I use textra for messaging. It changes from dark to light mode. It would be nice if the keyboard did the same.

How about adding an option to toggle auto space on/off after punctuation.
It's a pain having to backspace to remove an unwanted space.
Can voice to text be changed to Cortana?11 votos 3 comentarios
Is there any way to change the voice to text engine in Android? I would prefer to use Cortana, since I find Cortana's accuracy very good, but there does not seem to be a way to do it.
Swiftkey, please stop ignoring your community: Prediction is horrible. Add dictionary separation w/mult languages, please!11 votos 13 comentarios
First, I noticed prediction lags. A lot. Especially if you type fast.
Now, please help me with this: 1. I don't use pinyin (Chinese input). I don't even have it enabled as pinyin. I use a different typing system (zhuyin system) and yet Swiftkey still predicts pinyin. But why? Why am I forced into this option? This leads to the next problem: Swiftkey likes to predict English words like "uber" into "uber" with an umlaut. This is equally annoying because the English word is not the same as the German word.
2. There's no way to tell where some special letters or modifiers are. For example, the German "ß?" Go ahead and guess where it's found without checking EVERY SINGLE KEY on the keyboard. And the Russian keyboard? I don't even want to start.
For a keyboard that is supposed to be convenient, it, somehow, manages to force you into multilingualism. What if I don't want to, though? I want to type in one language at a time for the sake of accuracy. This prediction really... kills.

Android Sync Issue (Not Working) - Samsung Galaxy10 votos 7 comentarios
So, I've had SwiftKey for many, many years and been through a huge number of phones, but never had this issue.
I have a few devices - one of them being an iPhone, the other being a Samsung.
I recently purchased a new Samsung (S9), and it seems although it shows the sync as being connected, it doesn't 'remember' any of the many words I have on there. It's an issue which I've never had.
I've deleted, reinstalled, clicked sync on both sides, ensured it's logged in etc. No luck.
I have a SwiftKey account for my synchronising. In the most recent update of iOS SwiftKey, it no longer seems to be an option, to log-in with a SwiftKey account, but only with Facebook, Microsoft, Google or Apple. Could this be it?
Any idea what it could be?

[Feature Request] Option to change font color and style10 votos 8 comentarios
I love that SwiftKey Beta finally have released Photo Themes, and given users a possibility to design your own custom theme!!!
BUT it needs the possibility to deside the COLOR OF THE FONT. Without it it's not very usefull. It would also be good if you add a way to determend how transparent the photo theme is.
Disabling Multiple Languages in Autocorrect10 votos 5 comentarios
I use SwiftKey (the paid version) with English and my native language, Malayalam. My language settings are as in the screenshot below.
My phone is primarily for work use, so most of my keypad usage is to type out professional emails, Slack messages, Asana updates etc. and the only acceptable language for such communications is English. I use Malayalam occasionally on certain WhatsApp groups; where I know all members are capable of reading and understanding the language. In earlier versions of SwiftKey switching between these was quick and easy via the spacebar, and the product worked very well for my requirements.
But of late, I see that SwiftKey is predicting words in Malayalam when I'm typing in English and worse still, these words are offered as the middle prediction:
This is incredibly annoying; and I have searched all over the place - but it seems like there is no way to disable this behaviour. At the moment I have removed Malayalam from SwiftKey completely because this "feature" is interfering in my work. My questions:
1. Is it true that I cannot disable this feature?
2. Is there a way I can downgrade to a version of SwiftKey that did not have this feature?
3. Is there any plans for adding a configuration option to disable this feature? If yes when will that come out?
[Feature Request] Add windows 10 support10 votos 12 comentarios
I like and use Your keyboard primarily for the Android but also for the Apple. L
On the other hand I purchased on IBM Surface tablet and was very discouraged to find they support almost no usable on screen keyboards.
I can give you the list of features of your keyboard that they don't support, and of course some features that I'd like you to add.
But the major thing I would like to do is ask why you, as a subsidiary of Microsoft, can not convince them to allow you to have an alternate keyboard for their Windows 10 Surface tablets.
Note: I would be perfectly willing to pay for a 'Pro' version if that's what takes to get it your software moved over to their package
[Feature Request] Switch to incognito automatically10 votos 15 comentarios
Can I make swiftkey switch automatically to incognito mode whenever I open specific apps or windows? Such as incognito tabs in Chrome and Firefox.
Otherwise, is there a (non root) 3rd party app that can do it?
Data not synced to new phone9 votos 10 comentarios
I got a new phone and installed the app and signed in with the account that I was using on my old phone. However, after running the sync operation, none of my old predictions are showing up. I still have my old phone and I'm able to confirm that both of them have backup and sync configured and both of them are signed in with the same account ID. Any suggestions?

Stop capitalization of "i" in non-English languages9 votos 1 comentario
When I use both English and Swedish language in SwiftKey it constantly auto capitalizes "i" even though I have selected the Swedish language/keyboard.
If I only have Swedish language/keyboard it doesn't do this. But I like to switch between English and Swedish, so having a single language enabled is not an option.
Please correct this bug, it's really annoying to constantly have to correct this when writing in Swedish.
I have noticed that this topic has been brought up for several years, maybe it's time to fix it?

Add this function of cut copy paste and select-all by sliding the finger from numberkey to X, C, V and A respectively.
This would be really really helpful and would be the best update till date that saves a lot of time of the user.

R rated search keyword results for Gifs9 votos 3 comentarios

Random letters, spaces and gibberish words.9 votos 24 comentarios
In this post I'm going to leave in errors in quotations and some corrected words as parentheticals to show "t" what's going on. Reading this post will probably be about as "r" frustrating as it is typing it out. I'm pretty sure this issue started within the past week, "u it" (but) random letters "go Vila" words and "r flags t" (spaces) began to pop up when "r t" using the flow "y y toxin" (function) of the keyboard. Sometimes it will even put in random gibberish words, and "y hovering" (sometimes) I just "have to u" give up and manually touch type things in.
Anybody else having this issue? Any ideas how to fix it?
I'm currently using a galaxy S7 (not the edge version).
Android version 7.0
SwiftKey version 126.96.36.199
Search for emoji9 votos 5 comentarios
A feature that I really miss from other keyboards (such as Gboard) is the ability to search emojis. I really love this feature and I think its better than emoji prediction. Please add this is a close future update!
Yes, the lack of this feature would be enough to make me switch keyboards, but I really like Swiftkey.

I have English (QWERTY) and Farsi languages installed. Prior to today I could choose between English and Farsi but now I have Farsi and English/Farsi. With the latter I get predictions in both languages and I don't want this. How can I get back to having English and Farsi separately?

Export Data and Reload to SwiftKey app8 votos 4 comentariosHello I'm not able to sync my old saved words on my new phone! I logged in on SwiftKey online and saw all my data. There is an export button. I was able to export all data. Is there a way to import all data back on SwiftKey app? Please fix this big problem. The whole point of the app was to store words and its not doing that when transferring from one phone to another :( please provide an alternative solution instead of blaming Google. I'm so frustrated.

Swiftkey Backup Problem8 votos 15 comentarios
Hello. My problem is about backup and sync. First I have to tell you these. 5 years ago I was using LG G3, and I moved on iPhone 6 Plus and I was able to use my old predictions. And then I moved on Xiaomi Mi 8, I was still be able to use all my learned data. And now I changed my phone to Oneplus 7 pro, and in the app I cannot see any of my learned data.
https://data.swiftkey.com/view-data in this website I can see my learned data, the words that I use most before on the other phones, but they won't show up on my new phone. 5-6 years of learned data was making my life easier but now I am not happy to use this app. So question is what should I do?
