  2. Insightful Swiftkey feedback on VIP?

    Hi there, As you have pointed out, this forum is no longer used as feedback. It has become a new Insiders Community. All general feedback and bug reports can be posted in support.swiftkey.com. Things were jus too complicated having both forums in one place. There is a moderator team that manages the forums now, they flag things to me in which we discuss are important. The forums at support.swiftkey.com are where you can post a bug or start a discussion, if anything, that forum is more easy to find and has decent engagement and attracts more of the average user. If you feel like your forum post is not getting attention, tweet it to us and or submit a ticket as well. I hope this helps.
  3. I've been scanning this forum and it seems rather dead. Other than the small bursts of activity around insider projects, there's not much happening. I suppose that may be the intent... The high quality feedback on new feature integrations is very high value. I recall however how specific and valuable the feedback on VIP was before the support forum split. When I look at the support forum now, it's a dozen posts an hour, mostly from people who haven't checked the options menu, or need to restart their phones. I.E. It's truly a support forum, in the customer help sense. My recent thread on this forum was closed due to it being too support like. Fair. However, my post demonstrated a thorough understanding of the current state of the app, and rather than asking how to do something or reporting a perceived bug, made a suggestion for the UI design direction of the app. I feel like this community is uniquely made up of a group of users who are unlikely to miss an option in the app, or mistakenly perceive certain behaviour as a bug. However, there is nowhere on this forum to have these sorts of discussions or provide this style of clean constructed feedback. I wasn't even sure what the appropriate thread for this post was! I feel like you would see a much more carefully thought out set of feature requests and design suggestions from the subgroup of users you've gathered in VIP. Cheers.
  4. Incognito mode more clicks now

    Hi, Please post your topic to support forum. Current forum is for VIP program only. Thank you Alpert

  6. Incognito mode more clicks now

    Hey! Beta app updated this morning. While there's certainly something eloquent about the new menu bar that pops up (I imagine the primary motivation was not taking away the keyboard itself on accidental taps, which I applaud) it has also furthur buried the only feature I ever open that menu for, incognito mode. I would love to see incognito mode brought forward more. I've previously suggested letting it be a long press on the keyboard, perhaps as an option to switch it with the emoji or voice input keys. I know option menu items aren't a favorite solution, so maybe switch themes and incognito in the new menu? Do people really change their themes on the fly as frequently as they switch in and out of incognito mode?
  7. What would you like to share from your keyboard?

    Let's say you're in an app and you want to share what you're seeing. Wouldn't it be great to have a keyboard shortcut or gesture to immediately capture the screen and share it in the running app or in other apps through the default sharing selector dialog? It would automate the screen capture process + reduce the steps required to share.
  8. What exactly do you mean? Want to provide some context? What was this make easier for you versus what your device is already capable of doing?
  9. What would you like to share from your keyboard?

    How about sharing the current screenshot?

  14. (Please excuse my writing a reply to this thread, but I was completely unable to start a new topic (the "select forum" field was unclickable). ) Hi. I've been a very happy Swiftkey user for several years now, first on various Nexus cell phones and a Nexus 10 tablet, and now on a Pixel phone and Samsung A (10") tablet. And therein lies the problem. With my new tablet, when I click in a text field, I no longer get the keyboard icon on the lower right of the screen, an icon I use regularly in order to switch to the Enpass keyboard and fill in user ids and passwords. There seems to be no way to temporarily switch from Swiftkey to another keyboard on this tablet. However, if I define Gboard as my default keyboard, I can long-press on the spacebar to switch keyboards. I have searched through the various settings in Swiftkey, but have been unable to find a similar functionality. Is there a solution to the problem on my tablet? I will add that I cannot get the centered number pad in landscape mode either even though it is enabled. Thank you in advance for any help you can provide. Jill
  15. swiftkey arrows keys order

    It would be nice to have a way to change arrow keys order. Example picture attached
  16. 7583 only. Does it reset if you change to different keyboard frequently? Sent from my ASUS_Z00A using Tapatalk
  17. Adaptive color theme

    I'm dying for SwiftKey to put this feature in the keyboard. I know we just got the custom photo feature, but having this feature enabled on SwiftKey would make me never want to switch keyboards again. One of the reasons being it keeps the theme exciting and fresh no matter what you're doing. Also, I trust the chrooma keyboard developer about as far as I could throw him (have not tested this) Would this be very difficult to implement? I'm not a dev just an avid SwiftKey devote-key (see what I did there?) Sent from my ASUS_Z00A using Tapatalk
  18. Almost one year ago i filed a support ticket regarding auto-capitalizing html input fields. (ticket 116289). This bug is still present. The bug is that Swiftkey is defaulting to Autocapitalizing for html input fields of type text. Even if that is considered a feature and not a bug, it should still be possible to use the attribute autocapitalize=off/none for the input filed to force non-auto-capitalizing https://developers.google.com/web/updates/2015/04/autocapitalize Stock Android keyboard, on Nexus 5x in my case, works as intended. Test here: https://davidwalsh.name/demo/disable-autocorrect.php
  19. Every time I come close to 15000, MAYBE 16000, the counter goes back to 10000. Am I alone in this? Do I loose words or is it a bug? Please check your stats for me, thanx.
  20. Rick & Morty

    Anybody here watch the show? Here's a few memes I've collected.
  21. -bìdh instead of bidh appearing at beginning of sentence (where bìdh could never occur normally) - this was mostly fixed in latest update -missing apostrophes, usually the apostrophes appear according to context but when I type Bidh mi.. The correct answer, a' never appears as an option instead the three choices (including a no apostrophe) could never appear in that context grammatically Another thing I have noticed is that these errors crop up in a lot of social media because Swiftkey is the only company that supports our language. The errors are so small that no one bothers to correct them so machine learning trains off a bad set. Other than that, it works great. I wonder if others have experienced something similar in other languages?
  22. We can never guarantee any features. But all suggestions are taken into consideration. I think this is a little beyond our scope for now, but who knows what the future holds.
  23. This is true, it's a fine line. We're already getting bloatware comments for adding GIFs and such. Yet, this is basically how the landscape is moving with keyboards. To a platform, not just a utility. We have some solid performance work underway right now. We should see some benefits of this soon.
