Learn from Google Voice
Ability to learn from google voice sent messages. Some user may rely on google voice as their primary text service.
My entire family sends thousands of text and use SwiftKey but all text are via Google voice.
While its nice that the keyboard can scan my gmail, my twitter and my blog.. what would be a lot nicer is if it were able to scan all of my google voice texts. While the other personalization methods are nice, i primarily text on my phone. All of my text messages go through google voice for the past 2 years, so it would be able to make a better personalization. Gmail and facebook leads to errors when i type due to texting shortcuts not coming out correctly
Instead of having it look through gmail, enable the keyboard to learn habits through google voice.. Since those are texting habits instead of email writing habits
It would be great if SwiftKey could learn not just from stock SMS app, but also from Google Voice app. A lot of Android users are using the system for the Google Voice. Free sms and calls - cannot beat that. I disabled vzw SMS on my account long time ago..
yea, i use google voice as my primary sms, so it is kindof annoying that it doesnt learn from my text messages.

Agreed. It is frustrating that the app that I use the most isn't adding to my library. Please make it so.
Add another one for GV support
Agreed, pleas make it so.
Agreed, I only use Google voice.
Please add! I only use Google voice for text now!
Google Voice is my primary text/calling service. I support this idea!

How do I us voice command on my swift keys?

I too exclusively use Google Voice for all my texting as Sprint has it integrated. Wish it could learn from those texts.
I hope this gains some momentum. Now that I've reinstalled SwiftKey (thanks to the ICS voice typing update), it would be great if I can make SwiftKey learn from GV.

I am on the same boat as other users on the site. Google Voice would be a great advent

I, too, only use Google Voice for texts, and this addition would be extremely welcome.
This would the most welcome feature addition for me as well.

Since I flash my phone so frequently (and don't back up my texts), google voice is the only app that has all of my texts logged. This would be extremely helpful, especially for sprint users.
The technical side of this isn't looking good…
Google Voice does not have an official API. Unofficial APIs work by logging with your Google username/password (i.e. no OAuth which is what SwiftKey does now to learn from Gmail) and screen scraping to extract calls/texts. Not ideal from SwiftKey's POV.

I too, only use the GV app, ever since I did the Sprint/GV integration.
