Love it 5/5
Privacy-Hostile Keyboard 1/5
There is really no excuse for requiring "full access" (aka break your privacy mode) for the keyboard to work at all.
So much easier 4/5
By Miss Cheryl H
I used to have SwiftKey on my android and I absolutely loved it. When I switched to my iPhone I was sad that it wasn't the same. It had less themes and so I didn't download it. Some time later I got it and I realized that I still love it. It didn't take me long to remember how much easier it is to text this way. The reason I gave 4 stars is because you can't pick the size of the keyboard. If they brought back the size option then I'd definitely give full stars. I won't go back to the other keyboard again.
This app collects EVERYTHING you type! Including bank account numbers! Also, personal info including home address! Photos too. Why would you want to give this info away? Even if you turn off permissions it still collects data. I'm deleting this now. Its not worth the invasion of privacy.
I love it 5/5
This is the best keyboard app ever!
It has the worst predictive spelling of any swooped app I've used. Terrible
Wide keyword 4/5
By It’s ready
Developers, could you make the space wider for the selection of the middle choice? On the max phones it's too far a reach and I'm constantly picking the selection on the right side by mistake, spend more time correcting then it's worth. I ends at within sentence liked ghosts one.
Useless unless you allow full access 2/5
Want a swiping keyboard? Don't bother with this app unless you want every single keystroke sent to their servers. They don't make it clear, but unless you allow full keyboard access, the swiping feature doesn't work at all.
Also their support is super slow. Takes weeks to hear back, and they don't provide useful info so it takes months to actually get an answer.
Five stars? 5/5
Revised.... .excellent on top of sweet. This is fatabulous now. Highly recommend!!!!
Still no swype, predictive text or full word delete or.. .but I addef a star cuz you are trying.. .I think. Sept 21st 2018.
SORRY.. .DOWNGRADE RATING TO two stars. No longer able to SWIPE. Got to find a new app.
If this app had a quick delete for a wrong word inserted instead of tapping to erase each and every character, it would definitely receive FIVE STARS. Excellent app for swipe writing other than that one missing feature.
Not accurate enough 1/5
Overall this keyboard is great to use but no where near as accurate as Google keyboard. On average is say it gets 2-3 words wrong in a sentence for phrases g board gets right. Not worth the hassle of using it.
I love this app 5/5
I wish they could have more designs and animations! I really love this keyboard!
Getting worse 1/5
By An honest reviewer 0
super glitchy, takes awhile to open, please fix
Worst keyboard ever! 1/5
I spend more time correcting typos with this or resending texts bc the previous ones had so many typos the recipient couldn’t understand what I was saying. Hard pass, this used to be the best keyboard- hasn’t been for a long time.
By hey uglys

Suggestions keep disappearing still no split keyboard in 2019 1/5
Suggestions field keeps turning blank. Also still no split keyboard. This is pale imitation of the Android version.
How good this app is 5/5
I just got this app and I'm already like in it
Get GBOARD 1/5
By JB Wilson
I've been using swiftkey for over 6-7 years, was my go to, but over the past year it has become more and more inaccurate, coming up with random words I wasn't swiping that doesn't even go with the sentence I was typing, it's lost its smart capability. Thank God I found one better and MUCH MORE ACCURATE, JUST AS QUICK.. Go with GBOARD!!! Until swiftkey gets their crap together, I'm definitely dumping them for an upgrade!
WOW!!! 🤩 5/5
By God lives in me
This app is amazing! It can seamlessly go from swiping to regular typing. With swiping it has amazing accuracy and is just great. It is much better than any keyboard I have ever had and is a must download! There are no words to describe my love for this keyboard. The backgrounds are also phenomenal! Wow! Just wow!
Pretty good but still not as good as the android version 4/5
The android version suggests emojis for example when you type smile it suggests the smile emoji but for some reason I can't figure it out on iOS swype but still far better than the stock keyboard.
Number row a move in the right direction, but... 3/5
Please for the love of God add long press for numbers and punctuation like the android version. That's the main thing missing that would make it so much better.
Love it can't live without it!! 5/5
Love it can't live without it!!
I love that you can use your own photos!
Great! Still could be better. My update is at the end! 🙂 4/5
My SwiftKey Review October 2, 2018
I have used SwiftKey for quite a while. I am probably the biggest fan, if not the only serious fan of SwiftKey. I used the app when I had Android and it was a dream come true! I had been searching and searching for the longest for a keyboard app that had any and all, or at the very least, most of what I could want in a keyboard app. When I came across SwiftKey and tried it out, I fell in love! 😍 I told my mom and everyone that would listen to get this app. This was THE keyboard app for Android.
When I was blessed to have apple products, I was a bit disappointed, actually a lot disappointed. I was disappointed because some of the features that made SwiftKey stand out against any and all keyboards (and I have tried them all) were not available on my iPhone and my iPad. SwiftKey is still my keyboard app, even without the needed features, but I would love to have those features on my apple devices.
The features that were on my Android devices and that are not on my Apple devices, which I am speaking of are the following:
Number row key at top of keyboard (so that I won't have to tap to switch to numbers)
These are some of the features. I cannot think of others. The SwiftKey settings on Android devices had a slew of options in settings, I mean a galore of settings! But on my Apple devices, the settings are so basic!
SwiftKey still stands number one in my book, especially with predictions! But as I mentioned before, I would love the other features I had on Android. 😕
I am a Techie, so I do understand that the coding is different. But I hope SwiftKey work on making all the features on Android devices available on Apple devices. 🙂
Again, I still love SwiftKey! ❤️
Update!!!!! May 20, 2019
Number row key and a new cut and paste feature! Thank you, SwiftKey! But I'm still waiting for more features before give that last star. Sorry! But I still love you! 😍
Much worse than Swype 1/5
Why did microsoft kill off its garage project keyboard Swype and buy this instead? It's far worse.Swype was amazing!!
I have been trying and trying but the swipe on this keyboard simply fails CONSTANTLY. It's wildly wrong far more often than it's right, to the point where I'm actually much slower with it than just thumb typing.
Example. As I was typing this review, I swiped and it put on screen the following (I swiped - it printed): actually - Acushnet. Typing - acetaminophen (????). And so on. It gets apostrophes wrong most of the time. It adds spaces after full stops only some of the time.
So after my third try with this keyboard (multiple versions, two separate phones)... Goodbye (the app printed "good guy" for that!???). Too bad. Microsoft... PLEASE bring back Swype. This one is simply junk.
Best App Ever 5/5
I've been looking for an app that I can costimize my own keyboard on for months now and I finally found it. It's so useful and I'm so glad that I found this amazing app😁❤️
By Duke Flint
I switched to this after Swype was discontinued. Swype was great. This is...OK. An easy improvement would be to have the apostrophe available when pressing and holding the full stop. Also numbers when pressing and holding the top row. But I've heard rumours Apple is planning it's own version so who knows. Might all be moot.
No swipe :( 1/5
Says it will swipe text but it won't swipe when I try to text.....That's the only thing I miss about my old android phone, now I have an iphone and really wish I could swipe text! Well blah.
Swype on Android is way better. I have to retype almost every word I try to spell on this app. Regular typing, whatever that is, is just as fast. This app doesn't learn, period. Do not use!
Good, but then... 4/5
The keyboard covers a great amount of space...obliterating the material that is being corrected. Many times, the corrections are done blindly in hopes that all is well when done!
In a word: worthless! 1/5
Thought Microsoft might have a good keyboard, but this is complete garbage. The words it types—even with very careful swiping—are completely ridiculous and out of context.
The best keyboard hands down.
Favorite app 5/5
I've been using this app for years. Never disappoints.
Privacy concerns 3/5
This app sends everything I type to developer including sensitive information like credit card numbers. Love this app but have to disable it.
Great Update! 5/5
No issues at all.
Why my language isn't there? 3/5
By Barham Osman
I have sent a number of emails via in app support, to add Kurdish (soranî) to your ios app still unavailable, on your website you mention there's Kurdish kurmancî and sorani but here I cannot find
Swipe works great. Very easy to use. Happy with this app. :)
A different story 7 years ago. 3/5
I used to run this app on a Nexus 1, many years ago. SwiftKey was a new player on the market and only available for the android platform. In Europe it is very common for people to type in multiple languages. In my case, there were 3. I used this app for a very long time until android destroyed the phone with a major update. This app was nearly PERFECT back then. Fast forward to today, it only allows us to have 2 languages simultaneously and it barely keeps up with what 7 years ago seemed an easy task for this app. For a description of what is missing today, refer to other comments. What happened SwiftKey?
When it works, it’s good. 3/5
By Walkers Anon!
When it works, it’s good otherwise it stops working from time to time, not clear why.
Wants to steal your data 1/5
By Denise Callahan
Surprise, another app that wants full access. “It’s so that we can give you features!,” they say. But conveniently, it also enables them to sell the information they get from reading everything you type to advertisers.
That used to be called a “key logger” and installing it on someone’s device came with a prison term for hacking. Now it’s just a business model. It’s a brave new world we live in.
It's effective but... 3/5
So I used word flow and I loved the whole color wheel and the individual changable parts of the keyboard. Don't get me wrong this is far superior in quality but true customization is really good and fun and I loved all the keyboards I could make the layout was abit more fun with the circle and the color. But that is more a nitpick. If the word flow custom system could be put in swiftkey it would be 100% one of my swipe key apps.
Clunky, slow and doesn’t work 1/5
Try typing something and then deleting it. Slow! Try swiping, slow! Let it learn your words.. sorry you need full access. Nonsense! This is not necessary at all! Serious privacy concerns there. This app isn’t working at it should period. Don’t bother!
This keyboard pisses me off more than the stock keyboard 1/5
I can’t believe it, I expected better. The keyboard crashes so often and the auto correction is absolutely ridiculous sometimes. Also swipe functionality doesn’t always work.

We need Myanmar 🇲🇲 Keyboard.
By Billy Ray Bob Joe Jim
Hello swift key developers ....review after review has let you know that word prediction and the learning function is terrible.....why have you not responded to any one and why have you not fixed the problem? If you aren't going to fix the app why continue to offer it? It looks like that you just don't care.....
This keyboard is fantastic 4/5
I love the new features that have been introduced! I used this a year or two ago and found it a bit too glitchy. Since redownloading it a few weeks ago, I am surprised how refined it has become. Having a number row on top is super convenient and the new quick paste feature is a huge time saver. I would love to see an auto emoji feature. Sometimes autocorrect fails to fix words, but that is my only complaint. Overall, this can replace the stock keyboard.
Synchronization with external accounts eliminated 3/5
Words ending in "s" don't automatically get an " 's" suggested ending as they ought to.
The dev team isn't substantively responsive to end-users' needs.
The new (May 2019) feature that's supposed to put clipboard contents in suggestion box is inconsistent.
The punctuation selection that pops up when long pressing the period is too limited. An apostrophe and quotation mark are maddeningly missing. Another commenter made the great suggestion that SwiftKey make it customizable. Otherwise, follow Gboard's lead, which is superior in this aspect.
