For my phone (like a Samsung) with a AMOLED screen, I would like a completely black theme with the primary and secondary keyboard letters and symbols white. To save battery and also be functional.

One Handed Keyboard16 voti 8 commenti
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.
Number row and other features missing on iOS16 voti 25 commenti
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?

Bitmoji15 voti 10 commenti
It would be really awesome to have Bitmoji integrated with SwiftKey. I've been vying for this feature suggestion for a while. It's a really great feature. Hope Microsoft will consider it in the future. Thanks for listening.

Feature Request - Longpress and secondary keys15 voti 9 commenti
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 😊

Why is Swiftkey so much worse on iOS compared to Android14 voti 7 commenti
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
Turning off Transliteration14 voti 8 commenti
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.
Why STILL no Chinese for IOS??14 voti 9 commenti
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?
Dictionary won't sync13 voti 37 commenti
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?
My saved words do not want to download after reinstalling the application.13 voti 22 commenti
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?
Feature Requests for iOS - Make SwiftKey as Great as on Android!13 voti 4 commenti
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,
IPA symbols13 voti 5 commenti
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.

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:
Personal Dictionary Not Working12 voti 10 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.

[Duplicate] Cursor Control - Spacebar Con risposta12 voti 3 commenti
I was wondering if in addition to the 3D touch cursor control there could be a cursor control function integrated into the spacebar?
It'd be similar to touch ID in the sense that it would understand the gesture as a distinct one.
It would require a clean swipe to the left or right starting on the spacebar to activate in order to prevent any unwarranted cursor control during multi-word swiping.
I believe it would suit the flowly nature of SwiftKey and be a welcome option for those either:
1) wanting cursor control without the pause 3D touch demands.
2) enables iPhone SE users to have SwiftKey offer another feature stock doesn't provide enhancing the SwiftKey flow optimised phone size.
Cheers for giving this a read either way and love the app guys!

More than 3 predictive suggestions? Con risposta12 voti 21 commenti
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.
Don't add a space after a dot/period11 voti 3 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".
Auto Space after Punctuation11 voti 3 commenti
How about adding an option to toggle auto space on/off after punctuation.
It's a pain having to backspace to remove an unwanted space.
Can voice to text be changed to Cortana?11 voti 3 commenti
Is there any way to change the voice to text engine in Android? I would prefer to use Cortana, since I find Cortana's accuracy very good, but there does not seem to be a way to do it.
Turn off auto - cursor move Con risposta11 voti 12 commenti
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.
Swiftkey, please stop ignoring your community: Prediction is horrible. Add dictionary separation w/mult languages, please!11 voti 13 commenti
First, I noticed prediction lags. A lot. Especially if you type fast.
Now, please help me with this: 1. I don't use pinyin (Chinese input). I don't even have it enabled as pinyin. I use a different typing system (zhuyin system) and yet Swiftkey still predicts pinyin. But why? Why am I forced into this option? This leads to the next problem: Swiftkey likes to predict English words like "uber" into "uber" with an umlaut. This is equally annoying because the English word is not the same as the German word.
2. There's no way to tell where some special letters or modifiers are. For example, the German "ß?" Go ahead and guess where it's found without checking EVERY SINGLE KEY on the keyboard. And the Russian keyboard? I don't even want to start.
For a keyboard that is supposed to be convenient, it, somehow, manages to force you into multilingualism. What if I don't want to, though? I want to type in one language at a time for the sake of accuracy. This prediction really... kills.
