    We recently published an update of SwiftKey 4.2.0.155. Reduced lag and better overall performance was one of the many things that was addressed in this release.

    In the event that you are experiencing significant lag in that release, please create a new post containing relevant details in our public forum at support.swiftkey.net to bring it to our attention.

    Thanks very much.

        Same problem here. Rooted Samsung Galaxy S2x running CyanogenMod 10. I like the keyboard but it's unusable in this state.

      • BoydBoyd commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        my phone has had lagging performance since upgrade....so terribly annoying, and it effects everything, not just keyboard. Today i turned of SK and, voila, everything works normally again. Please, can't you fix this?????????? Here are all these comments... yet no solutions from SK????
        Motorola Razr Maxx

        I've been using Swiftkey for more than a couple of years... but i'm witnessing this lag lately.... Most of the times, the keystrokes are just missed ... ! I'm on Nexus 4 kitkat 4.4.4

      • Michael KingMichael King commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        So why is this marked as completed when there's a full year of comments saying it isn't? I know a few $$ isn't a lot of money, but it's money, and we paid for a working app. I've upgraded my phone and the app runs *slower*. This seems backwards. Can we get someone else to respond or is this even read by anyone at SwiftKey??

        Extreme lag when typing has been resolved for me on my Galaxy Note 8 by changing a simple setting.

        Go under Accessibility >> Magnification Gestures (which zooms in & out of the screen with a triple-tap).

        I just turned off this setting (which is on by default) and now my SwiftKey typing lag is gone and I don't have to use the stock keyboard anymore. :)

        On the nexus7 I have huge problems with lag especially in long text files, in more than one app. The same files are fine on my S3 mini (on which SwiftKey is hyper responsive).

      • ThorThor commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        WHEN are you gonna fix the lagging? It's getting worse with every update -.-

      • Rian80Rian80 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        SK is one of my fav apps, but the latest update makes the delay even longer. Usually if i type again right after i hit send button in all chatting apps i only skip 1 letter, now i can loose 1 short word. It's really annoying. I rather not update the apps if i know this case would happen.

        So, you should open this case again since the solution given was not solve this issue. As a matter of fact that the newest update make the lag even worst

      • KatieKatie commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I agree with everyone. Since the update, it is lagging very badly on my s4. Didn't do this bef

        A friend and I tested my problem below.
        Version 4.XX is a lot faster than version 5.xx.

        My friend used a HTC ONE (m7) Max

        FIX THIS swiftkey! I spend 4 Euro for your app...
        This thread exists since june 2012 -.-"

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I have still the problem, where the first word or letters not register.
        Other keyboards do not have this problem.

        Any ideas, downgrade possibilities?

        I have Swiftkey 5.0.1.77

        LG G2 on Android 4.4.2.

      • MitchMitch commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I also have the same lag problem where the first 1 or 2 words would not register.
        I've tried other keyboards and the default samsung keyboard on my Note 2 and did not experience any lag.

      • 1BassJohn1BassJohn commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Glad I found this! Thought it was just me... Keyboard has become so laggy.. Often it won't even catch my first word /swipe. SK is a great product, but unfortunately I must go back to stock keyboard. Word prediction has got worse is become frustrating to type. At times won't even recognise a basic word I swyped.

        Such a shame, will have to return to SwiftKey at a later date when this has been resolved.

        I have the same exact problem on my VZW Galaxy S3 running the most recent version of Swiftkey. It is so laggy and slow to come up that I have to uninstall it again. I thought it would be better this time too.

      • Brian WardBrian Ward commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is so funny. I was about to sell my device, and it turns out it was SwiftKey that was causing the lag that made the device so annoying. Who knew the keyboard would have such a big influence on performance? Back to Google Keyboard for me. I wonder if its because my personal Swiftkey dictionary is large from years of use?

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I definitely notice more lag in the last two versions of SK before that weren't there before. I would love if it could be rectified but doing some reading its been doing this for a while on certain phones. I have a GS3 non rooted on VZW running 4.3 and SK ver4.4.4.264

        Using Version 4.5 with emoji and optional 5th number row here, Updated 3/17/2014, and three previous beta versions. I also have the paid version installed. HTC One, Sense 5.5, Android 4.4.2.
        This latest beta version and the previous version has a serious lag between tapping the keys and displaying the characters. It may have occurred since the latest Android and Sense firmware updates. In any case, the problem is serious enough that I may have to use a different keyboard, after enjoying Swiftkey for over three years now on my HTC One and my HTC Evo before this. Please fix this ASAP. It is NOT fixed in the current version.

        I had this issue and I was able to resolve it by disabling the 3-tap shortcut on my nexus 10 in the accessibility settings (the setting that allows the user to zoom into a part of the screen). No idea why it was only an issue for swift key.
