Welcome to this week’s installment of SwiftKey Keyboard Tips & Tricks! This week, we’re talking about a little tip that applies to both Android and iOS – yay.
SwiftKey offers a few ways of inputting text quickly and easily, but one of the coolest is being able to use SwiftKey Flow: typing by swiping your finger over the letters.
Today’s Tips & Tricks post is focused on how you can go back and correct a wrongly Flowed word, on both Android and iOS.
When you are Flowing and the word predicted by SwiftKey is different than what you had intended to type, simply hit the backspace key once. This will then show you three different word predictions in the candidate bar.
The words shown might be a variation of the word that was inserted, such as a the plural version or offer two completely different words that SwiftKey thinks you may have meant to type.
In the example for this post, I typed (in both Android and iOS!), “I want some” then I Flowed “good” then tapped backspace and SwiftKey automatically gives me a list of three different words that are based on the same flow trace used to produce “good”.
