    I personally wish I could deactivate the word prediction bar because I want to improve my typing without relying on that bar. 

    Some advice for those who get suggestions for words you never want to use: just hold down on the word in the prediction bar and it will give you the option to stop predicting that word.

    I can not believe the support here. You created a great product with a major flaw and instead of adjusting it, you tell people they are wrong. For 2years. Unbelievable.

    I am an estate agent from Czech, work mostly with expats, so I write about 50 messages a day, in both Czech and English. Your stupid suggestion bar is in my way, I can not constantly switch between keyboards. 

    I just got this phone and honestly thought about returning it if I don`t find a way to get rid of SwiftKey. I hope this message gets somewhere so everyone you sold this crap to will see, they are loosing clients over your stupid app.

    Thankfully I found a solution here, Gboard. But if the SwiftKey will get in my way again, the phone will go. And my beloved iPhone will be resurrected from the drawer.

    Thanks to whoever suggested the Gboard.

    I know I am reviving a dead post, but this is relevant.

    We should have the ability to disable the word suggestion feature if we have no need for it. Even when one uninstalls all languages, the bar still blocks the text field sometimes.

    Please fix this. Every other aspect of this keyboard is superior to others that I have tried.

    I am so tired of these suggestions getting in the way when I am trying to go back and edit the text, so today I decided to find out how to disable this function. SHOCK!! It is not possible!!?! How on earth can you defend this?  I write in Norwegian ONLY and the list with suggestions are N-E-V-E-R correct. There are mostly english words coming up. I have to tap somwhere else to make the list with all the erroneus suggestions go away before I can edit the text.

    I saw in an earlier post that you claim that autocorrect is essential in a modern keyboard.  Well, make it work then!

    Goodbye Swiftkey.

    Holy crap guys. It's not that annoying jeez. It would be nice if there was an option to remove it sure but honestly this is the best keyboard app out there in my opinion. I personally am not going to let this one flaw ruin my experience.

    On the flip side. @SwiftKey. You have 3 pages of comments asking in various ways for an option to hide the suggestion bar. I don't think that's too difficult a feature to add.

    You know what the worst part about this is? When entering passwords, the prediction bar disappears (for obvious reasons), taunting us with the simple, yet important, change we all want.

    This proves that the code already exists to remove the bar. Any response from the developers from this point on that does not assent to our mass request is pure arrogance.

    I will be actively steering people away from this keyboard. I encourage everyone here to do the same. You don't have to troll the forums, just tell your friends to avoid this keyboard if they ask for recommendations. If we all do a little bit, it will amount to serious pressure on this tone deaf company. They must learn to work with their customers.

    Hey, more than two years since this thread has been opened and you've done nothing in that direction! I can't believe this! Is incredible how stubborn you are! The prediction bar on top should be an option, not forced on us! Great keyboard ruined by this feature? Are you deaf or blind? Can't you see how many people are complaining about this or you just don't give a sh*t about anyone?
    My suggestion for anyone is to leave a rating on play store, according to this experience. Maybe, this way they will feel it! Me personally, i will switch back to gboard even tough i don't like it but at least they are not forcing something so obvious on me.

    That's it, I will be switching to GBoard from now on. That's the best solution so far.

    How is it possible that this is not an option? I'm not 5 years old, I can type just fine without your suggestions, which are WRONG 99% of the time anyway. Also switched to GBoard, seems to work wonderfully. The idiot who made SwiftKey and refuses to put this simple option in can take that prediction bar and shove it up his ass.

    So for some reason my default keyboard switched back to this again (it's preinstalled so I couldn't get rid of it entirely) despite me already switching to GBoard for a long time already, so I checked if you have finally decided to have an option to remove that language bar and it looks like you still haven't, which is unfortunate because that's really the only thing preventing me from choosing this keyboard.

    I have taken the time to register a swiftkey account exclusively to reply to this abundant ignorance from SwiftKey leadership and support.

     

    I have worked in IT for close to 15 years now. If your idea of the software development and improvement cycle is to belittle and ignore users and customers with perfectly valid and practical reasoning, then go ahead: super-impose and enforce a feature that no one really needs or wants. In order to see your userbase dwindle, and hopefully: some major customers and phone-manufacturers, as well.

     

    Understandably not even in English many users seem to enjoy word prediction. After all we're human beings. We don't need or want to be hand-held for every single thing. But consider this: Beyond that there are purely oral languages, like for instance Swiss German which does not even have an official, written language. Good luck on creating a word prediction database for a language where almost every single Swiss speaker has a unique way of writing words or sentences, depending on a plethora of dialects, regions and personal preference simply as the language "sounds" to them.

     

    Not only are you discriminating users in general, but also specific userbases, regions, origins and languages with sheer arrogance and ignorance.

     

    I enjoy Swiftkey for it's typing precision. However the inability to disable the prediction bar, even with workarounds, as my Huawei P30 Lite requires at least one default language... is a deal-breaker. I shouldn't even need to fiddle around with workarounds, when application settings could resolve this matter easily.

     

    I'll check out Gboard. Hacker's Keyboard is another recommendation for more technically oriented applications.

     

    Good-Bye, Swiftkey. Here comes another, data-mining google service.

     

    You should... REALLY... escalate this issue, this request. All the way to your superiors in line, up to top-level management, beyond whomever stands in the way of your own product and your customers. With ignorance, arrogance and most probably: Some sort of seriously destructive personality disorders. Or whatever the reasons for your corporate, service-disoriented, insanity.. may be.

    Like many others, I too only created an account to comment here. I like to study foreign languages, and I use flashcards apps that make me type in my target language. The prediction bar really hinders that, since it shows the words right away, preventing me from actively trying to recall them. Turning off my target language wouldn't do it because it's similar to my mother tongue.

    I really like SwiftKey, it has a lot of cool features and has beautiful looks. However, not being able to disable a simple bar is plain ridiculous. I'll gladly try other keyboard apps.

    Yet one more vote to have the option of disabling the prediction/top bar!!  Other than that it's works great.  As with so many other, now using Gboard instead.

    I'm learning a new language in the phone app. Big part of it to write some words from memory. Guess what happens next :)

    And as for spoiling great prediction power of SwiftKey - people are using swiping, not predictions.
