The only problem I have with this keyboard is that it doesn’t have stickers
Needs curved wordflow layout
by MindNSoul7 on 2021/05/04 11:20
Wordflows curved layout was the best thing ever and Microsoft closed that project for this. So until you ad the curved layout you’ll always get a 1-star.
Go back to previous version
by Narsikus on 2021/05/04 01:00
Past several months it’s gotten worse and worse. I’m going back to stock. I used to could swipe around and it would put exactly what I wanted. Now it literally puts gibberish that isn’t real words. I guess when MS bought it, it went downhill
No Option to Automatically Add Space after Punctuation!!!
by Xpistou on 2021/05/03 16:09
I'll give it 5 stars when they add an option to automatically add a space after punctuation. And as I type this, it's automatically capitalizing words that I used in the title of this review when they don't need to be. That's pretty lame.
Full access for swiping to work?
by Debi DD on 2021/05/03 12:35
I had the Swype keyboard before the last iPhone update. I loved that keyboard. SwiftKey does not swipe. Is that because I have “Full Access” turned off? At least Google’s swiping keyboard works without having full access on, but it’s no comparison to Swype. Why did the update delete an app? I got Swype from the App Store, but it's no longer listed. 🤨 The Swiftkey keyboard is a way behind Swype.
Need New Emojis
by sushishane on 2021/05/03 11:58
SwiftKey needs to update their app so we can use the new emojis in iOS 14.5. Until then, I’ll be using the stock keyboard
Increases speed and accuracy
by janpz on 2021/05/03 03:58
The keyboard learns from your style and habits and after a time, can not only predict how to finish a word, but which words likely follow. For instance, in my case, of I type Monty, SwiftKey offers up Python and the Holy Grail, one word at a time. All I need to do is click on each word. If you've made a typo, and the typo becomes part of the predictive dictionary, you can hard press the word and a pop-up asks if you wish to remove it from the dictionary.
Update

Update the app please
by KV BOMBER on 2021/05/02 22:58
We need the latest emojis from ios 14.5.
Buggy
by limberjoelx on 2021/05/02 11:08
I know you guys don't even see the reviews but there's a big that the keyboard change it automatically to the stock iphone one in the middle of the conversation and that's so annoying. I am on iPhone 8 plus (64gb). But if it wasn't that they keyboard is just good
Definitely the best

Intuitive, flexible, and customizable, SwiftKey is the app you didn't know you needed.

Worst "predictive" typing engine possible
by Amaris333 on 2021/04/30 02:23
Cannot accurately predict my current word, let alone my next word. I end up spending more time correcting this keyboard than I do swiping. Going back to iPhone's keyboard. Okada (I swiped "please"). Please, please someone recreate Swype.
MAKE MORE TRANSPARENT&MOTION THEMES!

I have been using SwiftKey for nearly 5 years now and the functionality has been improved greatly but we have yet to see any cosmetic update!!

Need to stay on top of Apple software updates
by Hdhhdyhd on 2021/04/28 16:46
I’ve used this app for literally YEARS. To the point where I even forgot it wasn’t my “stock” keyboard. Enter iOS 14.5. With the new update, comes new emojis. I could see them when other people used them but I couldn’t find them. My phone was up to date with the newest software and I couldn’t figure out why I didn’t have these emojis. Come to find out it was actually this app that didn’t have them because it hasn’t been updated to include the new emojis. You would think with a software update as mainstream and talked about as this one, these people would make a point to stay on top of their own updates. I have now deleted this app for the first time in at least 8 years and will now have to get used to the standard Apple keyboard 🙄🤷🏻‍♂️
Uhhh
by Shawshank999999 on 2021/04/27 22:47
I've been using SwiftKey for like a decade... It was flawless. Idk whats happening lately but my autocorrect is horrible. Was there an update that messed with it? I had to turn the keyboard off it was so bad
Great keyboard ported from Android
by Chris 2667 on 2021/04/27 21:00
Great keyboard that came over from Android but I miss a few of the customization options that the Android version has, I'm assuming this is Apples way of controlling things so I can't say it's SwiftKey. Two bugs I have noticed, one is the keyboard keeps defaulting back to the Apple keyboard in iOS 14.5 and when playing music from Tidal and I use voice dictation on SwiftKey, the music keeps playing in the background, I assume you want to pause playback during voice dictation....
Lowercase characters needs to be bigger
by popeye1982in on 2021/04/27 05:09
Lowercase characters needs to be a bit bigger and bold(not a big deal). Otherwise it's a perfect app. I am not sure if there is an option in the settings to increase the font size. Could not find any though. Uppercase letters are good.
Awful
by tokkles84 on 2021/04/26 15:04

Better on android
by kay@mathews on 2021/04/26 03:55
Adding to my review. Why isn't there a Christian cross emoji? No Christians at Swiftkey? I'm reading all these recent reviews and seems I'm not the only 1 that thinks it's gottennworse@! Swiftkey no response? Even worse than last time I updated. My husband is having the same problem. Constantly hitting wrong keys and it's not autocorrecting. Update. Is it the app or have my fingers gotten fatter?! I.constantly tap wrong letter. Switched from android to ios due to signal issues. This app is terrible on iOS. On Android you could long press key for punctuation and it never kept switching back and forth. You could resize the screen also. Why can't this app be the same? I'd change but can't find another like the android version. For iOS to supposedly be better, this isn't the only app that's not the same. Come on iPhone!
Keyboard keeps changing from SwiftKey
by dhemzziey on 2021/04/25 22:22
I’ve been using SwiftKey for years I can’t even remember. Whenever i buy a new phone, I always download it first..... I just got an iPhone 2 months ago but SwiftKey keeps acting up on it.. my keyboard keeps changing from SwiftKey to other keyboard. What’s happening....: its so annoying
Greatest keyboard ever

Best keyboard app🖤
by Daanslam on 2021/04/24 22:52
I use this as my main keyboard. They had the flow to text before apple put it out on their standard keyboard. You can add a number row I p top and my favorite part, any photo you want as your keyboard background. Love it.
Nice one

Used to be a good app....
by Ckbladesmith15 on 2021/04/24 13:48
This app was great before Microsoft took over. It's now highly inaccurate and I'm finding that I have to go back and correct it constantly. Just use the one that comes with your phone.
Best Multilingual Keyboard
by keptore on 2021/04/24 02:03
I've been an avid user of SwiftKey for a long time on IOS due to haptic feedback and the amazing swipe-type experience that it provides, but as of the last update, where support for Hawaiian was added, it changed the game for me. SwiftKey singlehandedly became the only keyboard on IOS that supports multilingual typing and swipe type for Hawaiian, and they won my heart. Thank you to all the developers for doing this, and for adding so many supported languages. True bliss. Mahalo!

Poor execution.
by w0lff_ on 2021/04/17 00:11
Emoji and microphone buttons are too close resulting in constant closing of the microphone setup screen. The app is also biased against apple as it does not offer the same amount of languages as it does for Android.
Recent bugs
by Nakaruxx on 2021/04/16 23:34
I’ve been using this app for almost two years now and I’ve loved it. However today I noticed the keyboard kept crashing and switching to my iPhone keyboard, then come back and crash again. it’s been making it very difficult to type. Also the function to remove guessed words doesn’t work; I am perpetually stuck with this keyboard forever correcting me typing “morning” into “ohayou” because I was a weaboo many years ago. No matter how many times I tell the app to remove this word, it stays there, and I text my supervisor “ this ohayou I will be late” more than once already. it’s pretty embarrassing... please fix, it will be five star rating otherwise. I love the custom options and it does a good job learning my speech. :)
Button press Latency
by A͙D͙ K͙I͙L͙L͙E͙R͙ on 2021/04/16 23:07
This app receives a one star from me because every time you type on this keyboard the button presses are delayed by enough to notice. Don’t recommend. I have an iPhone 12 so no my phone is not outdated
Add this features please:
by Yemen Aden on 2021/04/16 13:03
The haptics feedback doesn’t work with words predictive Make this feature in the keyboard you can translate languages and past any text in the keyboard and translated like google Gboard If I want to search about any emojis plz make this feature also works without needs to internet Add new themes especially on iPhone X make themes using the full place on the bottom like this theme ( Nickel X ) but we need themes colorful like this theme (Shooting Stars ) and I hope if you can make option to make this theme or any theme be in full using the free bottom on iPhone X At the end thank you so much for making this keyboard much love
Latest update broke my keyboard
by Spartan526 on 2021/04/16 02:57
SwiftKey was working fine for a while but after the latest update, the keyboard kept moving up and down, as if it was restarting. It usually only does this when I switch to SwiftKey from another keyboard, but for example, in discord, after sending a message it does this every time after 2 seconds and it gets so annoying because I type very fast and then the keyboard suddenly moves, disrupting my typing and slowing me down, as well as making me type the wrong letters and I have to retype. Please fix or let me know of a fix as SwiftKey is not usable like this.

MICROSOFT, SWIFTKEY** REVIEW
by KATHLEENA THERESE, JOHNSON**** on 2021/04/10 17:56
THE TECHNOLOGICAL MICROSOFT SWIFTKEY KEYBOARD HAS A TRANSCENDENTAL ELEMENT THAT ENGAGES THE MICROSOFT TECHNOLOGY SOFTWARE INTO AN SHEER ENJOYMENT OF USE &AND EFFICIENCY IN COMPUTERIZE KEYBOARD DATA INPUT. KUDOS**, TO MICROSOFT Corporation, TECHNOLOGY INNOVATION CREATED BY YOUR COMPANY ENTERPRISE, YET AGAIN.
Degrading with development.
by Richpost on 2021/04/10 17:32
I have used SwiftKey from the beginning. I have noticed that the keyboard has gotten less efficient overtime to now I am actually looking for something different. I used to be able to depend on SwiftKey to predict and correct misspelled words correctly. Not anymore, I now find myself going back and correcting SwiftKey mistakes, words in wrong tense or even a word that doesn't even fit into the context. looking for a smarter keyboard, SwiftKey is drunk.
App errors.
by KayBest1 on 2021/04/10 12:28
Does not have the predicted words that is typed. It often changes the correctly typed word to something else, at least three (3) times then the forced key has to be clicked to keep the word that was initially typed. It changes people’s names after you type the correct letters in all the right spaces THEN, it tells how many errors the typist made.
Meh. Add resize to large keys and you get my business
by jscgrey on 2021/04/10 12:26
What makes SwiftKey any different or any better than another choice??? What I really need to decide to use Swift Key over Google or Apple’s native keyboard is larger keys. I wear readers, constantly on and off my face. Life with readers is a daily battle to see, take off the glasses to see beyond arms distance, then back again to glasses on. How about giving us larger bold keys that those of us that wear glasses would benefit from having on a daily basis. You would make yourself different than the other options and I would have a solid reason to use your keyboard. Cheers

Review for SwiftKey
by BratA Tact on 2021/04/05 02:13
I love SwiftKey. It's almost like having someone typing for you. It's a blessing to me right now because my hands and fingers are getting so bad I can barely type anymore myself. I THANK GOD FOR SWIFTKEY I have so many miss spelled words.

by Bribentyl on 2021/04/02 08:18
I switched from Android and I'm very disappointed that you do not allow ios users the option to add the symbols and punctuation for quickly adding to my typing. Instead I'm forced to click the 123 button and search blindly for cumin symbols stock as @ " # ' /. Not cool.
Swipe or SwiftKey flow does not work
by Jeffsbaker on 2021/04/01 18:54
I like that the keys are slightly bigger than the regular keyboard. But I have SwiftKey flow checked for gliding from key to key and it does not work! Also the backspace key is kind of slow when holding it down. RESPONSE TO DEVELOPERS: I don’t think a screen recording will show anything useful. I have “Microsoft SwiftKey Flow” checked in settings but when I slide my fingers over the letters all that prints is the last letter my finger touches. Does no one else have this problem?
Bummed

I’ve been using swift key since high school. I left for ios default keyboard some years ago but always kept this downloaded. Can’t remember why I left because I loved SwiftKey. It introduced me to swype texting and I no longer do that. The customization was great back then and it looks even better now. I rarely ever write reviews. I rarely even star either so the fact I took the time for this says a lot. Good job y’all
This is way better on Android.
by McChorizo on 2021/03/30 11:35
I've been using the SwiftKey keyboard for a some time now and I recently switched over to Apple and boy does this app provide lackluster results on iOS. Text prediction is bad it's almost as if it doesn't learn from my typing. There is zero emoji prediction. It's also worth pointing out that this keyboard has no secondary function for keys so you can't hold any of them to get a special character. There is also an absolute absence of keyboard customization it's just a reskinned iOS keyboard and completely fails in comparison to it's Android counterpart.

I am uninstalling due to the disappointing lack of features compared to the Google play version.
Better than apple, worse than Samsung
by BossTrooper18 on 2021/03/25 17:14
I wanted to try using an iPhone for a bit to see if I liked it and because my dad had just upgraded I got his old phone, usually I use the galaxy note 8 and the 2 things I wish I had here that I have on the note are being able to hold on characters for a secondary function, for example my most used on is the question mark which is a long press on the m key, the other thing is having the comma next to the period instead of in a long press menu with the period, although having the mini drawer is still much better and faster than the standard iPhone keyboard method where you have to go to secondary characters

Love This Keyboard -Give IOS Users Full Function
by gkpilgrim on 2021/03/20 12:59
SwiftKey keyboard is the best keyboard available by far. I have used it for years on Android phones. Text prediction is so accurate and helpful. I recently switched to the IPhone and was so disappointed to see that I cannot have the keyboard I have loved so much. I hope Microsoft will enable resizing, larger keys, and the two function lettering that makes this Keyboard the best.
No Vietnamese!!

Go back to combing typing & swiping for the same word.
by Anchorman428 on 2018/09/01 18:22
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.
Still The Best, But "Flow" Accuracy Has Deteriorated

First, let me note that this is NOT a negative review. I still recommend the app, but I do see an issue happening that I think should be recognized. I have been using SwiftKey for years, since long before Microsoft bought them out. It is/was a fantastic keyboard that you could actually see improve as it learned your patterns. Lately, however, (maybe the past 6-8 months?) the accuracy of my flow typing has deteriorated to the point I'm spending more time fixing its errors than typing my messages. I actually tried switching back to the stock IOS keyboard for a bit, though I ended up coming back to SwiftKey. I'd forgotten how IOS polices and censors "bad" language and that doesn't sit well with me, and their emoji and punctuation access is awkward as heck. SwiftKey still soundly trounces them in those areas. I really hope that this issue sorts itself out, because aside from that, the keyboard is the best out there, hands down. The customizations, the way they've set up how you access emojis and punctuation, and other options are top-notch and no other keyboard I'm aware of comes close. For the time being, I've somewhat mitigated my issue by greatly slowing down my flow typing, which is ok but defeats the purpose of faster typing using flow.
Not pleased
by enter my review on 2018/04/20 19:31
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 this app buuuutttttt........
by Cathey98 on 2017/11/18 01:40
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.
Bummer keyboard
by sizzlin'soap on 2018/10/31 14:13
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 (:
Sometimes works correctly
by sdewey99 on 2018/10/20 19:43
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.
Love!!!
by AmandaLG86 on 2019/10/20 08:06
I don't know what I'd do without this app!!! Actually Yea I do!!! I'd be spending a hell of a lot more time typing!!! Thank you SwiftKey!! The only disadvantage is not having the option to go into SwiftKey settings to view/edit the "dictionary" that is automatically created specifically as I use the App! I'll keep checking back after any updates the app has just in case this feature is added!! Or if there is an option to do so but I've somehow over looked it, please let me know!! There's quite a few words I've misspelled while rushing that saved in my "dictionary" of words, some aren't even words!! Very frustrating having one of those pop up several times while I'm typing! Even worse when I correctly spell words but SwiftKey will change/substitute it to my accidental jibberish 😳😐!! Now these nonsense words are piling up and popping up way too often!!! Very frustrating! I still feel it's a five star app just give us the option to edit our dictionary!! Thanks SwiftKey!!!
Good as they get!
by Stihlmanthrunthru on 2019/12/08 01:12
Been using this app for year's now and would not send a message without it for the simple fact of the time alone it saves you compared to other apps or even apples that comes with your phone can not compare and can not stand when my phone will change over to one of the others that is in my phone like I am not going to notice that it is not SwiftKey. This app bar none hands down is the best free app out there for messaging, if you are looking for a messaging app don't waste your time looking any further and download this one now I promise you will not regret it. It also has themes I almost forgot to mention so you can customize your keyboard to your liking which is neat specially during holidays they have themes for each holiday and all free and who doesn't like free. Hope this helps someone who is considering this free app download with their decision!
Needs improvement although best for me
by CasperUllal on 2018/02/08 11:02
I tried Word Flow and Gboard keyboards before I settled on this keyboard. Word Flow is deprecated so there is no point discussing it. Gboard has a couple of features that are nicer than this keyboard - example, searching emojis. However, the predictive capabilities of this keyboard are much better than Gboard or any other keyboard including Apple's built-in keyboard. This is why I keep using it. The negatives of this keyboard for me are: 1) Inability to search for emojis. 2) The predictive text bar doesn't show up in some situations but I can't tell what the reason is. 3) The emojis move around - especially the first part and if you try to send multiple emojis of the same type you may end up sending some other emojis if you keep tapping in the same spot. It doesn't make sense for the frequently used emojis to move while you are using them. 4) The period key doesn't have a single quote option. I find this annoying as I use it all the time. It would be nice to be able to customize what punctuation options are available on the period.
Its a shame Microsoft abandoned Word Flow
by Raikon87 on 2017/09/26 00:07
The swipe prediction of SwiftKey pales in comparison to Word Flow. Word flow would let you swipe fast and would recognize every word...with SwiftKey it doesn't recognize words if you swipe fast, so you have to spend time swiping slow or spend a lot of time correcting. SwiftKey's only saving grace is being able to swipe complete a word from mid word to correct it. however that doesn't make up for its faults. Also they need to add an apostrophe to the first page punctuation button. It's a shame Microsoft abandoned word flow for this. Also if this program want backed by Microsoft I wouldn't be using it.... It REQUIRES FULL ACCESS which I'm hesitant to give even though it's backed by Microsoft. Who knows what data could be getting mined from what you type, that Microsoft isn't aware of. Either way, with all that said, it's the best option on the market since Microsoft took down word flow, so I use it.... But it's far from perfect. Maybe one day Microsoft will start up word flow again or integrate it into SwiftKey... One can only hope.
Fantastic app
by Ahi kdnzidbdiane on 2019/04/11 17:56
Great, smooth, and very well designed, user friendly keyboard. My only problem is autocorrect, autocorrect is great with English but is awful with Arabic. It's always changing things that I typed correctly to weird unintelligible words that aren't even close to what I wanted to say so what I send ends up being gibberish. To be fair, fixing autocorrect for Arabic would be too much to ask because the lexicon is diverse and very regional; all I'm asking for is the ability to turn off autocorrect for a certain language by itslef. I can't give up the English autocorrect but I also can't live with the Arabic one... I hope that option is not too difficult for the developers to add. I feel bad for giving the app 3 stars but having to manually re-correct two to three words of every sentence I type is quite annoying and I feel like 3 stars is the best way to get through the developers. Will update my review as soon as the option to turn off autocorrect for certain languages is added, I check for updates of this app very frequently
Not perfect, but I'll never go back to the stock keyboard.
by Skler5467 on 2018/11/19 22:41
I've been using SwiftKey for about 3 years and have seen its ups and downs. It started out with occasional glitches that would cause the keyboard to close and swap back to the stock keyboard until I reopened whatever app I was using, but even then, the functionality was worth the minor inconvenience. Nowadays, it's 99% stable and its predictive engine knows me so well that I never want to go back to the stock keyboard. The designs look great (I've been using Shooting Stars for years now), the swipe typing is super efficient, and its subtle modification of my typing map makes my accuracy spot on whether I'm typing with one or two hands. The only remaining glitch is that sometimes, the text doesn't continue to scroll down, so I have to manually scroll down or at worst, switch keyboards and back, but the amount of time saved by its features makes it well worth it. Try it out for a week or two and you'll fall in love with it.
Hate it more than I Love It
by atandreolli00 on 2017/12/28 05:55
The swipe feature was the main reason I downloaded SwiftKey. And I love that feature. I'm not into the whole customization aspect so I just picked a keyboard that looked most like apple's stock keyboard. The sizing and spacing was different so it took a little bit of getting used to. I tapped a lot of wrong keys in the beginning. The word prediction and auto-correct is TERRIBLE. It is so frustrating to use. I'll type a very normal word that I have typed MANY times correctly and it will change it to some random word. It slows me down a lot. You'd think that the advertised feature that the app "learns your typing style to know what words you choose and use frequently" would actually work...but it doesn't....not even in the slightest. I feel like I am too committed to switch back to Apple's keyboard or a different 3rd party...but overall, I hate this keyboard app way more than I love it. It slows me down a ton while trying to the something simple. Even the swipe feature will never give me the words I want. So yeah, I'm not a big fan unfortunately.
Frustrated
by Tahl000 on 2018/11/04 19:02
I like the look of this swype app and I like that it allows to have multiple languages with ease of transition directly on the same screen but it has quite a few flaws. If you want to swipe two letter word and the letters are close to each other, it won't swype. It's ability to predict your words is inconsistent. Short cuts to punctuation marks are practically none existent (unless I don't know them) I hate switching to the number keypad every time I want to use a symbol. The shortcuts they do have (to the right are a pain to use. With the previous app I used, each letter could be pressed for a second longer and it would instead display a corresponding symbol. For example hold g and you'd get a parentheses. Hold j and your get a colon, etc. Also the app would recognize when you'd swype names from your contacts and it allowed you to save words you want to app to recognize. I also don't know how to switch to the regular Apple keyboard from this apps keyboard. I love swyping but this app sometimes makes it frustrating to swype.
Used to be great, now not so much. Great if you want more typos
by LGB987 on 2020/01/22 03:24
I’ve had Swift key for a while. I used the love it! The swiping, the customization, the autocorrect, everything. However, recently something changed, and SwiftKey has been causing me more typos than when I use my apple keyboard. For whatever reason it stopped autocorrecting a lot of the time, BUT autocorrecting me when I don’t want it to. It’s really annoying At first I thought it was a combination of my horrendous spelling and mediocre typing skills. But recently my Apple keyboard switched on, and I noticed how much faster and correctly I was typing. It was like shedding the skin that is swiftkey. I realized that it was swiftkey and not me (okay maybe a little me, but the apple keyboard is able to keep up better with and for me). One feature that I do like is the emoji searching (something apple doesn’t have) . They could improve the results though. After getting really annoyed I finally deleted Swiftkey, I’ll see if I end up downloading it again idk
Great app, 2 major problems.
by Sjsksksks on 2018/04/01 04:29
I love this app and all of the features it has, especially the slide-to-text feature. It works very well and I use it a lot. Although, there are a couple of things that really, really annoy me about this app. 1. When you misspell something, it doesn't underline the word in red telling you it's misspelled. The auto-correct function does not do as well as the standard, Apple keyboard does, even when texting normal opposed to the sliding feature. 2. You cannot use Siri to type for you with this keyboard. On the standard apple keyboard, there is a microphone icon in the bottom right corner of the keyboard where you can speak and it will type for you, SwiftKey does not offer this feature unfortunately, which is very annoying to me and seems like a main feature they would have. Overall, this application is great and I use it daily. I urge SwiftKey to fix these few issues and I think it would put them on the top!
Great keyboard
by Gene Yus on 2020/10/18 15:42
I love your keyboard. Can you; 1) introduce a theme that resembles the keyboard you use on your computer with the numbers in a 10-key format' 2) introduce the ability to customize the keys to type a word or symbol using the 'touch and hold' action like the [?!.] key does. Ex, many folks use certain words or punctuation often. If I could program, say the 'W' key using the 'touch and hold' action one could program that key to type say 'set to default'. This way one touch (and hold) would save 13 keystrokes! I love the little down arrow in the lower right corner to dismiss the keyboard. I love the ability to move the cursor using the space bar. Using this action, the space bar isn't so sensitive that it moves the cursor inadvertently causing grammar errors. I'm giving you 5 stars and would be very excited if these features were added. Thanks.
Not helpful anymore
by I Ms Snow I on 2018/07/08 15:29
So, I initially installed this app because the regular iPhone keyboard was terrible at predicting my Spanglish and because of the beautiful choices of aesthetics it provided. I’m bilingual and I’m constantly switching between the two. Swiftkey was excellent at first doing this, but as time passed not only did the bilingual perk went away, it doesn’t even predict correctly for just one language. It constantly suggests words that I do not use and it doesn’t improve because it does not add the words I’m using. Also, I reserve my right to cuss and for some God forsaken reason it won’t let me do that either it just switches it with another similar completely unrelated word. I decided to give the standard iPhone keyboard a try and it just turns out it is either pretty much the same, similar or better than Swiftkey was at first. Nevertheless, I don’t need the ongoing struggle Swiftkey was giving me so I deleted the app and stayed with the original. Hence, this review because I’m open to coming back if the developers fix all of the issues I’ve been and everyone’s been complaining about.
Best keyboard ever but..
by OmerWow on 2017/12/29 20:27
This is seriously the best keyboard I've ever used. I tried them all: Gboard, Fleksy, Grammerly, Minumm, Apple's own keyboard and more, but I always come back to this one because it's just works so good in pretty much every category. I have a small request though: if you can, please do something with the wasted space on the iPhone X, either eliminate it or do something useful with it (in the app settings there's no wasted space for example and that's nice). Also, on 3D touch enabled devices, can you please do that moving the cursor up and down and not only left or right will be an option as well? I know that when you reach the end of the row it automatically does that, but it's not the most comfortable thing... Another complaint I have is that the keyboard doesn't insert a space after things like a .,?! and that's pretty annoying. Last complaint is that there's no long pressing a letter for options like ":()*% etc.
SwiftKey is a slow learner
by expressgoner0101 on 2019/10/01 15:31
I had Word Flow on my old phone and when that died, I had to find another swipe keyboard because apparently Word Flow isn't supported any longer (you could still use it if you'd already downloaded it though). I've been using SwiftKey for a few weeks now and it's so frustrating! You would think after that amount of time it would have 'learned' by now that I'm trying to type 'and,' not 'abs' or 'Ave,' or 'neighbor' instead of 'Bridgette' or 'beige.' Its predictive text capability is absolute garbage. A lot of the time it comes up with completely nonsensical words that I've never used and certainly aren't commonly used in wider social circles than mine. I tried to give it some time to see if it would 'remember' which words and phrases I use the most so its predictive text would become more accurate, but that hasn't been the case. I spend more time correcting its mistakes or just typing out individual letters (which obviously isn't the point of a swipe keyboard) than I do getting accurate swipes. I'll be looking for another keyboard and can't wait to stop using this one.
Really.
by Igot1too on 2021/01/02 17:50
So I've used this app for some years. I have since switched to iPhone and all the keyboards I purchased when using samsung are no longer in my account. I can't restore them? This was before all the keyboards were free. I purchased several and I would either like the keyboards or my money. Additionally, the "contact us" within the app is a scam. Everytime I try to submit a question it gives and error message about my connection. I take it they don't want complaints. If you are thinking of getting this app, sure why not, it's all free now. If you purchased keyboards in the past and can't find them or access them in your account consider it money down the drain.. !!!! Update: someone did get back to me about this problem. And basically said that iPhones have limited capabilities on the keyboards which is ridiculous. And no I still couldn't get the ones I purchased on Samsung cause of this limited capabilities. And apparently no one is working to increase the capabilities so we could have more crea4ive keyboards instead of 12 they offer.
Most recent update killed emoji function
by 2258901 on 2020/05/16 21:52
I have been a dedicated SwiftKey user since Apple started allowing third-party keyboards. I am appalled by the most recent update. While I use SwiftKey for text, I use Apple's emoji keyboard. I use Apple's emoji keyboard because it highlights all words in a message in orange and allows the user to convert the words into relevant emojis. This feature was compatible with SwiftKey's keyboard until the most recent SwiftKey app update. After the most recent SwiftKey update, Apple's emoji keyboard does not recognize words typed with SwiftKey and cannot highlight them in orange to allow emoji substitution. This problem was not generated by any change in Apple's software. I have tested the compatability between SwiftKey and Apple's emoji keyboard on multiple iPhones running multiple iOS versions (both current and outdated). My experimentation has conclusively revealed that the most recent SwiftKey update killed compatability between SwiftKey and Apple's emoji keyboard. I will unfortunately be unable to use SwiftKey as my primary keyboard (after years of dedication to SwiftKey) until this issue is remedied.
A giant step down
by LethalMartini on 2018/07/10 00:38
I give this three stars instead of just one because it is technically the best option at the moment. Previously, that would have been the now deprecated Word Flow (which I'm still using and writing this review on), which was a great keyboard that Microsoft chose to abandon (after putting in a ton of work on it I assume) in favor of buying and marketing an inferior existing product. Word Flow brought me reluctantly back to swipe-style keyboards because of its unmatched accuracy. I can practically randomly wiggle my finger around on the keyboard and it somehow knows what I'm trying to say. Swift key requires more time executing precise swipes and making corrections that it takes to just type in the standard Apple keyboard. Yes, Swift Key a little more stable and maybe has a few features that people prefer but please, Microsoft, you own the algorithm from Word Flow that can make this keyboard great... Integrate that tech into Swift Key or give/sell it to a developer who will.
Best alternative
by l11arcangel on 2019/05/07 00:40
This is the best alternative to the default iOS keyboard in my opinion. I picked this keyboard particularly for swipe functionality, GBoard being the other option. I find this one a lot more pleasing due to its simplicity. The default theme is clean and minimal, and I don't mind the SwiftKey logo being on the spacebar (although a premium option to remove it would be ideal). I do have one suggestion for the keyboard, an option to remove the globe/emoji button altogether or being replaced with something more useful and linking the emoji button on the bottom left to SwiftKey's implementation if possible. On my Xs, the default emoji button on the bottom left leaves SwiftKey's emoji button redundant. I can remove the system emoji keyboard but will be left with a huge space. Using SwiftKey with two emoji buttons at the moment. Thanks for the beautiful keyboard!
Please Add Long-Press Characters.
by Joshua D. on 2018/07/29 12:38
When using Swype you could access numbers and characters by long-pressing the on screen letters and it saved time because you didn't have to click the "123" button to access them. Would you please add this feature to the Swift Key keyboard please? So, if I long-press on say the letter "x" it would input an exclamation point "!". To me that saves so much time instead of always having to click the button to access those characters. You could put all the numbers for long-press on the top letters and all the other characters everywhere else. I really hope you'll consider my request please,thank you. It would save so much time and make typing with Swift Key so much faster in my opinion. Thank you again if you'll consider this request and hopefully implement into the keyboard. Or maybe it could be an option to turn on for users like myself who are used to it or find that they like and enjoy how much quicker it really is. Also, when I go down a new line on my iPhone 8 plus, it doesn't pull up the screen, it keeps hiding what I'm tomb topping typing and I have to keep pushing the screen up on my own. Would you please fix the app so that i don't have to do this? It's very annoying that I cannot see what I'm typing until I thumb up the screen on my iPhone. Thank you and thanks for all the work and time put into this nice keyboard.
Two steps forward, two steps back.
by DennySF415 on 2020/08/19 07:16
I've said it before and I'll say it again--1 star until you change the placement of that bloody voice to text button. It's in the worst spot possible!!! Move it to the left of the emoji button. I absolutely HATE where the voice to text mic button is now. I've accidentally hit it a bazillion times when trying to hit the emoji button. Then it opens that other page up which is incredibly frustrating!!! This definitely needs to be fixed! Otherwise, pretty good but words still come out jumbled and I have to constantly go back and delete words and start all over. This is probably the best keyboard for the iPhone although I'm always left scratching my head when some words come out a jumbled mess. Definitely room for improvement. Also frustrating is that it keeps defaulting back to the native Apple keyboard which drives me batty. I often have to tap on it several times to bring it back. Why is it not possible to keep the keyboard static and not bouncing back and forth?!
Needs improvements
by Apple_App Gamer on 2020/10/03 20:18
Microsoft SwiftKey is very usable and it's the keyboard I mostly use. However, there needs some improvements. For example, the default iOS keyboard is easier to use because the letters are larger and there is a dark background which contrasts with the letters, making it a lot easier to see. Another needed improvement is need to include a suggestion box for emojis after typing a word, just like the default iOS keyboard. Microsoft needs to include Microsoft SwiftKey in their own App page under "Microsoft," just like they do with all their Microsoft products. The reason being that because it's not included under Microsoft's App page, Microsoft SwiftKey is not well heard of. And finally, I would like to suggest that it would be very neat for the consumers to have options to choose how they would like to style their Microsoft SwiftKey keyboard.
Used to be much better
by gatoverde225 on 2018/03/09 00:11
I loved this keyboard until a few updates ago when it forgot my writing style and vocabulary. Ever since then, it has actively resisted learning the words I frequently use. It honestly feels like censorship because these are words that adults use and I use them ALL THE TIME. I thought it was supposed to learn from ME . . . It always suggests something else. It's a miracle when it actually DOES remember. Which is only with words that don't have many potential replacements. Today it began to make ridiculously loud click sounds, even near the lowest volume setting on my phone. I had to turn off the key clicks on it because it was too much. I'm on a 6s with the newest OS. I really hope that this keyboard can be made to once again work with me, rather than against me. Some of the suggestions/corrections are just plain awful. Especially for names. They should allow us to add words if they can't fix this.
Learn from Swype.
by icalc on 2019/01/10 00:53
I was sad to let go of Swype because it is no longer maintained. SwiftKey is the best replacement I found, better than gboard in many respects, however I wish it was as good as Swype for glide typing. I suggest the developers learn from using Swype. The most impactful improvement, for me, would be to allow deleting the entire last word using backspace, if done right after the glide stroke. This prevents me from wasting time deleting long words guessed incorrectly by SwiftKey. The next improvement is automatic insertion of a space after a comma or question mark. A more sophisticated improvement is smart insertion, where spacing is automatically adjusted when inserting new text in the middle of a sentence. Finally, I wish I could curate words I teach the keyboard, instead of hoping that some inefficient (insert your favorite strong word here) machine learning algorithm will figure out what I need. Hoping to see these soon in a future update.
Hands down THE VERY BEST "Swpye" app EVER!!
by CRS 55 on 2018/08/09 21:14
So I've used quite a few of the "Swpye" apps before this one but once I downloaded this and now that I've been using it I tell my friends and family all the time,it's like it reads my mind!! Once you've used it for awhile it seriously "gets to know you" like a friend would :) Even beyond that brilliance comes the beautiful personalization options, and for the love of God I FINALLY know how and often use my clipboard!! I tell literally every single person that I engage with on more than a five minute basis about this app! Yous Guys are killing it man! And thank you!! (My only ensy weensy teeny tiny thing that I would love to add is the text to talk ability. If it's already on her,which it probably is then PLEASE SOMEONE TELL ME HOW TO FIND IT! And if not...then just a small suggestion ;)
by far the best non-apple keyboard
by actuallyben on 2019/03/04 01:40
I have owned dozens of keyboard apps since the update allowing different keyboards and this is definitely my favorite. You don't have to pay to get upgrades like other annoying apps which I appreciate a lot. The swipe works so well and you can customize your keyboard in so many ways. You can add a picture to the background and change your auto capitalization and auto correct. I would without a doubt recommend this app to anyone looking for a faster way to text or even just looking for a cuter keyboard. I also appreciate that they have their own built in emoji keyboard. With other keyboard apps, when you switch over to emojis, when you try to go back to your keyboard it would only take you to the Apple keyboard. This one goes back to the swift keyboard.
I LOVE swift key!!!
by punk_262x on 2018/08/09 22:46
Hi my name is Kaitlyn...I have been using swift key for a bout a year now and I couldnt be more happy with it! I love all of the designs on it...like when I am missing my mom I can make my keyboard a picture of her. Not only can you put pictures but there are awesome designs that you can choose to be your keyboard...but my favorite is designing my own and using pictures! You can change the settings for how you want it, they automatically capitalize words or sentences that should be capitalized, and there is even a swipe setting in it! Of course though, if you don't want any of that stuff then you can always change it off in settings. Swift key gets to know how you type and what you are trying to say, even when you don't know what your trying to say😂. I hope you enjoy swift key!
Vastly good, regrettable hindrances
by Selekate on 2018/12/13 13:22
DOESN'T WORK WITH SMART INVERSION: photo themes stay the same color in smart inversion, but keys turn dark—completely illegible. If you use color inversion often, e.g., to reduce glare at night on white documents, you'd need to manually switch keyboards every time. OR REGULAR INVERSION: dark backgrounds are easier on the eyes. Enabling total color inversion makes the text legible on the background, at the cost of being blinding. For the purpose of inverting to reduce white space eye strain, swiftkey is defunct. INABILITY TO CHANGE KEY COLOR: above could be solved by enabling white keys on custom keyboards, which would also benefit users who want to use light photo backgrounds. INABILITY TO RESET TAP MAP: I'd like to reset the tap map after switching dominant hands for swiping and texting. There's no option to do this. That's lackluster. I don't want to uninstall and reinstall swiftkey; first, that's a silly solution for a straightforward problem, second, it would reset various type predictions. It's apparently possible to preserve predictions through making an account, but that's definitely not an obvious solution. New emoji/gif/whatever bar is beautiful and elegant though. Despite above problems, makes swiftkey the best tool around in my books.
How has this issue been missed after 2 updates?
by ThatGuyNotRay on 2020/11/16 20:15
I had used SwiftKey for quite some time before this issue had come up, and before this bug, it was essentially a 5-star (minus the fact that there’s no option to remove the distracting Microsoft watermark from the space bar). Now, 9 times out of 10 when I pull up the keyboard on any app, and I’ve tried quite a few, it flashes the SwiftKey keyboard for half a second or less and then reverts to the generic Apple keyboard. This has been happening for at least a couple of months now, even after some updates to the app. My hopes were dashed after the second update that I saw from the App Store, and it didn’t help a thing. I tried removing the English keyboard from my settings, and this worked for about 30 minutes until I had pulled my keyboard up in a different app. Uninstalled and reinstalled a week ago, and it worked for a single day until this issue came back rearing its ugly head. Deeply disappointed for an appbreaking bug. iOS 14.1, iPhone X.
My Keyboard of Choice, Still Have a Wishlist
by Andomor on 2018/03/16 23:36
I enjoy using this keyboard, and absolutely prefer it over Apple’s stock tapper. And the latest updated added some much needed/appreciated features. However, I do have to knock one star off for some features that are still woefully missing. First: This is Microsoft’s official/supported mobile add-on keyboard, is it not? Since this is the case, I cannot fathom the reason that it does not have the best and defining feature of WordFlow (Microsoft’s previous mobile add-on keyboard before acquiring SwiftKey): the curved, one-handed keyboard. I sincerely hope that this distinctive and awesome feature from WordFlow is being diligently worked on for SwiftKey. Second: 3D Touch functionality in SwiftKey is atrocious compared to Apple’s native keyboard. With Apple’s keyboard, I can use 3D Touch to move the cursor in any direction I please, not just left and right. And with a second push of the 3D Touch, I can highlight without having to lift my thumb (or finger) to touch the body of text. These two features of 3D Touch in Apple’s native keyboard are extremely useful and convenient, and I would very much like to see them make their way to SwiftKey. So if they add WordFlow’s curved keyboard and vertical movement/hightlighting to 3D Touch, then Five Stars (from me) is just an update away!
Frustrating... I miss Swype
by StillwaterCreek on 2019/02/11 00:55
I switched to SwiftKey after Swype was abandoned, but like so many others here I'm growing more and more frustrated with it. It doesn't learn from me and frequently suggests words that are not only incorrect but are strange and unknown. Half the time when I try to type "we" it enters a lone "e". What the heck? "E" by itself is not even a word in English. Who stocked the word library in this thing? And why do I have to delete incorrect words letter by letter? If Swype got it wrong, a single backspace deleted the entire word quickly, and it really did learn from its mistakes. Punctuation is especially frustrating. Swype had awesome shortcuts for exclamation and question marks, and automatically inserted proper spacing. SwiftKey is a mess in this regard. I really do wonder sometimes if this is worth the hassle, any faster than hunt and peck. UPDATE: I just found Gboard by Google. Still not as good as Swype but waaaay better than Swiftkey. Plus surprisingly it doesn't require full access.
Absolutely love it!! Must read review!
by Spazboy426 on 2019/06/03 00:22
Granted I never got the whole 'flow' thing down, I just turned it off in SwiftKey settings. EVERYONE who sees me typing always second glances and then goes, "Whoa, how'd you get a black keyboard?!!" My favorite feature is the constantly updating 'Tap Map' I only have one hand so I text with my right thumb only, and sometimes I miss the letter I was going for, SwiftKey actually adjusts those letters to better suit where you tap. You never notice it on your keys of course, it's all behind the scenes, BUT IT HELPS ME IMMENSELY!!! My personal tap map is actually kind of awesome. Also it learns how you use your vocabulary, and how you personally text, so you'll never get those random word predictions that are totally wrong. After using it for more than a year, it'll know the next word I plan to type as soon as I type the first letter almost 100% of the time. SwiftKey truly helps me! Thanks to them I type much faster, more accurately, and overall I like everything their app does. There are sooo many different keyboard themes too, I highly doubt you won't find one you absolutely love... Hopefully this review helps someone who's interested in customizing their iPhone keyboard. I love it!
It could of been great.
by MisutaaUrufu on 2017/10/15 19:44
Yet it isn’t. There are two things about SwiftKey that turn a promising keyboard awful. The first is what I’ll call “multi-word gesture correction”. This isn’t part of the autocorrect function but rather a part of the gesture typing. So when i swipe a word, which it gets correct and adds a space appropriately, and then i swipe another word, it assumes that either the second word will fall in line with predictive suggestions for the first, or that I for some silly reason was swiping the word with two gestures, resulting in entirely correct words being changed to absolutely different words not even near what i wanted. It’s at it’s worst with “a” however. It seems to think I want to type out an a word rather than the one-lettered word itself. So a becomes “Alan”, or “assist”, or “Africa”, or “archaeologists”. It’s asinine! The second is the lack of custom themes. Im aesthetically picky, and i much prefer the “blurred wallpaper” look i had going with other keyboards. Not these cheap gradients (as nice as they are); it doesn't fit in. In all it’s a good concept gone wrong. It’s single word gesture prediction is pretty good, and i could even live without themes, but if it’s going to consistently rewrite my entire sentences because it thinks the word i swiped doesn’t fit with the other words, (and therefore i must of “swiped wrong”), then it’s absolutely garbage as a keyboard. Sayonara, SwiftKey. I hardly knew you.
Aggravating, barely better than the rest
by tr1999 on 2018/08/03 19:08
I've tried a bunch: Gboard has the best swipe dictionary but is unstable and prone to swipe "breaks". Swype was just unstable to the point of unusable. SwiftKey seems most stable but has fewer features than Gboard and the swipe dictionary is HORRIBLE. For example I cannot swipe "we" or "as" consistently because the w and e (or a and s) are too close. Half the time I get just e and often I get "rwe" whatever the heck that is. I've removed "rwe" multiple times from my dictionary but still it keeps popping up. The swipe dictionary is terrible, try swiping "how've" and I get "Hoeven" or "Glebe". Long press on the period key in a URL bar and you won't get the website extensions (.com, .edu, ...) that you get with the Apple keyboard or Gboard. Long press on the same key when typing a message and you only get a very limited (6) punctuation marks while Gboard gives you the whole punctuation menu. In short barely above a very bad lot of swipe keyboards
An amazing app, my #1 daily user.
by John Alden on 2018/11/29 04:52
SwiftKey is hands down the best of the keyboard apps I've used. There are things I still use other keyboards for, so it's not a universal solution, but the ease of use, the EXCELLENT swipe typing capabilities, and about the best predictive text I've encountered make it indispensable as an everyday tool. This one also gives cool statistical info on your typing and keyboard usage, including a "heat map" (recently renamed the "tap map") shows where your fingers THINK letters are, the total improvement to productivity, number of words typed, corrected, replaced, and a total distance your finger traveled across your phone screen while swiping (mine if over 2100 METERS!), etc. All in all, this is a must have for anyone that doesn't use voice dictation.
Love it
by Camryn Valencia on 2019/02/19 14:41
I love this app. In the Christmas of the year 2017 I received my iPhone and I was looking at the apps that my Nana and mom had. They both had these adorable keyboards and I asked how they got those and they told me it was this app. So I looked at the app and read some reviews and decided to dialogs the app. So I went in the app and was trying to figure out how to change my keyboard to make it a picture on my phone...and it turned out that I got the newer version of the app that my family had. And I didn't really care cause at least I can change my keyboard to something different from the standard iPhone keyboard. I kept up with the updates and this winter I updated the app and am now adding my own new keyboards. Love the app!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️😁👍🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Terrible
by gjbffyjktdcbjjjydx on 2018/12/20 15:50
I’m using talk to text to write this because the keyboard is so terrible. The word prediction is so bad I don’t even know What some of the words are or how it comes up with abbreviations for words Nor with these words ever make sense in a sentence. I like how the app gives you stats on how many words it’s predicted and change for you yeah it changes all the words most the time words that I have typed out right and then it goes back and changes and I have to redo them again. So I guess I’m going to go back to using the regular keyboard although I will miss my swipe texting terribly but at this point I’m using talk to text more than ever anyway so at least when I type words out it won’t go back and change them hopefully. oh and when I try to post this bad review I asked for a nickname and I’ve tried about 100 of them so far and it won’t let me use any so I’m guessing they probably block out the bad reviews by the system I’ll keep trying hopefully find one.
Great when it works
by Sodiumnitrate on 2017/11/06 01:12
First with the positives: I can use two languages at the same time. This is very important for me because English is not my native language but I live in the US. I also like the design and the ease of swiping and such. But it rarely loads within tens of seconds. I open up a messaging app, be it iMessage or WhatsApp, there’s no keyboard. I click on the text box to make it appear, and wait. It appears in a few seconds but the keys aren’t responsive. Then it crashes. I get the default iOS keyboard. I select SwiftKey from the list again. It appears and disappears. I have to do this several times until I can use it. It’s insanely frustrating. I’ve been using a swipe keyboard since my Nokia windows phone, and I’m so used to it that it’s painful to type on the regular iOS keyboard. And there doesn’t seem to be an alternative to SwiftKey that doesn’t have more problems. Please please can you fix this issue?
Built-in Clipboard a Winner!
by DaveKubi on 2019/05/01 19:56
I've used several keyboards and several separate Clipboard managers. I'm glad I found "SwiftKey" which an incorporates an easily accessible clipboard into the keyboard and which holds up to 10 clippings. I've been looking for this feature for a long time. It makes message composition so much easier! My hope is that the authors at least double the clippings the clipboard holds. Thanks! 7.9.18 Brilliant idea for the designer(s) of this app: Add a button to the keyboard which will stamp a (customizable) date and time to the text being. written. I would use this often in my daily logging of events. Thanks! 😎 5.1.19. Adding a number row almost has me back from "Slyder" keyboard. If you add a date and time stamp button I willbe back. Thanks. 😎
I love this app
by Anonymous #1212 on 2020/07/08 19:17
I love this keyboard because it has so many functions and there is something very good and that is that when you only need to write numbers (for example, a phone number), the normal keyboard just sends you to the keyboard mode where there are numbers but also some punctuation marks but this keyboard sends you to a numeric keyboard and this could help to the people that are accustomed to using a numeric keyboard. Also, I have a lot of keyboards but I think this is my favorite keyboard. Also, I will not always use this keyboard because the other keyboards I have, have some things that this keyboard doesn't have like for example, I have 2 keyboards of fonts but this keyboard doesn't have fonts.
Much better than gboard again
by Anonymous veriewer on 2020/09/06 14:17
I miss the way gboard allowed you to erase the whole word when a bad swype led to the wrong prediction. But gboard has become useless lately in recent versions so I'm back. only 2 glitches seen in swiftkey settings. They are that the clipboard setting is at first inaccessible (you can scroll up to see it but can't click it bc the scroll resets back where it isn't on the screen [the fix is to hit the plus symbol in the top left of the keyboard and then the clipboard looking icon to shortcut to settings that way, then the feature isn't off the screen anymore]). Also the search bar doesn't work in the languages section (no keyboard pops up to type into [the clipboard fix seems to fix that too, maybe it just was not done installing]).
One Finger
by Rev Ky 85 on 2019/03/20 21:37
I am a one finger Typer swiftKey has helped me tremendously with predictive words and also with my spelling. Love the different type of keyboards even the custom ones you can make I have chosen the nickel rose colored keyboard because of the very dark background I can see the keys better. The only thing that I wish is that they would make the keyboard where you can use a animoji. you can use emoji’s but not animoji's. All in all I am very happy with this keyboard there is so much more that can be said about it. I would recommend this to anyone. If you’re like me and like change on certain things you love this app literally has limitless Changes that you can make from their keyboard teams to custom themes that you can make. Very awesome app.
Very good!
by GC 101 on 2020/05/04 00:05
It is outstanding! I love swoops typing more than ever now. Plus, you get a bunch of cool themes and keyboards. There are also some other cool tools that are not orginally equipped on the standard keyboard that comes default on iOS. I swipe typed this review actually! XD LOL HAHAHAHA It has saved me many taps and I think overall and general made me miss productive. Plus, you have multitudinous customization and versatility on the keyboard. There are accent colors and themes you can tweak. You can even make a theme for your keyboard as a photo you took already! Sweet! Awesome! Plus, it has awesome accuracy even typing on a tiny keyboard of an iPhone 5S, thus, my iPhone 6S broke and using this as backup currently. Anyways, I recommend getting this. Plus, it's free! :) ;)
Spyware.
by JackieBlueluck on 2020/07/19 02:00
This is spyware. Think about it. What greedy corporation wouldn't be salivating over getting their meathooks into one's writing of emails, text messages, shopping searches, search engine queries, etc. First of all, whenever I'm browsing anywhere (including my phone's own interface), pages are often slow, jerky, and "float" in different directions while swiping (this is telltale). Secondly, the biggest clue that it's spyware (and my biggest peeve), despite corporations being granted a 6 month extension to become compliant with the California Privacy Act, Microsoft lags behind and there is still no option to opt-out of the collection and selling of my data. Thirdly, when I switch back to my ios keyboard occasionally, SwiftKey fiendishly muscles its way back in. Finally, it stores passwords - which, unless this data is fully encrypted - is unacceptable. Apple is complicit.

Needs curved wordflow layout
by MindNSoul7 on 2021/05/04 11:20
Wordflows curved layout was the best thing ever and Microsoft closed that project for this. So until you ad the curved layout you’ll always get a 1-star.
Go back to previous version
by Narsikus on 2021/05/04 01:00
Past several months it’s gotten worse and worse. I’m going back to stock. I used to could swipe around and it would put exactly what I wanted. Now it literally puts gibberish that isn’t real words. I guess when MS bought it, it went downhill
No Option to Automatically Add Space after Punctuation!!!
by Xpistou on 2021/05/03 16:09
I'll give it 5 stars when they add an option to automatically add a space after punctuation. And as I type this, it's automatically capitalizing words that I used in the title of this review when they don't need to be. That's pretty lame.
Full access for swiping to work?
by Debi DD on 2021/05/03 12:35
I had the Swype keyboard before the last iPhone update. I loved that keyboard. SwiftKey does not swipe. Is that because I have “Full Access” turned off? At least Google’s swiping keyboard works without having full access on, but it’s no comparison to Swype. Why did the update delete an app? I got Swype from the App Store, but it's no longer listed. 🤨 The Swiftkey keyboard is a way behind Swype.
Need New Emojis
by sushishane on 2021/05/03 11:58
SwiftKey needs to update their app so we can use the new emojis in iOS 14.5. Until then, I’ll be using the stock keyboard
Increases speed and accuracy
by janpz on 2021/05/03 03:58
The keyboard learns from your style and habits and after a time, can not only predict how to finish a word, but which words likely follow. For instance, in my case, of I type Monty, SwiftKey offers up Python and the Holy Grail, one word at a time. All I need to do is click on each word. If you've made a typo, and the typo becomes part of the predictive dictionary, you can hard press the word and a pop-up asks if you wish to remove it from the dictionary.
Update

by limberjoelx on 2021/05/02 11:08
I know you guys don't even see the reviews but there's a big that the keyboard change it automatically to the stock iphone one in the middle of the conversation and that's so annoying. I am on iPhone 8 plus (64gb). But if it wasn't that they keyboard is just good

Worst "predictive" typing engine possible
by Amaris333 on 2021/04/30 02:23
Cannot accurately predict my current word, let alone my next word. I end up spending more time correcting this keyboard than I do swiping. Going back to iPhone's keyboard. Okada (I swiped "please"). Please, please someone recreate Swype.

Need to stay on top of Apple software updates
by Hdhhdyhd on 2021/04/28 16:46
I’ve used this app for literally YEARS. To the point where I even forgot it wasn’t my “stock” keyboard. Enter iOS 14.5. With the new update, comes new emojis. I could see them when other people used them but I couldn’t find them. My phone was up to date with the newest software and I couldn’t figure out why I didn’t have these emojis. Come to find out it was actually this app that didn’t have them because it hasn’t been updated to include the new emojis. You would think with a software update as mainstream and talked about as this one, these people would make a point to stay on top of their own updates. I have now deleted this app for the first time in at least 8 years and will now have to get used to the standard Apple keyboard 🙄🤷🏻‍♂️
Uhhh
by Shawshank999999 on 2021/04/27 22:47
I've been using SwiftKey for like a decade... It was flawless. Idk whats happening lately but my autocorrect is horrible. Was there an update that messed with it? I had to turn the keyboard off it was so bad
Great keyboard ported from Android
by Chris 2667 on 2021/04/27 21:00
Great keyboard that came over from Android but I miss a few of the customization options that the Android version has, I'm assuming this is Apples way of controlling things so I can't say it's SwiftKey. Two bugs I have noticed, one is the keyboard keeps defaulting back to the Apple keyboard in iOS 14.5 and when playing music from Tidal and I use voice dictation on SwiftKey, the music keeps playing in the background, I assume you want to pause playback during voice dictation....
Lowercase characters needs to be bigger
by popeye1982in on 2021/04/27 05:09
Lowercase characters needs to be a bit bigger and bold(not a big deal). Otherwise it's a perfect app. I am not sure if there is an option in the settings to increase the font size. Could not find any though. Uppercase letters are good.
Awful

Better on android
by kay@mathews on 2021/04/26 03:55
Adding to my review. Why isn't there a Christian cross emoji? No Christians at Swiftkey? I'm reading all these recent reviews and seems I'm not the only 1 that thinks it's gottennworse@! Swiftkey no response? Even worse than last time I updated. My husband is having the same problem. Constantly hitting wrong keys and it's not autocorrecting. Update. Is it the app or have my fingers gotten fatter?! I.constantly tap wrong letter. Switched from android to ios due to signal issues. This app is terrible on iOS. On Android you could long press key for punctuation and it never kept switching back and forth. You could resize the screen also. Why can't this app be the same? I'd change but can't find another like the android version. For iOS to supposedly be better, this isn't the only app that's not the same. Come on iPhone!
Keyboard keeps changing from SwiftKey
by dhemzziey on 2021/04/25 22:22
I’ve been using SwiftKey for years I can’t even remember. Whenever i buy a new phone, I always download it first..... I just got an iPhone 2 months ago but SwiftKey keeps acting up on it.. my keyboard keeps changing from SwiftKey to other keyboard. What’s happening....: its so annoying

Best keyboard app🖤
by Daanslam on 2021/04/24 22:52

by Ckbladesmith15 on 2021/04/24 13:48
This app was great before Microsoft took over. It's now highly inaccurate and I'm finding that I have to go back and correct it constantly. Just use the one that comes with your phone.
Best Multilingual Keyboard
by keptore on 2021/04/24 02:03
I've been an avid user of SwiftKey for a long time on IOS due to haptic feedback and the amazing swipe-type experience that it provides, but as of the last update, where support for Hawaiian was added, it changed the game for me. SwiftKey singlehandedly became the only keyboard on IOS that supports multilingual typing and swipe type for Hawaiian, and they won my heart. Thank you to all the developers for doing this, and for adding so many supported languages. True bliss. Mahalo!

Poor execution.
by w0lff_ on 2021/04/17 00:11
Emoji and microphone buttons are too close resulting in constant closing of the microphone setup screen. The app is also biased against apple as it does not offer the same amount of languages as it does for Android.
Recent bugs
by Nakaruxx on 2021/04/16 23:34
I’ve been using this app for almost two years now and I’ve loved it. However today I noticed the keyboard kept crashing and switching to my iPhone keyboard, then come back and crash again. it’s been making it very difficult to type. Also the function to remove guessed words doesn’t work; I am perpetually stuck with this keyboard forever correcting me typing “morning” into “ohayou” because I was a weaboo many years ago. No matter how many times I tell the app to remove this word, it stays there, and I text my supervisor “ this ohayou I will be late” more than once already. it’s pretty embarrassing... please fix, it will be five star rating otherwise. I love the custom options and it does a good job learning my speech. :)
Button press Latency
by A͙D͙ K͙I͙L͙L͙E͙R͙ on 2021/04/16 23:07
This app receives a one star from me because every time you type on this keyboard the button presses are delayed by enough to notice. Don’t recommend. I have an iPhone 12 so no my phone is not outdated
Add this features please:
by Yemen Aden on 2021/04/16 13:03
The haptics feedback doesn’t work with words predictive Make this feature in the keyboard you can translate languages and past any text in the keyboard and translated like google Gboard If I want to search about any emojis plz make this feature also works without needs to internet Add new themes especially on iPhone X make themes using the full place on the bottom like this theme ( Nickel X ) but we need themes colorful like this theme (Shooting Stars ) and I hope if you can make option to make this theme or any theme be in full using the free bottom on iPhone X At the end thank you so much for making this keyboard much love
Latest update broke my keyboard
by Spartan526 on 2021/04/16 02:57
SwiftKey was working fine for a while but after the latest update, the keyboard kept moving up and down, as if it was restarting. It usually only does this when I switch to SwiftKey from another keyboard, but for example, in discord, after sending a message it does this every time after 2 seconds and it gets so annoying because I type very fast and then the keyboard suddenly moves, disrupting my typing and slowing me down, as well as making me type the wrong letters and I have to retype. Please fix or let me know of a fix as SwiftKey is not usable like this.

MICROSOFT, SWIFTKEY** REVIEW
by KATHLEENA THERESE, JOHNSON**** on 2021/04/10 17:56
THE TECHNOLOGICAL MICROSOFT SWIFTKEY KEYBOARD HAS A TRANSCENDENTAL ELEMENT THAT ENGAGES THE MICROSOFT TECHNOLOGY SOFTWARE INTO AN SHEER ENJOYMENT OF USE &AND EFFICIENCY IN COMPUTERIZE KEYBOARD DATA INPUT. KUDOS**, TO MICROSOFT Corporation, TECHNOLOGY INNOVATION CREATED BY YOUR COMPANY ENTERPRISE, YET AGAIN.
Degrading with development.
by Richpost on 2021/04/10 17:32
I have used SwiftKey from the beginning. I have noticed that the keyboard has gotten less efficient overtime to now I am actually looking for something different. I used to be able to depend on SwiftKey to predict and correct misspelled words correctly. Not anymore, I now find myself going back and correcting SwiftKey mistakes, words in wrong tense or even a word that doesn't even fit into the context. looking for a smarter keyboard, SwiftKey is drunk.
App errors.
by KayBest1 on 2021/04/10 12:28
Does not have the predicted words that is typed. It often changes the correctly typed word to something else, at least three (3) times then the forced key has to be clicked to keep the word that was initially typed. It changes people’s names after you type the correct letters in all the right spaces THEN, it tells how many errors the typist made.
Meh. Add resize to large keys and you get my business
by jscgrey on 2021/04/10 12:26
What makes SwiftKey any different or any better than another choice??? What I really need to decide to use Swift Key over Google or Apple’s native keyboard is larger keys. I wear readers, constantly on and off my face. Life with readers is a daily battle to see, take off the glasses to see beyond arms distance, then back again to glasses on. How about giving us larger bold keys that those of us that wear glasses would benefit from having on a daily basis. You would make yourself different than the other options and I would have a solid reason to use your keyboard. Cheers

Review for SwiftKey
by BratA Tact on 2021/04/05 02:13
I love SwiftKey. It's almost like having someone typing for you. It's a blessing to me right now because my hands and fingers are getting so bad I can barely type anymore myself. I THANK GOD FOR SWIFTKEY I have so many miss spelled words.
More theme choice!
by LryMdl on 2021/04/04 14:33
Wish there were more theme choices for Apple. Pretty sure when I had Android there were more choices...

Missing punctuation and symbols
by Bribentyl on 2021/04/02 08:18
I switched from Android and I'm very disappointed that you do not allow ios users the option to add the symbols and punctuation for quickly adding to my typing. Instead I'm forced to click the 123 button and search blindly for cumin symbols stock as @ " # ' /. Not cool.
Swipe or SwiftKey flow does not work
by Jeffsbaker on 2021/04/01 18:54
I like that the keys are slightly bigger than the regular keyboard. But I have SwiftKey flow checked for gliding from key to key and it does not work! Also the backspace key is kind of slow when holding it down. RESPONSE TO DEVELOPERS: I don’t think a screen recording will show anything useful. I have “Microsoft SwiftKey Flow” checked in settings but when I slide my fingers over the letters all that prints is the last letter my finger touches. Does no one else have this problem?
Bummed
by Roxadee on 2021/04/01 06:09

I’ve been using swift key since high school. I left for ios default keyboard some years ago but always kept this downloaded. Can’t remember why I left because I loved SwiftKey. It introduced me to swype texting and I no longer do that. The customization was great back then and it looks even better now. I rarely ever write reviews. I rarely even star either so the fact I took the time for this says a lot. Good job y’all
This is way better on Android.
by McChorizo on 2021/03/30 11:35
I've been using the SwiftKey keyboard for a some time now and I recently switched over to Apple and boy does this app provide lackluster results on iOS. Text prediction is bad it's almost as if it doesn't learn from my typing. There is zero emoji prediction. It's also worth pointing out that this keyboard has no secondary function for keys so you can't hold any of them to get a special character. There is also an absolute absence of keyboard customization it's just a reskinned iOS keyboard and completely fails in comparison to it's Android counterpart.

limited options compared to Android

why isn't there as many features as there is on the Android version? like secondary keys where you hold down the letter & a secondary key registers for * & % $ ;:()? or more theme options? or ability to resize the keyboard? I am uninstalling due to the disappointing lack of features compared to the Google play version.
Better than apple, worse than Samsung
by BossTrooper18 on 2021/03/25 17:14
I wanted to try using an iPhone for a bit to see if I liked it and because my dad had just upgraded I got his old phone, usually I use the galaxy note 8 and the 2 things I wish I had here that I have on the note are being able to hold on characters for a secondary function, for example my most used on is the question mark which is a long press on the m key, the other thing is having the comma next to the period instead of in a long press menu with the period, although having the mini drawer is still much better and faster than the standard iPhone keyboard method where you have to go to secondary characters

Love This Keyboard -Give IOS Users Full Function
by gkpilgrim on 2021/03/20 12:59
SwiftKey keyboard is the best keyboard available by far. I have used it for years on Android phones. Text prediction is so accurate and helpful. I recently switched to the IPhone and was so disappointed to see that I cannot have the keyboard I have loved so much. I hope Microsoft will enable resizing, larger keys, and the two function lettering that makes this Keyboard the best.
No Vietnamese!!

Go back to combing typing & swiping for the same word.
by Anchorman428 on 2018/09/01 18:22
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.
Still The Best, But "Flow" Accuracy Has Deteriorated
by Aerincal on 2020/08/30 17:59
First, let me note that this is NOT a negative review. I still recommend the app, but I do see an issue happening that I think should be recognized. I have been using SwiftKey for years, since long before Microsoft bought them out. It is/was a fantastic keyboard that you could actually see improve as it learned your patterns. Lately, however, (maybe the past 6-8 months?) the accuracy of my flow typing has deteriorated to the point I'm spending more time fixing its errors than typing my messages. I actually tried switching back to the stock IOS keyboard for a bit, though I ended up coming back to SwiftKey. I'd forgotten how IOS polices and censors "bad" language and that doesn't sit well with me, and their emoji and punctuation access is awkward as heck. SwiftKey still soundly trounces them in those areas. I really hope that this issue sorts itself out, because aside from that, the keyboard is the best out there, hands down. The customizations, the way they've set up how you access emojis and punctuation, and other options are top-notch and no other keyboard I'm aware of comes close. For the time being, I've somewhat mitigated my issue by greatly slowing down my flow typing, which is ok but defeats the purpose of faster typing using flow.
Not pleased
by enter my review on 2018/04/20 19:31
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 this app buuuutttttt........
by Cathey98 on 2017/11/18 01:40
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.
Bummer keyboard
by sizzlin'soap on 2018/10/31 14:13
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 (:
Sometimes works correctly
by sdewey99 on 2018/10/20 19:43
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.
Love!!!
by AmandaLG86 on 2019/10/20 08:06
I don't know what I'd do without this app!!! Actually Yea I do!!! I'd be spending a hell of a lot more time typing!!! Thank you SwiftKey!! The only disadvantage is not having the option to go into SwiftKey settings to view/edit the "dictionary" that is automatically created specifically as I use the App! I'll keep checking back after any updates the app has just in case this feature is added!! Or if there is an option to do so but I've somehow over looked it, please let me know!! There's quite a few words I've misspelled while rushing that saved in my "dictionary" of words, some aren't even words!! Very frustrating having one of those pop up several times while I'm typing! Even worse when I correctly spell words but SwiftKey will change/substitute it to my accidental jibberish 😳😐!! Now these nonsense words are piling up and popping up way too often!!! Very frustrating! I still feel it's a five star app just give us the option to edit our dictionary!! Thanks SwiftKey!!!
Good as they get!
by Stihlmanthrunthru on 2019/12/08 01:12
Been using this app for year's now and would not send a message without it for the simple fact of the time alone it saves you compared to other apps or even apples that comes with your phone can not compare and can not stand when my phone will change over to one of the others that is in my phone like I am not going to notice that it is not SwiftKey. This app bar none hands down is the best free app out there for messaging, if you are looking for a messaging app don't waste your time looking any further and download this one now I promise you will not regret it. It also has themes I almost forgot to mention so you can customize your keyboard to your liking which is neat specially during holidays they have themes for each holiday and all free and who doesn't like free. Hope this helps someone who is considering this free app download with their decision!
Needs improvement although best for me
by CasperUllal on 2018/02/08 11:02
I tried Word Flow and Gboard keyboards before I settled on this keyboard. Word Flow is deprecated so there is no point discussing it. Gboard has a couple of features that are nicer than this keyboard - example, searching emojis. However, the predictive capabilities of this keyboard are much better than Gboard or any other keyboard including Apple's built-in keyboard. This is why I keep using it. The negatives of this keyboard for me are: 1) Inability to search for emojis. 2) The predictive text bar doesn't show up in some situations but I can't tell what the reason is. 3) The emojis move around - especially the first part and if you try to send multiple emojis of the same type you may end up sending some other emojis if you keep tapping in the same spot. It doesn't make sense for the frequently used emojis to move while you are using them. 4) The period key doesn't have a single quote option. I find this annoying as I use it all the time. It would be nice to be able to customize what punctuation options are available on the period.
Its a shame Microsoft abandoned Word Flow
by Raikon87 on 2017/09/26 00:07
The swipe prediction of SwiftKey pales in comparison to Word Flow. Word flow would let you swipe fast and would recognize every word...with SwiftKey it doesn't recognize words if you swipe fast, so you have to spend time swiping slow or spend a lot of time correcting. SwiftKey's only saving grace is being able to swipe complete a word from mid word to correct it. however that doesn't make up for its faults. Also they need to add an apostrophe to the first page punctuation button. It's a shame Microsoft abandoned word flow for this. Also if this program want backed by Microsoft I wouldn't be using it.... It REQUIRES FULL ACCESS which I'm hesitant to give even though it's backed by Microsoft. Who knows what data could be getting mined from what you type, that Microsoft isn't aware of. Either way, with all that said, it's the best option on the market since Microsoft took down word flow, so I use it.... But it's far from perfect. Maybe one day Microsoft will start up word flow again or integrate it into SwiftKey... One can only hope.
Fantastic app
by Ahi kdnzidbdiane on 2019/04/11 17:56
Great, smooth, and very well designed, user friendly keyboard. My only problem is autocorrect, autocorrect is great with English but is awful with Arabic. It's always changing things that I typed correctly to weird unintelligible words that aren't even close to what I wanted to say so what I send ends up being gibberish. To be fair, fixing autocorrect for Arabic would be too much to ask because the lexicon is diverse and very regional; all I'm asking for is the ability to turn off autocorrect for a certain language by itslef. I can't give up the English autocorrect but I also can't live with the Arabic one... I hope that option is not too difficult for the developers to add. I feel bad for giving the app 3 stars but having to manually re-correct two to three words of every sentence I type is quite annoying and I feel like 3 stars is the best way to get through the developers. Will update my review as soon as the option to turn off autocorrect for certain languages is added, I check for updates of this app very frequently
Not perfect, but I'll never go back to the stock keyboard.
by Skler5467 on 2018/11/19 22:41
I've been using SwiftKey for about 3 years and have seen its ups and downs. It started out with occasional glitches that would cause the keyboard to close and swap back to the stock keyboard until I reopened whatever app I was using, but even then, the functionality was worth the minor inconvenience. Nowadays, it's 99% stable and its predictive engine knows me so well that I never want to go back to the stock keyboard. The designs look great (I've been using Shooting Stars for years now), the swipe typing is super efficient, and its subtle modification of my typing map makes my accuracy spot on whether I'm typing with one or two hands. The only remaining glitch is that sometimes, the text doesn't continue to scroll down, so I have to manually scroll down or at worst, switch keyboards and back, but the amount of time saved by its features makes it well worth it. Try it out for a week or two and you'll fall in love with it.
Hate it more than I Love It

The swipe feature was the main reason I downloaded SwiftKey. And I love that feature. I'm not into the whole customization aspect so I just picked a keyboard that looked most like apple's stock keyboard. The sizing and spacing was different so it took a little bit of getting used to. I tapped a lot of wrong keys in the beginning. The word prediction and auto-correct is TERRIBLE. It is so frustrating to use. I'll type a very normal word that I have typed MANY times correctly and it will change it to some random word. It slows me down a lot. You'd think that the advertised feature that the app "learns your typing style to know what words you choose and use frequently" would actually work...but it doesn't....not even in the slightest. I feel like I am too committed to switch back to Apple's keyboard or a different 3rd party...but overall, I hate this keyboard app way more than I love it. It slows me down a ton while trying to the something simple. Even the swipe feature will never give me the words I want. So yeah, I'm not a big fan unfortunately.
Frustrated
by Tahl000 on 2018/11/04 19:02
I like the look of this swype app and I like that it allows to have multiple languages with ease of transition directly on the same screen but it has quite a few flaws. If you want to swipe two letter word and the letters are close to each other, it won't swype. It's ability to predict your words is inconsistent. Short cuts to punctuation marks are practically none existent (unless I don't know them) I hate switching to the number keypad every time I want to use a symbol. The shortcuts they do have (to the right are a pain to use. With the previous app I used, each letter could be pressed for a second longer and it would instead display a corresponding symbol. For example hold g and you'd get a parentheses. Hold j and your get a colon, etc. Also the app would recognize when you'd swype names from your contacts and it allowed you to save words you want to app to recognize. I also don't know how to switch to the regular Apple keyboard from this apps keyboard. I love swyping but this app sometimes makes it frustrating to swype.
Used to be great, now not so much. Great if you want more typos
by LGB987 on 2020/01/22 03:24
I’ve had Swift key for a while. I used the love it! The swiping, the customization, the autocorrect, everything. However, recently something changed, and SwiftKey has been causing me more typos than when I use my apple keyboard. For whatever reason it stopped autocorrecting a lot of the time, BUT autocorrecting me when I don’t want it to. It’s really annoying At first I thought it was a combination of my horrendous spelling and mediocre typing skills. But recently my Apple keyboard switched on, and I noticed how much faster and correctly I was typing. It was like shedding the skin that is swiftkey. I realized that it was swiftkey and not me (okay maybe a little me, but the apple keyboard is able to keep up better with and for me). One feature that I do like is the emoji searching (something apple doesn’t have) . They could improve the results though. After getting really annoyed I finally deleted Swiftkey, I’ll see if I end up downloading it again idk
Great app, 2 major problems.
by Sjsksksks on 2018/04/01 04:29
I love this app and all of the features it has, especially the slide-to-text feature. It works very well and I use it a lot. Although, there are a couple of things that really, really annoy me about this app. 1. When you misspell something, it doesn't underline the word in red telling you it's misspelled. The auto-correct function does not do as well as the standard, Apple keyboard does, even when texting normal opposed to the sliding feature. 2. You cannot use Siri to type for you with this keyboard. On the standard apple keyboard, there is a microphone icon in the bottom right corner of the keyboard where you can speak and it will type for you, SwiftKey does not offer this feature unfortunately, which is very annoying to me and seems like a main feature they would have. Overall, this application is great and I use it daily. I urge SwiftKey to fix these few issues and I think it would put them on the top!
Great keyboard
by Gene Yus on 2020/10/18 15:42
I love your keyboard. Can you; 1) introduce a theme that resembles the keyboard you use on your computer with the numbers in a 10-key format' 2) introduce the ability to customize the keys to type a word or symbol using the 'touch and hold' action like the [?!.] key does. Ex, many folks use certain words or punctuation often. If I could program, say the 'W' key using the 'touch and hold' action one could program that key to type say 'set to default'. This way one touch (and hold) would save 13 keystrokes! I love the little down arrow in the lower right corner to dismiss the keyboard. I love the ability to move the cursor using the space bar. Using this action, the space bar isn't so sensitive that it moves the cursor inadvertently causing grammar errors. I'm giving you 5 stars and would be very excited if these features were added. Thanks.
Not helpful anymore
by I Ms Snow I on 2018/07/08 15:29
So, I initially installed this app because the regular iPhone keyboard was terrible at predicting my Spanglish and because of the beautiful choices of aesthetics it provided. I’m bilingual and I’m constantly switching between the two. Swiftkey was excellent at first doing this, but as time passed not only did the bilingual perk went away, it doesn’t even predict correctly for just one language. It constantly suggests words that I do not use and it doesn’t improve because it does not add the words I’m using. Also, I reserve my right to cuss and for some God forsaken reason it won’t let me do that either it just switches it with another similar completely unrelated word. I decided to give the standard iPhone keyboard a try and it just turns out it is either pretty much the same, similar or better than Swiftkey was at first. Nevertheless, I don’t need the ongoing struggle Swiftkey was giving me so I deleted the app and stayed with the original. Hence, this review because I’m open to coming back if the developers fix all of the issues I’ve been and everyone’s been complaining about.
Best keyboard ever but..
by OmerWow on 2017/12/29 20:27
This is seriously the best keyboard I've ever used. I tried them all: Gboard, Fleksy, Grammerly, Minumm, Apple's own keyboard and more, but I always come back to this one because it's just works so good in pretty much every category. I have a small request though: if you can, please do something with the wasted space on the iPhone X, either eliminate it or do something useful with it (in the app settings there's no wasted space for example and that's nice). Also, on 3D touch enabled devices, can you please do that moving the cursor up and down and not only left or right will be an option as well? I know that when you reach the end of the row it automatically does that, but it's not the most comfortable thing... Another complaint I have is that the keyboard doesn't insert a space after things like a .,?! and that's pretty annoying. Last complaint is that there's no long pressing a letter for options like ":()*% etc.
SwiftKey is a slow learner
by expressgoner0101 on 2019/10/01 15:31
I had Word Flow on my old phone and when that died, I had to find another swipe keyboard because apparently Word Flow isn't supported any longer (you could still use it if you'd already downloaded it though). I've been using SwiftKey for a few weeks now and it's so frustrating! You would think after that amount of time it would have 'learned' by now that I'm trying to type 'and,' not 'abs' or 'Ave,' or 'neighbor' instead of 'Bridgette' or 'beige.' Its predictive text capability is absolute garbage. A lot of the time it comes up with completely nonsensical words that I've never used and certainly aren't commonly used in wider social circles than mine. I tried to give it some time to see if it would 'remember' which words and phrases I use the most so its predictive text would become more accurate, but that hasn't been the case. I spend more time correcting its mistakes or just typing out individual letters (which obviously isn't the point of a swipe keyboard) than I do getting accurate swipes. I'll be looking for another keyboard and can't wait to stop using this one.
Really.
by Igot1too on 2021/01/02 17:50
So I've used this app for some years. I have since switched to iPhone and all the keyboards I purchased when using samsung are no longer in my account. I can't restore them? This was before all the keyboards were free. I purchased several and I would either like the keyboards or my money. Additionally, the "contact us" within the app is a scam. Everytime I try to submit a question it gives and error message about my connection. I take it they don't want complaints. If you are thinking of getting this app, sure why not, it's all free now. If you purchased keyboards in the past and can't find them or access them in your account consider it money down the drain.. !!!! Update: someone did get back to me about this problem. And basically said that iPhones have limited capabilities on the keyboards which is ridiculous. And no I still couldn't get the ones I purchased on Samsung cause of this limited capabilities. And apparently no one is working to increase the capabilities so we could have more crea4ive keyboards instead of 12 they offer.
Most recent update killed emoji function
by 2258901 on 2020/05/16 21:52
I have been a dedicated SwiftKey user since Apple started allowing third-party keyboards. I am appalled by the most recent update. While I use SwiftKey for text, I use Apple's emoji keyboard. I use Apple's emoji keyboard because it highlights all words in a message in orange and allows the user to convert the words into relevant emojis. This feature was compatible with SwiftKey's keyboard until the most recent SwiftKey app update. After the most recent SwiftKey update, Apple's emoji keyboard does not recognize words typed with SwiftKey and cannot highlight them in orange to allow emoji substitution. This problem was not generated by any change in Apple's software. I have tested the compatability between SwiftKey and Apple's emoji keyboard on multiple iPhones running multiple iOS versions (both current and outdated). My experimentation has conclusively revealed that the most recent SwiftKey update killed compatability between SwiftKey and Apple's emoji keyboard. I will unfortunately be unable to use SwiftKey as my primary keyboard (after years of dedication to SwiftKey) until this issue is remedied.
A giant step down
by LethalMartini on 2018/07/10 00:38
I give this three stars instead of just one because it is technically the best option at the moment. Previously, that would have been the now deprecated Word Flow (which I'm still using and writing this review on), which was a great keyboard that Microsoft chose to abandon (after putting in a ton of work on it I assume) in favor of buying and marketing an inferior existing product. Word Flow brought me reluctantly back to swipe-style keyboards because of its unmatched accuracy. I can practically randomly wiggle my finger around on the keyboard and it somehow knows what I'm trying to say. Swift key requires more time executing precise swipes and making corrections that it takes to just type in the standard Apple keyboard. Yes, Swift Key a little more stable and maybe has a few features that people prefer but please, Microsoft, you own the algorithm from Word Flow that can make this keyboard great... Integrate that tech into Swift Key or give/sell it to a developer who will.
Best alternative
by l11arcangel on 2019/05/07 00:40
This is the best alternative to the default iOS keyboard in my opinion. I picked this keyboard particularly for swipe functionality, GBoard being the other option. I find this one a lot more pleasing due to its simplicity. The default theme is clean and minimal, and I don't mind the SwiftKey logo being on the spacebar (although a premium option to remove it would be ideal). I do have one suggestion for the keyboard, an option to remove the globe/emoji button altogether or being replaced with something more useful and linking the emoji button on the bottom left to SwiftKey's implementation if possible. On my Xs, the default emoji button on the bottom left leaves SwiftKey's emoji button redundant. I can remove the system emoji keyboard but will be left with a huge space. Using SwiftKey with two emoji buttons at the moment. Thanks for the beautiful keyboard!
Please Add Long-Press Characters.
by Joshua D. on 2018/07/29 12:38
When using Swype you could access numbers and characters by long-pressing the on screen letters and it saved time because you didn't have to click the "123" button to access them. Would you please add this feature to the Swift Key keyboard please? So, if I long-press on say the letter "x" it would input an exclamation point "!". To me that saves so much time instead of always having to click the button to access those characters. You could put all the numbers for long-press on the top letters and all the other characters everywhere else. I really hope you'll consider my request please,thank you. It would save so much time and make typing with Swift Key so much faster in my opinion. Thank you again if you'll consider this request and hopefully implement into the keyboard. Or maybe it could be an option to turn on for users like myself who are used to it or find that they like and enjoy how much quicker it really is. Also, when I go down a new line on my iPhone 8 plus, it doesn't pull up the screen, it keeps hiding what I'm tomb topping typing and I have to keep pushing the screen up on my own. Would you please fix the app so that i don't have to do this? It's very annoying that I cannot see what I'm typing until I thumb up the screen on my iPhone. Thank you and thanks for all the work and time put into this nice keyboard.
Two steps forward, two steps back.
by DennySF415 on 2020/08/19 07:16
I've said it before and I'll say it again--1 star until you change the placement of that bloody voice to text button. It's in the worst spot possible!!! Move it to the left of the emoji button. I absolutely HATE where the voice to text mic button is now. I've accidentally hit it a bazillion times when trying to hit the emoji button. Then it opens that other page up which is incredibly frustrating!!! This definitely needs to be fixed! Otherwise, pretty good but words still come out jumbled and I have to constantly go back and delete words and start all over. This is probably the best keyboard for the iPhone although I'm always left scratching my head when some words come out a jumbled mess. Definitely room for improvement. Also frustrating is that it keeps defaulting back to the native Apple keyboard which drives me batty. I often have to tap on it several times to bring it back. Why is it not possible to keep the keyboard static and not bouncing back and forth?!
Needs improvements
by Apple_App Gamer on 2020/10/03 20:18
Microsoft SwiftKey is very usable and it's the keyboard I mostly use. However, there needs some improvements. For example, the default iOS keyboard is easier to use because the letters are larger and there is a dark background which contrasts with the letters, making it a lot easier to see. Another needed improvement is need to include a suggestion box for emojis after typing a word, just like the default iOS keyboard. Microsoft needs to include Microsoft SwiftKey in their own App page under "Microsoft," just like they do with all their Microsoft products. The reason being that because it's not included under Microsoft's App page, Microsoft SwiftKey is not well heard of. And finally, I would like to suggest that it would be very neat for the consumers to have options to choose how they would like to style their Microsoft SwiftKey keyboard.
Used to be much better
by gatoverde225 on 2018/03/09 00:11
I loved this keyboard until a few updates ago when it forgot my writing style and vocabulary. Ever since then, it has actively resisted learning the words I frequently use. It honestly feels like censorship because these are words that adults use and I use them ALL THE TIME. I thought it was supposed to learn from ME . . . It always suggests something else. It's a miracle when it actually DOES remember. Which is only with words that don't have many potential replacements. Today it began to make ridiculously loud click sounds, even near the lowest volume setting on my phone. I had to turn off the key clicks on it because it was too much. I'm on a 6s with the newest OS. I really hope that this keyboard can be made to once again work with me, rather than against me. Some of the suggestions/corrections are just plain awful. Especially for names. They should allow us to add words if they can't fix this.
Learn from Swype.
by icalc on 2019/01/10 00:53
I was sad to let go of Swype because it is no longer maintained. SwiftKey is the best replacement I found, better than gboard in many respects, however I wish it was as good as Swype for glide typing. I suggest the developers learn from using Swype. The most impactful improvement, for me, would be to allow deleting the entire last word using backspace, if done right after the glide stroke. This prevents me from wasting time deleting long words guessed incorrectly by SwiftKey. The next improvement is automatic insertion of a space after a comma or question mark. A more sophisticated improvement is smart insertion, where spacing is automatically adjusted when inserting new text in the middle of a sentence. Finally, I wish I could curate words I teach the keyboard, instead of hoping that some inefficient (insert your favorite strong word here) machine learning algorithm will figure out what I need. Hoping to see these soon in a future update.
Hands down THE VERY BEST "Swpye" app EVER!!
by CRS 55 on 2018/08/09 21:14
So I've used quite a few of the "Swpye" apps before this one but once I downloaded this and now that I've been using it I tell my friends and family all the time,it's like it reads my mind!! Once you've used it for awhile it seriously "gets to know you" like a friend would :) Even beyond that brilliance comes the beautiful personalization options, and for the love of God I FINALLY know how and often use my clipboard!! I tell literally every single person that I engage with on more than a five minute basis about this app! Yous Guys are killing it man! And thank you!! (My only ensy weensy teeny tiny thing that I would love to add is the text to talk ability. If it's already on her,which it probably is then PLEASE SOMEONE TELL ME HOW TO FIND IT! And if not...then just a small suggestion ;)
by far the best non-apple keyboard
by actuallyben on 2019/03/04 01:40
I have owned dozens of keyboard apps since the update allowing different keyboards and this is definitely my favorite. You don't have to pay to get upgrades like other annoying apps which I appreciate a lot. The swipe works so well and you can customize your keyboard in so many ways. You can add a picture to the background and change your auto capitalization and auto correct. I would without a doubt recommend this app to anyone looking for a faster way to text or even just looking for a cuter keyboard. I also appreciate that they have their own built in emoji keyboard. With other keyboard apps, when you switch over to emojis, when you try to go back to your keyboard it would only take you to the Apple keyboard. This one goes back to the swift keyboard.
I LOVE swift key!!!
by punk_262x on 2018/08/09 22:46
Hi my name is Kaitlyn...I have been using swift key for a bout a year now and I couldnt be more happy with it! I love all of the designs on it...like when I am missing my mom I can make my keyboard a picture of her. Not only can you put pictures but there are awesome designs that you can choose to be your keyboard...but my favorite is designing my own and using pictures! You can change the settings for how you want it, they automatically capitalize words or sentences that should be capitalized, and there is even a swipe setting in it! Of course though, if you don't want any of that stuff then you can always change it off in settings. Swift key gets to know how you type and what you are trying to say, even when you don't know what your trying to say😂. I hope you enjoy swift key!
Vastly good, regrettable hindrances
by Selekate on 2018/12/13 13:22
DOESN'T WORK WITH SMART INVERSION: photo themes stay the same color in smart inversion, but keys turn dark—completely illegible. If you use color inversion often, e.g., to reduce glare at night on white documents, you'd need to manually switch keyboards every time. OR REGULAR INVERSION: dark backgrounds are easier on the eyes. Enabling total color inversion makes the text legible on the background, at the cost of being blinding. For the purpose of inverting to reduce white space eye strain, swiftkey is defunct. INABILITY TO CHANGE KEY COLOR: above could be solved by enabling white keys on custom keyboards, which would also benefit users who want to use light photo backgrounds. INABILITY TO RESET TAP MAP: I'd like to reset the tap map after switching dominant hands for swiping and texting. There's no option to do this. That's lackluster. I don't want to uninstall and reinstall swiftkey; first, that's a silly solution for a straightforward problem, second, it would reset various type predictions. It's apparently possible to preserve predictions through making an account, but that's definitely not an obvious solution. New emoji/gif/whatever bar is beautiful and elegant though. Despite above problems, makes swiftkey the best tool around in my books.
How has this issue been missed after 2 updates?
by ThatGuyNotRay on 2020/11/16 20:15
I had used SwiftKey for quite some time before this issue had come up, and before this bug, it was essentially a 5-star (minus the fact that there’s no option to remove the distracting Microsoft watermark from the space bar). Now, 9 times out of 10 when I pull up the keyboard on any app, and I’ve tried quite a few, it flashes the SwiftKey keyboard for half a second or less and then reverts to the generic Apple keyboard. This has been happening for at least a couple of months now, even after some updates to the app. My hopes were dashed after the second update that I saw from the App Store, and it didn’t help a thing. I tried removing the English keyboard from my settings, and this worked for about 30 minutes until I had pulled my keyboard up in a different app. Uninstalled and reinstalled a week ago, and it worked for a single day until this issue came back rearing its ugly head. Deeply disappointed for an appbreaking bug. iOS 14.1, iPhone X.
My Keyboard of Choice, Still Have a Wishlist
by Andomor on 2018/03/16 23:36
I enjoy using this keyboard, and absolutely prefer it over Apple’s stock tapper. And the latest updated added some much needed/appreciated features. However, I do have to knock one star off for some features that are still woefully missing. First: This is Microsoft’s official/supported mobile add-on keyboard, is it not? Since this is the case, I cannot fathom the reason that it does not have the best and defining feature of WordFlow (Microsoft’s previous mobile add-on keyboard before acquiring SwiftKey): the curved, one-handed keyboard. I sincerely hope that this distinctive and awesome feature from WordFlow is being diligently worked on for SwiftKey. Second: 3D Touch functionality in SwiftKey is atrocious compared to Apple’s native keyboard. With Apple’s keyboard, I can use 3D Touch to move the cursor in any direction I please, not just left and right. And with a second push of the 3D Touch, I can highlight without having to lift my thumb (or finger) to touch the body of text. These two features of 3D Touch in Apple’s native keyboard are extremely useful and convenient, and I would very much like to see them make their way to SwiftKey. So if they add WordFlow’s curved keyboard and vertical movement/hightlighting to 3D Touch, then Five Stars (from me) is just an update away!
Frustrating... I miss Swype
by StillwaterCreek on 2019/02/11 00:55
I switched to SwiftKey after Swype was abandoned, but like so many others here I'm growing more and more frustrated with it. It doesn't learn from me and frequently suggests words that are not only incorrect but are strange and unknown. Half the time when I try to type "we" it enters a lone "e". What the heck? "E" by itself is not even a word in English. Who stocked the word library in this thing? And why do I have to delete incorrect words letter by letter? If Swype got it wrong, a single backspace deleted the entire word quickly, and it really did learn from its mistakes. Punctuation is especially frustrating. Swype had awesome shortcuts for exclamation and question marks, and automatically inserted proper spacing. SwiftKey is a mess in this regard. I really do wonder sometimes if this is worth the hassle, any faster than hunt and peck. UPDATE: I just found Gboard by Google. Still not as good as Swype but waaaay better than Swiftkey. Plus surprisingly it doesn't require full access.
Absolutely love it!! Must read review!
by Spazboy426 on 2019/06/03 00:22
Granted I never got the whole 'flow' thing down, I just turned it off in SwiftKey settings. EVERYONE who sees me typing always second glances and then goes, "Whoa, how'd you get a black keyboard?!!" My favorite feature is the constantly updating 'Tap Map' I only have one hand so I text with my right thumb only, and sometimes I miss the letter I was going for, SwiftKey actually adjusts those letters to better suit where you tap. You never notice it on your keys of course, it's all behind the scenes, BUT IT HELPS ME IMMENSELY!!! My personal tap map is actually kind of awesome. Also it learns how you use your vocabulary, and how you personally text, so you'll never get those random word predictions that are totally wrong. After using it for more than a year, it'll know the next word I plan to type as soon as I type the first letter almost 100% of the time. SwiftKey truly helps me! Thanks to them I type much faster, more accurately, and overall I like everything their app does. There are sooo many different keyboard themes too, I highly doubt you won't find one you absolutely love... Hopefully this review helps someone who's interested in customizing their iPhone keyboard. I love it!
It could of been great.
by MisutaaUrufu on 2017/10/15 19:44
Yet it isn’t. There are two things about SwiftKey that turn a promising keyboard awful. The first is what I’ll call “multi-word gesture correction”. This isn’t part of the autocorrect function but rather a part of the gesture typing. So when i swipe a word, which it gets correct and adds a space appropriately, and then i swipe another word, it assumes that either the second word will fall in line with predictive suggestions for the first, or that I for some silly reason was swiping the word with two gestures, resulting in entirely correct words being changed to absolutely different words not even near what i wanted. It’s at it’s worst with “a” however. It seems to think I want to type out an a word rather than the one-lettered word itself. So a becomes “Alan”, or “assist”, or “Africa”, or “archaeologists”. It’s asinine! The second is the lack of custom themes. Im aesthetically picky, and i much prefer the “blurred wallpaper” look i had going with other keyboards. Not these cheap gradients (as nice as they are); it doesn't fit in. In all it’s a good concept gone wrong. It’s single word gesture prediction is pretty good, and i could even live without themes, but if it’s going to consistently rewrite my entire sentences because it thinks the word i swiped doesn’t fit with the other words, (and therefore i must of “swiped wrong”), then it’s absolutely garbage as a keyboard. Sayonara, SwiftKey. I hardly knew you.
Aggravating, barely better than the rest
by tr1999 on 2018/08/03 19:08
I've tried a bunch: Gboard has the best swipe dictionary but is unstable and prone to swipe "breaks". Swype was just unstable to the point of unusable. SwiftKey seems most stable but has fewer features than Gboard and the swipe dictionary is HORRIBLE. For example I cannot swipe "we" or "as" consistently because the w and e (or a and s) are too close. Half the time I get just e and often I get "rwe" whatever the heck that is. I've removed "rwe" multiple times from my dictionary but still it keeps popping up. The swipe dictionary is terrible, try swiping "how've" and I get "Hoeven" or "Glebe". Long press on the period key in a URL bar and you won't get the website extensions (.com, .edu, ...) that you get with the Apple keyboard or Gboard. Long press on the same key when typing a message and you only get a very limited (6) punctuation marks while Gboard gives you the whole punctuation menu. In short barely above a very bad lot of swipe keyboards
An amazing app, my #1 daily user.
by John Alden on 2018/11/29 04:52
SwiftKey is hands down the best of the keyboard apps I've used. There are things I still use other keyboards for, so it's not a universal solution, but the ease of use, the EXCELLENT swipe typing capabilities, and about the best predictive text I've encountered make it indispensable as an everyday tool. This one also gives cool statistical info on your typing and keyboard usage, including a "heat map" (recently renamed the "tap map") shows where your fingers THINK letters are, the total improvement to productivity, number of words typed, corrected, replaced, and a total distance your finger traveled across your phone screen while swiping (mine if over 2100 METERS!), etc. All in all, this is a must have for anyone that doesn't use voice dictation.
Love it
by Camryn Valencia on 2019/02/19 14:41
I love this app. In the Christmas of the year 2017 I received my iPhone and I was looking at the apps that my Nana and mom had. They both had these adorable keyboards and I asked how they got those and they told me it was this app. So I looked at the app and read some reviews and decided to dialogs the app. So I went in the app and was trying to figure out how to change my keyboard to make it a picture on my phone...and it turned out that I got the newer version of the app that my family had. And I didn't really care cause at least I can change my keyboard to something different from the standard iPhone keyboard. I kept up with the updates and this winter I updated the app and am now adding my own new keyboards. Love the app!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️😁👍🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Terrible
by gjbffyjktdcbjjjydx on 2018/12/20 15:50
I’m using talk to text to write this because the keyboard is so terrible. The word prediction is so bad I don’t even know What some of the words are or how it comes up with abbreviations for words Nor with these words ever make sense in a sentence. I like how the app gives you stats on how many words it’s predicted and change for you yeah it changes all the words most the time words that I have typed out right and then it goes back and changes and I have to redo them again. So I guess I’m going to go back to using the regular keyboard although I will miss my swipe texting terribly but at this point I’m using talk to text more than ever anyway so at least when I type words out it won’t go back and change them hopefully. oh and when I try to post this bad review I asked for a nickname and I’ve tried about 100 of them so far and it won’t let me use any so I’m guessing they probably block out the bad reviews by the system I’ll keep trying hopefully find one.
Great when it works
by Sodiumnitrate on 2017/11/06 01:12
First with the positives: I can use two languages at the same time. This is very important for me because English is not my native language but I live in the US. I also like the design and the ease of swiping and such. But it rarely loads within tens of seconds. I open up a messaging app, be it iMessage or WhatsApp, there’s no keyboard. I click on the text box to make it appear, and wait. It appears in a few seconds but the keys aren’t responsive. Then it crashes. I get the default iOS keyboard. I select SwiftKey from the list again. It appears and disappears. I have to do this several times until I can use it. It’s insanely frustrating. I’ve been using a swipe keyboard since my Nokia windows phone, and I’m so used to it that it’s painful to type on the regular iOS keyboard. And there doesn’t seem to be an alternative to SwiftKey that doesn’t have more problems. Please please can you fix this issue?
Built-in Clipboard a Winner!
by DaveKubi on 2019/05/01 19:56
I've used several keyboards and several separate Clipboard managers. I'm glad I found "SwiftKey" which an incorporates an easily accessible clipboard into the keyboard and which holds up to 10 clippings. I've been looking for this feature for a long time. It makes message composition so much easier! My hope is that the authors at least double the clippings the clipboard holds. Thanks! 7.9.18 Brilliant idea for the designer(s) of this app: Add a button to the keyboard which will stamp a (customizable) date and time to the text being. written. I would use this often in my daily logging of events. Thanks! 😎 5.1.19. Adding a number row almost has me back from "Slyder" keyboard. If you add a date and time stamp button I willbe back. Thanks. 😎
I love this app

I love this keyboard because it has so many functions and there is something very good and that is that when you only need to write numbers (for example, a phone number), the normal keyboard just sends you to the keyboard mode where there are numbers but also some punctuation marks but this keyboard sends you to a numeric keyboard and this could help to the people that are accustomed to using a numeric keyboard. Also, I have a lot of keyboards but I think this is my favorite keyboard. Also, I will not always use this keyboard because the other keyboards I have, have some things that this keyboard doesn't have like for example, I have 2 keyboards of fonts but this keyboard doesn't have fonts.
Much better than gboard again
by Anonymous veriewer on 2020/09/06 14:17
I miss the way gboard allowed you to erase the whole word when a bad swype led to the wrong prediction. But gboard has become useless lately in recent versions so I'm back. only 2 glitches seen in swiftkey settings. They are that the clipboard setting is at first inaccessible (you can scroll up to see it but can't click it bc the scroll resets back where it isn't on the screen [the fix is to hit the plus symbol in the top left of the keyboard and then the clipboard looking icon to shortcut to settings that way, then the feature isn't off the screen anymore]). Also the search bar doesn't work in the languages section (no keyboard pops up to type into [the clipboard fix seems to fix that too, maybe it just was not done installing]).
One Finger

I am a one finger Typer swiftKey has helped me tremendously with predictive words and also with my spelling. Love the different type of keyboards even the custom ones you can make I have chosen the nickel rose colored keyboard because of the very dark background I can see the keys better. The only thing that I wish is that they would make the keyboard where you can use a animoji. you can use emoji’s but not animoji's. All in all I am very happy with this keyboard there is so much more that can be said about it. I would recommend this to anyone. If you’re like me and like change on certain things you love this app literally has limitless Changes that you can make from their keyboard teams to custom themes that you can make. Very awesome app.
Very good!

It is outstanding! I love swoops typing more than ever now. Plus, you get a bunch of cool themes and keyboards. There are also some other cool tools that are not orginally equipped on the standard keyboard that comes default on iOS. I swipe typed this review actually! XD LOL HAHAHAHA It has saved me many taps and I think overall and general made me miss productive. Plus, you have multitudinous customization and versatility on the keyboard. There are accent colors and themes you can tweak. You can even make a theme for your keyboard as a photo you took already! Sweet! Awesome! Plus, it has awesome accuracy even typing on a tiny keyboard of an iPhone 5S, thus, my iPhone 6S broke and using this as backup currently. Anyways, I recommend getting this. Plus, it's free! :) ;)
Spyware.
by JackieBlueluck on 2020/07/19 02:00
This is spyware. Think about it. What greedy corporation wouldn't be salivating over getting their meathooks into one's writing of emails, text messages, shopping searches, search engine queries, etc. First of all, whenever I'm browsing anywhere (including my phone's own interface), pages are often slow, jerky, and "float" in different directions while swiping (this is telltale). Secondly, the biggest clue that it's spyware (and my biggest peeve), despite corporations being granted a 6 month extension to become compliant with the California Privacy Act, Microsoft lags behind and there is still no option to opt-out of the collection and selling of my data. Thirdly, when I switch back to my ios keyboard occasionally, SwiftKey fiendishly muscles its way back in. Finally, it stores passwords - which, unless this data is fully encrypted - is unacceptable. Apple is complicit.
