    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.

        I still have lags when using it, on my mobile phone more that the tablet. My mobile is a Huawei G700 and my tablet is a Galaxy Tab S.

        SwiftKey is getting slower, tried all (closing applications, not using flow feature) and for some reason it keeps freezing, just seconds but freezing. I love using it but it is getting really annoying. So wondering if there will be a fix anytime soon.

        Swift Key has not just lag on my Galaxy S3, but also loves to put in fun little letters in where they don't belong when I'm typing something into Kingsoft Office. I did find a work around though. Download the Kii Keyboard. It's free, it's better, and doesn't lag. Swiftkey, you will never get my money ever again!

        I started having lag issues since de last 2 updates. Everything was fine before. Sometimes is so bad I had to change to another keyboard. Please fix this!

        Same problem here for about a month or two, think it specifically happens on Whatsapp. Samsung Galaxy S4

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I have also been experiencing this lag for about a month on my HTC one m7. I use two languages and disable no one seems to help a bit. Hope it works for a bit but I really want to be able to go back to 2 languages. Is there a fix coming soon? This is an awesome keyboard that's restored my faith in touchscreen phones. Please help.

        I've been having the same problem recently. I use the Samsung Galaxy s4 and it is constantly lagging mid type. It will literally freeze and very slowly type out the rest of the sentence after I have finished typing it. I have the most recent updated version of SwiftKey and this is truly frustrating

      • anonanon commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes. I too have had lag since the beginning with swiftkey with my galaxy s5.
        I am going back to stock keyboard.
        Really a shame.

        I absolutely love the SwiftKey keyboard, however it occasionally lags and I would be unable to type for minutes before it resuming to normal. I really hope this would be fixed asap.

        My swiftkey keyboard keeps lagging, and freezing. making it impossible to type. i always need to restart my phone. then it does the same thing all over again. i just got the new note 3. and i dont understand why it always lags .

      • scottscott commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I've commented on this problem for over a year ... conclusion - There is NO FIX for the swift key lag issue. I have tried everything imaginable -including killing every app and system process to increase memory to the max. This lag issue is an embedded problem with the swift key application and has not been fixed , despite inane messages to the contrary by the SK marketing personnel.

        The main problem seems to be is tied to email / exchange server connectivity. I don't experience lag when texting but I experience unbearable lag in email. This will occasionally include gmail.

        Stop checking your phone for the problem .......the problem is with the SK application. As i predicted last year, stock keyboards are quickly catching up to SK prediction without the lag issues. As much as I like the SK app, the Google keyboard and stock keyboards are now a better choice. My guess is that SK will be surpassed by the stock keyboard apps within the next 12 months ......

        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????

        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. :)
