Yesterday, I updated my SwiftKey Beta keyboard to the latest version through the Playstore. While the application runs flawlessly on the regular (vertical / portrait) orientation, whenever I switch to the landscape (horizontal) orientation, the keyboard doesn't show up. 'SwiftKey Beta stopped' dialog is shown instead. I really need the landscape orientation for communication over some of my games.

SwiftKey Beta won't work in landscape orientation Completato1 voto 8 commenti
No special symbols displayed over the letters in incognito mode theme. Completato7 voti 7 commenti
In new incognito mode there are is a problem with the theme- no special symbols are displayed over the letters ('(' over the letter 'k', ')' over the letter 'l' etc.). In all the other themes symbols are displayed correctly, but in incognito mode they are missing.
It is problematic because You would need to remember where the special characters are located on the keyboard to use them efficiently. Please either add an ability to modify the theme of the incognito mode, or add the symbols to the theme.
[Fixed in beta] Constant crashing when using non-default theme on Samsung Oreo Beta Completato0 voti 7 commenti
On the Samsung Oreo beta if you have any theme other than the 3 default themes the keyboard crashes constantly anytime it tries to appear.
- Device make and model - Samsung Galaxy S8
- Device Android version - Android 8.0 Oreo
- Current SwiftKey version - Swiftkey Beta 188.8.131.52
- Steps to reproduce - Open themes, select any theme that is not default, crashes start immediately. If you open the app and switch back to a default theme the crashes stop.
- Any screen shots that help show the issue - no screen shots but I submitted feedback through the app
My keyboard is too big [Duplicate, Fixed in 184.108.40.206] Completato1 voto 7 commenti
Since getting this new phone (galaxy s8+ I have had to reduce the size of my keyboard twice. I am now down to the smallest size available to me yet my keyboard is actually bigger than it was when I started using this phone. It takes up over half of my screen and when I'm typing I can usually see only about two or three lines of text. Any efficiency I gain from ease of use and familiarity from years of using SwiftKey have been negated by having to constantly scroll up and down to see what I'm writing. I'm hoping I can get this remedied as I really like the product but, until I can relegate it to a reasonable portion of my screen, it is no longer usable for me.
Can't login to SwiftKey Account with Facebook Completato1 voto 7 commenti
The latest version of SwiftKey (2.0.0) on iOS 10.3.2 and 10.3.3 is not allowing me to log into SwiftKey cloud using my Facebook account (had no previous issue until the latest update to 2.0.0). Have attached the relevant screenshots.
After clicking on "Continue" on the "Confirm Login" screen, Safari leads to a blank page; and on pressing "done" I get taken back to SwiftKey with the on screen error message.
[Bug] Newest Beta update (220.127.116.11) totally broken Completato5 voti 6 commenti
The newest beta update (18.104.22.168) completely broke my keyboard. I am stuck using the Samsung keyboard because all swiftkey does is force close over and over again until I switch back to Samsung. This is a nightmare. Please help.
[Completed in 22.214.171.124] Employ 4-side adjustable margin to control keyboard size Completato2 voti 6 commenti
The use of keyboard margins will become more crucial to keyboard ergonomics with the current advent of diminishing bezels on the latest Android smartphones. This will have two major repercussions:
1: smaller bottom bezel will drop keyboard below comfortable position since hands still need to hold devices nearer towards middle
2: slimmer side bezels will mean fingers need to reach further towards palms to reach the furthest keys
The use of 4 adjustable margins is being proposed to replace the current system of fixed keyboard sizing. Adjustable margins would also tackle keyboard ergonomics on bezel diminished devices as it would allow users to size and place keyboard into a comfortable position. With bezels now shrinking on many new devices, there now needs to be a large bottom margin underneath the bottom row, and left and right right margins would keep thumbs nearer to the centre of the keyboard, where thumbs can reach with less strain. Adding the top adjustable margin would allow for key size adjustability to suit the varying finger lengths of users.
For an example of a 4 margin keyboard, please see the current Samsung keyboard for its S series devices. The Apple iPhone X also demonstrates the need for a large bottom margin for phones with little bottom bezel.
Thanks. I know you guys get quite a lot of flak on these forums, but it's clear you are endeavoring to deliver the best product you can deliver. Your efforts are at least appreciated by this user.
Possible keyboard size bug after v2.7.1 upgrade: Completato2 voti 5 commenti
I just upgraded to v 2.7.1 on my iPhone 5c. This resulted in the SwiftKey keyboard not filling the full width of the screen. (see screen shot below - note the gray region on the left/right edge of the keyboard).
Is it possible to fix this bug in the next release?

prediction & autocorrect disappears Completato0 voti 5 commenti
I recently downloaded the latest update of Swiftkey, so I'm currently running Swiftkey 2.0.0 and iOS 10.3.1.
The problem is that since this update, the prediction & autocorrect feature doesn't work anymore (feature that is the most important for me).
The "autocorrect" button is switched on in my settings, I tried to switch off/on my phone and to uninstall/reinstall swiftkey, to log off/log in swiftkey (also, since this operation, I can't log in anymore with facebook, same problem than this post : https://support.swiftkey.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115002075825-Can-t-login-to-SwiftKey-Account-with-Facebook?flash_digest=2a74e1df58f09ec0ef67ccd861729391949f6864&page=1 ) , but nothing works...

Backspace key issue with Outlook for IOS Completato0 voti 5 commenti
There appears to be an issue with the backspace key in SwiftKey when using the outlook app for emails within IOS.
To replicate the issue do the following:
Open an email sent to you.
Type some words,
Press enter TWICE (or more)
Type some more words
Now try backspace to delete those words.. It will now only delete one character per push at a time even when you hold the backspace key down,
The issue is not apparent when writing a new email, or replying to an email but you've not pressed the enter key twice.
IOS 10.3 (but was an issue before this version)
Outlook 2.20.0 (But was an issue before this version)
SwitftKey 1.6.3 (But was an issue before this version)
Any thoughts? I've raised a support query with the Outlook app team too .. but seeing as you are both MS owned, so perhaps you can talk to each other (trying not to laugh when typing that! )
First Word I type is deleted [Fixed in beta 184.108.40.206] Completato-1 voti 5 commenti
Samsung - Sm-g930v
When I'm typing the first word in the chrome URL bar it erases the word and replaces it with 'I' which is the first word it predicts, when i start to type the second word. I go back and delete it and it works fine. It does the same thing the next time i go to type in the url bar. Plus I get extra spaces in between words now. It never did this before
[Suggestion] Adjust the color of the navbar based on the theme. Completato0 voti 4 commenti
I really love SwiftKey and would like to continue using it, but there I have a big problem! Whenever I have the keyboard open the navbar on man Huawei mate 20 pro is white, regardless of the theme on my SwiftKey. I usually like to use dark keyboards, which looks horrible with a white navbar below.
I have tried third party navbar apps to fix the problem, but they are usually really buggy. I know that Gboard (which I don't want to use but light have to) adjust the color of the navbar based on the color of the keyboard theme, so it should be possible to fix?
PLEASE give us the option to remove the search bar from the tool bar! Completato2 voti 4 commenti
Why isn't this optional like everything else on the toolbar?
It takes up 1/3rd of the tool bar on my screen and has made the toolbar useless to me as I pretty much just have a giant search box tied to a search engine that I would never use.
PLEASE make it optional. Your app was once the most customisable keyboard out there, but now you are forcing Bing onto everyone who uses it. That's not only biased towards Bing, but it's also completely against your brand image to force something onto the keyboard without being able to turn it off.
- What about the people who do like it but actually prefer to use other search engines and are now stuck with Bing?
- Why are you being biased towards Bing? Windows was forced through a lawsuit to offer their users other search engines during setup of their internet browser as it was found to be unfair to the competition - isn't this exactly what you are doing?
- Why add a search bar to the keyboard when there is one on the android homepage, at the top of every browser and on most quick access tool bars on phones, tablets and PC's - think Cortana for example?
- What about the fact that most people just use voice commands on their phones to search?
- What about older people like myself who have really tiny phones?
- What about people who don't want to have a search bar?
- What about the lack of customisation that you've left your users with that was once your claim to fame?
- If you insist on making it mandatory to have it there, why can't you make it a button like everything else?
- If you insist on making it mandatory to have it there, why can't you make it smaller?
- If you insist on making it mandatory to have it there and you're unwilling to make it a button, why not at the very least make it shorter - then it could expand when you use the search box for you to type in rather than it taking up so much precious screen room.
- Why not keep with your brand image and make it customisable like everything else?
- Why not listen to your users before they switch to a different keyboard? There are countless other great keyboards these days that offer almost identical services, and most of your users probably don't even utilise the full extent of your app anyway.
Please do the sensible thing and make it removable. I don't want it, and clearly a lot of other people don't either as there are even articles on various websites about it...

Is an old Bangla layout retrievable? Completato0 voti 4 commenti
I don't know why Bangla keyboard layout was changed to such a horrible one. Here are two screenshots of the two versions with different layouts -
The previous layout was much more intuitive than the latest one. There are certain aspects of Bangla alphabet and Bangla writing system that can be more easily executed in version 220.127.116.11 layout.
Is there any way the old layout could be retrieved?

Did something recently change in the predicted text? This keyboard for several years was flawless and it corrected near every mistake.

[Feature Request] More iOS themes Completato-1 voti 4 commenti
So, I've had an Android prior to ios - even purchased themes. Obviously, Android has way more than ios and I'm hoping that this is something that is going to be changed in a future update. No offense but these themes are a tad bit lame after awhile it'd be nice to have a change of pace. 😁

How do I go about complaining about a Gif I have seen on swiftkey keyboard? If you type in 'in the night garden' which I would like to emphasise is a CHILDRENS TV programme, an image of iggle piggle comes up with a nazi swastika superimposed over the character. I am absolutely sickened by this and would like it taken down as it is distasteful and inappropriate. Why has this even been aloud on such a large platform? I have a screenshot that I would like to email to yourselves could you perhaps provide me with an email address?
