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?

Keyboard size too big on iPad 12.90 votes 1 comment
SwiftKey with iOS Accessibility0 votes 3 comments
I use the accessibility shortcut on ios quite often as I have an iPhone XR and the screen is too large to operate one-handed so I have the button placed around the middle of the right edge. Problem is, when swiftkey opens up, it pages the button to the bottom center of the screen making me have to constantly place it back which gets frustrating. This has not happened with the stock keyboard.
Accessing the SwiftKey keyboard from the larger ios keyboard0 votes 0 comments
I have just switched to an iPad pro 12.9 and was upset to find that I could not access the SwiftKey keyboard from the standard ios keyboard. Unlike on the old, smaller ios keyboard there is no globe key to switch between keyboards. However, after some research I find that if you press and HOLD the emoji key, then you can switch to SwiftKey. The SwiftKey on-line help only speaks of the globe key, which could leave people stuck not knowing how to access all the great SwiftKey advantages.
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!

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,

Swiftkey with Group I-Messaging0 votes 0 comments

Anyone else experiencing that?
Turn off smart hashtags ? and get rid of that line which has the keyboard taking up OVER HALF THE SCREEN.0 votes 0 comments
I used swift key on most of my devices, iPad, Android Pads. I kept using Swype on the phone but finally decided I wanted swift key everywhere. Big mistake.
This lasted about 15 minutes as the swiftkey keyboard takes up over HALF of the screen.
I need to turn off all the extra junk above the keyboard.
The hashtag line is junk, how do I turn it off ? I see some old stuff when googling about turning it off on android but don't see same on iOS.
I'm back to using swype cause this is unusable on an iPhone.

Keyboard does not display0 votes 1 comment
For the past 2 months the display of the keyboard- in fact ANY keyboard - has been problematic. Most of the time it displays OK then without a reason it disappears and is very difficult to recover. Even rebooting both my iPad and iPhone XS Max often fail to recover any keyboard. And at present I cannot recover any keyboard on the iPad.
I don't know if this is caused by an iOS update or by SwiftKey and Apple wouldn't help me as I have a 3rd party keyboard installed. Heeeeelp!

долгое время пользовался клавиатурой на андроиде, там есть 2 очень полезные функции: 1.удаление слов свайпом влево и 2.долгий тап на букву вызывает определённый символ, можно было даже регулировать время тапа. не понимаю в чем проблема перенести эти очень полезные функции на ios

On what basis did you remove the letter from our alphabet? The letter "ё". This letter can not be removed, as removing it you violate the entire Russian language!!! You can even women's rights around the world are breaking! As referring to feminine nouns say it! Separately, in Russian the word is "ЕЁ"!!! Have no strength to endure this mockery from the lack of letters, because you so decided, and on what grounds and who gave you the right to do this, I'm sick of your monopoly! If you do not solve this issue, it will have very disastrous consequences for you!

Censorship with GIFs0 votes 0 comments
I understand that SwiftKey is not age restricted, and therefore needs to filter out explicit language. However, there should be an option to disable these filters, especially for GIFs. As an adult, I don't need my keyboard to parent me. If I want to find a vulgar GIF, I should be able to. Other keyboards allow it, SwiftKey should too.
English Swiftkey keyboard no longer an option0 votes 0 comments

Enhancing SwiftKey Symbol Shortcut Key, et al...0 votes 0 comments
SwiftKey Suggestions: I would like to see you add a couple of other "symbols" to the short you get when you press on the "Period Key" in three lower right. It appears there is room for 3-4 more. In order of preference, I would like to see: colon, semicolon dash, & forward slash (: ; - /). This would greatly speed up my text entry. I also wish the behavior of a press on the colon & semicolon reassembled the period & comma (i.e., Pressing the symbol after entry of a word places the symbol directly AFTER the word; NO space). Let me know if you have any suggestions. An option to go directly to "voice input of text", possibly associated with the "+ options" would also be helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions.../Ray

How to add new words to predictions0 votes 1 comment
Hello! I have read the article about this. When there's a new word that SwiftKey doesn't know, the word (b)should(/b) appear in the left side of predicted words. Then I should click it and boom, the word has been added to the dictionary. But no, the word I am typing amd SwiftKey doesn't know, does not appear anywhere where I could click on it and teach the word. Is this a bug? I have tried to see every setting but nothing has worked. Also, SwiftKey on Android learned words just by typing it and pressing space. But on iOS it doesn't seem to work like that.
Thank you for help!

Predictive text0 votes 0 comments
Hello - great app. I've been using it on iPhone for years, only I've noticed very little improvement in terms of predictability in that time. My main complaint is its inability to predict text in context of the rest of the sentence or paragraph. Here are two words which the app frequently mistypes due to proximity of letters:
The text I just sent to my daycare provider is as follows and it got the above words confused. If the app were to be developed further, it should be able to detect wrong use of word in context of their respective sentences. Here is what I wrote:
Hi, how are you? Just a quick heads up, the girls list their TV privileges this week because they got in trouble :) Is it OK to please all them to do other activities today and tomorrow? Thanks and see you at 5!
Clearly "list" and "all" are wrong in the context of the above sentences. It would be great if the app could detect that and change the words proactively.
Swiftkey red underline is gone!0 votes 0 comments
I am using Samsung Galaxy S6 with Android 7.0, and here is the thing:
When I use Swiftkey, the red underline is missing.
When I switch back to Samsung keyboard, the red underline is working again!
So, what is the problem? I remember tech news that red underline is a spell checker feature included in the free netflix core Android OS to mark the misspelled words, and previously it was working with Swiftkey.
Can anyone assist me, or if you are a Swiftkey user on Android please tell me if you got the red underline or not?
Edit: spell checker option is not in the setting anymore! It has been moved to Samsung keyboard, is that a bug?
i.e. I can't do this:
Settings > system > language and input > advanced > spell checker > language > set English instead of system default.
