Searching is very important sometimes while writing. It is very annoying minimize app -> open browser -> search & copy -> minimize browser -> again open app & paste. So we wish you will bring this feature very near future and SwiftKey will not disappoint us.

Stop suggesting capital "i" when I'm typing in Swedish (where lowercase "i" is a common word)6 votes 2 comments
I have Swedish and English activated, because I tend to use both languages. But whenever I'm typing a sentence in Swedish and hitting the letter "i", Swiftkey changes that to "I" (capital i) instead, even though my intention was to write "i" (which is a really, really common word in Swedish, meaning "in"). I've tried multiple times to tell swiftkey not to suggest "I" at all, but it doesn't help.
I'm pretty sure the reason is that "I" is an English word, which for some reason takes precedence over the Swedish (equally common) word "i". Please, please, could you develop the software such that the English suggestion does not automatically takes precendence in such "ties", but let it be based on the language the previous word belonged to instead? That would help a lot!
[Feature Request] Trackpad in Spacebar (Android)6 votes 1 comment
This feature is requested a long time ago, and I need it. I want the possibility to move the cursor while swiping over the space bar. Arrow Keys are useless, because I always accidentally press on the left arrow key instead of the space bar. Add this, immediately, please!
Swedish Language/layout is forced to type capital "i" every time.6 votes 3 comments
When you're typing away with the Swedish language and layout, you're forced to go back and correct all the "i''s. Swiftkey autocorrects every single "i" to a "Capital I".
We never have or ever will use capital "i" mid sentences.
Please make it easier to switch Languages6 votes 2 comments
I use three languages on a daily basis.
Having three languages turned on at the same time doesn't work very well, so I have to keep switching one language off and another on multiple times a day, it's a 6 step process...
Please make it a lot easier to switch languages!
[Duplicate] Settings option to Turn off auto spaces6 votes 0 comments
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.
Turn off auto spaces:
This is a global issue across all devices!

Remove the incognito theme, please6 votes 9 comments
as a person which is using Czech language with a lot of extra letters ("ě, š, č, ř, ž, ý, á, í..."), the Incognito mode is perfect for me when I'm writing an SMS, because I can use normal letters ("e, s, c, r, z, y, a, i...") and my SMS is shorter and therefore cheaper.
However, I really don't like the incognito dark theme. Could it be removed and instead just left there my choosen theme? (I use the bright theme, which is perfect for me and I would appreciate to have this theme while incognito mode...)
Customize a key (feature request) - OR - Replace the Comma(,) key with Question Mark (?)6 votes 1 comment
I've been using Swiftkey for years now, having tried many many alternatives and finding it far superior than other options.
The only thing that is missing is the option to customize a key. For example, replace a symbol with another.
I have almost no use for the comma(,) and I use the question mark(?) all the time and the question mark needs two presses which is annoying, and really slows typing.
I am guessing Swiftkey has statistics of people's keypresses, they can check frequency. My guess is most people use the question mark a lot more than the comma, so why not make it default instead of the comma (if not adding the customize feature).
Many thanks for the best keyboard.
Bug in the text field when typing in Whatsapp6 votes 11 comments
Sometimes the text field does not update correctly when typing in Whatsapp. When the cursor goes to the second line, the text field is still only one line high, which means that I can't see all the typed text. Swiftkey and Whatsapp are updated, and this has happened with iOS 10 and 11.
I don't know, if the root cause is in Swiftkey or Whatsapp, but I will report this also to the Whatsapp support.
Voice to text button placement6 votes 3 comments
Hello, I'm a beta user, I don't bother with any other keyboard apps, this one is perfect. I do agree with all post that the voice to text button should be easier to access. Why can't you just create a custom keyboard (or two) 😀 with the key placement stand alone by itself...
Swiftkey errornously capitalize 'i' in swedish scentence6 votes 3 comments
I have the languages English (US) and Swedish enabled.
Whenever I type a Swedish sentence, swiftkey will capitalize the word 'i' (which means 'in' in Swedish).
Swiftkey should be able to determine that it is in a Swedish language context and NOT apply English language rules.
Why is SwiftKey on iOS has the input area non-scrollable6 votes 21 comments
Recently, on whatsapp I noticed that the SwiftKey on whatsapp is not scrollable while typing a paragraph.
Anyone with the same error? I being typing in whatsapp, and the input area doesn't expand to display the complete text I type into the whatsapp text input. It just display a single line as an input area without expanding to the complete textarea.
I have iPhone SE, on latest update of iOS.
Thanks for any help.

Support for a Thai keyboard language6 votes 4 comments
I know that the Android version has Thai keyboard for a while now so I am wondering why is it taking so long for the iOS version to come up with it. I've purchased the SwiftKey hoping to use it but without the multilingual input it is kinda been useless to me so far.
[Feature Request] Add Android Wear support6 votes 3 comments
As it is possible to use 3th party keyboards on Android Wear if would be really nice if you would make it available.
First of all there are only a few language supported on AW therefore a keyboard which support more would be really successful.
Secondly all the words and usage statistics which the keyboard learnt on my phone and tablet could sync make it easier to type on a small screen.
Please if it is possible, make it happen!

Galaxy S8 keyboard types sporadically6 votes 19 comments
I am a loyal user of the Swiftkey keyboard! Unfortunately the keyboard does not function properly on my new Samsung Galaxy S8. It jumps ahead a space mid-word then continues typing the word but at that point it is not a real word because it is the second half of the word. This is the case with about 50% of what I type.
Making a qwerty with Ç for portuguese6 votes 2 comments
I would like to ask you to make available a QWERTY layout for Portuguese with the letter Ç, just like there's a layout for spanish with Ñ. It's horrible having to long press C everytime we want to put an Ç. Ç is as important for portuguese just as ñ is to spanish. Please make it available.
[Feature Request] Additional layout for Lithuanian6 votes 11 comments
Hi Swiftkey team. I really like your keyboard and it's prediction system, but unfortunately can not use it because it does not have the most widely used in Lithuanian layout in Lithuania. It is QWERTY keyboard with Lithuanian symbols hidden number buttons:
1-ą;2-č;3-ę;4-ė;5-į;6-š;7-ų;8-ū; (9;0;- skipped) =-ž;
Would it be possible to include this layout to your App. Because I really want to use it but it is really uncomfortable with other keyboard.
Keyboard flickering and not registering for 4 seconds5 votes 8 commentsSwiftKey keyboard is flickering crazily. Every new occasion I need it. More and more. I've offloaded, uninstalled the app and it is back back on after a day or two. When I open anything to type, the keyboard appears and keeps vibrating / changes / flickers between two sizes, and it takes 2-4 seconds until it records the first key press. I'm using iPhone 13 Pro Max 256GB. It is so annoying that I keep uninstalling the app. However, everything else is so great in this app. Looks like a simple, performance thing. Please sort it out!!! Please.

Backspace key settings5 votes 3 comments
I've always used the Samsung keyboard before, but it lagged a lot on my new phone, so I was told to try another keyboard. Swiftkey has solved my lagging problem, or at least I don't notice it as much, but instead I find that I'd like to customize my backspace button. When I hold down the key, it deletes entire words instead of just letters, which really gets on my nerves when I make a typo in longer words (I type in Finnish too). Additionally, I'd really like to rearrange the "symbols" page (the one that pops up when you press the 123 button), though I suppose I'll grow used to the new order of keys in time if rearranging them isn't possible. But is there a way to change settings for the backspace key?

Reason why Swiftkey doesn't sync predictions... anymore...5 votes 2 comments
Listen, I know. Long story short, got Swiftkey on my old phone for years, now I have a new phone and yeah, it won't sync. After hours of research, I found out why... According to Wikipedia...
"In 2016 SwiftKey users began reporting personal details given by SwiftKey as suggested words to other users whom does not have previous connections, other issue includes foreign language and obscene words. SwiftKey responded by disabling cloud sync for word suggestions and released an update to mitigate the issue."
I think this is why. Practically, Swiftkey is now peer-pressured. I think they don't want that issue to happen again, so that's why they don't solve the prediction problem, because that problem solved a previous issue and they don't want such issues to happen again.
Let's hope that they let it return... someday...

Android 10: Swiftkey not available to my work profile?5 votes 1 comment
I use a work profile on my Pixel 2XL so I can access my work email (duh!), and until I upgraded to Android 10 I had my SwiftKey keyboard in both my personal and work profiles. But now that I've upgraded I've lost SwiftKey from my work profile. Argh! Can I get it back? It's a real pain to have different keyboards in each profile!
