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

[Feature Request] Arrow Keys row on top (or customizable)26 voti 19 commenti
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.

Access hamburger menu in password fields Con risposta1 voto 4 commenti
How can I see (and access) the hamburger menu in password fields?
In password fields, there are no predictions, so the top-line of SwiftKey is missing. Consequently, there is no hamburger menu.
Why do I want to do this? Because I would like to copy-paste a very long and complicated password (yes, I know, that's unsecure) from my password manager into an entry field in which the OS paste function is for whatever reason not working.

Galaxy S8 keyboard types sporadically6 voti 19 commenti
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.
[Feature Request] Add Vietnamese language28 voti 43 commenti
At my country (Vietnam). Many people use idevice to work, relax, and more... but have not any keyboard better swiftkey. I love Swiftkey when i used android phone. But i need iphone to use for my work. We had wait for a long time to use Vietnamese language pack on Swiftkey (ios version).

Constant hanging of the app or lagxtreme0 voti 1 commento
I have a hard time with SwiftKey in certain app. But more in certain phone conditions like heat. In many app... After a certain amount of words, it will start to lag. At a point of you could type a whole phrase without seeing a letter... You can see a process is blocking the action.... And It will be the same for 30 minutes.. Easy... And the result will be to loose the keyboard if not the app crashing. Other thing, my second best is Google's ... For one reason.... They know about French accent àéù and the low percentage of occasion it is needed in regular sentence and on the other side, when it's is almost certain it's going to be an accentuated letter. They also know that a qualificative will 99% never follow the subject. The contrary if it's a verb. They know when it will most likely be a verb and will not propose word finishing by É. French is difficult but my feeling is that your team don't walk the extra 10 inch so they would tell them self.... Fu## did I look stupid... But not Here... Here we modify when we're wrong and when corrected, it goes on the victory pile. I would like to collaborate on French by having a way or a tool to show you all wrong prediction and tell you why it is annoyingly irrelevant... Im Not saying you are stupid.... If You knew the respect I have for you, the company and sector of Activity. You see my comment from a friendly that will have the honesty to tell sad thing so you can go on and master better(tut tut cold shower) your mastery If I was younger , you would receive a resume and a plea to interview me. I am French and can communicate in English not badly but I understand how it work more than I can speak it. I generally see the side load of an exchange as well as making so there is none.... But Your autocorrector will change legitimate words, qualificative after verb or noun but not after subject. Anyway... Lol... It's fascinating. languages are not benign... They make it all happen... For more détail Ask for my adress. Find me on G+, FB,
I could help I think I'm no linguist but sincerely, I have a large knowledge I learn fast and I could be your outsider that will be honest with you by looking a few feet away, the problem that by the structure, have tho nose on it! Good day
No recent emoji [Not a SwiftKey bug] Con risposta1 voto 32 commenti
Since installing SwiftKey on my new galaxy S8, my recently used emoji are not being saved. When I switch back to Samsung's keyboard they work fine.
language select on space button suddenly gone?1 voto 4 commenti
I have for the longest time loved the feature of being able to switch between my native language (danish) and english with a swipe on the space button.
Today I wanted to add spanish to that list - on my new Oneplus 3T. I somehow ended up with only danish and no way of swiping to english OR spanish.
I think that this may be somehow related to how android handles keyboards, and the fact that swiftkey seems to be an implemented part of the oneplus OS and that android may have somehow overwritten the languages I am able to select from in Swiftkey?
I have added Danish, English AND spanish to both available keyboards (both gboard and swiftkey), but to no effect.
Have anyone else experienced this or know how to 'reset' the functionality without having to reset my entire phone?
Thank you very much in advance.

How to REMOVE Downloaded Themes listed in "YOURS" section? Con risposta4 voti 7 commenti
I downloaded and tried a few themes. I would like to have my favorite themes listed in the "YOURS" tab. However, all the themes I have tried are listed there which makes it very confusing.
Is there a way to remove the unwanted theme in the "YOURS" tab? I have seen in other post that I should uninstall Swiftkey and re-install again. This is not a convenient solution because this will still list all the junk themes from the premium pack and alll free thems I got under my account before the themes were free.
If there is no way, may I suggest a feature?
1) Rename the tab name from "YOURS" to Favorite
2) Add an option to remove a them from the Favorite section.
Thanks in advance

Help with voice to speech Con risposta0 voti 1 commento
Voice to speech does not work. Never has since I first installed it 3 months ago. I keep in touch with my family this way and really need this. When I tap the microphone icon it comes up but when I start to talk it quickly goes away. It comes right back and then goes away again. I really need it as I have a lot of numbness in my hands. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Is there a way to have a .com button? Con risposta4 voti 12 commenti
Hi there - I miss having the smart and handy .com key that I believe comes with stock Android. Is there a way to add it to the SwiftKey layout? It's pretty annoying that everytime I want to type .com I get a space and capitalized C after the period. A one-touch .com key would be fantastic!
Number Pad Layout Con risposta4 voti 3 commenti
I would like an option in the settings to display the number pad with 123 starting at the bottom instead of at the top. It is more natural for me. I also find that I make critical errors in typing numbers because the 123 starts at the top.
Could you please add this feature in the next update.

Can you fine tune autocorrect? Con risposta1 voto 21 commenti
I'm finding SwiftKey incredibly annoying for a few different reasons: firstly because it autocorrects words that are legitimately words (i.e. not nonsense from poor typing); and secondly because it autocorrects when searching from address bar in Google.
These two things are very undesirable behaviours for me and they drive me bonkers.
I don't just want to turn autocorrect off, though, because I do want it to fix up genuine mistakes.
Is there a way to tune the settings so that I can turn off the things I don't want??
