Every time I use voice to text on any iOS app, SwiftKey's app opens itself and stays open. It is quite annoying.

Decimal pad not respecting regional setting for comma/dot1 vote 1 comment
For the iOS version 2.8.2 of Swiftkey, it seems that the numeric keypad dot not respect the comma/dot regonal setting of the iOS device, and always shows the dot, even if the language/regional setting of the iOS device specifies a comma as decimal separator. I can long hold the dot to get the comma, but I would like the same option as on the native IOS, that the regional setting defines what the first option is.
Feature Requests for iOS - Make SwiftKey as Great as on Android!15 votes 5 comments
Hi Swiftkey Team,
i just switched from Android to iOS and the iOS Stock Keyboard is horrible. I've been using Swiftkey for years (also bought it long time ago) and the usability on Android is awesome :)
When i decided to switch to iOS I was glad to know that swiftkey is available for iOS as well. Sadly the User Experience on iOS is very poor in comparison to your Android Version.
If you could implement the following things, it would make the user experience a lot better:
- Special Characters as second Option for normal characters (best would be the same order as on android)
- seperate comma key
- enhanced QWERTZ Layout with dedicated umlaut keys (öäü)
- Adjustment of longpress duration
- 3D Touch for removel of whole words
- cursor selection through long press on space key
And I would REALLY Love to have the "Classic Dark" Theme back. I found it very helpfull that not every key has its own border, but the keyboard layout is kind of rastered.
Please think about the mentioned things. I am sure many people would love it!
Thank you and Greetings from Germany,
Comment faire apparaître des caractères spéciaux au-dessus de chaque lettre alphabétique?0 votes 0 comments
Je viens de passer d’un Smartphone Android à un iPhone SE 2020 iOS 12, mais je n’arrive pas à configurer mon clavier Swiftkey de façon à faire apparaitre les caractères spéciaux au-dessus de chaque lettre alphabétique comme je le faisais sur Android..
J’arrive à faire apparaitre uniquement les chiffres au-dessus de la 1re ligne alphabétique. Je sais que les caractères spéciaux sont aussi accessibles en appuyant sur la touche "123" puis sur la touche "+=#" si je veux utiliser le tiret du bas "_" par exemple mais ce n'est vraiment pas pratique, alors que sur mon clavier Swiftkey Android, I just have to stay and press sur la touche "W" pour faire le tiret du bas "_" !
Pouvez-vous m’aider à configurer mon clavier Swiftkey sur mon iPhone SE 2020 iOS 12 comme sur mon Android s’il vous plait.
Je vous place une capture d’écran du clavier Swiftkey de mon Android sur laquel les caractères spéciaux au-dessus des lettres que je veux faire apparaitre sur mon clavier Swiftkey d’iPhone sont encadrés en rouge.

Emoji Search is terrible0 votes 0 comments
I'm not sure if anyone else is having this frustration, but SwiftKey almost never finds the emoji I'm looking for when I try to search. Examples: try "yawn" 🥱 or "mask" 😷

Where does SwiftKey learn its dictionary from?0 votes 0 commentsI just tried to type the word yesterday via gesture and it came out as UTStarcom. Now I have never typed that word in my life, it is not in the English dictionary, and its Wikipedia entry is only like 2 paragraphs long. Where did this come from??? Is there a way to get rid of these types of autocorrects?
Cursor Control Almost Never Activates-1 votes 0 comments
Hi, long-time Android Swiftkey user that switched to iPhone a year ago (11 Pro Max). Was thrilled when cursor control was added in, but ever since the addition, I've never gotten it to activate predictably. If I hold spacebar before typing any text, it activates properly. If I type a few characters, probably all good. But usually once I enter a word or two, a long-press does nothing. Haven't been able to find any info online about this, and none of the recent patches have changed anything. Any suggestions?
PS: I only have 1 language selected, and I have reinstalled multiple times.
Update: Upon further experimenting, it seems that hitting backspace before holding spacebar always makes it work. Hmm...
[Feature request] Armenian keyboard support in iOS and keyboard layout options for Armenian language in Android2 votes 2 comments
Swiftkey, while being a superb app (using both on iOS and Android), does not support my native Armenian on iOS and the keyboard layout options on Android are quite limited.
The major keyboard layouts for Armenian language are Armenian Eastern, Armenian Western and Armenian Phonetic.
Armenian Eastern (used by people in Republic of Armenia):
Armenian Western (used by people in Armenian diaspora):
Armenian Phonetic (used by people lacking computer skills and migrating from the old KDWin software for Windows PC):
I would be very thankful if you implemented these options in the iOS and Android versions of the app. Thank you in advance.
BÉPO, please BÉPO1 vote 0 comments
Why the IOs version is so below the Android version ???
I NEED the BÉPO layout. It is my keyboard since so many years, Azerty has become a no-brainier for me.
I very happily use Swifkey on android since 2012 and now that I have the newest Ipad pro, I have to switch to en expansive low quality app in order to have my good ergonomic, scientifically engineered layout.
How difficult could it be to add it on the IOs version ?
Thank you very much for considering it.
Support for Curved Keyboards4 votes 2 comments
Given that WordFlow has now been shut down in favor of SwiftKey. It would be nice to have the curved keyboard option available in SwiftKey for one handed (right or left) operation.
Thanks for considering this feature!
Punctuation key0 votes 1 comment
I have swiftkey version 2.7.8 on iPhone (ios 13.5) and ipad (ipados 13.5).
On iPhone the layout features a multipurpose punctuation key to the right of the space bar, which I find very useful. On the ipad this position is given to a second key to switch to numeric keyboard, which I do not need. How can I get the multipurpose punctuation key on ipad?
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.
I am using an iPhone 8 with iOS 11
Support for german language and layout1 vote 1 comment
I realy like SwiftKey.
It is one of the best.
I am not always typing in english somewhere on the internet, i also write texts. In german.
And for german. SwiftKey right out sucks.
It is the worst thing i ever saw.
1) It has not german layout at all.
Your popover selection window is ... horrible ... compared to real keys.
Let me show:
This is from the Apple keyboard.
But your's simply refuses to offer the proper keys!
Can you please finally fix this?
2) As a crude workaround, you offer some horribly popover menu
Now, this can only be a workaround, it is not usable for someone writing in german!
But anyway, this thing is wrongly configured for German!
If you hover over an "a" you get the pop-up, but the next key up is again the "a"!
The "ä" which you are searching for is far to the right, you need to search it in a long list.
The fix is easy: Just set the "ä" as the first character shown above your finger, when you long press!
Cannot understand why this is still not fixed.
But please don't forget: The popover is only a workaround. We still need a proper german layout as shown above!
iOS 13.4.1 SwiftKey Flow not working after iPhone migration0 votes 0 comments
I've bought new iPhone SE 2. I've made synchronisation from old iPhone SE (iOS 12.4) to new iPhone SE 2 (iOS 13.4.1). SwiftKey has been automatically installed with full access and SwiftKey Flow turned on (done automatically via iOS synchronisation). When I've tried to write some word in any type of application with SwiftKey set as primary keyboard, the SwiftKey Flow seemed to have problems with gesture recognition and keyboard was shaking all the time like it can't figure out words.
Only fix that I've been able to come up was to uninstall manually SwiftKey and install from App Store and set access rights in the settings again.
Malay Language Support0 votes 0 commentsI'm Malaysian. We are at least bilingual (I speak 4 languages). Would be useful to be able to enable both Malay and English when I type as we multi-lingual peeps in Malaysia tend to type in these languages all the time.
Space before punctuation and autocorrect0 votes 2 comments
I'm using Swiftkey on two different phones (Sony Xperia X Compact and Xperia XZ1 Compact), but for some reason it's not working as seamlessly on the newer phone although the versions are the exact same.
My main gripe is that autocorrect doesn't apply the correct spelling on pressing the space bar as it used to, and I find myself having to select it manually in the suggestions bar.
Another annoying thing is that after selecting a corrected spelling, it inserts a space that stays there if I then write a punctuation mark, "like this ."
Any option in settings likely to fix these issues? Thank you.
(version number is 184.108.40.206)

Swiftkeys now showing Emoji in iOS 13 &Plus0 votes 0 comments
I have a new iphone since a few days, the Iphone 11 pro max & ios 13 was pre-installed. But when SwiftKey is installed, none of the Android 10 emoji shows up, i just have the emojis up to Android 9. Without they keyboard the emojis are showing up. A known person of mine uses SwiftKey on Fmwhatsapp in Android 10 too and her emojis are all showing up but she has a Huawei P30. Is this problem devide-specific? What can i do that the emojis will show up? I don't want to have wasted my money on the new phone, SwiftKey is the only keyboard i can deal with..

SwiftKey 2.7.8 kills physical keyboard layout settings on iOS!1 vote 0 comments
Hi, the update 2.7.8 is blocking the layout for physical connected keyboards on iOS. I have a german keyboard which only uses the english layout and I cannot change it in the system settings. with prior versions the „Automatic“ setting works great, iOS recognises the correct Layout of my original Apple Smart Keyboard Folio on my iPad Pro. If I remove the SwiftKey keyboard in the iOS settings or change my virtual keyboard to toe original Apple keyboard before I use my physical keyboard all is working normal and I can use my german keyboard with the correct layout. Any ideas how to solve this? Thanks!

Keyboard size too big on iPad 12.90 votes 1 comment
Having just upgraded to an iPad Pro 12.9 I was expecting far more screen space, but the SwiftKey keyboard in landscape, with number row activated, is deeper than the ios native keyboard, taking up more than half the depth of the screen (it's OK in portrait). Is this what other people experience, and if so would you please back up my feature request to ask for for an option for a slimmer keyboard?
