    1 - Why is Swiftmoji no longer available in the Google Play Store?

    Many of Swiftmoji's features can now be found in SwiftKey Keyboard, so we would strongly recommend giving it a try for all your emoji needs. 

    This was a strategic decision by our team as we focus our resources on building the best possible experience with SwiftKey Keyboard for Android. 

    If you’ve already downloaded the Swiftmoji app it will continue to work on your Android device. The only difference is it's not considered an “officially supported” app and you won't receive any new updates. 

    Thank you for using Swiftmoji and we hope you enjoy using SwiftKey Keyboard for Android. 

    2 - How did Swiftmoji work?

    Swiftmoji used worldwide emoji trends to offer relevant emoji predictions based on what you typed. 

    Swiftmoji only looked at the words in the current text field, i.e. wherever your cursor was placed, and not in a message you'd previously sent.  

    To get an idea of how it worked:

    1. Type something using Swiftmoji
    2. Watch Swiftmoji predict emoji on the emoji bar as you type 
    3. Tap to insert emoji into your text field

    If you found the emoji you wanted wasn't appearing on the emoji bar, tap the plus button to the right of the emoji bar to access more relevant emoji predictions and additional emoji categories.

    3 - Which languages did it support?

    Swiftmoji was designed to be used with English only. It was available to download in the following countries UKUS, CA, AU, India, Ireland and New Zealand.

    4 - Swiftmoji customization options

    Swiftmoji offered a range of customization options including themes, dark mode, resizing, keypress sounds/vibration, autocorrect settings, and Flow (swipe) among others.

    Access to these settings was achieved either by tapping the Swiftmoji icon on your home screen, or by long pressing the '123' key from the Swiftmoji keyboard. 


    5 - What was a Swiftmoji Account?

    The Swiftmoji Account was a free service that enhanced Swiftmoji by leveraging the power of the cloud. It did this using:
    Personalization: Swiftmoji learnt from the way you typed across a range of social networks (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Google+). This improved Swiftmoji's accuracy (leading to better predictions!) as the app understood the words and phrases that mattered to you.
    Backup & Sync: Your Swiftmoji Account safely stored your learned language data and synced it across your devices. If you lost your phone or got a new one, you wouldn't need to retrain the keyboard - signing into your Swiftmoji Account brought all your personalized words right back. 

    To sign into your Swiftmoji Account: 

    1. Open your Swiftmoji app and access Swiftmoji settings
    2. Tap 'Account'
    3. Follow the onscreen instructions 


    It's possible to delete your Swiftmoji Account (and your stored language data) at any time from the Account section in Swiftmoji Settings. To do so:

    1. Open your Swiftmoji app and access Swiftmoji settings
    2. Tap 'Account'
    3. Tap 'Delete your remote data' or 'Delete Swiftmoji Account'
