Can't switch back to my other keyboards!!! 3/5
Like the swipe feature. Not great to type in Spanish but for English it works fine. Big complaint is once I have on thus keyboard I now can't switch back to my other keyboards!!! Help
Laggy in iOS 11 2/5
I've ben using SwiftKey for 5 years on my iPhones and now on iPad.
In iOS 11 the keyboard is laggy, both on my iPhone SE and my brand new iPad Pro 2017. Sometimes it frequently crashs and stock-keyword pops up instead. I'm not sure if it's worth to mention, but I use it for English/Persian.
The fact that SwiftKey doesn't support two-line gesture to move cursor on iPad is frustrating and (unlike iPhone) is not acceptable. Please give us the option to disable swipe-to-type and instead have move cursor feature.
Predictions are terrible and hard to correct 1/5
The most infuriating thing is when I see the correct word pop up when I'm swiping, but at the end it inserts some completely wrong (and often really obscure) word instead. As for correcting a bad autocorrection, I think I can count on one hand the number of times it's actually worked.
Seriously, does this app go through any testing at all before it's released?
Get the basics right 2/5
I don’t care about your themes feature, get your basics right. This keyboard doesn’t seem to learn from corrections made while typing.. it needs “social media” access to learn. Ridiculous.. what if I want to use this keyboard for typing in one of those social media apps.. where will it learn from then? And, add Kannada language support.. you already do in Android.
I love this app
Was a great app 3/5
But now it's just OK. Following a recent update, the app seems to have lost its predictably and no longer learns my common words. So "yay" is always corrected to "Yaya" now, and y'all is always corrected to "you'll." Sad. 11/17 - it's a few months since I wrote this and the app still hasn't learned that when I say Yay, I mean it. Disappointed in the app, think I'll try something else now.
Enjoyable But.... 3/5
By Tone perfect
I have been using SwiftKey now for about 3 years. However up until this most recent iOS update, I find myself having to ALWAYS change from the stock keyboard to SwiftKey. Can anyone help with a resolution on how I can make SwiftKey my permanent preferred keyboard???
Needs smarter text correction 3/5
Often when glide typing, a few words will get incorrectly auto corrected. This is inevitable, but when I highlight a word and swipe the correct word, it should not add an auto space after the correction. This results in two spaces in the middle of the sentence and is frustrating to correct. Same thing happens when you replace words using one of the suggested words in the top bar.
It would also be nice if I could highlight an incorrect word and be offered suggestions for similar words based on the proximity of the letters to the incorrect words, not unrelated suggestions from the predictive engine.
I'd also like the ability to change the default punctuation key to a comma, because I use the double space bar period shortcut already and don't need two input methods for the same character. Every time I need to use a comma I am forced to slowly hold the period and swipe over to find the comma.
These are annoyances that keep this keyboard from being the best third party keyboard in the app store.
Absolutely love this keyboard and so happy that I was able to get it in the apple store!
Unusable for YouTube 3/5
Crashes in YouTube. I have to switch it out.
There is still no one handed setting for the iPhone app, when there has been one for years for the android app. Now, the app doesn't work in my dictionary app, and does weird things to text formating in other apps. I want to love this app, but I just can't. Sorry.
Lots of bugs and crash in ios 11 1/5
It seems need to be update
Always crash and close when typing and deafault keyboard will open
That's great, very excellent.
Best ever keyboard 5/5
By swifty writer
iPad version is lacking features 2/5
Swiftkey on Android tablet is AWESOME and I love it. But on my iPad it’s lacking top number keys, arrow keys, the microphone key, split keyboard views, and long press for special characters in lieu of toggling the 123 key. Sadly it will be replaced with the default ios keyboard.
No arrow key option 4/5
There is not an arrow key option like there is for Android but other than that, a great keyboard!
Prediction is decent, but swipe typing falls short 2/5
There are better "Swipe" keyboards out there.
this app would be perfect if... 4/5
this app would be perfect if the predictive text was up to par with the iPhone keyboard. I make an insane amount of texting mistakes while using this keyboard. Like “st” doesn’t get replaced to “at”, or “thr” doesn’t get replaced to “the”, so I have a lot of those little mistakes and I feel like it doesn’t learn the words quick enough. Love that they added the option to put your own picture as the background but it’s still not worth it to me to use it because it makes texting a hassle with a lot of back-spacing.
Fix your app 2/5
By Rafi Phoenix
It does show up on other apps like YouTube (and I already uninstalled and reinstalled)
It's okay. 3/5
Crashes all the time.
By Mahedi Hasan
Everything is good but Need bengla language
Not like the one on android 3/5
There is no sync
What happened? 3/5
I had the app and it was working great. Then I switched IPhone X’s and it stopped working. I couldn’t see where to allow it full access so it stopped working. I followed the prompts but I never saw the Allow Full Access option. Help!
it's ok 3/5
sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't... u have to manually switch sometimes from the iPhone keypad.
La mejor 5/5
Muy buena aplicación
I like the style but needs update 5/5
You would love everything of this app but with me new iPhone8 iso 11.1.1 and iso 11.1.2, because of the keyboard sometimes the phone froze.
This is not an improvement over Word Flow 2/5
By serene and impatient
Hyper aggressive autocorrect. Even when you fix the misspelling, it reverts. Backspace, it reverts. If it thinks it recognizes a two word pattern, it replaces both words. And you have to backspace through all letters. Long words, it blanks. Even typing this review is a headache.
Doing alright 4/5
▒ The option to hide the emoji key is very welcome, I really like the extra space for the space key ▒ Being able to have multiple languages downloaded even if not enabled, but ready for use, is great █ Would be good to see the app working without the absolute need for "Full access" for those privacy-consciouos people (Even Gboard, from all the keyboards, works without Full access) █ Does need the option to separate languages, I may use English and Spanish, but I don't like the keyboards being merged █ Together with the "Full access" requirement, would be good if the kayboard clicks worked without this option, but seeing as Gboard doesn't do this either, maybe it's a limitation
poor prediction 2/5
It was a good keyboard but after the last update, the predictive text feature is horrible. I constantly have to correct what I am trying to type because the keyboard keeps inserting words that don’t make sense.
Pleasant surprised 4/5
First third party keyboard that's not slow to use. The autocorrect is pretty good and the swipe is good but still learning how to adjust to me.
Overall it's worth trying.
Terrible swipe typing 2/5
By the Langolier
Without swiping to type, what's the point of using anything but the built in keyboard? The keyboard gets the wrong word multiple times per sentence, and correcting the word is with more trouble than the feature is worth. Pressing backspace just deletes one letter. Tapping the word only provides 3 options to change the word to. If it isn't any of those, then you're just left with deleting the word and typing it out yourself. It's more tolerable to just type each letter which the built in keyboard is much better at, with access to more punctuation and numbers on the main keyboard.
It's seems like they care more to think that they can guess the word I want to type next (hint, they can't) than to get the words that I am actually typing correct. Sorry guys, I don't need a computer to type a sentence for me - I learned how to do that in elementary school. What I need you to do is when the keyboard gets the wrong word, to make it easier and give me more options to correct the word.
Oh, and then there's the crashing. It only took me 2 days to uninstall this after it would constantly resize itself in the YouTube app before crashing. Their graphic designers are doing a great job though.
This is amazing!!!👍👍 5/5
This app really helps me type faster! I love how you can customize your keyboard and just swipe to type! The only thing that keeps me from doing 5 stars⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ is that whenever I type something using the swipe it lags a little bit and it messes up what I am typing but other than that, it's AMAZING!
Poor swipe implementation 1/5
The swipe word prediction functionality is funky and unlike word flow.
When I swipe a word it does not make a primary guess and offer alternatives in word bar. Instead it just assumes the word and predicts the NEXT Word. Huh?
Also, when it assumes wrong I have to delete every letter of wrong word. This is brutal.
Word Flow was great. This app is useless.
Love!! 😊 🙌 5/5
So easy to use!! You've got to try it!
Replaced the original APP Wordflow 4/5
I would have given this 5 stars if it had worked better then the original Wordflow APP it replaced. It would be nice if the backspace function deleted the words misspelled with one tap.
swift key 5/5
Best keyboard out there / along with predictions
Buggy on IOS 11 3/5
All of a sudden it's become very buggy on IOS 11. Switches to stock IOS keyboard randomly at start of typing or mid type even though I have the stock one disabled. Many times I'll start typing and it doesn't register anything till I stop and restart. Please fix. Been using SwiftKey for years!!
Great keyboard, lots of crashes :( 3/5
This the absolute best keyboard in iOS and android. Too bad it's been getting worse and worse in terms of crashing for the past year. Thing is it's too good that I just can't use the regular keyboard when SwiftKey crashes 😆
Very convenient and quick 5/5
I love swiftkey
Love my SwiftKey 5/5
By Our Majesty
I always wanted to have an IPhone but it does not have swiping. I have a problem in my wrist and can't type. So I downloaded the SwiftKey app and I'm in heaven. It predicts all my sentences and I don't even have to swipe most of the time. Love the colors and the themes.
But can you add another sounds!!
By Bella at work
This is amazing but maybe you guys could give more directions
Saves a lot of time! 5/5
Knows how I type and now with custom keyboards! Nice!😀
Gboard is better, this is nearly impossible to use 1/5
No matter how sloooooowly you swipe to the letters and no matter how simple the word is, you get the most outlandish correction ever. Tried for a few minutes to type the word “aesthetic” and it repeatedly gave me “a he’s the tic” even after I corrected it. It’s easier to just use the stock keyboard than fight with this thing honestly.
Add one handed keyboard 4/5
Please add one handed keyboard. It's a really useful feature to me. Apple keyboard already have it but I like more swift keyboard. I don't like the swipe thing.
Great but lack of microphone ruins it 3/5
I like the keyboard, but the lack of a microphone button for text to voice ruins the experience and prevents it from being 5 stars. I constantly find myself switching to default Apple keyboard for voice input, which is a pain and non-intuitive. PLEASE FIX!
Best Keyboard I Have Used 5/5
By Nanny's IPhone 5S
I love this keyboard and all the options it has! I also appreciate the ability to backup my style of typing and the privacy SwiftKey insures me!
Glide along 5/5
Awesome keyboard! Great experience typing long messages in a small screen.
Reviews being deleted 1/5
I suspect Apple is deleting unfavorable reviews. I have experienced this across several applications now. Nice damage management, Apple! SwiftKey is horrendous in iOS 11! It crashes as if crashing is going out of style! In YouTube particularly, it is almost impossible to avoid a crash!
By J Lue
Great but it needs more options
