SwiftKey is freezing my Samsung S8 / S8+1 voto 6 comentariosHelp!!I have a S8 Plus with the SwiftKey app installed. I plug the phone in at night before bed around 1230 and when I wake up in the morning the phone will be frozen and had froze around 1 or 2 am. I uninstalled the app for a few days and the freezing stopped. When I installed the app again the freezing continued. I tried to beta version as well hoping maybe it would be fine and I still have the same results. Anything you could think of???
Using Swiftkey in Browser/typing in a forum, spacebutton becomes random letters.2 votos 6 comentarios
Latest version of Swiftkey is a nightmare when typing in Forums in Chrome(at least).
When trying to type certain letters and/or make a space, you'll end up with random letters on the keyboard instead. Trying to "finish" a word via pressing space will instead "type" for example: " Hellb" instead of becoming "Hello".
SwiftKey issue switches languages when not intended0 votos 6 comentarios

Pressing space key keeps switching languages spontaneously... Quite a bother.
Can I split the space key and language switch options into two keys?

When using the GIF option, new message opens1 voto 6 comentarios

Word prediction only in selected language7 votos 6 comentarios
Is there a way to disable the multi language prediction? I have german and english installed and it's totally annoying that the word prediction uses both languages at the same time. This causes many false predicted words.
I only want to have predictions in the current active language. Since it is so easy to switch between the languages by swiping the space bar I don't need any pseudo intelligent language detection.

Issue with WhatsApp pin5 votos 6 comentarios
I am unable to enter pin for WhatsApp and few other banking applications.
WhatsApp pin is a 6 digit number, I can enter the first 4 digits then when you try to enter the 5 digit it overrides the 4th digit and Keep doing this.
I am not aware of any workaround, I end up using Gboard for WhatsApp pin and in other apps.

Samsung theme for Swiftkey4 votos 6 comentarios
Hello, I would like to request a Samsung theme based for Swiftkey.
This is the one I'm talking about:
You see it has rounded corners, no shadows, white and silver-ish, and they're simple and beautiful. And its easier to type on them. Please bring it to Swiftkey!
I've searched for every theme available to download and none of them are closed to these.
Blackberry Keyone with SwiftKey2 votos 6 comentarios
I would like to use SwiftKey with the Keyone, which is possible, but a couple of behaviors keep sending me back to the Blackberry keyboard. Double space doesn't create a period (and then auto cap the next letter), and a press-and-hold on a key doesn't capitalize it. I find these really important for typing speed and efficiency.
Any possibility of getting support for this behavior?
And if that's too easy, it would be outstanding to add support for the zone swiping the blackberry keyboard does (swipe up in a specific 1/3 of the keyboard to select that suggested word).

Problem with SwiftKey backup / sync. Restoring previous backup0 votos 6 comentarios
I have used SwiftKey for quite a while now. Today I used "factory settings" option in my phone. After I installed everything back, updated and logged in again to my account it started my "history" from the scratch. There are no remembered words, there is a different layout etc.
Can anyone give me a solution? E.g. restoring a previous backup? From a week ago?

"Loading predictions" message after last update1 voto 6 comentarios
After installing the update available on the 18th Apr 2017, the top line of the keyboard just says : "Loading predictions".
I Tried to uninstall/install again and it doesn't go away. I have the English, Portuguese and French dictionaries as I had previously. Any ideas?

Feature Requests - User viewable dictionary19 votos 6 comentarios
I use SwiftKey for years now and I've got rid of most of the weird suggestions now, but it took extremely long and I had to remove lots of words every day for many years. And still I sometimes get suggestions like
"gaucho Hagan Hitchens Cecil Barco barstool Megan yap naval brouhaha..."
that nobody needs. And that after removing thousands of words from the dictionary.
I know that the dictionary must be somewhere in SwiftKey's app data, since it has to be saved offline somewhere. But normal users can't see/edit some binary file in a protected folder, so my suggestion is:
Please make the list of words that are currently in the dictionary available to edit in some form, maybe as a text file (although I doubt it could be opened with the RAM of a phone), maybe as a list with checkboxes to delete many entries at once, maybe in another form.

Keyboard leaves margins on sides of the screen1 voto 6 comentarios
I just got Android 6.0.1 update and installed SwiftKey on it. Everything is working fine, but it's not wide enough on the whole screen.
You can see it on screen below:
As you can see, there are narrow space borders on the left and right... Why it's happening?
Typing quirk0 votos 6 comentarios
I experience a quirk when using SwiftKey beta (or non beta) with Talon for Android twitter client on an AOSP based nougat rom.
When quoting a tweet, the typing cursor on screen stays on the 2nd line on the very left side. It's very off-putting as I think I'm typing on that second line but the text moves to the top line when pressing space for the next word. This doesn't occur with other keyboards.

Problem with long button press for numeric characters0 votos 5 comentariosI've configured my long button press time to 200 ms. This works well, except on the q and the p key. Currently I use the numeric characters mostly from the long press feature on the top row. But the long press time on q and p seems to need holding the button about a second. Any idea why?
