Chan Abbasi , 29 Sep 2018 SwiftKey is best I use Chinese Google keyboard and SwiftKey, both have their pros, I love the SwiftKey for typing in English it predictive words is the best. While the Google keyboard is better on Chinese handwriting because it support stack writing.

  • Jí Lié

Pinyin input is terrible. Much better gbord. And their prediction dictionary lacks many many words at least in spanish.

-And now he's asking about ways to moetize the app, with premium features for a monthly fee or ads

also the autocorrect is pretty horrible when compared to, say, Gboard. there's no point to use Chrooma and I regret paying for the pro version.

Anyhoo, I replaced SwiftKey with Chrooma yesterday and so far I must say I'm pleased! Better tracking, better gestures, better clipboard management. And it has a shiny (probably battery killing) skin!

You don't need translator installed, just tap the button, it works pretty well.

Duck of death, 28 Sep 2018I miss Swype! Been using SwiftKey since Swype was mothballed and... moreYou can still get Swype apk, and update dictionnaries and everything,that's all part of nuance scheme to screwpeople, over 1 000000 install, and they clean it from the appstore.

Nuance love to buy product and kill them, providing licencing to smartphone compagny, all product bought by nuance disappear. the most shady company out there ! I hope they go bankrupt.
I will not trade my swype for any keyboards always have been the best even when I had swiftkey+ swype installed.

They also made a licence with their dictionnaries download for samsung keyboard.
I advise you too get the swype 3.0.2.3000210.48288 version, I'm gonna need to back up dictionnaries of swype, I don't know how long they will be able to download.

I really hate them.

I like it because I can customise the vibration strength and period. But yes it's getting too bloated. Lucky my phone is still able to handle it (OP5)

I just realised I switched that off already..... maybe giving Google keyboard a try....

SwiftKey is best

SwiftKey is best when Android is already on Oreo or Pie at least. I absolutely loathed the emoji blobs introduced in KitKat. Google got rid of it by Oreo and expanded the emojis to include Superman and mermaids.

My G5 on Marshmallow doesn't have the default Google keyboard emojis but my V20 still stuck on Nougat does with the hideous yellow blobs. That's why I can't stand LG these days. Two years and still no update to Oreo for my T-Mobile V20.

Like iOS9 should be the bare minimum to use for iPhones, I think Android 9 should be the bare minimum for me moving forward. There are some who hate Pie but I absolutely love it. Best Android update ever.

1. Pie
2. Nougat
3. Marshmallow
4. KitKat
5. Oreo
6. Ice Cream Sandwich
7. Lollipop
8. Jelly Bean
9. Gingerbread

Everything on Pie just feels so nice and well-optimized. SwiftKey on it is amazing.

So far, so good! Simple clipboard and edit gestures? Check! Non-schizo prediction, able to track even the simplest four letter words? Check! I think I've found a new useful keyboard! \o/

Also I can make my own theme which is nice, but the arrows are still the no 1 reason.

I miss Swype! Been using SwiftKey since Swype was mothballed and it sucks at everything. Lousy gestures, terrible tracking, mindbogglingly inconsistent and incomprehensible suggestions or prediction. I just don't get why people like SwiftKey! \o/

My Huawei phone came with this and it's a garbate-tier keyboard.
Google's is much better.

Correction: Display Size. Not Font Size.

That option might not be there for all Android phones. Changing the display size to larger on my Essential makes SwiftKey take up half the screen.
