Randomly lost my predictions 1/5
My predictions randomly disappeared and now I can't swipe my saved words anymore and it seems like it's filtering profanity now out of nowhere. Nobody says ducking btw.
I never had the pleasure of typing so fast and easy, just wish the fonts could be different, maybe in the next update
Easily the best keyboard 5/5
I wish it was the full Android version, but it saves me from the complete frustration of the iPhone keyboard.
I wish they added a hacked voice option like Gboard. I've noticed that the stock keyboard has improved predictability, and voice recognition (it actually works now somewhat), still nowhere close to SwiftKey.
Good, but crashing 1/5
Even though this app is amazing when it works, it’s crashing more and more each day.
First I thought it’s current releise bug and will be fixed in quite soon, but it’s been over a year now and it seems it got from bad to worse.
I mean, how hard it can be to develop a stable version of it???
Stop wasting time on stupid themes and focus on bug fixes, pleeeeaaaseee!!!!
Awesome app 5/5
Love this app
Really like this app buttt 4/5
it would be useful to have the voice to text option on this without having to switch back and forth.
Also wish the keyboard was smarter and available to predict my words better.. Also kind of annoying when you say OMGGG one time and from then on your keyboard changing it from "omg".
Also it likes to correct f* to duck and ducking. It's just plain stupid.
Lastly, after you tap and hold the period to get the short cut to the other punctuations, it should automatically space for you for the appropriate ones... (Period, comma, question mark, etc.)
Fixed on iPhone X 5/5
Awesome update with the dynamic keyboard skin!
I generally like SwiftKey better than Gboard, and SK does a better job with text shortcuts. However, the lack of a dynamic light/dark theme like the system keyboard and Gboard makes it look very bad when the screen doesn't match the chosen theme.
Love it 5/5
By Nemo's Reviews
I love SwiftKey so much! You can add images to the background which adds such a cool effect to typing and makes typing addicting haha. I am using the keyboard now and love it. I am very happy about the emoji prediction option!! A big help.
Customized Keyboards 5/5
So happy iOS has finally let us use our own photos for SwiftKey! I've loved and been using this on my Samsung phones for awhile...
One suggestion: I see you let us pick a pop up color? Would like that on Android. But also why when flowing though text is back to white? I use SwiftKey to flow...and to type extremely fast! So please consider these in an update. Thanks again development team, and Google! I've had SwiftKey so long I had to pay like 5$ or something for it lol... Definitely have got my money's worth over the years! Keep going it can always get better. (Changing fonts etc...)
Best predictive keyboard app! 5/5
By M&M. 2012
I have used this app on both Android and Apple devices. This is the best and most intuitive app. I am able to type so much faster and with higher accuracy. I have been using my new native keyboard for several months, and while Apple's native keyboard is a lot smarter than Samsung's native keyboard, it still doesn't compare to SwiftKey. Love this keyboard app!!! ❤️
Love love love it! 5/5
I had this kind if keyboard on my Galaxy and lived it. Now it's in the iPhone and I love it even more! I was concerned it wouldn't be the same at when I had an android and I was so glad to be proven wrong. Keep up the awesome work! The only thing I wish it had was the mic button for talk-to-text but maybe I haven't found it yet, haha.
i have no words
Devs please read, I feel like I speak for many people here 5/5
By Dyllon Spease
I honestly think SwiftKey is amazing, I love the fact that you can make your own keyboard, the only thing that I don't like is that you can't change the colour of the line when you swipe, I think since you can change everything else you should be able to change that
It delete's stuff on its own 4/5
Everything is gone my old Emails my passwords the words i use the most it's gone and it's not the first time this happens...please fix this problem!!
Not great 3/5
The swiping is not accurate at all. Swift is very lacking. Now, on Android, the Google keyboard is very accurate at swiping,but not sure on iPhone. Very disappointed in the keyboard for this iPhone X.
I selected this app based on reviews from the website. Everyone was more than accurate about how easy it is to use. There is a variety of designs to select from. How the app stores my specific method of typing and word usage is one of the best I've tried. There are a few tweaks that could be made in the design area which would be great.
Doesn’t work as good as android and randomly stops 3/5
By Mr crazy Hackman!!
It’s kinda works but when you are using the swift function it will be working fine and then the whole thing you just typed with the swift function will just disappear like you never typed it and it’s super annoying, and doesn’t work nearly as well as android but that is expected, but aleast we still have it and it’s works sometimes right? Can’t complain too much
Does everything 5/5
By Ya boi Ivan
aND then some!
The best keyboard in the App store 5/5
I love it ❤️
Very Glitchy and not intuitive 2/5
By Lil Lotta
I soooooo wanted this app to be like my Samsung S7 but sadly no. I don't know what is more annoying, having to load and re-load the app all the time or the fact that I spend as much time editing my text messages as I do writing them. I would have paid for this if it worked.
Great keyboard... But swipe 4/5
By Isaiah Aqui
This keyboard is by far the best looking keyboard I have used and it is great except for the swipe to text. Compared to other keyboards, like Gboard, the swipe to text is pretty bad. I find myself having to either swipe very slowly for it to process what I am typing correctly, or having to delete and retype my words very often. I feel this feature is just not up to snuff compared to other keyboards. I really hope this feature is improved because other than this I have no real complaints and I like this app a lot
Constantly crashes, missing features 2/5
SwiftKey for Android is one of the best apps ever created for a phone. It's fast, stable, powerful.
SwiftKey for iOS is none of these things. It crashes constantly for no apparent reason, usually forcing me to restart the app I was typing in before it will reappear. It lacks several options that the Android version contains. There are also a ton of bugs. For instance, sometimes the predictions stop updating in the middle of a sentence. And most of the time to prediction software misses the first letter of a sentence. Neither of these issues occurs on Android.
This could be the perfect keyboard if the developers put half as effort into the iOS version as they do the Android version.
Great app! 5/5
The word suggestions make typing so much faster. Two feature requests: be able to switch between tapping and swipeing to complete a word and 2) ability to speak a text like Apple keyboards already have.
Love it! 5/5
I don't utilize all of the cool features enough but it's a very nice little app for my iPhone !
This had got to be the best keyboard ever
Love it but... 4/5
Love it buttttttt....my keyboard background suddenly changed from black to orange. Poor contrast!!!
If you could change the layout of the keyboard where it didn't have to be the entire bottom of an iPhone 7+ or 8+ and just take up 2/3rds of one side. In this scenario I could have the entire keyboard on one reachable side of the phone then I could be really productive with just one hand but right now I have to still use both hands to text on this giant keyboard
I wish this keyboard had talk to text! 4/5
The keyboard is nice but I really wish they would update it to include talk to text.
Eerie reminder of Swype 2/5
Since the update it is coming up with words that maybe 1 in a billion people use.
This reminds me of why I left Swype. Please change it back.
Almost perfect. 4/5
It would be great to have the microphone button for speak to text so I don't have to switch to the standard keyboard.
Swift key on my iPhone 5/5
By Jody L.
I can't Believe how easy it was to down load and use I've tried others and been disappointed but this one got it right love it! The only thing I miss is the microphone option... JL
I don't want to delete a keyboard when editing it. I want to build on it to make it better. I notice when editing a keyboard, u can only delete it. I love all the keyboards I created. I sometimes want to make it better.
Much better droid version 2/5
The IOS version is lousy
Typing on SwiftKey for this review 4/5
By Swift Le
This app is great for swipe-to-type but it lacks the basic option to turn off predictive which is a poor use of space on small screen like iPhone SE. PLEASE bring back the kill switch.
SwiftKey app 5/5
By J Burnett
This is a awesome app for anyone
Has some problems out the gate 4/5
By Monster maker 2345:
Let me start with the pros, for one I like the fact that there is multiple skins to choose from that are free, this is a huge plus over competitors and also allows you to customize the background of your keyboard. Another thing is I like that you can swipe to type which is cool. Typing isn't a problem, the keyboard seems to work fine and has good response and doesn't seem to skip letters or click wrong buttons. Now for some cons. I haven't used the app for very long (maybe a few hours) but the first thing that I noticed is that when you 3d touch and use the "track pad" it hardly works. Apple has this down where you can :d touch and use the "track pad" to move up and down rows and go side to side and it's something I use during almost every text conversations have and SwiftKey doesn't do this very well. Half the time it does.t even work, you 3d touch the screen and you it goes to "track pad" but it's super delayed and lags by a few seconds sometimes when I drag my finger and most of the time the cursor disappears so I have no way of knowing where I am in the text. Another thing is that SwiftKey "track pad" can only go side to side which is super annoying. With the apple keyboard you can move up and down rows seamlessly kind of like when you're on a keyboard if you press the up and down arrows but with this you can only go side to side much like if you were to press either the left or right arrow keys on a keyboard, I don't think I'm gonna be able to use this until you guys can bring your "track pad up to pay with Apple. Another thing going is I use emoji shortcuts all the time and you guys don't seem to have any. Like if I were to type "haha" a laughing emoji pops up in my predictive word bar on apples keyboard but with yours nothing shows up. That's all I have to say for now and I hope this helps for future improvements. Hope you guys are having a good day!
Love this app! 5/5
My new favorite keyboard app! Especially love the way the keyboard changes from light to dark depending on what I'm doing. Please don't change a thing!
Could've been better 2/5
I like SwiftKey and I've been using it for years.. on my android phones. But why does the ios version lack so many features that's available on Android?
Better than stock, but could be better 2/5
I used to use a windows lumia phone. It had a stock windows keyboard and it was phenomenal. It was so much better than android and iOS. I was hoping SwiftKey would be similar, and it is, but it isn’t fully there. The prediction was better and the emoji suggestions were on point in the windows phone keyboard. Maybe I was just more used to the old one, but I’ve been using this for over 5 months now and it still causes minor frustrations every single day. Microsoft, please bring a better keyboard because I know you have one.
This app replaced my boring stock keyboard!! Would highly recommend this for anyone who wants to type faster or easier.
No urdu! 4/5
Great keyboard for English but disappointed it doesn't have urdu!
I mostly dig it... 4/5
But I just realized that the keyboard, if the only one used, has no dictation option.
No Ukrainian language 1/5
The app is useless for me because it does not have Ukrainian.
Loses all your added words 1/5
I've gotten used to swift key, and had entered most of my special words in enough times that it remembered them, and then, bam! One day it actively refuses to type in a single one of my words! What the heck?
Finally a Swype keyboard that WORKS 5/5
This app is amazing. Highly recommend
Faster than hunt and peck typing on iPhone's default keyboard, but much worse than Wordflow, which is apparently no longer available. Sometimes autocompletes unusual proper names instead of longer words, to the point of perplexity. Some messages I doubt if I truly am saving time.
Overall though, much preferable to Apple's ancient keyboard format.
Corrects words that are not misspelled 3/5
I generally like this app, but every once in a while it will start changing words unnecessarily. For me it specifically keeps changing the word "have" to "I" and no matter how many times I delete and correct it, it just does it again to the point where I literally can't move on in my sentence without completely changing what I was saying. So when I'm trying to say "I have" or "we have" it changes it to "I I" or "We I." Super annoying and doesn't make any sense.
Fatal flaw 2/5
This could be a wonderful keyboard, but it has a fatal flaw – it lacks a microphone button. This makes it impossible to dictate an email. As soon as I discovered this, I sadly removed the app from my iPad.
Best third party keyboard out there 4/5
I've never taken to any third party keyboards ever, primarily because it takes forever for them to learn new words and predict well, unlike the apple keyboard which is there on the phone from the start. However out of most of them, this is the best experience so far. It picks up used words quickly, I LOVE it's feature to have two merged languages so I don't have to change between them. Just want more themes and better emoji prediction and never deleting this one! 💕
Great but needs a minor UI tweak 4/5
There's just this 1 big failing: I need a "real" native-style globe key which shows all my keyboards with a long press. Not just the "Next Keyboard" function. Word Flow keyboard by Microsoft did this (RIP Word Flow) so I know it's possible! The reason is it's annoying to have to cycle through 3+ keyboards to get to the one I want. For example, native keyboard is the only way to do dictation. And I use Bitmoji keyboard. So that's 3 minimum even if I use the SwiftKey built-in emoji keyboard instead of the standard one. I should be able to jump directly to any keyboard with one press-n-hold.
