    Clipboard Backup

    Hi, Please notice 2 things: SwiftKey does not support 3rd party ROM. In other words, if SwiftKey has problem on a customized ROM, then unfortunately we're unable to help. Clipboard content is not available for backup. If you want this feature please head to our support forum and visit this post. Current forum is only for VIP program. I'm sorry to tell you that I need to close your thread. Thanks Alpert

    Multiple language mishaps

    Hi, Please notice this forum is not for bug report or submitting feature request. Only VIP topics are allowed here. Here I'll give you the answer considering you posted for the first time: SwiftKey supports multilingual input by default and as a primary feature. It cannot be turned off. If you want to ask further questions, please visit our support forum: https://support.swiftkey.com/hc/en-us Current thread is locked. Thank you for your understanding Alpert
  4. Hello VIPs, Here's the question (for android users only): (for multiple phones users, you answer by the phone on your pocket or in your hand right now).
  5. Well done! Should be an insider soon. Good luck!
  6. 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
  7. Have you tried to delete "Hi" and "Park" from the predictions? So next time when you type "h" key and "I" key, there would be "hi", tap on that. Same method for "park". I think this might help you.
  8. Understood. Can you give us some examples (screen shot, videos) of this kind of issue happens? And more details like : does it happen in a specific app or overall experience? During daily use, what percentage would you give for the chance you run into this issue?
  9. First letter of the first word in a sentence to be cap is the grammar rule. In my experience the grammar rule overwrites the word form. Because both prediction of cap and not cap exists in SwiftKey, the rules make the cap one in the front of sentence. And yes, if you want to have non cap word in the beginning of a sentence, you will need to tap on the shift to switch because this is not a normal use or a correct form. It's the same idea that you won't see SwiftKey cap a word automatically in the middle of the sentence. Because it's not the right grammar. SwiftKey aims to fast daily communication typing, regular stuff, so to follow the regular rules is easy and fast, more importantly is most people got used to and understand how they work. If you need something more specific, more professional, more personal use, you'll need a fully customizable keyboard to adjust everything. The plural issue, I just replied in your thread. Please check.
  10. Thanks Ryan. As I always use Chrome to browse the forum, there won't be difficulties for me to switch. But I do see some webpage compatibility issues of the new community. Hope it could be better. Glad that I can help this great app and service! Applause for all MOD members! And thanks for the great support from all VIPs ! Alpert
  11. Happy Lunar New Year !


  12. I don't use gif, Android support is poor...GIFs are really fuzzy, not clear, and not smooth. Better to introduce it later. And at the same time, it'll depend on the app (facebook, hangouts, wechat...) itself support gif or not. One step further : support 3rd party gif or not. It's not just a keyboard thing.
  13. If I understand correctly, you say that even you type " ALPERT" these keys, there won't be "Alpert" on your prediction bar? That's not normal. SK version number: you can find in SK settings > up-right corner 3-dot menu key > about. I suggest we look at the prediction words for the moment, can you upload a video, recording your typing? I personally suggest this app and strongly recommend to enable the "show touch" option in developer settings in your LG. Keep us updated. Alpert
  14. Merry Christmas everyone !

  15. Please remain calm. Please answer following questions and the one asked by Prad in the first post : Android version, SK version Thanks Alpert

    Wow, your phone is the app store... Not the app. lol!
  18. I believe there's nothing to do but just start to type. SwiftKey's new feature allows you to enable 5 languages at once then start typing directly without switching languages or layouts. And of course if you need to switch layouts, you can change the layout of each language. e.g. I enabled English and French, both in QWERTY layout, so I just need to type, SwiftKey will predict both languages in the same keyboard layout. But if I changed French into AZERTY layout, which is a more French way, then I would have English and French keyboard, which I could switch by sliding the space bar. Unfortunately for now some other languages who need a different prediction engine cannot be added into the "non-switching keyboard" mode. e.g. Chinese, Japanese, etc. When you enable those languages, no matter if it's in the same layout as English keyboard or not, it will existe otherwise, but also switchable by sliding on the space bar. That's pretty much how does it work.
  19. Done. I have to say Chinese input needs a big effort to make it better. But for French or English I am satisfied, it is the best I've ever used.
  20. Yes, for now only for English (US/UK). That's a good question, I guess it would. But better to wait for the official answer.
  21. Great move! Hope this would be applied to French and other language models too!

    [D] What's Your Phone Hardware?

    Hello, You should notice that this thread was posted back in early March, back to when 99% android users don't own a 6GB RAM phone. My purpose was to ask VIPs (back then, of course) their current setup and if they were pleased to have that kind of performance. For those who owns a device released before 2016, and also for who wants to upgrade their device in 2016. That's my purpose. Your answer is not what I'm looking for, but it's interesting enough to know obviously just after half a year, android users' requirements are doubled. Although there're still new phones even flagships equipped 3GB RAM are coming. Bigger phones, bigger screens, and of course larger batteries. 3000 is the least level for a 5.5 inch display phone. For me currently I'm using HTC10, 5.2 inch but 2K display, also 3000 mah battery, which allows it to last a full day of normal usage, but struggles sometimes when I take picture a lot or playing games a lot. But yeah, let's see what Google and Apple can give us later this year. Cheers Alpert
  23. Sorry, I got it wrong about the sign-in. Prad gives the official answer.
  24. Yes, you're right. Cloud sync is not activated on Experimental Keyboard because it's not the primary purpose of this keyboard version. With sync, many personalized words were already learned by SwiftKey, that requires much less type or Flow to get your words. The purpose of this experiment is exactly to improve the type and Flow experience, which means, the more you typed or Flowed, the more helpful information we could collect. And eventually it will be very useful to improve our typing and Flowing experience. The new beta version released on 5th august makes the sync back to normal progressively, from what I've knew.
  25. Yea, I know it. I miss the 9 key layout as well. Thank you for supporting our development!
