        Some phones got smaller display like s3 mini. Or some peoples got fat fingers.
        If you selling something you must think about customers satisfaction and ideas.
        Add a simple check box for disable stupid prediction bar.

        I don't understand why there's so much criticism and anger about the prediction bar in this suggestion, for which I get updates every days in my mailbox hoping that a dev answers it ?

        The predictions and the predictions bar are the soul of Swiftkey. They make it the best Keyboard on android. If you don't get that, please just pass your way, because the thread isn't about that.

        Could we please come back to the first idea of the poster of this suggestion :
        quote: "there should be a key that can easily turn it off in case you need it for just a second."

        "for just a second"... this is the point !!

        As an example : Sometimes, websites are not well html coded and some fields aren't recognized as password's field or email. It is annoying and could be tricky to type a password with predictions turned on.

        We would love you to add a little button to turn it off for 2 secs !

        I just installed Swiftkey. So far I really like it. Except that it has an annoying predictions bar that apparently can't be turned off. Worst is that it can't be turned off even though people have been asking for it for 3 years!!! That says a lot about the devs.

        I know enough. Goodbye SwiftKey!

        Why the F* can't I hide the stupid prediction bar down the bottom?

        1) It is not usable with Remote Desktop software like Microsoft RDClient as it blocks sight of the Windows task bar, which is the most important section of the desktop screen.

        2) Predictive text like that is not effective when using a physical keyboard. You can type faster than the time it would take to write a couple letters then select one of the predicted words.. Seriously my grandma could type faster than someone using the Predictive bar.

        3) Why do you not allow me to opt out of the Predictive text bar? How hard would it be to turn some of your functions off? As an intermediate Android developer, I know that it would be a piece of cake.

        Seeing that it is not usuable with a physical keyboard, ' gonna have to switch from SwiftKey to an alternate keyboard everytime and I definitely ain't gonna bother with that. Time to uninstall.. Bye.

        I normally love predictions, but there are sometimes when I have to write technical codes ore something very specific where it would be great to have a toggle button to turn them off

      • Maxim RealityMaxim Reality commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes, please add option to remove that bar. I'm using a tiny phone (Xperia Tipo) and in horizontal mode I can only see 3 short lines of text because the prediction bar takes up screen space. I don't want text prediction anyway.

      • Drew MasonDrew Mason commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Turning predictions off easily (toggle button) would be great. I often use predictions however there are many times I just need it turned off while typing things (have periods in them) and it takes 5 times longer.

      • neilneil commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        soo annoying i don't need predictions to finish my sentence for me

      • Jeff RodenJeff Roden commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I agree with another commenter that the predictions used to be better but now there seem to be more off suggestions.

      • johnjohn commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        person that decided on this bar should get fired, I'm deleting app

      • Jonathan McElroyJonathan McElroy commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Is there no way to remove the prediction bar? I have fat fingers and that extra space would work out so much better if I could use more keusl

      • EmmanuelEmmanuel commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Incredibile! Why you don't place a toggle for the prediction bar? This is very horrible for your customers: We, the users!
        I bought it but I will uninstall for this.
