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.
Ask the community your SwiftKey for iOS related questions

Please let us have a fast comma button6 votes 13 comments
Can we PLEASE have the option to replace the emojii key with a comma? Or at least let us swipe right on the . key to have it instead of #?
I recently switched from Android and I'm slowly going crazy, especially since I write in German with a lot of commas.
I get that it is closer to the original iOS keyboard this way, but who cares about the original.
Sync & backup *all* pinned CLIPBOARD clips & keyword shortcuts for them (or at least: optional Import/Export as .txt or .xml) ACROSS phones!5 votes 11 comments
I use SwiftKey on multiple phones. Same login / account.
They should all be able to add new clips but also have ability to SEE clips added from different phones (same SwiftKey user!)
I'm speaking about - SYNC.
Our clipboards clips AREN'T BACKED UP AND SYNCED.
I have so many of them set-up. Do u know how much TIME I have spent setting Pinned clipboard clips and shortcuts up, just to lose them all? :(
Please, SwiftKey team, SYNC them.
Or at least, give option to export and import! (XML, TXT, whatever - as long as Import exists, too!)
I lose so much of my hard work because you DON'T backup/sync clipboard content and pinned items and shortcuts ACROSS PHONES, when SwiftKey account is the same...
I once lost my phone and bought another, enabled SwiftKey and NONE OF MY CLIPS were saved. :((((Such a big disappointment!
Please give this HIGH priority, PLEASE.
Kindest regards, Helen
PS. Do you, other fellow SwiftKey users, agree that there should be Backup & Sync (and/or Import / Export) of our Clipboard's clips?
Pinned ones, especially!
Remove prediction does not work5 votes 4 comments
Remove prediction does not seem to do what it's meant to do. It will forget the word but if you keep writing it explicitly then it will relearn it and predict it again.
This is very frustrating ...
Cursor scrolling like windows 10 mobile5 votes 0 comments
We a need more accurate way to move our keyboard cursor acrossed the text. Also it would be sweet to get more text predictions in the predictions bar, so being able to swipe and scroll to the left and see more predictions. Like in windows 10 mobile.
Basically just port over the w10m keyboard please!! :)
[Feature Request] Urdu language for iOS5 votes 12 comments
HI! I first requested support for Urdu 2.5 years ago, and request it again every year. It's always in development, that's the reply I get.
Today with the update for the support of 68 languages, I was certain that Urdu would be one of them. But no.
I want to know will it ever be supported? When?
It's very similar to Arabic, I am interested to know what makes it too difficult to support Urdu which has almost the same characters.

New to iOS4 votes 2 comments
Hi, new to iOS but previous long term android user and I loved my swiftkey keyboard. Is it me or are there less features? I really liked the arrow keys and long pressing on a letter to get a number or different symbol. Does the iOS version not have these features?. In the menu page, on Android there is a "typing" section where I set these up but missing from iOS??
Thanks in advance

The keys on my iPhone 7 are a little to small compared against the original keyboard. And it makes me do a lot of more mistakes.
Haptic Feedback iOS4 votes 2 comments
Would love to have an option for haptic feedback for SwiftKey iOS. I can't understand why they haven't added that yet, it seems really simple. I don't want to leave SwiftKey because of this, it's such a great keyboard.
Accented characters & top number row4 votes 1 comment
I’ve used this keyboard on all of my devices, it is my go to keyboard. I recently changed from an android to an iPhone. It is my first time using an iPhone/IOS. SwiftKey is not allowing me the option to have accented characters or the option to add a number row. I was wondering if this is just the way it is with iOS ?

[Feature Request] Please make special characters visible on the keys4 votes 2 comments
I really would like to not have to hit the number key to get special characters and numbers . On my android I could long press a key to get the character or had the option for a number row. In iOS, it's really a pain to have to leave the main keys to just get a character or number. Can you add a number row and make special characters accessible on the letter keys? Thank you
Remove accented characters not used by language4 votes 0 comments
Just switched from Android (where this keyboard worked just great for me for last couple of years) to iOS and have an impression that it doesn't speed up my typing at all here...
Can you please remove accented characters that are not supported/does not appear in the selected language? I'm using Polish as my main language and when trying to input "Ą" I have to scroll all the way through À, Á, Â, Ä and couple more that my language doesn't use to reach my native letter at the end (can't make a screenshot with this long-pressed pop-up appearing on screen). The same situation happens with other accented characters of Polish language (Ę, Ł, Ó, etc). That was not an issue on Android.
Korean language for iOS114 votes 5 comments
There are other posts about this which were months old, but I feel that I have to voice out again.
I was on an android phone until recently, and I had been using SwiftKey on android (English, Korean, Chinese, Japanese). I just switched to iOS recently and was taken aback that foreign languages such as Korean, Chinese and Japanese are not available here..
Can the community be given some sort of updates on whether there is a team working on adding these new languages in the roadmap?
SwiftKey is the best keyboard out there for me and I am currently struggling with stock keyboards. I hope at the very least Korean keyboard can be added soon.
Edit: I would definitely be more than glad to pay for your keyboard even if you add Korean keyboard as a premium feature
Thank you very much.
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 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!

When will Korean be available for iOS. It's been available for Android for years now.

Since English is a standard spoken language you should add to the English base language other 2 spoken languages so you are able to type in 3 languages simultaneously.

My Swiftkey doesn't work in Mail app ONLY. So weird.. Any suggestions?
Disable period key next to spacebar3 votes 4 commentsHi, love SwiftKey till the end, but almost everytime I use SwiftKey, all.my.sentences.look.like.this. The spacebar is shrinked from the right side thanks to a period being there, and I have made so many misclicks on it since I always use the right part of the spacebar to enter a space. An option to remove that period would be very welcomed. SwiftKey has literally been my go-to keyboard for like 2 years now, but no matter how long I've been with it, that period still gets in the way. Any help is appreciated.
iOS 13 iPhone Xr editing in mail app uses up too much screen space3 votes 0 comments
Using Swiftkey in the iOS 13 Mail app with iPhone Xr, the keyboard now takes up so much screen space that there's not much room for editing the text! I've had to switch off the number row (which I really like) to save space, because the new iOS editing bar/row (whatever it's called), can't be hidden like it can with the native keyboard. Any ideas? Anyone agree this is an issue?
Also, although I now only have Swiftkey enabled, so that there is no Globe/Global key at the bottom, there is still about 1cm of empty space on the screen between the bottom of the space bar and the home bar/line at the bottom of the screen. Is there any way this space could be reclaimed, I wonder?
Thanks for any ideas or comments.
iOS 13.2.2 but same issue since iOS 13
Swiftkey won't stay default since update to iOS 133 votes 3 comments
Ever since my XS max update to iOS 13, the keyboard default won't stay constant. I've moved the top keyboard around within Settings General Keyboards, but SwiftKey at the top typically will not come up as default. Worked fine prior to the iOS updates. Not sure what to do.
[Feature request] Armenian keyboard support in iOS and keyboard layout options for Armenian language in Android3 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.
Remove Apple tools bar3 votes 1 comment
Is it possible to remove this area, which I marked on my screen to get more screen space for my conversations? I disabled all other keyboards and microphone functions so all buttons disappeared from a bar and now it's just unused and wasted space on my screen :( Anyone?
