When using Force Touch to move the cursor around you can only move it within the current line. If you want to move it to another line you have to touch that line first with your finger then you can use Force touch to move around in that line.

Is there a button for voice to text? That's the only thing I'm finding disappointing with my new keyboard, no VTTM.
SwiftKey flicker/lag3 votes 1 comment
Since a few updates SwiftKey started to flicker, i.e. when I pick the text input area in an app (doesn't matter which one, same behaviour all across the board) SwiftKey shows up, quickly vanishes and then shows up again. If I start typing before it vanishes nothing happens until it reappears. That's annoying, but I can stand it if it weren't for..
Sometimes SwiftKey doesn't reappear, but the standard iOS keyboard. So I have to manually switch keyboard again.
Quite annoying, frankly. A fix, please?

New Phone, text predict / auto correct is not the same anymore.0 votes 0 comments
I recently changed phones from an iPhone 7+ to a iPhone X
I have been using Swiftkey for many years throughout different phones (each year iphone upgrade)
This year I ran across an issue where the words I normally predict is not on my iPhone X anymore.
If you look at the pictures on the iPhone 7, you can tell that the words that are usually predicted is not on the iPhone X
I have even tried to connect the accounts and its still not there.
When I used to do iCloud Backup from old phone to new phone, I dont even have to sign in and get all the same text predictions!
I have attached some screenshots :)
Why is Swiftkey so much worse on iOS compared to Android16 votes 16 comments
I've been using Swiftkey on Android since they days when you had to pay for it. Recently my job forced me to switch over to an iphone. The difference between the 2 versions is tremendous. Autocorrect works a lot more poorly but the main gripe I have is that you can't hold down a letter key to get every accent mark associated with it. Is there a reason for this? I continue to still use swiftkey since I'm used to the punctuation placement, but just seems weird that it works so poorly in iOS

Photo theme bugs0 votes 1 comment
Hi! Very excited about the new custom photo theme! Although I'm a little confused.
The key pop-up color doesn't change anything; what is it meant to do?
Also, the background brightness adjusts with light bubbles behind the letters until you slide the button to about the 80% mark on the right side and then the bubbles suddenly turn dark. Seems like a bug.
I would like the option to not have any background bubbles at all, like the high contrast theme.
I'm using iOS 11.1 with an iPhone 8 if that helps.
You're getting there... it's almost the perfect keyboard!

Marathi is unavailable on iPAD Answered1 vote 3 comments
I use Marathi keyboard on my Sony Android phone. It’s wonderful.
But I feel very sorry that my iPAD, on which I write too much in Marathi, is not so supported.
May I know when this facility would be made available for iOS?
For the love of god, fast commas please! Answered6 votes 2 comments
I have been using SwiftKey on Android for years, switched to iPhone a few days ago. Very unhappy with the ways comma work here. To insert a comma and a space after it, I have to hit the "special symbols" button, then comma, and then the space bar. Alternatively, I have to press and hold the "." key, then move to the comma, then hit space. That is 3 keystrokes, whereas in Android it only took one (you have the comma button on the default keyboard to the left of the space bar, and an empty space is automatically added once you hit it). Likewise, it is also annoying that no space is added after hitting the "." button, however at least this can be fixed by using a double-tap on the space bar to create the dot instead.
I understand SwiftKey is trying to imitate the way the native iOS keyboard works in this regard, but frankly, that setup is just horrible, so please at least give us the option to customize. A comma is a button that is too frequently required not to be on the main keyboard, and in at least 90% of cases, when you type a comma, you want an empty space behind it, so that really should be automatic.
Haptic Feedback4 votes 4 comments
I don't understand how to enable Haptic feedback in SwiftKey. The support article says
Opening the emoji panel, long-pressing the emoji/globe key,
and activating the 'emoji bomb' will all trigger small vibrations.
But i don't see an "Emoji Bomb" in the emoji panel.

Text selection by swipe? Answered0 votes 1 comment
I am used to keyboards that use some sort of swipe-move to navigate and select text, I would never go back to selecting text inside the text again the old way.
I find swiftkey suuuper nice, but I am disapointed that there is no smart way of selecting or navigating?
Such as: swipe along the spacebar (like Tempest keyboard) or starting on a certain key and then swiping, or even swiping in the suggestion boxes.
I also cant get arrows to work, even though some posts suggests this would be possible. Again, not backspace, arrows to navigate inside the text.
I am on an iphone 6, so I don't have access to keyboard touch pad, does that work on newer phones for swiftkey?
Thanks, you put a lot of work in to this! (please put a liiitle bit more for me!)
Ios 11.0.3 breaks swiftkey1 vote 4 comments

Installation fails on iPad0 votes 0 comments
I have an iPad Pro running iOS v11.0.3. The installation fails when I try to run the app. I’m able to download it from the App Store. Swiftkey shows up in the Keyboards section of iOS’s Settings, and I can turn it on and allow full access. However, when I launch the Swiftkey app, I get a momentary splash screen with the logo and then the screen goes completely white and stops. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Swiftkey app a few times, and I’ve “rebooted” my iPad in between. Still can’t get it to work. (NOTE: I’m able to install it on my iPhone 7 Plus without any problems.)
Has anybody incountered this problem, and is there a workaround? Any help is much appreciated.
UPDATE: I was able to fix the problem by detaching Apple’s physical foldable keyboard/cover (whatever they call it), and that seemed to do the trick. Apparently, Swiftkey doesn’t like when it’s attached during installation. Appears not to be a problem attaching and using it after installation completes.
SwiftKey IOS keys size0 votes 0 comments
Is there any way that I can change size of SwiftKey keyboard on IOS 11 or even makes space between keys bigger ?
Multiple iOS 11 apps don’t work well0 votes 6 comments
Using the 3D Touch cursor in the DayOne app doesn't really work: the cursor disappears (who makes it useless) or is very slow. Whzt happens is that SwiftKey wastes time trying to predict or correct for each movement of the cursor, instead of switching this off during movement.
Another big problem is with the text entry on boardgamegeek.com, when adding a game to one's collection (requires registration): the web widget used reacts badly to SwiftKey's corrections, with a tendency to swap a word and the space that precedes it. More generally SwiftKey is confused about where it is in the text: it shows an incorrect word context (that does not represent the actual position of the cursor but something close instead). My guess is that this has something to do with registering the cursor position correctly, even when it moves or deletes characters.

Please add option to show a number row above the letters. Please add options for an easily accessible comma and question mark, such as long press on a letter or assigning those punctuation marks to the buttons to the left and right of the space bar. Thank you.

Feature Request - Turn on/off Flow for specific languages0 votes 3 comments
Update - submitted through Feature Request option, please disregard.
I use two languages on my keyboard, and English is used much more frequently. It would be very handy if I could turn flow off for my second language as my keyboard often assumes I'm using flow for this language after using shorthand/single letter words like "u", "a" or "I". Since it's a second language, I'm mostly comfortable with using the keyboard without flow anyway. I would assume others may also have this issue?

Waiting for the Korean support in ios for an incredibly longtime is really frustrating. I do not understand how come the Android version has Korean while ios version does not. Is it so because your engineers are lazy? There are already many requests for Korean ios in the forum.
Can you please add Korean?
