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 😊

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.

SwiftKey bugs in iOS and safari [Under Review]0 votes 8 comments
when using SK in safari with iOS (not version specific) first letters double when selecting predictive offers. Also, backspace to remove typing will stop even though there are still characters present, sometimes several words.
I love SK on android but the iOS version is extremely problematic, these bugs have existed for me for years. I only occasionally switch to SK in hopes they have been resolved, only to find not. Device is iPad Air.
[Feature Request] - Number row for iOS10 votes 7 comments
I used an Android Nexus 5 for many years with swiftkey. I really liked the keyboard layout with the numbers on top row and symbols among the letters, where you press a bit longer to get the number or symbol.
I switched to an iPhone and immediately put swiftkey on thinking it would be the same, but no. The numbers and symbols are hidden in another keyboard. I hate this. I always end up hunting for a symbol I'm looking for.
The Android way is just so much more intuitive. Is there some setting on iOS/swiftkey that gives the Android type keyboard? I went thru all the settings but couldn't find anything.
SwiftKey is slow on iOS 10.3.2 and iPhone 60 votes 7 comments
I have been a long time user of SwiftKey on Android and I was very happy with it, now I switched for iOS and I would like to keep my habits as SwiftKey. Unfortunately on iOS is slow when starting up and sometimes the predictions do not appears at all. I decided to give up and use the iOS keyboard instead
Can't login to SwiftKey Account with Facebook Completed1 vote 7 comments
The latest version of SwiftKey (2.0.0) on iOS 10.3.2 and 10.3.3 is not allowing me to log into SwiftKey cloud using my Facebook account (had no previous issue until the latest update to 2.0.0). Have attached the relevant screenshots.
After clicking on "Continue" on the "Confirm Login" screen, Safari leads to a blank page; and on pressing "done" I get taken back to SwiftKey with the on screen error message.
Keyboard acting crazy on iPhone and iPad2 votes 6 comments
Lately the keyboard is acting up very often. The following three things have been happening on and off during the last month.
It keeps closing and reopening as I type.
It changes to the regular keyboard making me choose SwiftKey after every word or two.
It is not smooth - after I begin typing a word it gives choices of another word but then resumes the current word.
Status of an update to SwiftKey for iOS to support Windows 10's cloud-synced clipboard Planned7 votes 6 comments
Windows 10 October 2018 Update is going to be finished later this month and released, then released to the public officially in October 2018. The cloud-synced clipboard functionality of Windows 10 October 2018 Update will supposedly work on mobile iOS and Android devices via the SwiftKey keyboard. My understanding is a SwiftKey keyboard for Android is already in beta testing which includes the cloud-synced clipboard functionality to go along with the functionality in Windows 10 October 2018 Update.
What is the status of a SwiftKey for iOS beta to add the cloud-synced clipboard functionality?
Thank you for the feedback.

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.
swiftkey is actually deleting spaces after I manually add them?-1 votes 5 comments
Recently Swiftkey has started behaving strangely. At first I thought it was just a case of 'auto space' being turned off somehow (although I didn't do that) - but then (after totally failing to find any way to turn auto space on or off - despite following multiple online instructions) I realised it's worse than that.
When I type or flow several words, swiftkey will randomly remove the spaces between them - even if I manually typed those spaces!? Not always, but often enough that I look like a barely literate typer - and this makes the tool completely unusable. I've had to go back to the - totally unintuitive - iOS keyboard.
Can someone please tell me what's going on, and - more importantly - how to get back to the usual Swiftkey operation that I have come to depend on?
Cannot log in to my Swiftkey data on iOS0 votes 5 comments
I cannot get to my swiftkey data on iOS and neither into my data on windows.
When I go to "view and manage your data" from my account (which is a Microsoft account), I get to the page data.swiftkey.com on my iPhone's browser (Safari, but I also tried Edge with the same result). Then I am asked to sign in, but I consequently get the following message:
Whatever I try, I cannot get in and stay in this same loop.

Can't put the cursor where I tap Answered0 votes 5 commentsEvery time I need to put the cursor in a specific place by just tapping, it didn't work at all. It has galerna since iOS 14 launch and I think I can't bare with this problem anymore. It's so annoying trying to put the cursor somewhere in the text you've previously wrote to add or delete something. It used to work perfectly fine. Why is this happening???
IOS - Still no Korean Support??? Answered0 votes 5 comments
Swiftkey was my keyboard of choice for Android for many years. Just switched to IOS and I'm shocked that Korean is not supported. Based on search results, it seems that it's been this way for many years. This just doesn't make sense to me.
Possible keyboard size bug after v2.7.1 upgrade: Completed2 votes 5 comments
I just upgraded to v 2.7.1 on my iPhone 5c. This resulted in the SwiftKey keyboard not filling the full width of the screen. (see screen shot below - note the gray region on the left/right edge of the keyboard).
Is it possible to fix this bug in the next release?
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,

Flow accuracy (still)6 votes 5 comments
When is the accuracy of flow going to get addressed, or even just the ability to reset the tap map?
It's been months and the accuracy is still totally horrific. It is and had been for a long time slightly better when you freshly Install, and the tap map hadn't adjusted the keys to help with accuracy. After a little use and the keys get "adjusted" and you are fighting against the AI that's trying to make things better. This has totally been a huge problem, but it seems to get over looked. As said before reinstalling helps with accuracy, but reinstalling and having to reteach your dictionary and all is not that great of an option,
Will accuracy ever improve?
From the official Microsoft SwiftKey page...
"Frustration-free typing", "Fast and accurate"
Have they even tried using it???

Korean language for iOS113 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.
Retention of capitalization when the word is predicted0 votes 5 comments
If I am inputting a word and predictive test thinks it's a formal name and capitalizes it, if I go back to correct the prediction it will insist on keeping the first letter of whatever word I put in to replace it an uppercase letter. I have to go back and shift it back down to lowercase manually. If autocorrect inserts a caps shift, it should also remove it when corrected.

prediction & autocorrect disappears Completed0 votes 5 comments
I recently downloaded the latest update of Swiftkey, so I'm currently running Swiftkey 2.0.0 and iOS 10.3.1.
The problem is that since this update, the prediction & autocorrect feature doesn't work anymore (feature that is the most important for me).
The "autocorrect" button is switched on in my settings, I tried to switch off/on my phone and to uninstall/reinstall swiftkey, to log off/log in swiftkey (also, since this operation, I can't log in anymore with facebook, same problem than this post : https://support.swiftkey.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115002075825-Can-t-login-to-SwiftKey-Account-with-Facebook?flash_digest=2a74e1df58f09ec0ef67ccd861729391949f6864&page=1 ) , but nothing works...

See the screenshot - for Czech language I only need - e, é and ě. Need to hide the others.
By the way - the new design is just ugly. Look how unproportional the pop-up letters are. Can't even look at it.
