Stop period/dot from forcing a space after it25 votos 26 comentarios
Currently using latest beta. I am a technical / computer person and therefore my writing vocabulary often includes things with period/dots in them that are not words (i.e. e.g. 192.168.1.1 www.vcu.edu and so-on). The constant forced auto-insertion of a space when I am trying to use a period as a dot, not as punctuation, is driving me crazy and often forces mangled/incorrect emails, texts, etc. I thought turning on the option to insert a period by double-tapping the space bar would turn that off - it did not.
I seem to recall in a previous version of Swiftkey there was the ability to turn off the dot/period from forcing a space after it.
I think when I tried another keyboard (GBoard?) it did not do that. However, I am used to the way Swiftkey works and would hate to switch to something else....
Can i turn off auto period?3 votos 26 comentarios
Im getting random periods all over the place. I have to back space in the middle of a sentence im trying to write all the time. Not sure what's going on. Ive been using this keyboard for years and this issue just started up a few months ago. I would deal it with but it's getting worse and bringing me to a typing crawl. Any helpful would be great!
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?

Punctuation error after updating1 voto 24 comentarios
After updating SwiftKey on my S6, if I pick predict word and hit space, no period. If I type it out it seems to work, most of the time. Im so use to not having to hit the period that it is driving me crazy.

SwiftKey isn't syncing my saved words.7 votos 23 comentarios
Basically the title says all. I switched from the Galaxy S7 to the Galaxy S10 and logged into my SwiftKey account using my Microsoft account (the same as I did on my S7) and none of my words are transferred to the S10. I know SwiftKey still remembers them, because I checked the "View data" page on swiftkey.com and all of my added words are there. Why won't they sync to my SwiftKey app on my S10?
Device make and model: Samsung Galaxy S10
Device Android version: 9 Pie
Swiftkey version: 18.104.22.168
Steps to reproduce: Just login using the same account from the other device. A word that should be saved, I have to add all over again. Basically starting from scratch.

My saved words do not want to download after reinstalling the application.13 votos 22 comentarios
Hi, I had to reinstall the SwiftKey application again on my phone. Before that I made a synchronization of my saved words. After logging in to the SwiftKey account via the website, all my saved words are still on the server. The problem is that the same account is logged in to the application on an Android phone, but I can't to download my saved words back to my phone. I'm mad at it because my dictionary has several thousand words that I need to re-enter now. Any idea how to solve it?

Emoji search (as in Gboard)23 votos 22 comentarios
It would be quite useful, if there were a way to search for emojis, when the Emoji button has been pressed.
It should be kind of like how Gboard does it, where you switch to Emoji mode and then you can search (eg. you type "cat" and see the cat emoji 🐈).
This is a feature request for the SwitfKey Android keyboard; I cannot use Swiftmoji, as it is english only and not available in Switzerland.

Unwanted comma's3 votos 19 comentarios
How can I stop unwanted comma's from cropping up? Also it causes the following word to be capitalised. I find it so annoying that I'm thinking about getting another keyboard. I've had this since it was a paid app, in fact I paid for dozens of keyboard looks before they just gave it away, free.
[Feature Request] Arrow Keys row on top (or customizable)25 votos 19 comentarios
Would it be possible to choose where the arrow keys row is (top/bottom/middle/left/right)? Currently they can only be on the bottom (regular layout) or in the middle (thumb layout) but both of these options are very inconvenient, as arrows get pressed all the time by mistake. For example, I constantly press arrows when intending to press Space and it drives me nuts. On the other hand, I like using the arrow keys. To me, the solution would be just to have the arrow keys on top, so that I never press them by mistake.
Galaxy S8 keyboard types sporadically6 votos 19 comentarios
I am a loyal user of the Swiftkey keyboard! Unfortunately the keyboard does not function properly on my new Samsung Galaxy S8. It jumps ahead a space mid-word then continues typing the word but at that point it is not a real word because it is the second half of the word. This is the case with about 50% of what I type.
Clipboard in Gmail acting weird.1 voto 19 comentarios
For some reason some of the saved clipboard shortcuts are not transposing in Gmail. For instance, I set 1 to be a shortcut for my signature:
RE/MAX Competitive Edge
Which worked perfectly here but in Gmail for some reason all it types is "2e". 2e. This is very recent. Within the past few days. I don't know why.
Disable flow AND gesture.20 votos 18 comentarios
Could it be possible to add a option to disable gesture input altogether?
I do not like using flow as it makes me type slower, so I put it in gesture and because of that, sometimes deletes words or lowers the keyboard which is very annoying.
I am just wanting you to add a option to disable it entirely. I know I would use it, and there has someone else out there too!
[Tutorial] How to prevent your keyboard switching from SwiftKey back to the stock keyboard Destacada-1 votos 18 comentarios
Dear SwiftKey users,
We heard several times that some of you may run into an issue that annoys you very much: I selected SwiftKey as default input method, and it will randomly switch back to the stock (OEM) keyboard
Reason no.1 is the RAM cleaner killed SwiftKey. The solution is very easy: add SwiftKey into the white-list.
More importantly: it also could because some of the phones' OS has special RAM management and battery monitor to control the usage of each app. SwiftKey Keyboard for Android supports 5 languages at the same time, plus the Neural (AI learning) technology for predicting next words intelligently might need a bit more power from your phone. This could cause unwanted accidentally killing of SwiftKey
How to prevent it?
Well, different phones have different OS, even if they're all Android, but deeply customized. Here I list some of the phones which ran into this issue.
Samsung devices before Android Nougat update and some other close to stock android OS phones: System Settings > Battery (Power) > Battery Optimization > tap "not optimized" and select "all apps" > Find SwiftKey > Choose "Don't optimize".
Samsung device after Android Nougat (7.0+) update: System Settings > Device Maintenance > Battery > Unmonitored apps > Add apps > check SwiftKey.
Oppo smartphones: Security Center > Battery > Enable Smart power-saving mode > Power-saving app control and management > Add apps > check SwiftKey.
Xiaomi smartphones: Go to Security Tab -Permission-Auto-start management - Add auto-start apps, check SwiftKey.
Hope this little tutorial can help you. Let us know if you have any other tips or tricks to help others out

SwiftKey has become a nightmare4 votos 18 comentarios
I've been using SwiftKey for years now, and it has become more and more painful, to the point that I'm a meme to my friends now due to the way I type if I don't read twice before sending.
First, it looks like SwiftKey went from correcting my typos to considering that my typos are the way words are supposed to be written. So it corrects the right words into wrong.
Second, the French corrector is pretty broken to begin with, there are even tenses it don't know. So I have to manually rewrite verbs, even if I had them right the first time, because SwiftKey mess with it.
Last of all, since I switched to a new A5 2016 recently, the keyboard sometimes erases one to two words while I'm typing, for no reason.
I also have the "SwiftKey closing while I'm typing" problem I saw elsewhere, happens on Textra and Facebook Messenger.
I use the last beta of the app, with swift off because it made the keyboard even more laggy and unpredictable.
I wanted to change app, but yours is the best in terms of customization and key placement.
As you could have guessed I'm French. Strangely enough (?) I had absolutely no issue typing this message. Is French the problem? Or the way your app learnt me? Both?
Please just get the basics right2 votos 17 comentarios
I just switched from android default keyboard to SwiftKey as I purchased it years ago and enjoyed it enough whenever that was on my steam powered Samsung phone.
It's still a nice keyboard but there is one very simple piece of advice I want to offer the developers:
Fire up the default android keyboard for a while. This is your direct competitor, the free, default application that your app purports to replace and supercede with superior features. So why is it then, that in upgrading to this app, I have to now learn how to type without a delete key. Sure, I have a backspace key, but when I'm trying to place the cursor in between two letters to remove a letter that SwiftKey aggressively inserted I can only delete backwards. Why? Why if the cursor happens to fall on the wrong side of the letter am I forced to fudge about with the tiny cursor that will barely register the difference between being in one place or the other. You're a keyboard, include the features of a keyboard. That means find a way to keep arrows and other essential keyboard functions like the classic delete key within easy reach.
This is without even getting into the bizarre way that the app spazzes out from time to time and starts duplicating words and inserting broken malformed crap into sentences.
We're talking about a keyboard here, heat maps and infographics are not what people usually have in mind when selecting what keyboard to use. People came here for a more accomplished and smooth typing experience. After many years of absence, seeing the same issues that were present multiple smartphone generations ago isn't really acceptable.
Please make your premium app better. Thanks.

Suggestions and feedback from new user0 votos 17 comentarios
I really appreciate details like adjusting sound and vibrate with really fine adjustment, which alternatives neglect.
Things I wish it had:
*hyphenation and colons, etc are added with a space making it difficult to add new hyphenated words.
*backspace has to be held down to delete wrong words. I realize this preference may vary but I've gotten used to a backspace resulting in immediate deletion of entire wrong word, not only by a long press.
*wish the top and bottom bars were smaller
*wish the top bar had more suggestions and or scrolled right
*when the accent and unusual characters menu is disabled I wish holding down a key double long still offered the accent and unusual characters which turn out to be really hard to access unless it's enabled. Alternatively one could long press the number option for additional key maps.
Overall a great feeling and functioning, intuitive, fun keyboard comparable to an apple product and that is a high complement.
Unable to sync learned words between Android devices12 votos 16 comentarios
Every time I re-install swiftkey on same device or install to a new android device my predicted words dissapeared! Even Backup/restore was ON on previous device and on the new device also, triggered sync many times on both devices!
This happened the second time for me between different devices, word backup never worked. What the cloud backup is for then? What is the purpose?
Before you say I turned off backup, my data exists in the cloud at data.swiftkey.com, but does not synced to any of new devices:
