I have been a long time user of SwiftKey on Android and I was very happy with it, now I switched for iOS and I would like to keep my habits as SwiftKey. Unfortunately on iOS is slow when starting up and sometimes the predictions do not appears at all. I decided to give up and use the iOS keyboard instead

Keyboard acting crazy on iPhone and iPad2 votos 6 comentarios
Lately the keyboard is acting up very often. The following three things have been happening on and off during the last month.
It keeps closing and reopening as I type.
It changes to the regular keyboard making me choose SwiftKey after every word or two.
It is not smooth - after I begin typing a word it gives choices of another word but then resumes the current word.

Multiple iOS 11 apps don’t work well0 votos 6 comentarios
Using the 3D Touch cursor in the DayOne app doesn't really work: the cursor disappears (who makes it useless) or is very slow. Whzt happens is that SwiftKey wastes time trying to predict or correct for each movement of the cursor, instead of switching this off during movement.
Another big problem is with the text entry on boardgamegeek.com, when adding a game to one's collection (requires registration): the web widget used reacts badly to SwiftKey's corrections, with a tendency to swap a word and the space that precedes it. More generally SwiftKey is confused about where it is in the text: it shows an incorrect word context (that does not represent the actual position of the cursor but something close instead). My guess is that this has something to do with registering the cursor position correctly, even when it moves or deletes characters.
Feature Requests for iOS - Make SwiftKey as Great as on Android!15 votos 5 comentarios
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,

Flow accuracy (still)6 votos 5 comentarios
When is the accuracy of flow going to get addressed, or even just the ability to reset the tap map?
It's been months and the accuracy is still totally horrific. It is and had been for a long time slightly better when you freshly Install, and the tap map hadn't adjusted the keys to help with accuracy. After a little use and the keys get "adjusted" and you are fighting against the AI that's trying to make things better. This has totally been a huge problem, but it seems to get over looked. As said before reinstalling helps with accuracy, but reinstalling and having to reteach your dictionary and all is not that great of an option,
Will accuracy ever improve?
From the official Microsoft SwiftKey page...
"Frustration-free typing", "Fast and accurate"
Have they even tried using it???
Korean language for iOS113 votos 5 comentarios
There are other posts about this which were months old, but I feel that I have to voice out again.
I was on an android phone until recently, and I had been using SwiftKey on android (English, Korean, Chinese, Japanese). I just switched to iOS recently and was taken aback that foreign languages such as Korean, Chinese and Japanese are not available here..
Can the community be given some sort of updates on whether there is a team working on adding these new languages in the roadmap?
SwiftKey is the best keyboard out there for me and I am currently struggling with stock keyboards. I hope at the very least Korean keyboard can be added soon.
Edit: I would definitely be more than glad to pay for your keyboard even if you add Korean keyboard as a premium feature
Thank you very much.
Retention of capitalization when the word is predicted0 votos 5 comentarios
If I am inputting a word and predictive test thinks it's a formal name and capitalizes it, if I go back to correct the prediction it will insist on keeping the first letter of whatever word I put in to replace it an uppercase letter. I have to go back and shift it back down to lowercase manually. If autocorrect inserts a caps shift, it should also remove it when corrected.

See the screenshot - for Czech language I only need - e, é and ě. Need to hide the others.
By the way - the new design is just ugly. Look how unproportional the pop-up letters are. Can't even look at it.

iOS Shortcuts0 votos 5 comentarios
Hey fellow SwiftKey users,
I'm a fan from my Android days, and I absolutely LOVE having SwiftKey on my iPhone now. However, I'm a big user of custom keyboard shortcuts in iOS. I can't seem to get them to work with the SwiftKey keyboard, though. Anyone else have this trouble? Is it just a native iOS limitation?

Voice to text auto punctuation issue0 votos 4 comentarios
I'm running into a weird issue with SwiftKey voice to text on iOS (version 2.8): every time i pause momentarily it adds a period '.' as though it think i finished a sentence. I speak pretty quickly and my paragraphs are just filled with short sentences and periods. It also occasionally puts up question marks when its not a question. Has anyone encountered this? Is there a way i can disable auto punctuation on voice to text?
Quotation mark glitch2 votos 4 comentariosI've had a glitch with swiftkey where often I'll type a word, hit space, type a first quotation mark to begin to type a quote, and it will add the quotation mark to the end of my last typed word instead of after the space I just typed, and then insert a space after the quotation mark. Basically acting as if Im finishing a quoted word/phrase and typing the second quotation mark when I'm actually beginning a quoted word/phrase and typing the first quotation mark. No matter how many times I try again it won't work correctly So say I'm trying to type out: I went to the store and was like "can I get a coffee" One of these two things happen: 1. Type out I went to the coffee shop and was like+space+" > autocorrects to like+"+space > delete the space and quotation mark > try typing like+space+" again > autocorrects again > just deal with it and type out like" can I get a coffee > go back and delete the space before can > insert a space before like Or, 2. Type out I went to the coffee shop and was like+space+" > autocorrects to like+"+space > delete the space and quotation mark > try typing like+space+" again > autocorrects to like+space+"+space > have to type out like " can I get a coffee > go back and delete the space before can It doesn't happen every time, but I'd say 1 in 10 times, which is pretty annoying. Has been happening the whole time I've had swiftkey on ios (since Sept 2019), and happened before then when I had swiftkey for Android. I submitted a bug report months ago but nothing has been fixed :/ Not sure what to do here as I'd prefer to not take any troubleshooting steps that would result in swiftkey forgetting my hundreds of saved words
Disable period key next to spacebar3 votos 4 comentariosHi, love SwiftKey till the end, but almost everytime I use SwiftKey, all.my.sentences.look.like.this. The spacebar is shrinked from the right side thanks to a period being there, and I have made so many misclicks on it since I always use the right part of the spacebar to enter a space. An option to remove that period would be very welcomed. SwiftKey has literally been my go-to keyboard for like 2 years now, but no matter how long I've been with it, that period still gets in the way. Any help is appreciated.
&, %, @, etc. Symbols on iPhone ABC Keyboard8 votos 4 comentariosI tried switching to iPhone earlier this year, and tried Swiftkey and Google Keyboard Apps on it. It is maddening having to switch to the SYM screen and back to the ABC screens.In Android, a delayed 'press' on a number key brings up a symbol like &, %, @, etc. Much more efficient!Will Apple iOS not their keyboards to do this? If not, why? If they did, I would switch back.(Apple's embedded keyboard doesn't even provide numbers across the top...at least Swiftkey does)Since the keyboard is the main source for input on a smartphone, I've chosen stay with Android.Thanks,
Remove prediction does not work5 votos 4 comentarios
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 ...
How can IOS NOT have a number row???0 votos 4 comentarios
Every keyboard on all computers has a distinct number row above the letters!! What a concept!! And WHY would it be so hard to find one for an iPhone? I am an Android user with a rooted phone. I LOVE Swiftkey, so downloaded it on my new work phone, my VERY FIRST iPhone. NO number row, no cursors. I sent emails to Swiftkey, but still no number row. So thanks for suggesting Touch Pal. Still not Swiftkey, but at least I can just slide to get the numbers I need. I want it MY way!!

I don't understand how to enable Haptic feedback in SwiftKey. The support article says
Opening the emoji panel, long-pressing the emoji/globe key,
and activating the 'emoji bomb' will all trigger small vibrations.
But i don't see an "Emoji Bomb" in the emoji panel.

How do I make special characters appear above each alphabetical letter?2 votos 3 comentarios
I just upgraded from an Android Smartphone to an iPhone SE 2020 iOS 12, but I cannot configure my Swiftkey keyboard to display the special characters above each alphabetical letter like I did on Android. .
I know that special characters are also accessible by pressing the "123" key then the "+ = #" key if I want to use the underscore "_" for example but it's really not practical, whereas on my Android Swiftkey keyboard, I just have to stay and press the "W" key to make the underscore "_"!
Can you help me configure my Swiftkey keyboard on my iPhone SE 2020 iOS 12 as on my Android please.
I'm placing a screenshot of my Android Swiftkey keyboard where the special characters above the letters I want to appear on my iPhone Swiftkey keyboard are outlined in red.
