  1. It's all about how you post, if posts start off with version numbers and specifications between beta and market it makes a huge difference for us as the moderators and SwiftKey teams. I haven't had an issue regarding posting through mobile, using Chrome browser it has been substantially easier regarding notifications due to Tapatalk instability via multiple forum sources. It's much more streamlined for new users to find, which is ultimately the goal, more interaction and involvement is always better via public forums. Change is constant, and by far and away rarely received well, but I will say give it a chance and you will be surprised at the speed and clarity of the new community!

  2. As a moderator, I was originally upset about this as well. I will say, however, that the mobile version of the Support site is very user friendly, and wonderfully formatted for mobile screens, so now instead of a third party app, you can use your favorite mobile browser to view, comment, and discuss different things over on the new U2U support site!
  3. Favorite theme on SwiftKey

    Right now I am personally stuck on the dark Ninja theme. It's pretty interesting watching my wife try to type on my phone. I really enjoy the new challenge of seeing how accurate I can be, and pushing SwiftKey's autocorrect to the absolute limit. It's pretty fun.
  4. What Launcher App Are you Using for Android?

    Nova Prime and Apex have served me very well. I'm still disappointed in TouchWiz and the plastic feel it comes with, although I will say that the functionality has improved, it's still quirky in some ways though.
  5. What are your top 5 favorite Android apps and why?

    Oddly enough I haven't used an anti-virus in some time. I really haven't used obscure enough apps or apps downloaded from another source besides the playstore. I also found most anti-virus apps to be quite intrusive and demanding for both performance and battery life. Nevertheless, this is a great list, Maps definitely makes my top 10!
  6. What are your top 5 favorite Android apps and why?

    1) SwiftKey. There has yet to be a utility on my phone as important as it. 2) Pixlr, excellent photo editor. Huge considering the platform. 3)Instagram, vaping is a huge hobby of mine and this is the best platform for the vaping community! 4)Spotify, with Spoticast (stand alone app) I can still steam to my Chromecast, and it seems to have more of a my style of music collection than GPM 5) reddit is fun golden platinum - because reddit is amazing.
  7. Do you remember what your first phone was?

    I had the Nokia 3310. Thing was a monster. I think I paid 15 for it for a Cingular prepaid before AT&T bought them out. Shortly after that I upgraded to my favorite of flipphones And then started my interest in HTC as them and QualComm had got together to develop Windows phones, such as the OG HTC Touch. Fun times.
  8. Theory of Everything is actually on my watch list now. Dr. Hawking has been one of the biggest influences in my attraction toward theoretical physics and really my driving force behind my fascination with space and time. I wish work would lighten up so I could have time to watch it. I have already seen The Imitation Game. The history seemed solid, although exaggerated based on what I've read, the acting is solid and it is a good movie. Definitely worth a watch for sure. I like that American media is becoming more cultured, although I think Netflix and the like have pushed that further with their support of foreign film. It is exciting though, now the movies I see aren't obscure, they're just on Netflix
  9. ISO standard date

    I would honestly attribute this to the international use of this application. Every country dates differently than others, and numerical language is barrier proof, so it would be a sweeping generalization. For instance, EU standard is DD, MM, YYYY while US standard is MM, DD, YYYY I would presume that this is to minimize alienation of a specific standard.
  10. SwiftKey keyboard for Windows Mobile....PLEASE!

    I'll give you that. One thing to note though, with Surface comes the keyboard, and Microsoft being the company they are will want that to stay proprietary. Windows Mobile serves a very specific group of clientele and really don't even try to expand out of that. They create great workspace environments, Android just perfects the personal experience. Windows has found a niche and will stay just that, I doubt there will be enough growth in that market to really even interest any third party keyboard/interface development.
  11. SwiftKey keyboard for Windows Mobile....PLEASE!

    I'm fairly certain that Microsoft markets are more closed off to third party developers like SwiftKey than Apple is. Microsoft prides itself in creating a fluid experience that is unique to their devices. To allow SwiftKey keyboard on their market would cause them to admit that they fail at designing keyboards, and as it stands, Microsoft doesn't do that. I would suggest moving back to Android, friend. Simply because out of the great Smartphone race, Microsoft is behind Blackberry, and RIM almost went out of business three times in the past 2 quarters. It's simply a dying market. Too little, too late in my opinion. Even with Microsoft acquisition of Nokia, I truly don't see them doing anything worthwhile to get back in the game.
  12. Facebook Light

    That makes more sense lol! And yes I agree, but Facebook has almost NSA level brazen actions when it comes to interfering with privacy protocols. In all honesty, I'd be happy if applications would take a 'per diem' approach to applications, and use permissions as they are needed then relegate the application to isolation of the device. In other words, Facebook just needs basic permissions to run, however if you want to upload a picture it then needs access to your camera/media device, for that instance I grant it; after the operation is completed, remove the permission and thus Facebook's intrusion into my device. Although it would take more computing power to constantly adjust protocol for applications interacting with the device, I think that the small inconvenience will parlay paranoid actions toward specific applications. Facebook, of course, being the most intrusive.
  13. Facebook Light

    It is a standalone app, it even implements messenger internally rather than a separate application. It does not open in the browser, it's rather terrible looking but user interface is usually the most cumbersome in terms of performance. It flies on my Note 3, and seems to run much smoother than the Facebook application, in background or up front. I definitely appreciate Facebook trying to make their application more accessible, I just wish they could make the complete application halfway reliable and less reliant on every permission my phone has.
  14. Bom Carnaval!

    This theme is wicked.
  15. Google Maps turned 10 over the weekend

    I use Google maps almost everyday. There has yet to be a more accurate, regularly updated map service aside from GPS companies like Garmin, and I like Maps layout better. I couldn't imagine following directions from Mapquest ever again. The fluidity between devices is also very impressive. I can view directions on my PC and then send them to my phone to go into my GPS
