Typing styles to suit you
Are you a precise and careful typist, or a rapid and less accurate one? With SwiftKey X, we’ve fine-tuned typing styles to match the way you use your phone, in order to maximize efficiency and make typing messages a breeze.
Personal input modeling
SwiftKey X dynamically adapts the touch-sensitive area of its keys, based on your actual touchscreen input actions, resulting in predictions that are based not just on the words you tend to use, but also the way you type.
(enable up to three at once)
The new languages may take a few hours to propagate on our servers.
The are still occasional problems with personalization over a mobile network. Use wifi if this happens.
Certain apps still suffer repeated character problems. In particular, when deleting first word of a message in WhatsApp. We are looking into this. We have also had reports of problems with the search box on the homepage in Dolphin Browser HD.
Some issues remain in web text fields, which also affect the Android stock keyboard. We are currently investigating potential workarounds.
Occasional problem where "Clear personalization data" button is disabled temporarily until restarting SwiftKey X.
Switching orientation when in the middle of typing will turn on shift so that the next character typed will be in upper case as if it were the beginning of a sentence.
Deleting the first word in a sentence on hard keyboards will change the shift state of the first character (i.e. from upper to lower or vice versa). If this delete action is repeated, the shift state will alternate.
Whilst using the Light theme, there is a small gap at the bottom of the keyboard when it is in landscape.
