to SwiftKey), but this feature would make it even better.
Please consider this feature and/or teach me how I can improve using existing functionality (and FYI, I am using the latest Android SwiftKey Beta)

When the number row is enabled, I would like all the shift characters to match a normal computer keyboard. Then I don't have to hunt for all the special characters which is the one thing I greatly dislike about SwiftKey.
The menu key (3 stripes) should be a long-press or positioned somewhere else0 Stimmen 1 Kommentar
Hey guys. The menu key (hambúrguer menu, 3 tripés) key should be a long-press or maybe be put somewhere else. I constantly accidentally click it when I want to hit the Q key. When I am typing fast, I happens constantly that I accidentally change the theme, or accidentally insert a clipboard. Please, consider this improvement.

Show Labesl ALWAYS in CAPs0 Stimmen 1 Kommentar
Hi all,Is it possible to display labels on SwiftKeykeys ALWAYS in CAPs, exactly like on our favorites PC keyboards, e.g. even you need to type lower "a" you will still push key with the "A" label on it. ** and some color accent on shift key (arrow) will work to indicate case.This is a big thing to improve visibility if your vision is not perfect, that jumping between Low-Caps case on labels is bad for my eyes and brain, most people already have recorded in their hippocampus CAPS patterns for letters after using physical keyboards at work.Looks like this easy to make, just need to kill something, not create anything new. is that possible !!!?????I checked bunch of other products and none of them have this feature, who will be first !!!???? It's 2018 outside !!!!Tx all. Tx all VIP/Moderators, Your support is perfect !Tx V
Need to have a backslash key0 Stimmen 2 Kommentare
DOS file path requires a backslash character. The need for this doesn't come up often, but it does occasionally, e.g., editing an m3u playlist file on OneDrive or on a local network drive. On a computer keyboard, it is on the same key as the vertical bar, which you do have above the r key. You could add the Backslash as a second choice there.

Keyboard lags when I press hamburger menu0 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
I have Xiaomi Mi Max 2 (Snap 625, 4GB RAM, 64GB ROM) and my mother has Huawei P10 (Kirin 960/Mali-G71 MP8, 4GB RAM, 64GB ROM), both Full HD.
The problem is keyboard drops framerate to around 10 fps when I press hamburger menu: video. On mother's phone same keyboard with same version works smooth as it should.
How to fix that problem? Keyboard works perfectly, but that lag annoys me.

Recent Update Leading to Typos?0 Stimmen 1 Kommentar
I've used SwiftKey as an extremely satisfied user for years. Within the most recent month or two, though, I've been having TONS of typos. For example...
An allergic tool familiar night, but it'll definitely be finished next week timepiece immediately up there.
Should read: An all too familiar night, but it'll definitely be finished next week (unsure) (unsure) up there.
Sometimes the app thinks I'm selecting the word on the right when I'm really trying to select the word in the middle. Other times the app thinks I'm selecting the word twice and inserting the word I want PLUS the next suggestion when I'm really just trying to select the word I see. It basically thinks I'm double-tapping instead of single tapping.
I've NEVER had these issues until the last month or two, and it's happening all the time now. It's getting to the point that it's unusable. Is there a way to go back to a previous version? Or is this a known issue with a recent update and is it planned on being addressed? I'm using the same phone, same everything except suddenly I'm getting all these typos! I'm using the OnePlus Two, if that matters.

Case sensitive layout.0 Stimmen 1 Kommentar
Hi guys anyone know how to enable the case sensitive layout? That's when you are capital letters are always on but you are actually typing with normal small letters. I have quite big tumbs and is really difficult for me to type when letters are that small. I believe there is a keyboard called fleksy which is with this feature but the predictions are crap I prefer SwiftKey. Thanks in advance

I am tired of Obama and Clinton predictions!0 Stimmen 0 Kommentare
It doesn't matter how many times I remove the words "Obama" or "Clinton" from my auto corretion dictionary these words continue to appear with only the first letter being typed. I personally find this annoying especially when I am forced to type most of the word *Trump" which I use several times every day. What is up with this?

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.

SwiftKey inserts unexpected unicode 8203 character1 Stimme 0 Kommentare
I am using SwiftKey Beta keyboard (Android) V188.8.131.52
I found that it inserts unicode 8203 character (Unicode Character 'ZERO WIDTH SPACE' (U+200B)) between word in Thai language
If I type "ลมปราณภูตอุดร", I will get "ลมปราณ​ภูต​อุดร" (in HTML escape format).
The text displays correctly but the problems are
1. If I use it as game id, my id cannot be found by my friends when they search for it but type it with different keyboard (not SwiftKey)
2. Some app doesn't accept that character, and return error. I found this problem in some Thai bank apps.

Can you remove Farsi language from all Latin keyboards?0 Stimmen 1 Kommentar
Up until a month ago when I updated SwiftKey and it's databases, everything was fine: I could use Swedish keyboard to type English or Swedish and Farsi had its own keyboard. Now Farsi is added to all languages so that when fir example I'm typing something in English, text predictions in Farsi /فارسی will pop up. This is very annoying as when I am typing in English I do not wish to type in Farsi!
At the moment I have Farsi/English, Farsi/Svenska (Swedish) and Farsi (فارسی) when I'm typing. I would like Farsi to not be added to English or Swedish keyboards. How do I do that? While I can choose different keyboard styles for English and Swedish (Qwerty, Azerty etc), Farsi فارسی has no option.
This happened with the latest update and it broke the functionality of SwiftKey for me. Please help!
