    As of right now, not to my knowledge. The two keyboards are meant to behave similarly in regards to their prediction quality and overall functionality, the level of customization of layout at the current time is an Android specific function, simply because iOS users are both used to a specific format (iOS stock) and a similar functionality making SwiftKey and excellent choice for third party keyboard selection due to the much greater autocorrect and prediction technology. As a cross platform user I was hoping to see these additions myself, but as long as SwiftKey has been on iOS, they've not shown any signs of changing that layout option restriction. They have started implementing 3D Touch which has been nice while not having access to my arrow keys though!

    The same here.

    Maybe the company have their metrics but not having the numbers row for iPhone adds extra work at typing loosing the purpose of the keyboard that is to type faster.

    You can say that iPhone users are used to not having the numbers row but have the SwiftKey team think about that it is because there is no option?

    Very disappointed that it is not the same in both platforms.

    I am an Android user who has just received my first iPhone, after having to use a Windows phone for a few months, and excitedly loaded SwiftKey - to find there is no option to have a number row! Nor is there any special characters available via a long press. Extremely, utterly, completely disappointed, SwiftKey. This was one of the reasons I was 'ok' to go with an iPhone for the first time. I know it's a first world problem, but having to toggle between alpha and numerical keyboards is ridiculous.

    where is the Swiftkey customer care?

    I see complaints (same I have) but no answer from Swiftkey.

    Honestly SwiftKey, this problem is so obvious to those of us who have used Android for any length of time. On most programs, the Android version gets the short end of the stick. For SwiftKey, it's iOS. You need to fix these glaring problems:

    1. NUMBER ROW

    2. going back and correcting a word works ten times better in Android

    3. Punctuation doesn't act the same. The auto spacing is totally broken on iOS.

    It's so different and so weird that I usually revert back to the stock iOS keyboard. At least it's predictable.

    Seems like the iOS version is very low priority for SwiftKey.

    Nobody from the support team have give us an update/excuse of why the tool is not the same in iOS.

    I guess I'm going to try another keyboards and let you know. Also if you find a good one please share it here.

    Thanks

    Advise for the support team: I know you are not developers but you are the ones who deal with users everyday, so you should have a voice inside the team who evaluates new features for the application, is the only way to actually deliver value to users an enhance the product.

    From the previous posts it sounds like the number row for ios isn't a priority for SwiftKey. I think it was amazing on android but so disappointed after switching to Apple. I hope that SwiftKey does it soon but does anyone know of an alternative keyboard with same predictive features. There must be one I don't want to be at the mercy of SwiftKey! Thanks for any advice.

    Can we have the choice to add or remove number row and other keys available to android SwiftKey. It's really frustrating when you switch from android and find out that those options are not available

    Similar to some users above, I'm an android SwiftKey user for years, and recently it has been necessary to carry a secondary phone (only iPhones available) for work.

    I thought I could easily adjust to typing on the iPhone by installing SwiftKey.

    Disappointingly, almost everything that makes SwiftKey good on Android, is not on IOS. Swipe left to erase, number row (or press and hold for numbers), comma key on the layout, press and hold for symbols...

    Everything has been dumbed down!

    I switched to TouchPal is not the same but has the numbers row and the sliding functionality.

    Shame on you SwiftKey.

    Just wanted to add my voice echoing the many expressions of disappointment. ... not to mention bafflement, given how many gazillion iPhones ther are in use.

    Thanks for the TouchPal tip, Gleidy Mendoza. Works a treat.

    Just installed TouchPal and it's great to have the number row although SwiftKey is superior for changing languages.  But I'll certainly use the TouchPal keyboard when I'm having to type a lot of numbers.  And great for passwords which are simple exasperating using SwiftKey.

    This has nothing to do with SwiftKey. This is all about Apple's ridiculous philosophy of "my way or the highway". Same thing happens with web browsers on IOS and any other feature that third parties may try to improve on. It's 2017 and Apple has already achieved supremacy in the mobile phone world, and they have more money than God. I think is time to relax the rules even just a bit....

    Presumably a lack of variability from Apple's end but another reason I wish my employer had issued a  decent phone instead of these worm ridden apples.

    (sent from my personal android phone because, well why use the other crap more than I have to).

    Just another voice in..I'm with swiftkey till the end on Android platform,but I'm definitely disappointed in swiftkey on iOS personally I'm assuming they don't have a choice unless they want to fight up against the ever so strict apple forces. APPLE REALLY BLOWS! Thank god this ipad is temporarily,

    Just another voice on this.

    I've been using Swiftkey for Android for years.  Moved to an iPhone and expected the same great keyboard.  Unfortunately this is no better than the stock iPhone keyboard so I will be going back to it.  Disappointed!

    I agree with the users above. After years using SwiftKey for Android on multiple devices from various brands (SwiftKey always the first app I install on a new device) was excited to find SwiftKey for iPad at first but then greatly disappointed by the missing features:

    1) Number row

    2) Arrows

    3) Comma spacing

    4) Word autocomplete behviour

    Also, it turned out that swiftkey usage stats do not sync between devices although i log in the same account on both.

    Please, add these features, or I'll have to look for a better iOS keyboard.

    Well, at this point complaining is just a waste of time?

    I came from an Android device and all features described are really useful.

    But the first post was more than one year ago. So arrow keys and numbers line won't be available?

    Thanks!

    I echo the above and it is my biggest gripe with swift key. I would also like the option of a number keyboard like the phone dialling one.

    So just set up SwiftKey on my iPad, and even the default ipad keyboard got something similar to the hold down option, pls add the hold down option, I can't live without multi-language so I have to deal with it but pls. And maybe that splits the keyboard in two so I can type with my thumbs. And while we are at it, also add dvorak layout.

    Same here.


    I moved from Android to iOS and wanted to continue using SwiftKey. But I'm really missing the Number row.

    In contrast, this Feature is available in GBoard for iOS (which may be and alternative).
    So this requirement must technically be possible in general.

    There is no need for other people to keep posting "me too!".   We know it's an issue across the board.   Anyway, I emailed SwiftKey support about this, and they actually replied to me (did anyone actually tried this, or do they just like to complain on boards?). 

    Their reply was that it was a limitation from ios. They cannot implement the features from the Android version due to Apple's restrictions.

    Antonio this post has been active for over two years, and "Swiftkey Support" if it exists, hasn't even bothered to say "boo" to all these questions. We are on "swiftkey.com", for crying out loud.

    The guy right above you confirmed that Gboard already has numbers. I just installed it, and it has the numbers printed on the top line of letters. You hold down the key and the number pops up. Not quite a "number row", but better than not having it. Who knows what "Apple restrictions" there are. Sounds like a canned excuse to me.

    Honestly I removed Swiftkey from all three of my iOS devices finally. The features such as prediction degraded, the keyboard slowed down the system, and they are totally non-responsive to things like this.
