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.

Galaxy S8 keyboard types sporadically6 voti 19 commenti
Suggestions and feedback from new user1 voto 19 commenti
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.
Clipboard in Gmail acting weird.1 voto 19 commenti
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.
Keyboard not functioning on sites added to homescreen2 voti 18 commenti
I use Swiftkey for several years now and am very pleased with it.
I have created several small websites for personal use. Some of them require input in text or number fields. When viewing the sites in Safari the Swiftkey keyboard works perfectly. But when the same site is added to the home screen it doesn't always work.
Any ideas where the problem could be?
Add a delete key (delete to the right)9 voti 18 commenti
Would love the option to include a delete key on top of the present backspace key. A lot of efficiency gains could be had by allowing me to delete rather than having to tap and move precisely in order to use the backspace key.
Tldr: have the keys that allow me to delete going right or left.
[Tutorial] How to prevent your keyboard switching from SwiftKey back to the stock keyboard In evidenza-1 voti 18 commenti
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 voti 18 commenti
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?
Swiftkey refuses to show on spotlightsearch iphone0 voti 18 commenti
I love the swiftkey keyboard and have been using it since the first day ios8 came out. But there are some really annoying problems which needs to be resolved on ios.
One very annoying issue is that the keyboard just refuses to show up on the spotlight screen. Please see the image below. This does not always happen but I would say it happens more than average number of times I attempt to use the spotlight search.
Please see the attached image here:
I hope you will fix this in the next update. Even the time it takes for the keyboard to load it too much. The last update did say that you have fixed the high load time but I dont see much difference.
Sometimes the swiftkey keyboard opens high up.
When do you think these issues will be taken care of? Are these fixes going to released anytime soon?
Something went wrong. Reboot the Translator [Fixed]9 voti 17 commenti
An error has occurred, and therefore, difficulties arise when using the built-in translator in the keyboard. Constantly writes: "Something went wrong. Restart the Translator." This error occurs when I want to spell a word, or a sentence not in English. Help me please.

Unable to sync learned words between Android devices12 voti 16 commenti
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:

Swiftkey Backup Problem8 voti 16 commenti
Hello. My problem is about backup and sync. First I have to tell you these. 5 years ago I was using LG G3, and I moved on iPhone 6 Plus and I was able to use my old predictions. And then I moved on Xiaomi Mi 8, I was still be able to use all my learned data. And now I changed my phone to Oneplus 7 pro, and in the app I cannot see any of my learned data.
https://data.swiftkey.com/view-data in this website I can see my learned data, the words that I use most before on the other phones, but they won't show up on my new phone. 5-6 years of learned data was making my life easier but now I am not happy to use this app. So question is what should I do?
SPACE AFTER PERIOD ISSUE9 voti 16 commenti
Is there a way to stop the automatic space after a period?
Most of my typing is in regards to IP addresses, email address and the like.
Most of the time I do not want a space following the period. Perhaps an option in the settings area would help.
Input lag on Pixel 2 XL (Oreo 8.1)2 voti 16 commenti
I have just bought a Pixel 2 XL a week ago coming from OnePlus 5 running Nougat 7.1.1, and ever since I have installed SwiftKey I notice input lag very often when I'm typing. It will go away for a short while then come back when I'm typing. It's very sporadic and unpredictable. I'll be typing normally and there will be no lag whatsoever, but suddenly as I type there will be a slight pause and lag before the word is completed.
On my OnePlus 5 I had no such issues and suddenly it's getting very irritating on my Pixel 2 XL which is supposed to have the best software experience of any Android device. So I'm not sure why it's happening.
I have tried clearing SwiftKey app cache and it doesn't seem to help. Has the app not been optimised for 8.1 yet? I have been using SwiftKey for at least 7 years now and not had this particular issue in input lag.
[ASK] Disable Fullscreen keyboard when landscape6 voti 16 commenti
Hello, just the title said...
I have some questions,
How to disable fullscreen mode while my phone in landscape mode..
I asked the same question in SwiftKey feedback @playstore but no response yet..
I hope I can get the answers here..
One more thing, I just updated the app from playstore, and I get something (bug maybe) while I write this question, I just get something strange..
Everytime I write letter "i" the AI will convert to capital "I"
That's normal, but in my case the letter "i" is concatenated with "I" and I got "iI". That's strange..
And everytime I try to delete the "iI" to manually capitalize it, the capital "I" shows up from nowhere to the next of cursor location.
And it happened not only for the "i" letter but almost of all words that uses autocorrect function.
I hope you can understand what I mean.
Sorry for my bad English..
Keyboard doesn't pop up sometimes on iMessage0 voti 16 commenti
I saw a topic where they talk about it but the last post was from 2014 and I didn't see a solution.
Has the issue been resolved?
It's when the keyboard sometimes fails to pop up when switching to iMessage. Currently iMessage has to be quit and re-launched for the keyboard to pop up.
Don't add a space after a dot/period27 voti 15 commenti
Please deactivate automatic spacing after typing a dot, or add an option to NOT insert a space (" ") after typing a dot/period ("."). It is very annoying, as the dot is a common character in any text field or text area (think input fields and text editors, not just web addresses, code editors and alike).
Although this issue has been reported several times, there's still no reaction from SwiftKey/Microsoft for SEVERAL YEARS. Maybe the issue is not tracked anymore as it is associated with a "permanently deleted user".
parola con apostrofo o troncamento3 voti 15 commenti
vorrei capire come memorizzare termini. In pratica la tastiera swiftkey non memorizza il termine <po'>, che in italiano è il troncamento di poco ed è un termine molto utilizzato. Nella lingua italiana <po> non esiste. Esiste <Po> maiscolo, cioè il fiume Po.
E' un problema che posso risolvere in autonomia?

Personal Dictionary Not Working12 voti 15 commenti
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.

[Feature Request] Switch to incognito automatically10 voti 15 commenti
Can I make swiftkey switch automatically to incognito mode whenever I open specific apps or windows? Such as incognito tabs in Chrome and Firefox.
Otherwise, is there a (non root) 3rd party app that can do it?
How to change keyboard layout to my own custom layout9 voti 15 commenti
Hello, SwiftKey is the best keyboard, but the qwerty layout has flaws, as well as all the other keyboard layouts for thumb typing.
I have made my own layout, and want to test it out on SwiftKey :). Is there any way to add my own layout into the language select screen? Maybe if I rooted my phone?
I am willing to relearn a layout, and it's really easy for me to do. I want one which allows me to be sloppy and have really good autocorrect. I can text without looking, but every time I look at my screen, I see the same errors caused by certain keys being too close.
So yeah, I made my own layout, and if it's not perfect, I have an idea for writing a program which can figure out a better layout, and I will continually test each new layout.
And yes I've tried LOADS of android keyboards and also different layouts(qwerty, colemak, dvorak, azerty, etc). Swiftkey is the best for autocorrection, and the smartest so far.
I'm currently using JBak keyboard with my own layout, but it's autocorrect is rubbish.
Why go to so much hassle? because I know it's possible to text without looking at my screen, and I like being able to look up at the world whilst texting at a fast speed, followed by a quick proof read.
Red-underlined text3 voti 15 commenti
I installed SwitKey on my iPhone 7. I have set Italian as default language and I use two languages on my keyboard, that is Italian and English. In fact, on SwiftKey keyboard space bar I can see IT-EN.
Howeve, if I type by using that keyboard, in any foeld (writing an SMS or an iMessage, filling a field in a web form, creating a note, posting on Facebook), the text is ALWAYS underlined by red, as the words would not be recognized by proofer.
Reset phone, no personal words restored6 voti 14 commenti
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.
What do I need to do to get my predictions back?
[bug] Preceeding space is removed when typing a colon3 voti 14 commenti
Since last two version whenever I type a colon the preceeding space is automatically removed. This is super annoying when typing smileys. If I deliberately type a space and then a colon I expect the space to stay. As you guys probably know, most apps don't convert ":)" into an emoji unless it's surrounded by spaces. As of know I have to manually go back and add a space before the colon after its typed.
I kindly ask you guys to revert this "feature".
Keyboard size on Samsung Note 8 4K screen resolution2 voti 14 commenti
Recently I purchuased Samsung Note 8 and after some time of use I decided to try 4k resolution mode. Before I set up 4k resolution I was using the smallest SwiftKey keyboard possible, but after change of screen resolution to 4k even on smallest keyboard setting SwiftKey keyboard are appearing quite big!
Im letting you know about that with hope in future you will fix it (adapt to 4k), cuz Im really want to try use 4k resolution, but keyboard is just so ugly.... I cant acquiesce with that :)
