I've been a devoted SwiftKey user for years. I even purchased themes to keep you going. I primarily love SwiftKey because I love to swipe without having to lift my finger up. However it seems like SwiftKey changed the way that swiping works and it takes away some of what made SwiftKey better than Gboard. You see, I used to be able to enter a word by manually typing the first two letters of the word and then finished spelling the word by swiping the remaining letters. As long as I didn't hit the spacebar then it knew that I was still working on the same word. This made word prediction significantly more accurate. However, your new method removes the ability to start a word by typing and finish it by swiping. Instead, if I lift my finger up, it automatically considers that a new word. The end result is that I end up typing most words (to get the proper ending) instead of swiping. And that defeats the purpose of swiping all together. Please strongly consider going back to the old way of swiping.

I have had this app just about a year now. Having the ability to swipe and not chicken peck on a cellphone to send text and email is huge, but some basic features on this app are inconsistent and worse than earlier versions or similar apps (hard to know switching from Droid to Apple). For instance, as others have mentioned, it completely forgets previous frequently used words not even suggesting them, instead inputs words I have never used or selected. Where do they come from? I have never heard or seen anyone use this crazy/foreign/ dated language. It does not appear to be improving with usage, as I thought was implied. And to the above point, I use similar language frequently and I don't know why I often have to repeatedly correct it from crazy words I never use. Why isn't it improving? Next, when I begin typing a word or compete a word and it offers a suggestion and I choose that word from the suggestion box it does not input it but leaves the few letters I typed and enters a space after the incomplete word, or just enters a space after the wrong word. I have to go back and select the word again or completely type the word myself. What's the use in suggestions then? I am growing increasingly frustrated with this app and beginning to question if chicken pecking might be faster and more hassle-free.

I love SwiftKey, and have had it for years now, buuuutttttt... Every now and then it seems like it forgets all words lol. For instance I will just type and show you the ridiculous predictions it makes... Seeley is they beat ladybirds applications I have asked to be ony phone fit this looks (years) Brevard it is bets than any other keyboards I have ever been able Fri use that actually does what I need it to do. Thus is turning out to be a bad example of the ridiculous words of will change my round into.... Sooooo, what I just typed (or tried to) is "SwiftKey is the best keyboard application I have allowed to be on my phone for this long (years) because it is better than any other keyboards I have ever been able to use that actually does what I need it to do. This is turning out to be a bad example of the ridiculous words it will change my words into"... You get the point. Just wonder why it seems to forget my words at random times. Makes typing longer and more difficult when I have to re-type every word over and over and OVER AGAIN. But other than those random points where it re-learns my style or regular English (lol), I do love this app.

I had a keyboard that swyped better than this one until it continuously froze. It guessed my words accurately and didn't change my typed words after a second time. This app is a let down, the amount of times I have to retype a word because it wants to supply a different word is ridiculous. I've had this keyboard for a few months because it's the only option aside from manually typing like everyone else, but it still feels like a waste of time. I give it two stars since it still cuts down the amount of time I could've spent putting in the text individually, but there have been a number of times that I spent more time trying to get this keyboard to work and I doubled the time that should've been non existent. Really disappointed. My expectations were too high, I guess because the other keyboard put in the word I needed and I didn't have to be so concise, on the other hand, when I am annoyingly concise with running my thumb across letters to be accurate, the keyboard doesn't pick up the word 🙄 this rating has a third of the original words, I had to delete the other two thirds and retype them. I continue to look for another keyboard that's accurate and efficient. If they update this one , that would be nice (:

This app is great to be able to design your own keyboard and enjoy the swipe feature... when it wants to work! I tell my friends when they see my custom keyboard on my iPhone, with swipe, to download this application. But I won’t if it isn’t working correctly and will only cause others technological issues as well. I find myself C O N S T A N T L Y rebooting my phone or messing with the application itself to try to figure out why the swipe feature is in fact not working. Especially when I need it to work, trying to send something quickly and efficiently which is why I utilize this keyboard as a tool almost 24/7. The only thing is the mistakes with the functionality of the swipe keyboard itself is making me want to look into other options because the keyboard won’t work 50% of the time. I just rebooted my phone to fix the issue, and it lasted about 5 minutes, or a couple of texts to be accurate, and then the issue began again! If you could fix the bugs that would be great. Thank you! You will he keep me as a user and I will continue to promote this keyboard.
