    I would like to see a blue variation of the Pumpkin theme. It would look pretty good.
  2. 20 points
    Of the designs offered A2 looks the best in my opinion. But why don't you just make a theme like this: This is just the dark theme with a black background and the ICS blue for the keys. This fits in the general ICS theme perfectly!
  3. 18 points
    A1 and definitely square keys. The ideal Swiftkey X for me would look as close to stock ICS as possible, but with all the awesomeness of Swiftkey X's prediction magic.

    Hello VIP's I wanted to reach out to everyone letting you know that I will no longer be participating as a Community Manager on these forums. I've spent the past few years talking with many of you, helping us all through betas, improving the SwiftKey Keyboard, and having all sorts of other random great conversations. It's been a pleasure getting to know many you on a much more personal basis. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at SwiftKey but it is time for me to move on and explore other opportunities in my life. I hope the best for the community and SwiftKey and leave it in Prad's capable hands. Sincerely, Evan

    None of those... The only thing that ever had annoyed me in SwiftKey is the customization area... All the themes are ugly... The need to made a public stuff for creating our own themes...

    Swype has a way to select All, cut, copy, and paste by swyping from their options key up to A, X, C, and V If Swiftkey could do something like that, it would greatly enhance its use!

    A1 looks like the most professional. I don't like that blue for secondary keys, they are too visible, more than primary. And to be honest this doesn't make sense. So I chose A1 with squared keys (rounded path doesn't merge with ICS layout and feel) and less blue. Good job, anyway!

    Hello VIPs, Are you interested in using and testing the latest and version of SwiftKey Keyboard for Android before everyone else? Then you might be interested in being part of this beta community. If this is your first time joining a beta community, no worries, I can help you or the other community members can answer all your questions. If you are new to this, we currently use Google Groups as the main platform to sign up and maintain the group. You can find all the steps on how to join by going directly to our Google Group or you can follow the instructions I've created below. As a side note, this beta app will be a separate app from the market version. This means you can switch between the beta and market app for any reason at anytime (assuming you have them both downloaded and installed). To get started, please follow the directions below and complete them in orderDownload SwiftKey for Android Beta app now from the Google Play StoreUse the Android Beta forum to post bugs reports and participate in discussionsEnjoy using SwiftKey Keyboard for AndroidWhen the app is updated, we use the Google Play, "What's New" section to add release notes.

    EDIT: Due to the fact that SwiftKey Anayltics has now expired, the apk has been removed from this post. Thanks again to all who participated! Dear VIPs, We’re always looking for ways to improve the typing experience, and so we’re launching SwiftKey Analytics - an experimental new app just for VIPs that helps us improve by collecting useful anonymous mathematical data about how you interact with the keyboard. SwiftKey Analytics has the same features as SwiftKey 3.0.1, so you can get access to the new themes etc. right now. The data we collect will be used to analyze typing habits and the ways you interact with SwiftKey’s predictions. To reiterate, all stats are anonymous and do not contain any of your inputted text. We're not looking for feedback or bug reports, just for you to use this app in your everyday typing. - in fact we hope that you won't notice any differences at all. This app expires on September 25th, after which you can just go back to using your regular SwiftKey. To say thanks for helping us out, 5 lucky SwiftKey VIPs will win some SwiftKey swag. Just download the APK and use "Contact Us" within the app to say "I want to help SwiftKey and win some SwiftKey swag". Thanks for your help and co-operation to make SwiftKey even better. Evan

    i was stoked for the next theme for swiftkey but now it just doesn't matter to me. you should just let the world do the themeing for you,allow third parties to create themes, or JUST PUT THE COLOR SLIDERS IN AND LET US DO IT. what you are doing just seems senseless to me (make us wait months for a new theme, give us halloween theme but not christmas). personally im not a fan of any of your new themes, and confused as to why all of them are not being added to the next update. but my fav is A2. i dont mean to whine, im gunna use your keyboard regardless cause its the BEST, but everyone has there own preference, i just think we should be able to create it.

    Hi VIPs, We just wanted to take a moment to clarify the situation surrounding a rumor that has been circulating in the press — that we are bringing our SwiftKey Flow gesture-input technology to physical desktop/laptop keyboards. Today, we’re excited to confirm that this is true and we’re calling it “Flow Hard”. It’s our answer to the problem of seamless typing on a desktop keyboard. Using Flow Hard, you can simply slide your finger from key to key to type out words, enjoying whole new levels of speed and productivity. Read more about it on our blog here: http://www.swiftkey.net/en/blog/untap-your-potential-with-swiftkey-flow-hard/ See it in action here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QfhTWJIDCM Thanks, Evan and the SwiftKey Team

    +1 This theme is better than any of the options above. I'm using neon right now, and it's quite awesome... the graphics of the keys only being half there is awesome. I was hoping for something to that degree of design...but I appreciate the hard work on the options above. Voted for A2. But Mauin's is best!

    The Google Keyboard update in the Play Store today (Aug 28th) is amazing!!! It may actually be better than SwiftKey in a lot of ways. Here is a list of pros and cons that I found so far, judge for yourselves: Pros: Long press duration added (under Advanced). This was one of the major gripes before Gesture typing allows for circle gesture so you can type double letters in words such as bees, too, hello etc. -You can even start sentences with words like "Oops" and it will work perfectly without needing context. If you set auto-correction to "Very Aggressive" the predictions are just as good as SwiftKey, if not better Seem to be always quick and responsive no matter what Gesture typing works under all circumstances I've tried including "To" fields in emails You can click anywhere in a word to replace it, even while in web-based forms and Samsung email it works well When long pressing the suggestions you get many more suggestions When long pressing the ?123 button you can gesture to a symbol and save an extra step Customizable dictionary WITH shortcuts! It remembers email addresses Slide punctuation has many more symbols available and long pressing the period automatically puts a comma Seems to manage multiple missed spaces and removal of accidental bottom row characters very well Cons: No quick emoticon button Long pressing delete is slow and doesn't speed up There is no "learn from" option so it takes longer for the dictionary to learn your custom words and typing style. It does seem to learn right after saving however Only the basic Google theme is available and cannot be changed Long press is mainly limited to numbers, and accented characters. However the symbols are still easily accessed via the long pressing of the ?123 button Doesn't look like it can handle multiple languages at once but there is a quick language switcher if you hold the space bar No gesture to delete words when gesture typing is turned off Overall I feel it is the best alternative to SwiftKey that I've found. And I have tried probably every keyboard available in the Android market and a couple (such as Minuum and Fleksy) that aren't. If Google keeps this up I feel SwiftKey is going to be in serious trouble down the line if they don't add more features.

    please go with A1. I wouldn't let users vote on this. you'll just end up with over-done, over-the-top designs and colors. it happens all the time with custom roms... they look too colorful and are ultimately difficult to see and use. pro designs are usually very simple. please take design cues from the stock ICS keyboard.

    Hello VIPs, We will be changing the URL to the VIP Forums from vip.swiftkey.net to vip.swiftkey.com this is a minor change and might have some slight down time. This will be happening on Monday, February 2nd at 2:00am PST. We are told there won't be any downtime, but just to be safe there might be. Tapatalk users will be most impacted by this change. As this change will now have the forums pointing to a different ULR the current forums in Tapatalk will not work. According to Taptalk, it will take the app at most up to 24 hours to recache the forums. So, you have two options. 1) Wait for it to recache within that 24 hour period 2) Delete the forums from Tapatalk and rejoin, this will pull in the correct forum with the updated URL. Overall this should be a very low key change. If you've bookmarked this site, you can easily edit the URL to make these changes. I would imagine that still loading vip.swiftkey.net will still redirect you to the right spot but always better to have the right URL saved. Let me know if you have any issues when it comes to happening Monday. Cheers, Ryan and the Community Team

    Hi VIPs, Not only have we included the new Ice theme, but we've also included a new Easter Egg in the application. Can you find it? I'll give you a few hints. *It's related to Christmas. *It's related to snow. *It's triggered similarly to an Easter Egg that we had in the past. Happy hunting! Evan (P.S. The inclusion of this feature was created during our free time. No serious development time was sacrificed for this little bit of fun.)

    Please check the forum section under which this question has been posted. For your convenience - General Discussion - Other Apps. This section has been made for posting queries about apps other than SwiftKey. So, I have posted a general question regarding Android OS apps. I want to know which browser other people think is the best browser among so many good browsers, as per their daily usage. I hope now you understand the question and maybe be a part of this conversation. Regards, Ankit Sent from my Samsung Galaxy Win (GT-I8552) using Tapatalk Pro.

    I've been using Swype exclusively for a year, and and just now checking Swiftkey out... for curiosity's sake. I can't see how having to constantly tap everything could be as fast as swyping. If my 3-4 week experiment with Swiftkey changes my mind (by producing results) I'll accept change and switch.

    Hi there VIPs, You've been asking for a theme for Ice Cream Sandwich - so we've made you 6! Please take a look at the themes and vote in the poll - the theme that is the VIP's favorite is the one that will go into the next major version of SwiftKey. Hint: tap/click on each picture to see it larger.

    I wanted to post a rare message for me here in our VIP forum to say a massive thanks to you all for helping us out here. It's really appreciated. We in the engineering team at SwiftKey are always hugely impressed by the willingness of our users to help us improve SwiftKey. Your help is invaluable, in this case we literally couldn't do it without you. I understand that the inability to resize the layout is a pita for many of you, but it's important that we minimise the number of variables in this experiment. If your screen size is such that the layout size we've locked it to makes the keyboard difficult to use then I suggest you switch back to the beta for now. If we repeat this experiment with subsequent iterations of the keyboard then I'll take this feedback into account and try to make it easier for everyone to help us next time. Thanks again!

    I'm deeply concerned by this. Primarily because I'm not comfortable with my data being in the hands of Microsoft. Swiftkey has stored words I have typed which would be invaluable to a company like Microsoft. I reviewed Swiftkey's privacy policy and it states that if Swiftkey is bought (or merged) that my data MAY be shared with the new owners. IF my data is going to be shared with Microsoft then I can either turn off the features that make Swiftkey unique or stop using it. I cannot believe that when the founders were discussing the deal they did not talk about what happens to the data, where the product is going under new ownership or even (apparently) if the offices are moving! Given the rather patchy history of Microsoft's acquisitions, the sensitivity of the data Swiftkey has and Microsoft's potential use of it; I feel Swiftkey should be doing its upmost to be clear, transparent and open. They most certainly should not be hiding behind the stock phrases they are using to answer user's concerns. And while I'm on my high horse, am I the only slightly miffed that in the founder's announcement they thank everyone but the users? You know the ones that have stuck with Swiftkey during the bugs, the difficult transition to a freemium product etc. End of Rant

    Hi guys, There have been a few accounts recently that find it acceptable to spam total info that has nothing to do with swiftkey or its use. May I remind you all politely that spamming will not be permitted and any user found to breach this will find their account banned without further warning. It is unfair on those who genuinely wish to use our forums for feedback and information. Thank you all for your cooperation and on behalf of the team wish you all a very merry Xmas and thanks for your input and help this year.

    Hello VIPs, Our developers are always building cool stuff, with that said, we are proud to announce SwiftKey Greenhouse. This is going to be a place you can keep an eye on where we will release apps that are in alpha stage and looking for people to test and provide feedback. A key point here is alpha. The first release in this Greenhouse section is "Clarity." We've released a new kind of keyboard that focuses on the typing experience. You can read more about it and download it from here Check it out and help new products grow. Cheers, Ryan

    Hi Everyone, Today kicks off an improved experience and a brand new look to the SwiftKey help center. This new layout on desktop and mobile (for both iOS and Android) is designed to make learning about and finding answers to your questions about SwiftKey apps more seamless for you. Overall our intention in building this new experience was to make it more easier to find information, submit a request or just to learn more about the mobile apps we offer. The screen shots attached give a glimpse of what you will see in Chrome on Android, Safari on iOS or via desktop. For more information please take a look at our latest blog post. Thank you for your continued support! Cheers, Josh

    Hello VIPs, Today I'd like to announce something on behalf of our blog. For the past two years, we've had a small team of engineers working closely with scientist and Professor Stephen Hawking to integrate our predictive engine with his communicating system. It's quite amazing that we can finally announce this. SwiftKey as a company feel very privileged to be able to work so closely with Stephen and his team. It is truly an honor. I would highly suggest you read the full post - SWIFTKEY REVEALS ROLE IN PROFESSOR STEPHEN HAWKING’S COMMUNICATION SYSTEM Cheers, Ryan and the entire SwiftKey Team

    http://swiftkey.com/en/blog/meet-vips-boberry2009/ We’re big fans of our VIP community who are instrumental to our product process, particularly around big launches like we had two weeks ago. Today, we wanted to put the spotlight on one of our VIPs you may have seen – or been helped by – on our VIP Community: boberry2009. Brandon is extremely knowledgeable about SwiftKey Keyboard and so fantastic about helping other users. It’s been great to watch his awesome activity in our new Peer-to-Peer Community section here in VIP, and as a sign of thanks, we've shipped Brandon a care package which includes an exclusive SwiftKey t-shirt. For new readers and users, the VIP community is an open forum for users to give feedback, share ideas and get their hands on betas. For anyone interested in joining, we encourage you to check it out! VIPs are a hugely important part of the SwiftKey story, so thank you to Brandon and all of those who give their time and effort to making SwiftKey even better. Without further ado, we’ll hand it over to Brandon! 1) What’s your name? Brandon is my real name, and boberry2009 is my alias on the interwebs. 2) Where are you from? I was born, and still live, in the always-trying-to-improve city of Lansing, Michigan. 3) What’s your day job? During the day, I’m a cashier for the company of Kroger. During the night? Well, I’m currently trying to major in the art of sleep. (But that’s another story…) 4) How did you first hear of SwiftKey? Hmm… It’s quite the mystery, actually. I believe I first saw SwiftKey advertised in the Play Store as an “Editor’s Choice” back in Fall of 2012. Instantly, I fell in love. (Because stock keyboards just weren’t all the rage back then, and SwiftKey did it a lot better.) 5) What do you think makes SwiftKey different? Different? I think that’s a little too bland for the work of art that is SwiftKey; don’t you think? It is an extraordinary app, with extraordinary themes, and predictive text that tailors to the words/phrases/sentences you use everyday, extraordinarily. The predictions and Cloud capabilities are definitely where SwiftKey breaks the ice when it comes to other keyboards, especially with the option to personalize predictions via third-party apps like Facebook, Gmail, and even your RSS feed! 6) How many keystrokes have you saved using SwiftKey? Let’s see… 42,465. Okay, now I’m a little embarrassed. xD It’ll probably drastically increase over the course of the next couple of weeks, though. I blame my use of three phones (two of which were factory reset at least once), one tablet, and one laptop (because I just had to try out SwiftKey Flow Hard). There’s also the beta testing to take into account, but as one of my friends always says, “them’s the breaks.” 7) What’s it like to be part of the SwiftKey VIP Community? Definitely being able to help collaboratively create a better app; or rather, keyboard! The people alongside are equally as awesome, but it’s the ability to help others with their experiences using SwiftKey and listen to suggestions of features that really keeps me coming back. 8) What are your three favorite apps? (apart from SwiftKey) Endomondo – Occasionally, (ya know, when I’m not on the web) I like to go for a walk or a bike ride. This both gives me a visual of my trip and records so useful stats along the way. Google Play Music – A pretty minimalistic app, but with All Access, I can listen to whichever song I want, almost whenever I want to, with no ads! There’s a radio feature, naturally; and they even included the “I’m feeling lucky” option we’ve all tried at least once in Google Search. ;D SMS Backup & Restore – Let’s me backup my SMS and MMS to my SD Card (or even upload to Dropbox), so I can store them elsewhere to view later, without having them be deleted from a backed up Cloud by accident later. 9) What are your three favorite websites or blogs? Facebook – Okay. It may sound a little too mainstream, but I like keeping in contact with my friends; and Facebook helps me do that. (No, I’m not always inside when I post something. ) deviantART – A free image-hosting website where you can even order prints of your favorites. There are some pretty talented artists on this site, and they deserve all the page views they have. Serebii.net – The go-to place for PokéGeeks. A-yep. Can’t wait for November! ;D 10) Tell us something unusual about yourself! Unusual? Gosh; where do I begin? I guess you could say it’s unusual how outgoing I can be. From being willing enough to hug a random person, to pretending to be pregnant for a day (the struggle was real). From sleeping in a tent in front of a store, for a week; to whistling a solo during a 7th grade Mary Poppins choir concert in front of elementary school kids. Sounds pretty unusual to me! (Maybe it’s just me…) -------------------- Should you see boberry in your SwiftKey journey, please consider taking a moment to give him a friendly hello. We're all extremely fortunate to have people like him around.

    Hi everyone, Today, we’re very excited to be releasing a major update to SwiftKey Keyboard in the Google Play store and wanted you to be the first to know. This latest release is packed with a bunch of new features that are a direct result of your feedback, including more than 30 new themes, over 800 emoji, and much more. The other big part of the news is that SwiftKey Keyboard will now be completely free to download on Google Play. We founded SwiftKey to make it easier for everyone to create and communicate on their mobile devices. Making SwiftKey free is the best way to achieve our global vision, as we can now reach many more people around the world without price as a barrier. That said, we want to reassure you that the SwiftKey features you have come to know and love will remain yours. To mark the occasion and thank you for your support over the years, we have a gift for you: a special Premier Pack of 10 premium themes worth $4.99. This is available for all existing paid SwiftKey users to download for free! Instructions on how to get these themes can be found here. For a full rundown of the new features in this latest update, please see below - and as always, let us know what you think. Ben will be hosting a Reddit AMA to chat about the new SwiftKey Keyboard (and anything else you might want to talk about) in the near future. We’ll announce specific time and date details in the days ahead so stay tuned! Thank you for your continued support and for being a part of our VIP Community - you’ve all been such an integral and special part of SwiftKey these last six years, and we simply would not be where we are without you. We’ve got some great new stuff planned for the SwiftKey Keyboard and we can’t wait to share it with you soon. Cheers, Jon Reynolds & Ben Medlock SwiftKey co-founders New features include: SwiftKey Store - A place for you to customize your keyboard with great new add-ons! The store is stocked with more than 30 new free and premium themes and will be regularly refreshed. New default theme - We’ve added a crisp new default theme, ‘Nickel’ (because it’s based on the original Cobalt theme, and, well, Nickel is next in the periodic table). This is in addition to all the other lovely themes you’ll find in the SwiftKey Store. Emoji - Choose from over 800 emoji as you type, just a tap away from the regular keyboard. Tap the smiley in chat and messaging apps or long press the return key in other apps and away you go. Emoji are only available on devices running Android 4.1 or above. Emoji prediction - Let SwiftKey predict and suggest the emoji that you use the most! SwiftKey’s learning engine remembers the context that you use emoji in and will also predict emoji as you type relevant words. For example, type “burg” and the burger emoji appears. To enable these features, go to Settings --> Advanced and check the box marked ‘Emoji prediction’. Number row - Due to popular demand, this latest update introduces access to an optional number row without requiring you to switch layouts or use long press. Enable this in Settings --> Layout, along with some other clever features. Improved prediction engine - We’ve added better capitalization awareness in predictions and updated our technology’s overall learning ability. For the smart multilingual folks out there, we also have good news as we’ve improved our multilingual capabilities, meaning you can now magically type in up to three languages at once with even better accuracy! New languages - We now support 66 languages at a contextual level, which is awesome because it means even more people worldwide can benefit from using SwiftKey. The new languages are Belarusian, Mongolian, Tatar, Uzbek and Welsh. We’re also hard at work on more languages, including Japanese, which is in beta here. New and improved Flow trails - What’s a Flow trail, you might ask? Well, it’s the line that your finger leaves on the screen when you gesture type. From today, those of you who like to use SwiftKey Flow will notice the trails are clearer and more visually appealing, helping you type with better accuracy while also looking really cool.

    Hey VIPs! We fielded a survey with 22,000 individuals to find out some insight about smartphones, keyboards, their usage habits, their preferences, and more. One result we found that really stood out was that 48% of respondents cited the ability to type easily as an essential function. We think the results are pretty fascinating, and would love to hear your take on it - and your preferences as well! Check it out here: http://www.swiftkey.net/en/blog/typing-experience-tops-price-and-call-quality-in-swiftkey-survey/ Cheers, Nicky

    I personally just use Chrome. If a website isn't coded properly for Chrome, I honestly think the developers of the page are doing it wrong, especially given the marketshare of Chrome over other browsers. I remember trying Dolphin a while ago and I thought that the concept of additional plugins was interesting, but I still came back to Chrome. I'm a Nexus guy by nature. I don't stray too far from stock unless I see some serious benefits for my normal usage.

    Hi VIPs, Here's the reveal: Type hohoho into SwiftKey, then longpress the word "hohoho" in the prediction bar. Snow will begin to fall across your screen. To make the snow stop falling, simply close the keyboard. We hope you enjoy this additional bit of fun. Happy holidays! Best, Evan

    Hi VIPs, http://www.swiftkey.net/en/blog/meet-the-vips-eezeepee/ Each one of our VIPs is very important to us. Your kind participation in beta testing is only one piece of the larger puzzle. We've just published the blog post above explaining this and would love the opportunity to introduce you to EeZeePee. Should you see EZ during your SwiftKey journey, please consider giving him a friendly hello. Like many others, he's an active role in our community and also transcends the boundaries of this forum. EZ! The entire SwiftKey team thanks you kindly for your passion, your drive, and your constant willingness to help others. We hope to feature more VIPs like this in the future. Kindly, Evan

    We're extremely grateful for our customer loyalty. People spread the word of SwiftKey. In turn, we constantly strive to deliver the very best keyboard possible. I wouldn't officially make a comment on Minuum's decision to fund a keyboard and pay to Beta test. The way that I personally see it, you all are providing us with extremely valuable feedback. A single bug report during a Beta might make the final product all the better for many. FWIW, I'll fight until the end of days to prevent us from ever charging for SwiftKey Betas. They appear to have a difference of opinion. I truly wish them the best of luck. I'm a strong believer in 'competition'. This way, the enduser always wins.

    Hi guys, I think I've fixed this? I can now browse the posts in a forum via the 'Forum' menu in Tapatalk 2. Can you take a look for me and see what you think.

    In the Swype Beta, I like being able to click anywhere on a word after I've moved on and change/correct it to one of the other alternatives. For SwiftKey, I have to specifically go to the end of the word to get the predictions because if I click in the middle of a word it won't correct the entire word.

    And it's all down to you! Jon our CEO says this: “To be pitched against a company such as Google, and beat them in a public vote, is an incredible moment for us. “It goes to show you can be a small company and compete with industry giants. “On behalf of the SwiftKey team, I’d like to thank the users who voted for us – not just the well-known ones such as Stephen Fry, but the thousands of people who understand that we put innovation at the heart of what we do. “We owe special thanks to our 50,000-strong VIP forum community, whose feedback and passion are central to our success. I dedicate this win to their enthusiasm and engagement and to the commitment and skills of our growing team.” Read more on the SwiftKey blog.

    No offense but I'd like to see all the major, real features rolled out and issues fixed before novelty languages are even entertained. Who cares about talking like a pirate when I try to delete and it repeats the last word 17 times? Or hitting the bottom row charactersvwhen I really want a space. These novelty languages seem like a gimmick that you'd use a handful of times and turn off. I'm all for fun but isn't that a waste of precious development time?

    I would like to see the main keys be darker. Closer to the stock ICS keyboard style. The keys themselves are almost a little too "bright grey" if that makes sense. Take A2 and make the base keys darker and it would be perfect.

    Hello Truewt, We certainly did not gave up Chinese and in fact we are still working hard on Chinese for SwiftKey. It takes longer not only because it is much more challenging to implement, but more importantly because in terms of input methods, "Chinese" is not one input method, but a family of input methods. When referring to "Chinese input", different users in different Chinese speaking regions mean different things. For example, in mainland China and Singapore, "Chinese input" means "entering Simplified Chinese characters", in Taiwan and Hong Kong, it means "entering Traditional characters". and by "entering simplified/traditional Chinese characters", some people prefer "Pinyin", while some other people prefer "stroke", or "zhuyin", or "Wubi", or "hand-writing". In Hong Kong, people also speak Cantonese and they have "Cantonese pinyin (jyutping)" and "Cangjie". Therefore it takes longer, to integrate all these input methods and uphold our SwiftKey's powerful predictions so when it is out you will be enjoying it.
