    Hello everyone, SwiftKey has always been very interested in getting feedback from our community. There was once upon a time a private beta community helping test SwiftKey before the official launch. In fact, this was the genesis of the VIP forum. Since SwiftKey's inception, we've had a range of beta programs: public, to private, to very private. Now that SwiftKey for Android beta is completely open (and listed in the Play Store) that community and feedback has moved over to our support forums. We felt like this just made the most sense. What do we do with this forum then, you say? Launch A New Community - Of Course Keeping the spirit of this forum's creation alive - testing and early feedback - we are proud to announce the launch of SwiftKey Insiders. Wait, hold on a second...SwiftKey Insiders, you say? Sounds a lot like Windows Insiders? Well you're right, it is a very similar program. If you missed it, SwiftKey was acquired by Microsoft in early 2016 - that is part of the reason why we are using the SwiftKey Insiders name; plus it also rolls off the tongue nicely. What Is SwiftKey Insiders? SwiftKey Insiders is designed to be a smaller community focused on giving feedback on new projects we are working on. (more on this later) Since this is a smaller community, there will be emphasis on quality. What do you mean by quality? We want members to be very active and engage with us and other members regularly. We don't want this to be a chore, this should be a fun and enjoyable experience. How or why would it be fun? We're glad you asked. Why Should I Join? We are looking for people who like using SwiftKey and want to help make SwiftKey and any future SwiftKey products better for yourself and everyone else who uses them. How? By providing your honest and thoughtful feedback via the projects that we share with you. While we know that many of you who identify as "power users" and early adopters enjoy beta testing apps, we also hope that some of you who just use your phone a lot will want to participate as well. Everyone's opinions matter equally here! What Are These Projects? We will be sharing a range of different projects through this community. They will be based on features and products that are currently in development and we want to get community feedback on how to fine-tune them and make them better before they get a full rollout. Here are some examples of the types of projects you'd see: Mockups Early designs Surveys (most likely lots of them) Polls Prototypes Virtual APKs Trust and Validation Since this community is going to be focused around unreleased features and products, there needs to be a level of trust here. If you decide to signup - we do ask you quite a few questions to get to know you a little better and why you want to join. You'll also be required to sign an NDA. Supported Platforms Sounds great, how do I join? This community is currently only open to Android users. if you do use iOS or Windows, feel to sign up in the event that we open this program to support additional platforms. If this sounds like something that interests you, sign up using the signup button.

    I have made some changes to this post to make it more clear what this new community is about and how to get involved. SwiftKey VIP 2.0 is the same thing as SwiftKey Insiders - so if you were already a part of SwiftKey VIP 2.0 and participated in projects, then you are already good. I would highly suggested you still go edit your profile and account preferences to make sure we have all the right information for you. Also as mentioned, this level of editing cannot be done with tapatalk. You will need to go on a mobile browser.

    Hey VIPs, I know we currently live in a world of sharing things, so I thought about this question. "What types of content would you most like to be able to share / input direct from your keyboard aside from gifs and stickers?" Best, Ryan

    VIPs, If you happen to really enjoy Facebook but don't want their app taking a huge portion of your devices memory.. you might be interested in Facebook Light. Read more about it on Androidandme.com Will you check it out...or nah? Cheers, Ryan

    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.

    Can you add some mini games right into the keyboard? I know it's weird but it's just a suggestion. Actually I have sometimes a very long conversation or sometimes have to wait for something to get answered in a group where you have 100+ members. So having mini games right into the keyboard will help to pass some time without actually leaving the chat. What do other members think about this?

    Not much, but I get meetings and other notifications straight from Google Calendar into this nice little widget. Basic, but I like it.

    For anyone that understands more than language just a little bit should know that not everything in one language transfers over to another. What this means is that saying one thing in a language could mean something completely different or mean nothing at all in another languages. We've gone ahead and made a list of 10 words from different languages that we think should have an English equivalent. What do you think of these words? Do you have any that you'd like to add? Read the full post Top 10 ‘untranslatable’ words that should exist in English Sound off in the comments Cheers, Ryan

    I love stuff like this. I knew about fremdscham already, because I needed a word to describe why some comedies are unwatchable for me. My wife is pochemuchka, everyone says so, although not in so few words. I've got another German word for you: Torschlusspanik: the feeling of urgency or panic to accomplish something before some imaginary gate closes and “it’s all too late.” It’s mostly used for those who sense their biological clock is running out and feel the need to settle with a partner or have children immediately. What a jem, thanks Ryan, sorry for the necromancy. [emoji33][emoji33][emoji88][emoji88][emoji88] #necroposting

    Hi, I suggest you to do it on mobile browser (Chrome, for example), or on a desktop. I doubt Tapatalk supports deep settings like these. Best Alpert

    I don't know guys, I really tend to stick with @driftinganomaly ; we need features, not gimmicks. Sharing al kinds of stuff is not a task of a keyboard but should be done in the source app. Maybe only share SwiftKey stats. I really would like to see intuitive solutions for copy/paste functions (multiple and programmable clipboards would be nice!) and typing email addresses or URLs. In other words: Let's get the basics of everyday typing sorted first.

    I'd like to share my SwiftKey's stats so far (saved words, keystrokes, etc). That would be surprising for people to convince using SwiftKey.

    Clipboard items (yeah; we've all submitted/seen that one before), custom shortcuts/ common phrases, also phone numbers and email addresses (in agreeance with Sarge), recent camera photos, links. Hmm...anything else?

    For starters, phone numbers and email addresses, though that's just the tip of the iceberg.

    Hey VIPs, I randomly came across this actually pretty interesting post in Fast Company about the poo emoji. Who ever would have thought that an entire article could have been written about a silly poo emoji. Check out the full article - THE ORAL HISTORY OF THE POOP EMOJI (OR, HOW GOOGLE BROUGHT POOP TO AMERICA) What do you think about the poo emoji..or emoji in general? I always acted like it wasn't a big deal to have them (when Android didn't) but I like to use them now that I can.

    I think that would be fun, my only concern is the bloatware factor. You could increase the overall performance of SK with the introduction of this feature and keyboard warriors everywhere would still scream bloatware.
