Syncing/Download of saved words to new device issue5 votos 0 comentarios
I can't restore my list of saved words (my data)5 votos 0 comentarios
I used Swiftkey on my Xiaomi Mi5 for several years (more than 5 probably linked to my google account and recently switched to a Mi5, but when trying to retrieve my saved words (My data) from the previous smartphone, I am unsuccessful.
When trying to link with the google account I don't have any correct word predictions like my Mi5. I have already tried to switch to swiftkey beta, but also to no avail.
The odd thing is that by accessing the "Swiftkey data portal", going to "View data", I can see every list of saved words to export. But they do not appear on my android.
I'm really frustrated with that, and if I want to start over with a keyboard, I'll probably choose to migrate to another competitor that truly provides this feature.
Broken Cloud Sync Android5 votos 13 comentarios
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.

Period Key5 votos 6 comentarios
Probably 85% of the mistakes I have to correct are the result of hitting the period key instead of the space bar. Can we have an option to move it, or make it a hard-press or long-press, or.....something. It's my only significant problem with an otherwise outstanding keyboard. Thanks much.
Option to remove space/auto cap after leading punctuations5 votos 1 comentario
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.
Gif finder filters out "inappropriate" words5 votos 1 comentario
Will SwiftKey ever implement a "bad word" filter toggle in the settings?
Currently, trying to search for gifs using...explicit or colorful language, only yields "No Search Results." This is silly at best, annoying at worst. Why the language filter?
Scaling issues with S9+ on WQHD+ resolution (too big)5 votos 3 comentarios
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+.
[Feature Request] Add Bing/Google search to SwiftKey5 votos 1 comentario
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.
Can't delete words from dictionary5 votos 4 comentarios
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!
Interrobang (‽) character5 votos 3 comentarios
May we please have the interrobang character, ‽, on our keyboards? Perhaps as another option when long-tapping the full stop key?
Emoji suggestions - Crystal Ball5 votos 1 comentario
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.
[Feature Request] Trackpad in Spacebar (Android)5 votos 1 comentario
This feature is requested a long time ago, and I need it. I want the possibility to move the cursor while swiping over the space bar. Arrow Keys are useless, because I always accidentally press on the left arrow key instead of the space bar. Add this, immediately, please!
Remove the incognito theme, please5 votos 8 comentarios
as a person which is using Czech language with a lot of extra letters ("ě, š, č, ř, ž, ý, á, í..."), the Incognito mode is perfect for me when I'm writing an SMS, because I can use normal letters ("e, s, c, r, z, y, a, i...") and my SMS is shorter and therefore cheaper.
However, I really don't like the incognito dark theme. Could it be removed and instead just left there my choosen theme? (I use the bright theme, which is perfect for me and I would appreciate to have this theme while incognito mode...)
Symbol layout5 votos 2 comentarios
Please add customization options for the symbol keyboard layout. The SwiftKey one is totally unintuitive - the normal symbol layout that's been in use for years didn't need reinventing, and it's one of the ways the standard Google keyboard is clearly superior for my use. The new layout completely trips up long-standing muscle memory for no discernable benefit.
Customize a key (feature request) - OR - Replace the Comma(,) key with Question Mark (?)5 votos 1 comentario
I've been using Swiftkey for years now, having tried many many alternatives and finding it far superior than other options.
The only thing that is missing is the option to customize a key. For example, replace a symbol with another.
I have almost no use for the comma(,) and I use the question mark(?) all the time and the question mark needs two presses which is annoying, and really slows typing.
I am guessing Swiftkey has statistics of people's keypresses, they can check frequency. My guess is most people use the question mark a lot more than the comma, so why not make it default instead of the comma (if not adding the customize feature).
Many thanks for the best keyboard.
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.

Swiftkey errornously capitalize 'i' in swedish scentence5 votos 3 comentarios
I have the languages English (US) and Swedish enabled.
Whenever I type a Swedish sentence, swiftkey will capitalize the word 'i' (which means 'in' in Swedish).
Swiftkey should be able to determine that it is in a Swedish language context and NOT apply English language rules.

How to stop capitalizing i5 votos 2 comentarios
I think I tried it all for SwiftKey not to capitalize my i's when writing in en/sr keyboard but no matter what I do mostly all my i's get capitalized after space and then I manually have to go back and redo them. I love using SwiftKey, it made my typing much faster and specially I love how I can mix and input some English words in Serbian and it automatically recognizes them, but it would be just perfect if there was an on/off switch for whether you want your i's capitalized.
[Feature Request] Add Android Wear support5 votos 3 comentarios
As it is possible to use 3th party keyboards on Android Wear if would be really nice if you would make it available.
First of all there are only a few language supported on AW therefore a keyboard which support more would be really successful.
Secondly all the words and usage statistics which the keyboard learnt on my phone and tablet could sync make it easier to type on a small screen.
Please if it is possible, make it happen!
Making a qwerty with Ç for portuguese5 votos 1 comentario
I would like to ask you to make available a QWERTY layout for Portuguese with the letter Ç, just like there's a layout for spanish with Ñ. It's horrible having to long press C everytime we want to put an Ç. Ç is as important for portuguese just as ñ is to spanish. Please make it available.
Login and Sync Issues4 votos 0 comentarios
I have seen several Forum entries and tens of 1 star reviews about this, so just to mention: The Backup and Sync is not working. It'd be nice if you'd, you now, react to any of the posts.
Another issue is the Web Login for both the forum and the SwiftKey Data page. I don't know if this is a recent development, but Chrome (both mobile and Desktop), and I'm pretty sure Firefox too, are blocking third party cookies. This seems to make it impossible to login with both Google or Microsoft (The Google button is grayed out and other login attempts result in an error that cookies are disabled). Virtually all other Websites I use seem to login with Google just fine, third party cookies enabled or not. For people not very tech experienced it will be impossible to login (maybe that's why I don't see hundreds of posts about the sync issue...).

Reset phone, no personal words restored4 votos 13 comentarios
I have been using sk since 2013 and have brought my predictions into new phones 2-3 times so I know my account has info. But when I restored this time I got none of my words that had been in my personal dictionary.

Text shortcuts4 votos 0 comentarios
I am a busy man, efficiency is key, but I've been using the default android keyboard since time immemorial. Stubborn to make its lackluster autocorrect system work for me. Swiftkey blows that out of the water BUT there's something seemingly easy to add but essential about the keyboard that's missing from Swiftkey and had saved me a ton of time in the Samsung keyboard. You guessed it, text shortcuts. They can help me write three letters that get replaced with a paragraph of text I'd pre-written and sent a thousand times. These are non negotiable to continue using your otherwise wonderful app and I'd be more than pleased to use it in the future should that feature be added
Thank you for your time
