Listen, I know. Long story short, got Swiftkey on my old phone for years, now I have a new phone and yeah, it won't sync. After hours of research, I found out why... According to Wikipedia...
"In 2016 SwiftKey users began reporting personal details given by SwiftKey as suggested words to other users whom does not have previous connections, other issue includes foreign language and obscene words. SwiftKey responded by disabling cloud sync for word suggestions and released an update to mitigate the issue."
I think this is why. Practically, Swiftkey is now peer-pressured. I think they don't want that issue to happen again, so that's why they don't solve the prediction problem, because that problem solved a previous issue and they don't want such issues to happen again.
Let's hope that they let it return... someday...
I use a work profile on my Pixel 2XL so I can access my work email (duh!), and until I upgraded to Android 10 I had my SwiftKey keyboard in both my personal and work profiles. But now that I've upgraded I've lost SwiftKey from my work profile. Argh! Can I get it back? It's a real pain to have different keyboards in each profile!
It's been more than a month now, since SwiftKey stopped predicting my saved words, emails etc. Its very annoying and not at all time saving.
I'll appreciate if someone can point me to another keyboard other than gboard. I'm done with SwiftKey now. They couldn't care less about their customers. Tweeted them few times, no replies or anything. Just pathetic and sad experience now.
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!
Since yesterdays update the keyboard automatically switches to the incognito black mode. This keyboard lacks all the floating punctuation symbols like quotation marks etc which makes it unusable I literally cannot type in my passwords since the missing floating punctuation hasnt been been moved anywhere else. How do I either turn off this incognito mode or get my punctuation back.
The newest beta update (184.108.40.206) completely broke my keyboard. I am stuck using the Samsung keyboard because all swiftkey does is force close over and over again until I switch back to Samsung. This is a nightmare. Please help.
Since the last update (220.127.116.11 as 7/11/2018) the SwiftKey Beta app keeps crashing. I'm using a Asus Zenfone 5 with Android Oreo 8.0.
I've got an issue. The discs bar is too small. And I keep. Pressing the. Period instead of the space. Bar. It's really annoying. And makes people. On. The other. End annoyed. Otherwise I have to slowly type and edit as I go, making this not very swift.
The latest swiftkey keyboard beta update 18.104.22.168 turns keyboard key pop ups permanently on. Using the toggle in settings does nothing to fix it.
The navigation bar on Android devices almost always shows a light or white color navigation bar instead of the same color as the app.
Gboard is implementing this feature and I can't believe SwiftKey doesn't already have it.
If it is dark and I start to type, my entire screen is dark themed but the navigation bar will be a blinding white color.
There are many apps that change this setting to match the rest of the app. Please do it for the SwiftKey keyboard.
I have a Galaxy Note 8 and the only way to have a dark keyboard color is to manually change it for SwiftKey using.a third party app. I would rather it work natively.
It would be very nice if there were a way to adjust what symbol(s) are in the long-press menu of each key, as well as which one of those is the default. For instance:
* I use tilde (~) a lot, to indicate a sentence spoken with a joking tone. I'd gladly give up, say, double-quote on 'C' to get quicker access to it. (Yes, I know that if you turn on the dedicated number row, 'E' gets tilde as its long-press instead of 3, but that costs valuable screen real-estate.)
* The number keys, when you have the dedicated number row on, don't have any long-press symbols assigned at all.
* As I Canadian, I use the English (UK) locale, since there isn't a dedicated Canadian English locale and we mostly use the British spellings for words. However, this means SwiftKey insists on making the default long-press symbol on 'X' the pound symbol; since our currency is the Canadian dollar, I'd much rather have it default to the dollar sign.
* As an English-speaker living in Québec, I occasionally need to type a French word or place name which contains an accented character. However the only accents which are used with any frequency are the acute, grave, and circumflex on a vowel or cedilla on 'C'; the other fifty-or-so accented characters available when the 'Show all accented characters' option is on are or little use to me.
Remove prediction does not seem to do what it's meant to do. It will forget the word but if you keep writing it explicitly then it will relearn it and predict it again.
This is very frustrating ...
When using Swiftkey in coding/scripting applications I often have to undo the auto space/cap swiftkey does.
If you want to write something like "!test" it will automatically make it "! Test" same with file names ".nomedia" will become " .Nomedia" (or ". nomedia" if the app has auto cap disabled for that field).
In most applications (in english at least) if you have a punctuation that doesn't come at the end of another non space character, then you likely don't mean it as part of a normal sentence and don't want the space and auto capitalization.
Would it be possible to change this or get an option to disable this? Right now using it for anything aside from natural conversational typing is almost counter productive because of it.
I just noticed that after a certain update my gifs are now censored. I've been a swift key user since the beginning (since the paid app days) and I'm now actively looking for an alternative. If I wanted to use an app that controls what I can search or use I would just use APPLE.
Using the latest version of Swiftkey and Swiftkey Beta cause scaling issues on the keyboard. Using the Galaxy S9+ with resolution set to WQHD+. Have to set keyboard to "Smallest" currently. Tried removing apps, reinstalling and clearing data, no changes.
Issue was not present on my S8+.
Searching is very important sometimes while writing. It is very annoying minimize app -> open browser -> search & copy -> minimize browser -> again open app & paste. So we wish you will bring this feature very near future and SwiftKey will not disappoint us.
The whole long press and "do not predict again" thing doesn't work at all. There are numerous words I have tried to remove, but they come back immediately. For example, I'm trying to remove God with a capital G so it won't capitalize the G every time I type god. I type god and long press to remove it, then I immediately type god and boom, it auto capitalizes to God. What is the point of having "do not predict again" if it doesn't do anything! How can I ACTUALLY remove a word from my autocorrect!
We a need more accurate way to move our keyboard cursor acrossed the text. Also it would be sweet to get more text predictions in the predictions bar, so being able to swipe and scroll to the left and see more predictions. Like in windows 10 mobile.
Basically just port over the w10m keyboard please!! :)
Hey guys, I love SwiftKey and although I dabble with other third party keyboards, I always find myself coming back, so thank you!!
This round I hooked into the beta version, it seemed in the last update (dated 15 Feb 2018) we've added in the Genie Ball for emoji suggestions. As brilliant of a feature this is, I've yet to have it accurately predict my emoji, partly due to the fact that different people get different emojis, for example I send my girlfriend purple hearts, everyone else usually gets red.
At this point, my request/suggestion is that the default emoji tab be reverted to the recents as opposed to the suggestions. By all means keep the suggestions for the second tab, but I much prefer the recents to be the first tab.
On my Galaxy S8+, the emojis are really small in the emoji panel. Is there a way to change emoji size?
Thanks to everyone!
Just like the title says, could you add arrows to the floating keyboard?
guys this setting is infuriating as I need fast long hold keys but not at the expense of my language on the keyboard constantly changing when I press space bar.
this is a keyboard destroying issue for me. I type fast and cannot have dual language functionality work properly when keyboard change occurs constantly simply by pressing spacebar.
it means I'm spending a big chunk of my time fighting to turn Japanese language off or typing English words with a Japanese keyboard slowly for my example.
Please please change the behavior of language changing as it's too annoying in its current form for me. if it isn't adjusted I have to change to another keyboard that doesn't have this annoying gesture built into the space bar.
I have English and Persian languages enabled in SwiftKey and a recent update has added a feature that combines the two languages into one keyboard. This doesn't work well at all! I can still get a Persian only keyboard but I can't do that for English anymore. Is there a way to disable this feature and get back separate keyboards again?
I just bought a Huawei P10 and SwiftKey won't sync my account data. I've signed in, but it says last sync was "not synced" and if I hit the sync now button there is nothing that happens.
Any ideas? I can't even uninstall because apparently the keyboard is baked in to the os
Just wondering if would be able to make a pulse red keyboard theme
When I'm typing a name and need to use the possessive, I add an apostrophe and then an 's' - but when I hit the space key, SwiftKey (I use SwiftKey Beta) autocorrects by removing the 's' (leaving the apostrophe at the end of the name). It's a bit frustrating having to go back and add the 's' again, I'm hoping it can be fixed. Is anyone else having this problem as well?
Love this keyboard. Was wondering if there is a way I can customize the color scheme, i.e., the letters, background and keys?
Dear team/community, Could someone please advise how I can prevent SwiftKey to autocomplete words when inserting a DOT? examples: URLs, bank accounts, initials, ..
it is very annoying that you need to edit so much
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.
