Hi. After my unit was updated to Android P, when Swift keyboard is activated, the navigation bar (bottom) turns white, despite having the dark theme setted in Android. This doesn't happen with Gboard. I didn't have this issue with android 8. Am I missing a particular setting?

IPA symbols18 votes 8 commentaires
I wish I have the opportunity to use the symbols of the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA), and the symbols that indicate the "quantity" in Latin words (long and short), on all the vowels. I'm a student of linguistics and I think it could help a lot of people.

Feature Requests - User viewable dictionary18 votes 6 commentaires
I use SwiftKey for years now and I've got rid of most of the weird suggestions now, but it took extremely long and I had to remove lots of words every day for many years. And still I sometimes get suggestions like
"gaucho Hagan Hitchens Cecil Barco barstool Megan yap naval brouhaha..."
that nobody needs. And that after removing thousands of words from the dictionary.
I know that the dictionary must be somewhere in SwiftKey's app data, since it has to be saved offline somewhere. But normal users can't see/edit some binary file in a protected folder, so my suggestion is:
Please make the list of words that are currently in the dictionary available to edit in some form, maybe as a text file (although I doubt it could be opened with the RAM of a phone), maybe as a list with checkboxes to delete many entries at once, maybe in another form.

I want to disable all emojis. Help! Répondu17 votes 61 commentaires
I updated my app and there is a change I do not like. It used to be that you would long press the enter key to get the Emoji menu.
On pages like Facebook and Reddit, whenever I hit the enter key it immediately brings up the Emojis. I have to long press to hit enter.
It is not doing it here. When I hit enter it enters the new line. It seems to be limited to social media. The only other option I have seen is to have a dedicated Emoji key and then it makes other buttons more narrow and when I go to hit the dedicated comma button, it accidentally hits the dedicated emoji button.
I am fine with not having emojis at all. Is there a way to stop it from doing this on social media? It never did before. I love SwiftKey and I've use it since it was a paid app. I'm not liking this, though.

A search box for the emojis would be helpful. would save having to scroll through every single one to find what you're looking for
Why is Swiftkey so much worse on iOS compared to Android16 votes 15 commentaires
I've been using Swiftkey on Android since they days when you had to pay for it. Recently my job forced me to switch over to an iphone. The difference between the 2 versions is tremendous. Autocorrect works a lot more poorly but the main gripe I have is that you can't hold down a letter key to get every accent mark associated with it. Is there a reason for this? I continue to still use swiftkey since I'm used to the punctuation placement, but just seems weird that it works so poorly in iOS
One Handed Keyboard16 votes 8 commentaires
Is a one-handed keyboard in your product roadmap? If so, what is a realistic timeline on when to expect it? I will return to using it at that point and it will be my default keyboard indefinitely.
Why STILL no Chinese for IOS??16 votes 10 commentaires
this situation is really ridiculous - why is Chinese input available for Android, but after all this time and so many iterations and versions, it is still not available for IOS? Please don't tell us to keep switching with the IOS keyboard, that is not a valid answer.
When will Chinese, and especially Pinyin input for Traditional Chinese, be added to this app?

Number row and other features missing on iOS16 votes 25 commentaires
I was so far a happy user of Switkey on Android, but I've been forced (for professional reasons) obliged to switch my phone to an iPhone...
So I was happy to see that Swiftkey was available on iOS as well, but when I tried to get the additional number row on top of my keyboard, I saw that this feature was missing on the iOS version such as some others.
Is there any roadmap for porting this feature on the iOS version, and more globally for aligning the two versions?
Feature Requests for iOS - Make SwiftKey as Great as on Android!15 votes 5 commentaires
Hi Swiftkey Team,
i just switched from Android to iOS and the iOS Stock Keyboard is horrible. I've been using Swiftkey for years (also bought it long time ago) and the usability on Android is awesome :)
When i decided to switch to iOS I was glad to know that swiftkey is available for iOS as well. Sadly the User Experience on iOS is very poor in comparison to your Android Version.
If you could implement the following things, it would make the user experience a lot better:
- Special Characters as second Option for normal characters (best would be the same order as on android)
- seperate comma key
- enhanced QWERTZ Layout with dedicated umlaut keys (öäü)
- Adjustment of longpress duration
- 3D Touch for removel of whole words
- cursor selection through long press on space key
And I would REALLY Love to have the "Classic Dark" Theme back. I found it very helpfull that not every key has its own border, but the keyboard layout is kind of rastered.
Please think about the mentioned things. I am sure many people would love it!
Thank you and Greetings from Germany,

[Feature Request] Option to change font color and style15 votes 9 commentaires
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.

Feature Request - Longpress and secondary keys15 votes 9 commentaires
Hi, I've just switched from Samsung 6 edge to iPhone 7 (so I can use Apple watch for swimming & fitness etc), but I am seriously missing my SwiftKey keyboard. My floral one (not so fussed about the floral bits) has dual purpose keys, ie. Each one doubles up as a symbol plus - a real must of you have longer nails like lots of us ladies do these days, it has the 4 cursor keys at the bottom of the screen plus all numbers across the top. Why can't I get it or anything similar on iPhone? Be so kind if anyone can help on this? It's driving me nuts! Many thanks Louise 😊
Dictionary won't sync14 votes 38 commentaires
I just switched from the Galaxy S10+ to the Note 10+ and my dictionary won't sync. I see all my words are in the cloud when I look at my account data. When I force a sync it says last synced a minute ago. This is the first time this has happened when I've switched phones. I've cleared the cache, forced sync, uninstalled, reinstalled, force sync and nothing has worked. Is this a bug or am I running into some issues?

Turning off Transliteration14 votes 8 commentaires
Please provide an option to turn off transliteration in Hindi because we don't always need it. Also transliteration causes huge delay when you type using swipe. When I turn off Hindi and then use swipe to type then there is no delay.

My saved words do not want to download after reinstalling the application.13 votes 22 commentaires
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?
Turn off auto - cursor move Répondu13 votes 15 commentaires
The feature that I find the most annoying, and would like the option to turn off, is the auto move of the cursor to the end of the word. When I want to insert/correct a character, I press on the location within the word, and the cursor moves to the end of the word! I have all the arrow keys displayed at the bottom of the keyboard, so pressing on the location & adjusting with the arrow keys is super fast. Except the cursor jumps to the end of the word! I think this feature was added a couple of years ago. It still gets in the way. I haven't found a fast workaround, so an option to turn it off would be much appreciated.
More than 3 predictive suggestions? Répondu13 votes 21 commentaires
How can I get more predictive suggestions than the default 3? In the Czech language quite a lot of words are longer and differ in one or two letters at the end (such as překrásný, překrásná, překrásní, překrásně, překrásné, překrásno, překrásnou,...). The prediction then is useless if I anyway need to type the whole word. In the old times my Nokia was able to expand for me the whole list of other similar words to choose from.
Unable to sync learned words between Android devices12 votes 16 commentaires
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:
Personal Dictionary Not Working12 votes 10 commentaires
I've been using SwiftKey for several years with no issues at all, and have obviously built up quite a large personal dictionary. After factory resetting my Galaxy S8+ on Android 9.0, and re-installing SwiftKey, predictions from my personal dictionary so not come up anymore. I have tried all the steps on the troubleshooting guides on this website and have tried all the steps from other similar posts with no success. Are there any other steps I can try? This app has been so essential to me for many many years now and I can't even imagine losing all of the data that has been built up throughout the years.

Deactivate auto spacing after inserting a period ('.')12 votes 14 commentaires
typing web addresses into the address bar of the browser always inserts an auto space after hitting the dot key. Thus I always have to correct by using backspace and type again.
Same problem with other situations, where I do not automatically need an auto space after the dot, e. g., when typing mail addresses.
there a way ariund it and have a setting option, allowing to deactivate auto spaces after a dot?
