I'm really pleased the trackpad feature has been added to SwiftKey (it's so useful!). However, the way it is implemented in SwiftKey makes it a little less useful - particularly when scrolling up lines of text. The cursor seems to jump to the end of the closest word. Which sounds useful. But actually, because the cursor is jumping around all over the place, it's quite hard to follow. The way the trackpad is implemented in the default keyboard is much more intuitive - the cursor maintains its horizontal location when you scroll up. If it's technically possible, please implement this approach in SwiftKey! Thanks

[Feature Request] Please make special characters visible on the keys3 votos 2 comentarios
I really would like to not have to hit the number key to get special characters and numbers . On my android I could long press a key to get the character or had the option for a number row. In iOS, it's really a pain to have to leave the main keys to just get a character or number. Can you add a number row and make special characters accessible on the letter keys? Thank you

Number keys for iOS3 votos 2 comentarios
I keep seeing how adding the number key functionality is not currently possible in iOS. However, I've already seen this in the Touchpad keyboard. I would really love it if SwiftKey would follow suit and add this functionality.

Gmail personalization doesn't work - and does not fail0 votos 2 comentarios
So, I'm trying to teach swiftkey some words in bulk so I don't have to type them all. I send myself an email with the words which I want to be added and then I click the personalise with Gmail. All goes seemingly well, I get 'Last personaliszed: just now", then I try swiping the new words and they are not getting completed. If I try to type them I can see they are not there bc I get the word grayed out ready to be added. Obviously new words were not added.
I don't have the problem with 'personalization failed' most ppl have.
Any suggestions? IMAP is ON, Send mail is on IMAP, tried with another gmail account, same thing.

Korean language for ios (II)0 votos 2 comentarios
Waiting for the Korean support in ios for an incredibly longtime is really frustrating. I do not understand how come the Android version has Korean while ios version does not. Is it so because your engineers are lazy? There are already many requests for Korean ios in the forum.
Can you please add Korean?

SwiftKey not working properly2 votos 2 comentarios
I figured that on my Iphone 6+, SwiftKey is not working very well.
Issues started with some earleri iOS version about a year ago: When opening Safari, Facebook, Whatsapp or any other app that requires anything to be typed in, Swiftkey deliberately switched back to the preinstalled German keyboard on the Iphone. Hitting the Globe button to turn it back resulted in the same behaviour. It only worked out after the third or forth attempt. That sometimes did not allow me to react quick enough to critical requests for business purposes when seconds count.
iOS upates that followed in the meantime seemed to solve the issue, but since iOS 10.3.2 came in, the odd behaviour returned, plus, sometimes it does not even load the character interface of Swiftkey at all. Swiftkey is currently running on version 2.0.2 on my Iphone.
Rebooting the Iphone, de- and reinstalling SwiftKey as well as even resetting the Iphone to factory defaults and bringing in all my apps and settings again did not solve the issue. This is very unnerving!
Do you have any advise on how to solve that?

Auto-capitalization of "I"7 votos 2 comentarios
I'd like the uppercase "I" to stop being predicted. I've removed it a bunch of times but it still brings it up. I just want to use lowercase "i" from now on. Is the only way to do this to continue to manually correct it on the prediction bar? It doesn't seem to be working.
How to remove the annoying emoji keyboard1 voto 2 comentarios
First of all: what a great product! But there is one thing that drives me nuts: how to change languages easily. I'm aware there is a setting to disable the emoji keyboard and supposedly it should replace it with the standard globe icon, but this is not exactly true as it behaves differently.
Let's assume I'm in swiftkey (where I have EN and DE as languages). Now I want to write my mum in Spanish, how do I get Spanish keyboard? On iOS keyboard I would just hold the globe and swipe to Spanish (hold->swipe). With swiftkey I have to click once the globe which brings me to next language which is the iOS emoji. Now I have to click Abc, then hold the globe and finally I can pick Spanish. What a horrible UX (click->click->hold->swipe). I'm sorry but the ios emoji picker is so much more a delight to use, so I would like to just remove the swiftkey custom menu altogether and access any keyboard directly. Is that possible? Thanks in advance.
New beta update with swiftmoji0 votos 2 comentarios
After one day, I can say I don't much care for this update. The emoji are too small and some have been removed. In particular, the musical notes. This build just doesn't seem friendly to me. I liked it better the way it was. I'm not a big user of Swiftmoji anyway. I don't mind the Swiftmoji integration, but it's a hassle to search other emoji. Some of the dark ones I can't even see.

Can I change the Google Account associated to SwiftKey?0 votos 2 comentarios
Is it possible to change the google account associated to SwiftKey Cloud?
I have recently changed of Google Account, so I wanted to know if it is possible to migrate all my data, being it keyboard dictionary, my tap map, etcetera, move all that to my new google account. I actually had already deleted this email account and only then realised I lost all my data for SwiftKey, so I had to open a special request for Google to recover my account from their archive servers, however, I would really like not to have a separate google account just for SwiftKey.
Can I get SwiftKey to not learn a word?0 votos 2 comentarios
Is there a way to prevent SwiftKey from learning a word, and not popping it up as a suggestion? I don't want SwiftKey recording passwords which I type into Password Safe. And I don't necessarily want it to remember every single URL I visit (ahem.)
Punctuation key0 votos 1 comentario
I have swiftkey version 2.7.8 on iPhone (ios 13.5) and ipad (ipados 13.5).
On iPhone the layout features a multipurpose punctuation key to the right of the space bar, which I find very useful. On the ipad this position is given to a second key to switch to numeric keyboard, which I do not need. How can I get the multipurpose punctuation key on ipad?

Flow doesn't work on my iPad mini0 votos 1 comentario
I've installed SwiftKey and given it full access on my iPad mini 5th generation. But flow won't work.
I've checked every step of the installation instructions and even some things that aren't mentioned. I've compared the installation on the iPad with the installation on my iPhone, where flow does work. I've found no clues at all.
It's an iPad mini 5th generation running IOS 13.13.1 (current version).
Anyone got ideas?
Support for german language and layout1 voto 1 comentario
I realy like SwiftKey.
It is one of the best.
I am not always typing in english somewhere on the internet, i also write texts. In german.
And for german. SwiftKey right out sucks.
It is the worst thing i ever saw.
1) It has not german layout at all.
Your popover selection window is ... horrible ... compared to real keys.
Let me show:
This is from the Apple keyboard.
But your's simply refuses to offer the proper keys!
Can you please finally fix this?
2) As a crude workaround, you offer some horribly popover menu
Now, this can only be a workaround, it is not usable for someone writing in german!
But anyway, this thing is wrongly configured for German!
If you hover over an "a" you get the pop-up, but the next key up is again the "a"!
The "ä" which you are searching for is far to the right, you need to search it in a long list.
The fix is easy: Just set the "ä" as the first character shown above your finger, when you long press!
Cannot understand why this is still not fixed.
But please don't forget: The popover is only a workaround. We still need a proper german layout as shown above!
External Keyboard want to show only word predictions0 votos 1 comentario
I am using an external keyboard and want to hide the Swiftkey keyboard, but show the word prediction bar. Doesn’t sound like much, but on the bar you can see the ios text replacements you have entered. While showing the keyboard, I can type a short combination of letters and/or numbers, which ios translates to a whole paragraph. I use this quite often filling in templates and sending emails, but it is annoying to see this huge keyboard that takes up a large portion of the screen.
Using spacebar to insert autocorrect word on iOS1 voto 1 comentario
On my Android phone, I had the option to use spacebar to insert the autocorrected word, rather than tap the word. Now that I have switched to Iphone, that option doesn't appear to be available any more. Can someone help me out on this, as it greatly reduces typing speed.
iMessage switching to emoji keyboard (iOS)0 votos 1 comentario
iPhone 6S, 13.1.3, latest SwitfKey.
Running iMessage, if I lock phone (not power down, just sleep) and then unlock the phone (or receive a message) the keyboard will default to the emoji page of the Apple keyboard. It's been doing this since iOS 13 arrived. Very frustrating to have to switch back to Swiftkey so frequently.
A search for anyone else with this problem only turned up one question on Reddit with no replies.
Any ideas or fixes for this?
[Feature request] Armenian keyboard support in iOS and keyboard layout options for Armenian language in Android1 voto 1 comentario
Swiftkey, while being a superb app (using both on iOS and Android), does not support my native Armenian on iOS and the keyboard layout options on Android are quite limited.
The major keyboard layouts for Armenian language are Armenian Eastern, Armenian Western and Armenian Phonetic.
Armenian Eastern (used by people in Republic of Armenia):
Armenian Western (used by people in Armenian diaspora):
Armenian Phonetic (used by people lacking computer skills and migrating from the old KDWin software for Windows PC):
I would be very thankful if you implemented these options in the iOS and Android versions of the app. Thank you in advance.

&, %, @, etc. Symbols on iPhone ABC Keyboard6 votos 1 comentarioI 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,
