Is it possible to add a feature where the keyboard animates while closing (E.g. Sliding Down) and opening (E.g. Sliding Up)? Thanks for reading!

Themes Respondida2 votos 7 comentarios
I've been a SwiftKey user since the very start of the app. I have used it in Android and iOS. One thing is missing: Why not let the user create their own theme? At least the ability to choose colors and fonts.
This would push your keyboard over the top!
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.
Mappable Keys, Long-Presses & Long-Press Presets?3 votos 2 comentarios
Hi. I'm giving SwiftKey a very thorough beta test, and want to provide my feedback.
Literally one thing is driving me nuts, and that is the inability to map the character we desire into each key's long-presses. I see people all over complaining non-stop about where keys are positioned, and yet SwiftKey promotes itself as highly customizable with a target audience of those who are transitioning from default OS keyboard configurations, and have often trained themselves to use those configurations. I don't know about you, but I'm a tech guru and it takes "many months" of continuous work to remap my brain on the position of where the special characters are located.
I believe there should be, first of all, Presets on what Samsung keyboard, Android keyboard, and all the other default OS keyboards have mapped for long-presses. SwiftKey can choose to keep their configuration in their preset and even make that the default configuration, but I'm here to say that the absence of this feature is one of the largest reasons people do not want to transition to SwiftKey.
Second, there needs to be the ability to map long-presses to whatever characters we desire. More prudently, the ability to map even the MAIN keys to what we desire. Imagine no more disgruntled hate speeches on why "this or that is not positioned there"
Everyone cannot agree on the same configuration. Please consider this in your future updates.
Swiftkey on Samsung S6 Lag-1 votos 0 comentarios
I recently got a S6 less than a month ago, and I feel the Swiftkey on this device lags at times. Pressing the symbols button leads to nothing, which makes me hit the button several times before it actual works.
Anybody know how to fix the lag? Device is 3-4 weeks old!
Gesture mode swipe down to hide broken Respondida0 votos 8 comentarios
Since (unknown update), the gesture mode swipe down to hide does not work in 99% of the tries. The keyboard tries to do anything, but hiding, types the first key the finger touches the moment it hits the display, without even starting a gesture recognition, or does whatever.
Please fix this, it's really annoying, because the damn keyboard has no close/hide button. There are thousand of forms which does not trigger a close button, for example when you want to write a rating on the Play Store, and the damn SwiftKey is in the foreground, over the input test field.
Asked a friend to try, and for him it's broken too.

Few problems with Chinese input1 voto 3 comentarios
1. Fuzzy Chinese can't be turned off. I already turned off all the fuzzy options but still, when I type in jianpin, it turns into one fuzzy Chinese character. For example, if I type "gsm", it returns 干 instead of 干什么。
2. The input never learns new words. Same example as above, I've typed "gsm" so many times but it still doesn't remember what I what it to be.
3. A little improvement would be great : when I type one character, in the bar that I can choose characters from, there are only 4 choices in a row. It would be better if one single character can take less space and make more characters in a row.

Correction when cursor is in the middle of a word replaces the part before cursor instead of the whole word.3 votos 2 comentarios
When I want to correct something in the middle of a word I place the cursor on the spot (for example if I forgot an 'a' somewhere).
I then get a prediction, and when I press spacebar, only the part before the cursor is getting replaced. Not the part behind the cursor.
I find that really annoying. Samsung Keyboard replaces the whole word in that case. So I can type on.
Now I need to manually erase the part that is being left behind the cursor.
Is there a way to configure it the way Samsung keyboard handles it?
Keyboard doesn't retract sometimes0 votos 3 comentarios
This happens random and seldomly, but it does.
Sometimes when I have the keyboard open, and switch to another app, the keyboard doesn't retract.

Unable to install Spanish language0 votos 1 comentario
When I first downloaded and installed this app I was able to select Spanish. However for totally unknown reasons my Samsung Android phone continually switch the keyboard back to Google. Now when I attempt to select Swiftkey I don't get any any option to select the Spanish keyboard. I have uninstalled and re-installed twice without success. There is no place for me to select the Spanish keyboard. This is lousy software totally lacking in logical intuition. I cannot imagine what kind of mentality wrote the code for this rubbish. .
Arabic Layout has too many buttons for smartphones1 voto 3 comentarios
Arabic layout has too many buttons for smartphones, but it seems suitable for tablets, as i is almost identical to real physical Arabic keyboard, which makes sense, but buttons gets too crowded, small, hard to type,inaccurate and slow to type.
You can easily add another layout with one less character in each line, and make it as another Arabic layout, like name it "Smartphone Arabic" and he original one "Tablet Arabic"

Suggestion for improvements. Respondida0 votos 6 comentarios
Hey first of all this is the best keyboard available in the store. I have been using this since 2 years that's almost when I started using Android technology.
Now secondly, I have a suggestion for track button. It is very difficult to move the cursor by one or two character. And if the phone has small screen then it is quiet impossible to move the cursor by 1-2 characters. Recently while using an app known as "Mobile C" which have it's own keyboard, I came across a great feature of track button. This made it quite easy to move the cursor for short distance. It would be cool if you consider to add this feature in your product too. It's quite useful. Now I know that our keyboard has navigational buttons. But it makes the keyboard look big and occupy more than half of the screen. So please consider my suggestion.

Feature Request - SwiftKey Beta0 votos 3 comentarios
Hi, I really love how SwiftKey works and learns personal words automatically from SMS/Gmail/Facebook etc.
It would be really nice if a whatsapp option is all so added in the *Learn From* section.
People nowadays rarely use sms and most of the communication happens through whatsapp.
Kindly message me if there is any workaround for that as well.

Hello. Wouldn't it be nice if we could add our own emojis? It would be great if we could use a picture file and with the help of swiftkey make it as a standard little emoji.

Keyboard not opening Respondida0 votos 6 comentarios
Hi, it seems my keyboard will not open for some odd reason, I've rebooted my phone several times, and nothing seems to be working, I'm using the Google keyboard for the time being. Whenever I try opening the Swiftkey keyboard, nothing happens. I hope someone can help me with this, thanks!
Suggestion - editable space bar0 votos 1 comentario
Double taping space bar can make a period. Would it be possible to extend the feature, making it possible to choose a different command (we all have different communication techniques) like a dash (-) or with spaces ( - )... a + sign or whatever. Maybe a small point, but in the search (hunt) for faster and more intuitive typing happits, using a fragment of a second instead of 2 seconds, counts a lot in the long run :).

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.

A suggestion1 voto 0 comentarios
I type a letter. Three words appear in the suggestion bar. I type another letter. Three new words appear in the suggestion bar. Sometimes the same word appears both times. In those cases, don't move the word from one position in the suggestion bar to another. If the same word(s) appear in consecutive suggestion sets, make them stationary. Sometimes, the eye sees the desired word in the suggestion bar but the finger types another letter and the word moves. When the finger goes to tap the word it has moved and the wrong word is typed. This is very annoying.
Swiftkey keyboard won't resize when rotated. Landscape=Large Portrait=Small Please help0 votos 4 comentarios
I've had my Swiftkey keyboard sizes set differently for landscape and portrait for years.
Portrait = Small and Landscape = Large
Swiftkey has always toggled between sizes when I rotated my phone.
All of a sudden, Swiftkey has stopped size swapping when rotated,
on 2 different phones. (Galaxy S6 and LG G6)
Forum search resulted in no matches for this issue.
Yes, my phone display is set to "auto-rotate" and both the phone, and the Swiftkey rotates on my display.
But, Swiftkey simply has stopped changing keyboard sizes when rotated.
Thanks in advance.
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.
