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 keys3 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

Dear SwiftKey team,
Please add support for the Ukrainian language, I and many of my friends are waiting for this for several years.
Remove accented characters not used by language3 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.
Number keys for iOS3 votes 2 comments
I keep seeing how adding the number key functionality is not currently possible in iOS. However, I've already seen this in the Touchpad keyboard. I would really love it if SwiftKey would follow suit and add this functionality.

Can't use Japanese on iPhone, what a drag!3 votes 0 comments
I've been a happy user of SwiftKey for years on my Android phone, never had an issue with it, always seamless and easy to use. I've just switched to a new iPhone and Japanese is not offered for iPhone users, this is surprising to say the least and very disappointing. I was able to simply swipe the spacebar to the right to change between English & Japanese which was perfect. I am a native English speaker but live in Japan and need to text, search, etc. in both languages. I find it hard to believe that SwiftKey does not offer Japanese for iPhone but only for Android. I'm going to have to look to another app that can do that for me, too bad really.
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.

Why there is no bangla language
Nickel dark3 votes 3 comments
Please change nickel dark back to how it was. That look was why I used SwiftKey. I've been using SwiftKey for years, back when it was a paid app on Android, and I always used that theme. I'm very disappointed and would like my theme back.
[Feature Request] Korean support for iOS Answered3 votes 5 comments
I used this very usefully on Android, but I could not use Korean after I switched to iPhone.
Why do you support Korean on Android and not on iPhone?
Please please support Korean on iPhone.

Possible keyboard size bug after v2.7.1 upgrade:2 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?
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.
Correction line2 votes 0 comments
I miss the red correction line under misspelled or non-existent words. Like in the standard apple keyboard
One-handed keyboard?2 votes 0 comments
Does Swiftkey support one handed keyboard?
If not, why havent Swiftkey added any support for one-handed keyboard? The standard mode is pretty useless on big screen phones such as the iPhone XS max / iPhone Plus modells. Swiping in such width with fullscreen keyboard is pretty annoying, and forces me to use both my hands when texting.
iOS stock theme for swiftkey2 votes 0 comments
Just wondering if there's a way to get the iOS stock keyboard theme while using SwiftKey? I've tried playing around with 'design your own theme' but it seems like you can't achieve what I'm looking for since you can't customize the buttons and the background enough.
Clip board to insert current date and/or current time2 votes 1 comment
Is it possible to add a clip that is dynamic - say cd for the current date, ct for the current time etc? Are there any sort of macros like that available?
iOS Trackpad implementation2 votes 2 comments
I'm really pleased the trackpad feature has been added to SwiftKey (it's so useful!). However, the way it is implemented in SwiftKey makes it a little less useful - particularly when scrolling up lines of text. The cursor seems to jump to the end of the closest word. Which sounds useful. But actually, because the cursor is jumping around all over the place, it's quite hard to follow. The way the trackpad is implemented in the default keyboard is much more intuitive - the cursor maintains its horizontal location when you scroll up. If it's technically possible, please implement this approach in SwiftKey! Thanks

Type halfway+swipe to complete input combination broken since last update Answered2 votes 2 comments
Say for example I'm typing the word 'atmosphere'
Before the last update, I was able to manually type out A, T, then continue to end the word by swiping from M through E. And the word completes.
However.. Now.. If I were to manually type A, T. Then continue to swipe the remaining letters. The A, T will end as 'at' and start a new word with the swiping input from M to E.
This is annoying as I've gotten used to using a combo of half manual type and swiping to complete typing style. It is also one of the reasons I've stuck to SwiftKey! Cos no other swipe keyboards allow this feature.
Please rectify 🙏🏼🙏🏼
Arrow Keys in SwiftKey for iPad2 votes 0 comments

[Duplicate] How to disable the new Toolbar? Answered2 votes 3 comments
I love SwiftKey and have used it for years. However I hate the new Toolbar feature because it now means the three predictive word suggestions become truncated and not fully visible due to the space taken up by the + symbol. For example a suggestion of 'appear' shows up as 'A...ear'. This is pretty pointless given these words are supposed to be suggestions but can't actually be read. Previously if a long word was predicted / suggested then the font would just be reduced to fit into the space which was great but now it's just useless.
Anyone know of a way to disable the Toolbar? If not can SwiftKey look at making this new feature an option rather than a mandated feature?
Please allow us to opt out of tap map2 votes 1 comment
I love using your keyboard, the ability to swipe and personalized predicting words and themes but the more I use your keyboard the more I feel like I’m fighting against the tap map AI to the point where I constantly make typos and have to rely on the autocorrect to compose text. I’ve recently reverted to the factory keyboard because I find that I make less mistakes and type more efficiently. If you could please allow us to opt out of the tap map, it would be an immensely appreciated addition to your app.

Bengali keyboard2 votes 1 comment
The Bengali language is missing on the iOS version. I am familiar with the Swiftkey Android and interested to use the same on my iOS. Is that available or has any tricks to enable?
