    All these fancy improvements and whatnot, but the stupid redundant comma button in the punctuation slider lives on to interfere with exclamation marks another day.

  2. Pietari Heino says:

    Could you answer these questions concerning the security of your app?

  3. dpkg says:

    I want to try the cloud version, but i don’t want to lose my existing stats. So will they remain if i install this beta?

  12. Jan Kurella says:

    I know this is special: I would like to have neo2 as an option for German layout and neo for other QWERTY layouts.
    Why not enable custom keyboard definitions?
    Also a fifth row with the numbers would be cool

    Is EVERNOTE ever going to be compatible again??

    • Nicola Cammisa says:

      Evernote and SwiftKey work just fine together on my Galaxy S3. Could you elaborate what’s the problem you are having with it?

      • Mike says:

        It’s hard to describe. Basically, when you go to edit, the text will get selected only partly so it will autocorrect strangely (or even just type the letters in the wrong spot) and you aren’t able to fix it easily, because you’ll try to move the cursor & it keeps selecting only part of the word. Sometimes you won’t even be able to move the cursor to the end of the note. Using the arrows on SwiftKey won’t do anything because it doesn’t change where text is selected although the actual cursor moves. Does that make sense?
        It was the same thing on both my Verizon S3 & now Verizon S4.

        • Nicola Cammisa says:

          Sorry for late reply.
          I don’t use arrows to move the cursors … I just point the finger where I want to point the cursor at.
          Not sure if it’s because of that, but I have never experienced the issued you described and I too have moved from different phone models ….

    • ameykelkar says:

      Evernote and SwiftKey work flawless for me too!

  20. Nicola Cammisa says:

    The new version works just fine, though I have not tested it extensively.
    When will it have support for Traditional Chinese with pin yin input?

  21. Bill Lee says:

    Got the new beta installed on new Nexus 7.I”m constantly hitting the “expand keyboard” when I mean to hit “c”. Actually, hitting one row down and to the left frequently. Almost like digitizer is off by just a bit. If I concentrate on hitting upper third of key it’s better. But hadn’t noticed this before….

  22. KOLIO says:

    The SWIFT KEY CLOUD BETA update will not download to my T-MOBILE G2X,the update d/l w/no problems on my HTC ONE & HISENSE SERO 7 PRO.

  23. KOLIO says:

    I found a solution for those having d/l issues w/the update APK:

    Get DOWNLOAD BLAZER from the GOOGLE PLAY STORE. Both the free & PRO versions will work. I forgot I had purchased this long ago & remembered when I was looking in the VIP forum for a solution.

  24. markgant says:

    I’ve been having trouble with SwiftKey not staying as the default keyboard. I paid for SwiftKey. A fix is to download and install the cloud beta, but I see this is a time limited version. Not a happy customer about now.

  25. ameykelkar says:

    Just what I was looking for.
    I seriously needed all my data to be backed up and synced to multiple devices.
    Thanks a lot! Looking forward for more enhancements.

  26. Ander Aguado says:

    Compré la aplicación y cuando Vodafone hizo una actualización del sistema operativo se me borró y ahora no puedo volver a instalarla a pesar de que ya he pagado por tenerla. Por favor solucionen mi problema porque si no me es imposible volver a adquirir su aplicación, la cual me parece la mejor de los teclados que existen en el mercado.

  27. I.S. says:

    I am a user of the paid version for about a year now. Updated my phone to android 4.3 a few days ago and faced the problem of Swiftey forgetting the setting for keyboard layout and falling back to qwerty every few minutes. This makes the keyboard nearly unusable for me.
    On your support page I read the hint of installing beta until the bug would be fixed in the full version.

    Unfortunately the beta says its already expired on august 13 and leaves me with qwertz layout, but limited functions, especially without flow.

    Any suggestions?

    Regards, I.S.

  28. Barbara Trollman says:

    Since the last couple of forced updates, my predictive text function is not working. When I text, no suggested words/phrases appear anymore. This makes this app unusable for me. I will have to switch keyboard apps until this is fixed. This feature has been nonfunctional for the since a couple of updates ago and there is nothing in the settings that would indicate it being disabled.

    Please advise.
