No response from customer support! Respondida0 votos 1 comentárioI have a problem which requires help from the support team. I have sent them a message about a week ago - no response. Just sent them another one 7 hours ago - still no response. Is there any other way to contact them to ensure my problem is resolved? This is very disappointing :/
Parkinson's disease support. Respondida1 voto 4 comentáriosIs there a way to turn off swipe entry and gesture navigation? Also, can the keyboard enter typed input without any physical contact. That's creepy. All of these are very annoying and will mean that I can no longer use the smartphone if Google forces these changes these radical UI changes on me! Please I need it for emergencies. It already took me over 20 m minutes to make this post. I'm desperate!
Syncing doesn't work Respondida0 votos 1 comentárioI just purchased an LG Stylo 5 phone but still have my old phone (Samsung Note 8). After installing SwiftKey, signing into the same account, & trying to sync, I still show 116k taps etc. on the old phone but only 90 taps etc on the new phone. How do I sync the new phone so all my data from the old phone goes to it?

Dedicated 'Ç' key on pt-PT keyboard Respondida0 votos 1 comentário
Will it be possible to add the "Ç" key next to the "L" key?
See more at Wikipédia link:
As a suggestion, after selecting a previously typed word, it could be possible using the Shift key, for example by selecting the word "time" and using the Shift key once the word gets the first capital letter "Time". When you press the Shift key again, the letters are all uppercase, "TIME".
Long press on period doesn't work S10+ Respondida0 votos 5 comentáriosSince the last Android 10 update last week, if you have gestures enabled on Samsung Galaxy S10+, the long press on period doesn't work half of the time. It is really annoying! :( Temporary solution: enable gesture hints or disable gestures and revert back to navigation bar. Both are annoying though for power users.

Unable to sync from old phone to new Respondida3 votos 15 comentários
I've been trying to save all my swiftkey data from my old S6 to new S8 and it logs into my google account without any issues, it says it is syncing, but the data does not transfer from my old phone to the new one.
I've got quite a lot of swiftkey data from maybe 2 years of useage, so I'd like to sync it if possible. Can this be done? I followed your guide below, but this does not work for me, the new phone still has no predicted words, no words completed, no words flowed etc after syncing.
My google account is set to sync app data if that makes a difference?
Can anyone guide me in the right direction please?
I want to disable all emojis. Help! Respondida17 votos 61 comentários
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.
Why do I get a pound sign instead of dollar Respondida2 votos 8 comentários

Tenho um LG G4 h818p dourado e ao fazer uma digitação, logo fica com zoom na tela toda e as teclas ao digitar não são as correspondentes. A tela nas bordas fica com uma linha laranja. Com o teclado padrão isso não acontece.

[Feature request] Voice recognition WITHOUT Google Respondida7 votos 6 comentários
Hi all. I've been using SwiftKey for a veeery long time and it's amazing. I really liked the voice integration but a while back I started to get away from Google products (yes, Android is from Google but you can strip quite a lot of their stuff from it) and I (sadly) discovered that after removing Google Search app the voice dictation stopped working.
SwiftKey is now owned by Microsoft and MS has it's own voice recognition. There is also a Common Voice project from Mozilla (https://voice.mozilla.org/) which should be more open/transparent (though they are only collecting data / training for now).
Having alternative voice input would be awesome!
Two simple design flaws which want me to replace SwiftKey Respondida4 votos 12 comentários
I am using SwitfKey for a long time, but desperatly want to switch to mostly any other keyboard software, because since years, there are two catastrophic design flaws in the app, which could be solved in minutes of programming time:
1) The optional numeric bar just shows the numbers 1 to 0, and has no second layout... why! Every keyboard on this planet has easy access to ! for example on number key 1, but not SwiftKey
2) For Germany layout, it is catastrophic to access most important keys like ö ä ü ß in SwiftKey. For example: if you hold key u, the default selection is "<" instead of "ü" ... WHY!!! This is the most annoying thing for German customers.
Please change default selection for uoa to üöä.
Give easy and fast access to !?ß. The access through . is a mess and breaks usage flaw on normal keyboards.
Give option to manipulate the key layout and change keys you want to have.
Cannot remove word prediction Respondida4 votos 16 comentários
SwiftKey started suggesting me "c è" everytime I press "c", which is annoying as what I really want is "c'è" with the apostrophe (Italian).
My problem is I cannot get rid of that "c è" as if I long press the suggested word, nothing happens. Long pressing other words works, so this is really strange.
Thank you in advance,

Lost all of my clips from clipboard Respondida1 voto 6 comentários
Didn't know until recently that the three lines on the keyboard gave you access to the clipboard. Well, the first time I found it, all of my clips were there. After going back to the keyboard, I tried it again, this time hoping to paste something. But when I went to the clipboard the second time, all of my clips were gone!
I thought maybe the keyboard was just acting up, but when I went through the actually SwiftKey app, all of my clips were missing from there as well!
What the heck happened? Can I get them back?
*I didn't download anything or do a phone or app update of any kind before this happened.*
Why is Swiftkey asking for my location? Respondida3 votos 5 comentários
I really like swiftkey and I've used it for years, but things like this bug me: What possible reason would SwK ask me for access to my location? How is that in any way a benefit to me? Just wondering how they justify such a request.

Old Phone to New Phone Android Respondida24 votos 63 comentários
I'm struggling here to transfer from my Samsung 6 to the new Samsung 8 with all my predictions from the old phone. First I did a backup sync on my old phone, and then did a backup sync on my new S8. Nothing happened. Do I need to delete the app on my old phone? Dose anyone have an answer.
I will say that the tech support is very weak in regards to the response time, and information. I'm surprised being a Microsoft owned product that they don't offer better support as I have been waiting more than three days for my answer.
Thanks for your response

Delete Options [suggestion] Respondida4 votos 7 comentários
I've recently switched to Swiftkey because I'm having some problems with Gboard. The one major thing I miss from that, however, is its wonderfully simple and intuitive 'gesture delete' function. You should really, REALLY check it out to see why it's so much better than just pressing and holding the del key and hoping you can release it in time to avoid deleting more than you wanted to. This is particularly important on a system like Android that doesn't offer any ctrl-z type undo options. All you do is swipe left off the del key until the text you want to delete is highlighted, then release to perform the delete. If you swipe too far you just have to slide back towards the del key a bit first. Simple!
I also find it mightily frustrating that the last word entered by flow typing can't be deleted with a single tap on the del key. That's how every other 'swipe' type keyboard app I've tried works and it seems pretty obvious to me it's how it should be. I realize this has been asked before and rejected, but I'd urge you to reconsider and at least make it an option.
