    The reason we require you to log in in order to download themes dates back to when themes were purchasable. To help address the issue of users having missing themes, we asked them to log in with a Google account they had associated with the Play Store.

    While all of the themes are now marked as "free," we don't have word on if/how things will change in this regard.

    They've not done, what "we" asked them for. I didn't ask SwiftKey to turn into a keylogger and steal all my data. At the time, I bought the app, Holo was a part of it (without login). I just wanted, what I have paid for.

    If you don't care about your privacy and your data, you don't have to write here usles posts. I know, how dangerous a keylogger can be, especially if the maintainer is in a foreign country. If you belive, SwiftKey will only sync (and store) your type methods andpredictions, you are naive. They have to make profit, and you can't make profit by giving apps for free. You are paying with your private and personal data. This data is much more valuably then selling the app for a few bucks. So they switched their business model in the past.

    If you don't know, how dangerous private data can be or how it can be used agains you, just google it. The history of some countries all over the wold shows it. If you think, you have noting to hide, then you lie yourself.

    But all this is another discussion. I just don't want to login and send all my typings to SwiftKey, but I want to use Holo, as I could do that, as I bought the app. SwiftKey simply take away a function I have paid for.

    I'm stick in version 6.5.9.21 because is the last version that allowed themes without an account (keylogger, spying, etc.)

    Swiftkey is no more an option if needs an forces and account. NEVER USE ANY APP that needs an account in order to run or to be always connected.

    Bad move. Anything that Microsoft touches, destroys it.

    Now that SwiftKey simply away the function I have paid for, how to reclaim my money?

    Does anyone know another keyboard program to replace Swiftkey that does not require an account?
