    Very cool in IPhone! I was waiting for long time!
    Sadly, it’s also very disappointing that it doesn’t flow in IPad.
    Waiting for a new version with the feature.

      @jadersimes:disqus We are very excited about the first version of the app. We’d love for Flow to be there too! We hope to have a lot more amazing stuff coming the near future 🙂

  2. Peter Hicks says:

    Congratulations, Swiftkey! This was the only thing I missed when I moved from Android, and it works stunningly on iOS 8 now 😀 Definitely very pleased to see it grabbed the top spot on the app charts!

    Hi congrats on hitting number one in the App Store. This my first time using a third party keyboard and I am very impressed by the speed I am currently typing at. Feels very polished. Nice work! I’m glad I installed SwiftKey as well as a few other keyboards. BTW I have set SwiftKey as the default keyboard.

    • Josh, SwiftKey Community Team says:

  5. Mohammed Sahib says:

    It takes a second or so on my iPone 5 to load, I hope it gets a fix soon.

  6. xarli says:

    Add catalan language please!!!!!!!

  7. Gratian Tudorache says:

    how about the romanian language?

  8. Kenneth Thomsen says:

    WHEN will we see scandinavian languages?

    • Josh, SwiftKey Community Team says:

      @kenneth_thomsen:disqus We are really excited about this first version of the app for iOS. We hope to add more languages like Scandinavian ones soon in upcoming releases. Thanks for your enthusiasm and for using SwiftKey!

      • SuperKanin says:

        We are not using SwiftKey yet.. We want scaninavian language first! No point of using it without. Cant be so hard to add a language when the language is available on android.

  9. cr0ft says:

    Congrats on the great stats. Now stop admiring them and get back to putting useful languages in so I can actually use it. 🙂

  10. Rattashi says:

    Please add Croatian language as you have it on your android version.

  11. Pixelboy says:

    i feel like the updates on android are going to slow down because you’re focusing on iOS

  12. matt sharma says:

    Can you please update the app because currently it won’t scroll down to the last text message received when responding. Otherwise fantastic app!

  13. Shripad Sonavnay says:


    Request you to update the iOS app.
    1) On the iPhone 5, a delay is encountered when launching the keyboard after tapping the text area.
    2) Compared to its android version, the iOS version does not learn the language style fast enough.
    3) More themes!

    Understand that this is an initial release and you guys must be working on optimising it further. Thank you for such an amazing product.

    Look forward to the update.

    • Josh, SwiftKey Community Team says:

      @shripadsonavnay:disqus thanks for this awesome feedback about version one of SwiftKey Keyboard for iPhone, we are looking forward to improving the app in upcoming versions. Thanks for choosing us 🙂

      • Belloso says:

        any word on when this update is coming? These problems make Swiftkey really annoying to use. It’s been a while since you released and you must have known these issues ahead of time. please fix asap

  14. einsteinbqat says:

    Swiftkey does unfortunately not integrate with iOS Keyboard Shortcuts.

  15. Andrew Lewton says:

    Love the keyboard, used it on my Android phone, now using on Iphone 5S running IOS 8, but getting no keyboard clicks

    • Josh, SwiftKey Community Team says:

      @andrewlewton:disqus Keyboard clicks are currently not supported but we have gotten some feedback that folks love it. Feel free to submit this as a feature request at

  16. Bjørn Strander says:

    Norwegian please.
    Downloaded, can’t use it…

  17. B. Oblamer says:

    Voice input time to speak must be made longer. It stops within 1 second after speaking or normal hesitation. I cannot find any adjustment to lengthen talk time.

  18. fatih says:

    Does Turkish language support will be available?

  19. Walter von Ulrich says:

    Hi! Great keyboard 🙂

    Just few problems.

    1) Keyboard doesn’t appear in lockscreen while you quick reply to a message

    2) Keyboard doesn’t appear while you try to leave a feedback in app store

    Hope you fix soon 🙂

    Missing COPY, COPY ALL, CUT, PASTE, SELECT, DELETE, UNDO, etc like Touchpal X. Add CLIPBOARD menus (very useful for fast pasting texts) like Touchpal X. Sorry but swiftkey it history, i discover Touchpal awsome.

  21. Dadnatron says:

    Did you recently update the app? In the last week or two I have had so many errors and complete changes of accurate words to other words that I am thinking about deleting the app. I have had it for over a year and it has worked extremely well. However, recently, my S4 Android version has become more of a nuisance than help. Typing ‘content’ and it changing it to ‘contact’ is ridiculous. I have never had so many overt change errors, since I downloaded the app.
