  1. Google Translate: Character in front of cursor gets deleted in Chinese stroke mode

    When SwiftKey is selected as input method, the character in front of the cursor gets deleted when you "draw" a Chinese character (e.g. 我) in Google Translate. This doesn't happen with e.g. Sogou input method.

        • Keyboard not popping up when I tap on input field

          Stock Droid 4 running Jelly Bean. Swiftkey will not pop up on screen after latest update. Problem is consistent across all apps. Will sometimes work randomly but is very laggy.

          Also, when typing on my physical keyboard Swiftkey will capitalize the last word of a sentence if it ends with a question mark or exclamation point. Very annoying.

          • Hangs at random

            Many a times when I get a message on WhatsApp or sms or email and I click on reply, the keyboard turns unresponsive. On clicking his keyboard button, I am taken out of the message.

            Too frequent on Nexus 4 with stock android.

            Please Fix for 5 star rating of an otherwise awesome app.

            • Decided to freak out with only using the middle prediction word and not what im typing and i cannot select my word from a list at all.

              I had to deinstall the app to type this.
              The app decided every word I was going to type was now going to be the middle predicted word that was commonly, "I". This was frustrating as there Was literally no option nor way to choose my word even if I had it all typed out, flow was useless because it basically wrote "I" over and over again with no way of not typing that letter. Will reinstall but would like swiftkey to take a look at this. Thanks!

              • "a" almost always changes to "à", even in an English sentence

                Active languages: French, Spanish, English.

                When typing in English (ie the entire document/post/text field is in English), "a" almost always gets changed to "à".

                      • Regional touchscreen dropout by using custom roms

                        Issue is decribed here in detail:

                        http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2169169

                        Very annoying issue, I experienced it in every custom Rom since they were ICS or Jellybean based.

                          • Will not type

                            Keyboard will intermittently not allow typing. When opening a text box the keyboard will appear and the keys are preassable with normal feedback but letters will not appear or be backspaced if letters are already present.
                            Locking and unlocking phone does not help, changing keyboard will help, clearing keyboard data and uninstalling do not help. It will happen to other installed keyboards but only when I'm primarily using SwiftKey and swapping back and forth.

                            • Area above the keyboard is 'dead' or erroneous. Nexus s with Android 4.1.2 (official)

                              I can't use send buttons, moving the cursor doesn't work. Just as if the app blocks more of the touch input than it needs.

                                  • Removed words soon return!

                                    Removed words (ie. deleted from SwiftKey dictionary) soon return.

                                    For example, my name is Benjamin Smith. When I type "Benjamin", SwiftKey suggests "Franklin"...so I removed "Franklin" and "Smith" became the primary word suggested after entering "Benjamin".

                                    Works for a few days then "Franklin" is not only back but first choice again! Ahh! I have had the same problem with other words that I have supposedly removed from the SwiftKey dictionary.

                                    • Sentences auto-capitalized even after auto-capitalization turned off

                                      I unchecked the Auto-capitalization feature, but some sentences are still auto-capitalized. Relatedly, the word "I" is also always auto-capitalized (not sure if this is covered under auto-capitalization, or if this is more of a dictionary bug where the word 'i' simply doesn't exist... But I can't even add the word 'i'!)

                                        • Hi, After the last 2 updates, all my word predictions are gone, flow is not working, voice input is shot as well.

                                          Hi,

                                          After the last 2 updates, all my word predictions are gone, flow is not working, voice input is shot as well and I'm unable to write a simple text message. Languages are English US and Spanish Latinamerica; it's unusable.

                                          Thank you
                                          Salvador
