I am finding the "landing" area for the "o" to be too small to register properly. Literally 9 times out of 10 I will get an "i" instead of an "o". Similarly, even though the space bar is a long bar, unless you hit it close toward centre, it will not register. This happens on bith the iPad and iPhone.

[Feature Request] Better layout of last used emoji1 vote 1 comment
Thank you for building such amazing product. I really love your keyboard, especially automatic discover used language but I'd be cool if you could change layout of last used emoji. Something close to Apples grid of Emojis which I believe is more comfortable to use. I can see more emojis at once. Plus, in my opinion it's better to rank emojis by number of use instead of last used.

Please do not change the Nickel Dark. Just create a new keyboard. The new fresh redesign is not better. I like the existing nickel dark as it looks like a real keyboard
1 question and one "bug"0 votes 0 comments
The question is can you add the back erase words like is on the android version? Not only flow.
The "bug" i have iphone 5s with the last 10.3.1 and i went to general\keyboards and erase all the keyboards and add swiftkey and emoji.
The bug is when i have the phone lock and receive a message and i want to reply. When i open the reply keyboard, the main keyboard show is swiftkey but always open in the emoji option not in the normal letters to write. Only show like this in the lock/ reply screen. Of i open any app and pop the Keyboard always go to the letters option. Only in the reply is go to the emoji.

How to remove the annoying emoji keyboard1 vote 2 comments
First of all: what a great product! But there is one thing that drives me nuts: how to change languages easily. I'm aware there is a setting to disable the emoji keyboard and supposedly it should replace it with the standard globe icon, but this is not exactly true as it behaves differently.
Let's assume I'm in swiftkey (where I have EN and DE as languages). Now I want to write my mum in Spanish, how do I get Spanish keyboard? On iOS keyboard I would just hold the globe and swipe to Spanish (hold->swipe). With swiftkey I have to click once the globe which brings me to next language which is the iOS emoji. Now I have to click Abc, then hold the globe and finally I can pick Spanish. What a horrible UX (click->click->hold->swipe). I'm sorry but the ios emoji picker is so much more a delight to use, so I would like to just remove the swiftkey custom menu altogether and access any keyboard directly. Is that possible? Thanks in advance.
[Duplicate] Cursor Control - Spacebar Answered12 votes 3 comments
I was wondering if in addition to the 3D touch cursor control there could be a cursor control function integrated into the spacebar?
It'd be similar to touch ID in the sense that it would understand the gesture as a distinct one.
It would require a clean swipe to the left or right starting on the spacebar to activate in order to prevent any unwarranted cursor control during multi-word swiping.
I believe it would suit the flowly nature of SwiftKey and be a welcome option for those either:
1) wanting cursor control without the pause 3D touch demands.
2) enables iPhone SE users to have SwiftKey offer another feature stock doesn't provide enhancing the SwiftKey flow optimised phone size.
Cheers for giving this a read either way and love the app guys!

Backspace key issue with Outlook for IOS Completed0 votes 5 comments
There appears to be an issue with the backspace key in SwiftKey when using the outlook app for emails within IOS.
To replicate the issue do the following:
Open an email sent to you.
Type some words,
Press enter TWICE (or more)
Type some more words
Now try backspace to delete those words.. It will now only delete one character per push at a time even when you hold the backspace key down,
The issue is not apparent when writing a new email, or replying to an email but you've not pressed the enter key twice.
IOS 10.3 (but was an issue before this version)
Outlook 2.20.0 (But was an issue before this version)
SwitftKey 1.6.3 (But was an issue before this version)
Any thoughts? I've raised a support query with the Outlook app team too .. but seeing as you are both MS owned, so perhaps you can talk to each other (trying not to laugh when typing that! )
New beta update with swiftmoji0 votes 2 comments
After one day, I can say I don't much care for this update. The emoji are too small and some have been removed. In particular, the musical notes. This build just doesn't seem friendly to me. I liked it better the way it was. I'm not a big user of Swiftmoji anyway. I don't mind the Swiftmoji integration, but it's a hassle to search other emoji. Some of the dark ones I can't even see.

Number row and other features missing on iOS16 votes 25 comments
I was so far a happy user of Switkey on Android, but I've been forced (for professional reasons) obliged to switch my phone to an iPhone...
So I was happy to see that Swiftkey was available on iOS as well, but when I tried to get the additional number row on top of my keyboard, I saw that this feature was missing on the iOS version such as some others.
Is there any roadmap for porting this feature on the iOS version, and more globally for aligning the two versions?

[Feature Request] Better emoji options, layout and handy things1 vote 1 comment
While there are yearly more and more emoji, the search to find the right one is getting harder and harder. SwiftKey isn't helping... yet.
1. There is a lot of whitespace in the emoji board. Instead of 3,5 visable rows you could make it at least 4 rows (or even 4,5 if you read my second point). And instead of 9 emoji per row, you can make it 10.
2. The catogory buttons are very high, it takes up valueble space!
3. Have an favorite page, with emoji user can mark as favorite (with a 3D touch or long press). The upper row is changing so much, it's useless.
4. Replacement words (yes, just like Apple, but better). If I write pizza on the text keyboard, you can mark the word, because there is an emoji. One tap without switching to the emoji board could make it a real emoji pizza.
5. And it is possible while typing "piz" dat instead of the word pizza is shown in the suggestionsrow, you also could show the emoji.

Feature Request - Longpress and secondary keys15 votes 9 comments
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 😊
[Duplicate] Trackpad/Touchpad Answered1 vote 1 comment
On newer iPhones and iPads there is a feature I don't know how it's called, but it looks like a trackpad/touchpad.
If you press somewhere on the keybord for a longer time or with 2 fingers, the letters disappear and you can use the trackpad to positioning the cursor.
I think, this is very usefull, because I often have problems to place the cursor where I want it to be.

Red-underlined text2 votes 15 comments
I installed SwitKey on my iPhone 7. I have set Italian as default language and I use two languages on my keyboard, that is Italian and English. In fact, on SwiftKey keyboard space bar I can see IT-EN.
Howeve, if I type by using that keyboard, in any foeld (writing an SMS or an iMessage, filling a field in a web form, creating a note, posting on Facebook), the text is ALWAYS underlined by red, as the words would not be recognized by proofer.
