Is a one-handed keyboard in your product roadmap? If so, what is a realistic timeline on when to expect it? I will return to using it at that point and it will be my default keyboard indefinitely.

Why STILL no Chinese for IOS??16 votes 10 comments
this situation is really ridiculous - why is Chinese input available for Android, but after all this time and so many iterations and versions, it is still not available for IOS? Please don't tell us to keep switching with the IOS keyboard, that is not a valid answer.
When will Chinese, and especially Pinyin input for Traditional Chinese, be added to this app?
Number row and other features missing on iOS16 votes 25 comments
I was so far a happy user of Switkey on Android, but I've been forced (for professional reasons) obliged to switch my phone to an iPhone...
So I was happy to see that Swiftkey was available on iOS as well, but when I tried to get the additional number row on top of my keyboard, I saw that this feature was missing on the iOS version such as some others.
Is there any roadmap for porting this feature on the iOS version, and more globally for aligning the two versions?
Deactivate auto spacing after inserting a period ('.')15 votes 19 comments
typing web addresses into the address bar of the browser always inserts an auto space after hitting the dot key. Thus I always have to correct by using backspace and type again.
Same problem with other situations, where I do not automatically need an auto space after the dot, e. g., when typing mail addresses.
there a way ariund it and have a setting option, allowing to deactivate auto spaces after a dot?
[Feature Request] Sync Clipboard between devices15 votes 11 comments
I have about 40 clipboard items pinned on one android device. Is there an easy way to get these on my other android devices so that I don't have to manually enter them all over again? Thanks.
Feature Request - Longpress and secondary keys15 votes 9 comments
Hi, I've just switched from Samsung 6 edge to iPhone 7 (so I can use Apple watch for swimming & fitness etc), but I am seriously missing my SwiftKey keyboard. My floral one (not so fussed about the floral bits) has dual purpose keys, ie. Each one doubles up as a symbol plus - a real must of you have longer nails like lots of us ladies do these days, it has the 4 cursor keys at the bottom of the screen plus all numbers across the top. Why can't I get it or anything similar on iPhone? Be so kind if anyone can help on this? It's driving me nuts! Many thanks Louise 😊
Dictionary won't sync14 votes 38 comments
I just switched from the Galaxy S10+ to the Note 10+ and my dictionary won't sync. I see all my words are in the cloud when I look at my account data. When I force a sync it says last synced a minute ago. This is the first time this has happened when I've switched phones. I've cleared the cache, forced sync, uninstalled, reinstalled, force sync and nothing has worked. Is this a bug or am I running into some issues?

Turning off Transliteration14 votes 8 comments
Please provide an option to turn off transliteration in Hindi because we don't always need it. Also transliteration causes huge delay when you type using swipe. When I turn off Hindi and then use swipe to type then there is no delay.
My saved words do not want to download after reinstalling the application.13 votes 22 comments
Hi, I had to reinstall the SwiftKey application again on my phone. Before that I made a synchronization of my saved words. After logging in to the SwiftKey account via the website, all my saved words are still on the server. The problem is that the same account is logged in to the application on an Android phone, but I can't to download my saved words back to my phone. I'm mad at it because my dictionary has several thousand words that I need to re-enter now. Any idea how to solve it?

Unable to sync learned words between Android devices12 votes 16 comments
Every time I re-install swiftkey on same device or install to a new android device my predicted words dissapeared! Even Backup/restore was ON on previous device and on the new device also, triggered sync many times on both devices!
This happened the second time for me between different devices, word backup never worked. What the cloud backup is for then? What is the purpose?
Before you say I turned off backup, my data exists in the cloud at data.swiftkey.com, but does not synced to any of new devices:
Personal Dictionary Not Working12 votes 15 comments
I've been using SwiftKey for several years with no issues at all, and have obviously built up quite a large personal dictionary. After factory resetting my Galaxy S8+ on Android 9.0, and re-installing SwiftKey, predictions from my personal dictionary so not come up anymore. I have tried all the steps on the troubleshooting guides on this website and have tried all the steps from other similar posts with no success. Are there any other steps I can try? This app has been so essential to me for many many years now and I can't even imagine losing all of the data that has been built up throughout the years.
Auto Space after Punctuation12 votes 4 comments
How about adding an option to toggle auto space on/off after punctuation.
It's a pain having to backspace to remove an unwanted space.
Cut Copy Paste SelectAll Shortcuts12 votes 11 comments
Add this function of cut copy paste and select-all by sliding the finger from numberkey to X, C, V and A respectively.
This would be really really helpful and would be the best update till date that saves a lot of time of the user.
Release the updates as soon as possible.

Bing Search Feature gone, but why?11 votes 2 commentsEveryone is complaining about how the Bing Search feature on the keyboard has been removed, and I agree as I don't see why it needed to go. Since the replies to each post is vague and doesn't actually say why the feature wasn't removed, I want to ask for everyone: Why is it gone? What led the developers to decide that it needed to go?

Can voice to text be changed to Cortana?11 votes 3 comments
Is there any way to change the voice to text engine in Android? I would prefer to use Cortana, since I find Cortana's accuracy very good, but there does not seem to be a way to do it.
Search for emoji11 votes 5 comments
A feature that I really miss from other keyboards (such as Gboard) is the ability to search emojis. I really love this feature and I think its better than emoji prediction. Please add this is a close future update!
Yes, the lack of this feature would be enough to make me switch keyboards, but I really like Swiftkey.
Disabling Multiple Languages in Autocorrect11 votes 5 comments
I use SwiftKey (the paid version) with English and my native language, Malayalam. My language settings are as in the screenshot below.
My phone is primarily for work use, so most of my keypad usage is to type out professional emails, Slack messages, Asana updates etc. and the only acceptable language for such communications is English. I use Malayalam occasionally on certain WhatsApp groups; where I know all members are capable of reading and understanding the language. In earlier versions of SwiftKey switching between these was quick and easy via the spacebar, and the product worked very well for my requirements.
But of late, I see that SwiftKey is predicting words in Malayalam when I'm typing in English and worse still, these words are offered as the middle prediction:
This is incredibly annoying; and I have searched all over the place - but it seems like there is no way to disable this behaviour. At the moment I have removed Malayalam from SwiftKey completely because this "feature" is interfering in my work. My questions:
1. Is it true that I cannot disable this feature?
2. Is there a way I can downgrade to a version of SwiftKey that did not have this feature?
3. Is there any plans for adding a configuration option to disable this feature? If yes when will that come out?
Swiftkey, please stop ignoring your community: Prediction is horrible. Add dictionary separation w/mult languages, please!11 votes 14 comments
First, I noticed prediction lags. A lot. Especially if you type fast.
Now, please help me with this: 1. I don't use pinyin (Chinese input). I don't even have it enabled as pinyin. I use a different typing system (zhuyin system) and yet Swiftkey still predicts pinyin. But why? Why am I forced into this option? This leads to the next problem: Swiftkey likes to predict English words like "uber" into "uber" with an umlaut. This is equally annoying because the English word is not the same as the German word.
2. There's no way to tell where some special letters or modifiers are. For example, the German "ß?" Go ahead and guess where it's found without checking EVERY SINGLE KEY on the keyboard. And the Russian keyboard? I don't even want to start.
For a keyboard that is supposed to be convenient, it, somehow, manages to force you into multilingualism. What if I don't want to, though? I want to type in one language at a time for the sake of accuracy. This prediction really... kills.

Export Data and Reload to SwiftKey app10 votes 5 commentsHello I'm not able to sync my old saved words on my new phone! I logged in on SwiftKey online and saw all my data. There is an export button. I was able to export all data. Is there a way to import all data back on SwiftKey app? Please fix this big problem. The whole point of the app was to store words and its not doing that when transferring from one phone to another :( please provide an alternative solution instead of blaming Google. I'm so frustrated.
Android Sync Issue (Not Working) - Samsung Galaxy10 votes 7 comments
So, I've had SwiftKey for many, many years and been through a huge number of phones, but never had this issue.
I have a few devices - one of them being an iPhone, the other being a Samsung.
I recently purchased a new Samsung (S9), and it seems although it shows the sync as being connected, it doesn't 'remember' any of the many words I have on there. It's an issue which I've never had.
I've deleted, reinstalled, clicked sync on both sides, ensured it's logged in etc. No luck.
I have a SwiftKey account for my synchronising. In the most recent update of iOS SwiftKey, it no longer seems to be an option, to log-in with a SwiftKey account, but only with Facebook, Microsoft, Google or Apple. Could this be it?
Any idea what it could be?

Just installed SwiftKey on my new mobile. when I want to login with my Google account (button sign in with Google) it's loading for hours (I see the loading circle on a white background).
Phone: Galaxy S9, Android 9.0 (two days before I had the android version before and had the same problem) and yes, I installed and deleted it meanwhile more times.
