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.
Suggestions and feedback from new user0 Stimmen 16 Kommentare
I really appreciate details like adjusting sound and vibrate with really fine adjustment, which alternatives neglect.
Things I wish it had:
*hyphenation and colons, etc are added with a space making it difficult to add new hyphenated words.
*backspace has to be held down to delete wrong words. I realize this preference may vary but I've gotten used to a backspace resulting in immediate deletion of entire wrong word, not only by a long press.
*wish the top and bottom bars were smaller
*wish the top bar had more suggestions and or scrolled right
*when the accent and unusual characters menu is disabled I wish holding down a key double long still offered the accent and unusual characters which turn out to be really hard to access unless it's enabled. Alternatively one could long press the number option for additional key maps.
Overall a great feeling and functioning, intuitive, fun keyboard comparable to an apple product and that is a high complement.
Account won't sync across devices Beantwortet1 Stimme 16 Kommentare
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.

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?
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.16 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?
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.
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.

Key pop-up glitch2 Stimmen 14 Kommentare
This issue has been bugging me for quite some time.
It's simple, despite having "key pop-up" enabled in settings, sometimes, randomly, the pop-ups won't appear, and the key suddenly isn't "clickable" at all.
I recorded a video to show the issue: http://i.imgur.com/yrcXzck.gif (can't hotlink images here?)
I hope you can fix this, because it's annoying as hell.
Compact keyboard size too large on latest version as of 24.03.20171 Stimme 14 Kommentare
I have the paid version of SwiftKey keyboard. I just updated to the latest version today (24.03.2017) and noticed that the size of the smallest keyboard layout has been made much larger than what it used to be in the previous versions.
Please let me know if this is a bug which would be fixed very soon. Else, please provide me with the installation file of a previous version so that I can manually install it. Such a big size isn't productive for me because it simply takes up too much screen space. Thanks for your support.

Adding predictions Beantwortet4 Stimmen 14 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.
Thumb layout on landscape vs portrait Abgeschlossen0 Stimmen 14 Kommentare
Thumb layout for portrait view and regular on portrait view is what I prefer and works on regular but not beta. When I switch to portrait with thumb layout set on landscape it switches the layout of portrait and this sux. I love thumb layout in landscape and normal layout on portrait. On regular SwiftKey app this setting works fine but not properly on beta. Please fix this asap. New bug - Keyboard response is slower to type and the keyboard popup when tapping a entry field. Sometimes it does not pull up at all when tapping an entry field in certain apps as well.
