How can we improve SwiftKey?

switch "voice input' with "voice typing" in ICS.

Allow to change the voice input option. so we would be able to use the voice typing engine in ICS.

        I just downloaded SwiftKey and so far so good, but I do not know how to use the voice dictation for text and email. Would appreciate some education on this.

        Spoke with Samsung this AM and they assure me the Google Voice Typing feature should still work with JB. However, they could not figure out how to activate it on my phone other than suggesting a cold reset. Not gonna happen! Anyone else have any ideas/suggestions?

        agree with Simon (Nov 17). Just got ICS on my SGS3 and Speech to Text only works when I'm on a wifi connection. Does NOT work with LTE unless I manually select Google Voice. It used to just happen if I clicked the microphone.

        The speech to text does not work on Samsung galaxy S iii using jellybean

        How do I get rid of that pop up window when using voice dictaion, it is one too many steps.

        Great job with the new update! I'm a long time user of your wonderful keyboard, and with the addition of ics voice typing I'm even more impressed. Thanks for listening to the community and producing such a fine product.

        This is the single most awesome feature I've been waiting for since ICS. Thanks guys for incorporating this.
        Keep up the good work.

        Wow, now, that's perfect. I love the fix. With this fix, you will get tons of new people coming to you. Thumbs up...

        Swiftkey you really made a big mistake by not incorporated ice cream sandwich voice to text as an option with a keyboard. As a result I have switched to using the stock android keyboard because personally I like the fact that allows me to use the native voice to text that google offers with ice cream sandwich without any hassle.

        SwiftKey admin responded in January. Verizon just updated many phones to ICS. SwiftKey ratings dropping in play store.

        Swift key is an excellent program, but the voice typing in ICS is superior and should be an option

      • CaryCary commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please get rid of the garbage SwiftKey voice search and implement Google's. Why was the SwiftKey one used in the first place

      • Adrien G. Adrien G. commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        The only time i used voice dictation was using swiftkey and i thought that how it was working until i tried my wife's phone and her regular swype keyboard coming with the HTC one S and I loved it. Printing as the same time you dictate is how it should be. I am only giving 3 because thats the max i can give. I would give all my vote if i could....
        Please implement ASAP, please pretty please, it is all there for you already.

        This is simply ridiculous. With the code already shared here what looks like 2 times already, there is NO (logical) REASON this isn't in SwiftKey.

        I wouldn't call the developers lazy. They know how easy it is to implement. This is a management decision. Something they aren't willing to share with their customers. Its possible voice typing some how hinders their product (for example, can't collect data on whats being typed).

        Unfortunately, there is very little we can do as paying customers. They've already got our money. Their job is done as far as they're concerned. Voicing our frustration here has little affect and obviously a wasted effort.

        Android 4.1 has a predictive typing engine (doesn't seem as good as SwiftKey). Hopefully google improves it in future iterations, making SwiftKey obsolete.

        If swiftkey was willing, I'd love to get my money back!
