    Can you please tell me how do I remove the prediction bar from SwiftKey? It's annoying, takes too much space and I don't need it. Most of the time I type in Serbian, and it's predictive abilities are non-existent due to a complicated Serbian grammar and gender/tense dependent suffixes that are almost always wrong in SwiftKey. Thank you.

    I have to use SwiftKey on my new Honor 9, but the predictions bother me. The time it takes me to evaluate your predictions is at least as long as it takes me to just write the word myself, and my writing would be even faster if I could remove the predictions and get a slightly bigger keyboard instead. So it's probably actually inefficient for me (and many others, judging by this thread). 

    Some people may like the function, but I don't see the point of forcing it on everyone. Especially not those of us who didn't really get any options (I wanted the Honor so I have to use your product). I don't think you should be dismissive of our criticism.

    The keyboard is fine, so if all additional functions were optional I'd be happy.

    The only reason you DO NOT allow people to choose whether or not to see the sugestions is because this arrogant company would give power to the users to stop sending the training data they produce every time they use the keyboard and select a suggestion. That is what we all users are doing, giving them high valuable data just for free!

    They simply won't let you customize that part, as they're not after how you like it, but how they make money selling data/predictions/this and that.

    Arrogant and awful, I just installed this since iOS 11 has keyboard lag issues and 3rd party apps seem to fix that - at a cost of 1 extra bar of text that's annoying, distracting and not required - I know how to type, in English, in Croatian, Serbian, German, Spanish and - heck - even in Russian. Why would I need some prediction when the languages I type 99% of the time have extremely complex grammar no Swiftkey can predict (gender, singular vs plural, tense, etc - all combined together in almost every word). 

    Horrible horrible, I never rate anything, but will give Swiftkey 1* on Appstore and Google Play, it's horrible arrogancy.

    I just bought a new phone today and discovered that I cannot remove this annoying bar from the keyboard? Are you even serious? It's totally useless and takes up too much screen space. Is there any normal regular customizable keyboard available for sony xperia or am i stuck with this crap for another 2 years or so? I know i should have done the homework but i really couldnt imagine that there will be such a small but highly annoying thing. Otherwise good phone... But the keyboard thing ruins a lot. :-(

    As I mentioned earlier, Gboard (downloadable from Google Play) will probably satisfy all your needs from a digital keyboard. Don't know if it works in your phone, but at least my Sony Xperia XA1 Plus is doing just fine.

    Thanks, I downloaded and installed it and it works like a charm :-) I'm now satisfied with that new phone...and I can write normally at least :-) it uses up less space on screen, but still I would advise to the company to make this bar removable if the user decides. 99% of the people I know don't really appreciate such forced gadget on their phones...

    Tx Candido, but looks like Swift guys blocked this way to disable langauge , without selected Language you can not go anywhere.

    I get message  <no keybaord language is set> , this is show stopper..... 

    They still want to drive us with this suggestions,  but thanks much for support !!!  

    We can't get too much optoin for free.  High contract theme is perfect.

    I'd be very much appreciated if there is an option where users can disable the predictive/suggestive bar. It is using a lot of space. Otherwise this keyboard is great!

    Please allow an option to hide or disable the suggestion bar. As Rahhman mentioned, having a saved record of recently typed words showing up on the bar can cause personal issues when allowing other people to use one's phone. I downloaded Swiftkey for its support of Japanese language, serviceable Dvorak layout, Emojis, and literally everything else BUT predictive text and suggestion bars.. There are SOOOO MANY features packed into SwiftKey.. The suggestion bar isn't the only notable feature.

    Rahhman, i think your wife needs therapy. That's not healthy.. And as for the swiftkey, had i known that prediction bar cannot be hidden, i would've chosen another phone. Try typing in my native language Finnish where there is a spoken language used in everyday life and a written ie official language. If you speak the written language for example on whatsapp where writing is considered speaking, you look like an idiot. And if you use spoken language in a job application, again you will look like an idiot. Like many have already said, we are better off without autocorrect/suggestions.

    Downloaded SwiftKey today - first alt-keyboard ive ever tried. Loved most of what it offered, but frustrated the prediction bar couldnt be collapsed.

    Searched online for a solution and came to this post. Not only is it *not* an option to remove the bar and save precious space we all desire, but you developers are telling us we dont know any better? I will NEVER use predictive text. Ever.

     

    Condescension, resisting legitimate suggestions and ultimately ceasing communication on the topic. Nice.

     

    Well, ill quicky be moving on then - finding another keyboard that meets my needs. FWIW, i created an account here just to remind you how unprofessional your approach to these customer inquiries were. Sucks that another good product will fall from user’s appreciation due to out-of-touch devs.

    Signed up just to comment here - I'm a new user of Swiftkey, and it is mostly great, but as others have said on this thread, this unavoidable prediction bar is a really bad decision.

    Sure, the bar may be useful for most users most of the time, but there are plenty of circumstances when you want to get rid of it. An example: I write (for a living) many hours a day, using a bluetooth keyboard on an android phablet, and I need as minimal  a full-screen writing experience as possible. On the plus side, Swiftkey is one of the few keyboard apps that builds in support for external keyboards. But on the minus side, the prediction bar - which is useful (if at all) mainly for the on-screen keyboards - won't stop jumping around at the bottom of the view as I type. It ruins my focus. I've even tried sticking tape over the bottom of the screen, but no good - the app has become unusable for me.

    To be clear, I do want to run Swiftkey autocorrect, because 9 times out of 10 it's right, for me, so I want it getting on with that in the background. I want the option of underlining spelling queries sometimes (depending on what draft I'm working on). But as a touch-typist using an eternal keyboared, I will never use predictive text, and given how simple it would be to build in a 'dismiss' option for the highly intrusive bar, refusing to do so is a weird hill to die on on an otherwise great app.

    I want to get rid of the suggested words bar, I never use it, it is much slower than my actual typing and it's taking too much screen space

    That's simply a joke. The fact is you monetize on predictions, you don't give a damn about he users, the facts are there, the users are asking for a (really fast to implement) feature since 2014. It's clear your answers are polite but fake.

    The only problem is I bought a phone with your bloatware installed. I'll use an other keyboard and I will tell anyone that swiftkey is an horrible piece of software. You can keep deleting my comment.

    I signed up just to comment as well. I too am not at all a fan of the suggestions bar. It takes up space and I "literally" never use it. I understand it is your mission to create a keyboard for swift communication. I also understand that "you" believe it is efficient to have the suggestions bar and completely ridiculous to want to remove it. However, the communication around this issue has been absolutely daunting. You have customers (multiple) requesting a feature and you respond by telling them their thinking is ridiculous? My efficiency comes from having more screen space to do what I want. I have not cared for the suggestions bar from day 1 and it is a little concerning that you cannot simply allow it to be disabled for those who want it to be disabled. Not to mention, it's not like we're asking for the entire thing to rebuilt from scratch. 

    Make it standard as already a part of the keyboard when it's initially downloaded. Make the switch hard to find. I don't really care but I am definitely going to be looking for a keyboard that doesn't disrupt my screen space with something I do not use nor have any desire to use. 

    I am not meaning to sound like a complainer or to irritate you with my response. I am just venting as a consumer since I know you have to read it. 

    Thanks for the years that I have utilized your app up until now. 

    Peace & love until this is something that can be done. :)

    Created an account just to reply. Predictions are annoying, take up space and are useless for all those who type in two languages. It's inappropriate for a staff member to be patronising about the perfection of their product. My suggestion would be to install and use Google Keyboard. You can't offer a good product if you can't even provide a basic tool.

    I fully agree with all the users above. WE DONT WANNA CHANGE YOUR APP, WE JUST ASK FOR A SIMPLE BUTTON. Is that so hard to make? Is it rly just because of the money you earn?
    Thats unbelievable weak and lame. How can you ruin the (probably) best keyboard in the smartphone-world just 'cause you won't make this ONE FEATURE everyone is asking for.


    I tell you what, I'm an influencer (in total ~12.3mio subs) and have contact to many other, way bigger influencers than me.
    You block this thema since 4 years, if you keep going to ignore our askings, then i don't care and will spend a few weeks just to mention EVERYWHERE AND ON EVERY SOCIAL MEDIA PLATTFORM, what kind of CRAP your company and your keyboard is. And i will tell my contacts to do the same. I have seen you got 100mio downloads on your app (mostly because it's the default keyboard on the newer phones i guess), thats a lot. But are you willing to lose at least 10-20mio of it? :) the choice is yours. And I will also do it if you delete this cmt, just to let you know

     

    You have to see that you just ruin yourself with your ignorance and your selfish mind. Do you rly wanna wait if someone comes up with the exactly same keyboard as yours, but with the features that everyone want and you are not willing to give?^^

    Do what you want, I / we warned ya <3

    I too am a Sony user who is stuck with this useless keyboard app because it's the default keyboard app. Here's the easiest and most obvious solution for everyone:

    Don't even bother with removing the suggestions bar, just go to Play Store, download Google's own keyboard app, Gboard, and then go to your phone's settings/applications and disable swiftkey. THAT'S IT! 

    Gboard is highly customizable, you can add and remove whatever you want. As soon as I found out that the suggestions bar can't be removed in Swiftkey, I dowloaded the Gboard and disabled Swiftkey and I'm happy with it since.

    You are garbage developers who deserve financial ruin for not listening to your customers.

    I had your trash software on by default on my new Sony phone, and have now removed said trash and installed Gboard instead as mentioned by Eren Sözer.

    Thank you Eren, and thank you "swift"key for making things so simple; DELETE THIS PRODUCT IMMEDIATELY.

    just switch to gboard. the swift team does not seem to care about it's customers. i think that they don't understand that not all of us need the autocorrect....
