    Microsoft SwiftKey is very good. It is free with no ads, and I do recommend this keyboard. It has themes, arrows to move cursor up, down, left, and right, that is one of my favorites features, and other features like floating keyboard, resize keyboard, and other very useful features. Beta is also stable with no bugs.

    apk SwiftKey is the best key I have ever used, but sometimes (very rare), if I want to write something, it disappears and after a couple minutes, Android says:"Microsoft SwiftKey Beta is not answering and was stopped". But it only happens once or twice a month.

    download The app requires you to give it access to your gmail contacts. Hours after granting this, I received 2 spam messages through whatever they're calling Google Chat these days. It's possible that it's a coincidence, but I've never received spam messages through chat before, which is suspicious. I had to transition to this beta after they broke my theme and I couldn't type correctly. I'm done with Swiftkey.

    Christina Saxton


    teclado After the last update the app closes out on me while I'm kn the middle of typing. It also stopped autocorrecting which means it now takes forever to type things since I have to keep going back to correct basic words it should be correcting as I type. I was going to drop the beta version for a bit but I read the reviews on the stable Version and they're no better. Please get this back to the amazing app it has been up until the recent update.

    Until now, I did not have a beta version of the Microsoft keyboard. I just found out that the beta version has more features And this is called two of the favorite apps My Piano Phone Mini Piano Light When the piano keyboard on the Lenovo tablet is hard and difficult It made a bad noise I came across the beta and saw that most of the problems were solved. From my dear friends Microsoft & Google (Android) Thank you very much for supporting my scientific advancement. DR:A.Bakhsha 18.03.2

    SwiftKey (both this version and the non-beta version) keep falsely reporting that my device is "locked", and some functionality is blocked. All permissions are allowed for SwiftKey. No other apps make this false claim about the device, and all other apps function with no problem.

    There are still some changes to be incorporated. Like the question mark is still in the direction of English. It has to have it's rounded face on opposite sides as we write Sindhi from right to left.

    The hold to delete a word option delay is lengthened, but its too long. It was better before this. Now it takes to long to start the function. It's frustrating. At least you could add an option to decide the length of it.

    I think this is a great app. I love everything about it except for one thing I can't get a new paragraph when I am doing voice to text. Does anybody know how to do this. Other than that is an excellent app.

    AWESOME DUDES!! Microsoft has done a fantastic job with the themes available. Big virtual keyboards are in high demand and very customizable! A JOB WELL DONE.

  11. Adam-avatar



    So far it's way more accurate than the regular version... Only needed two corrections in that first sentence and none in this one. Needs an option to select single backspace word delete.

    Height adjustable keyboard is an asset to me, more room for your thumb 👍 to type. Even if you want to use number row, easy to use and easy to set up.

    The keyboard size is weird in a Samsung note and Samsung s21 ultra. Multiple resizes just didn't get me to the right ratio. It doesn't support Android autofill API

    Best keyboard so far. I wish there were more themes, or that we could make our own using a picture from our gallery, and have set looks for the buttons that we could choose from. Also, something that could be completely unique to this keyboard? Being able to assign any icon to any letters long press feature. For example, we could put the question mark on the "m" key, or the "q" key. Also, if we capitalize, the icons change maybe? So that would be quick access to two pages of icons. Just an idea

    I just installed I this morning on 02/13/21. So far, the first thing that jumped was how fast it is. Lightning fast! It types fast, it searches fast, it load the themes SUPER fast! Wow... The only bug I thought I was experiencing it was that it didn't predict my Emojis but I think that it went back to learn my Emojis. far... The rest of the dictionary is working according to the way it was. No. Actually, the predictions are so much better than the older version...! 😊

    It's insanely frustrating that it can't stick to a chosen language - without any bleeding.

  21. Frosti80-avatar



    Could someone there please fix all the glitches that have been going on for months. Please look at the 'negative' comments, there are people with the same problems. I keep having to go back and make corrections because the keyboard just isn't working properly anymore. I have auto-correction and predictions turned off and still the keyboard goes berserk, adds unwanted words and letters, triples up on letters. I'm using the Samsung Galaxy S7 plus tablet.

    How can u miss a button or gesture on your keyboard to just change the keyboard? Which is like deliberately forcing to stick with this keyboard alone. To change I have to go to settings, the search for input and languages, then manage keyboards and the to entirely turn off this keyboard. Why can't u just make this process simple by just andding a long press gesture on the emoji button, or numeric button on the keyboard. We love ur keyboard, just the lack of this functionality is irritating.

    i feel very sad and uncomfortable after knowing that Microsoft swift keyboard has only one layout for urdu language, urdu language have almost 36 letters so it need 36 buttons like Google keyboard made it available so kindly update and make it sure. that's why I will give 4 stars thanks

    I really like all the different themes to choose from that are all free. So far very user friendly. I really enjoy the control to how big you want the key board size to be. Would be nice if I could make space bar bigger so I am not always hitting period instead of space. Also with swip text if it doesn't get the world right on first try I usually hit delet and the whole word goes away here you have to manually delete every letter.

    overall I really like this keyboard I never have problems with it although it's beta. just one little thing that annoys me every time. if I'm tipping German the keyboard always start with a capital letter after a full stop or begin of text which is really annoying when I use Quizlet (App to learn Vocabulary). I already turned the "auto capitalise" off and it's still happening.

    Have been using SwiftKey for over 5 years now. Like the built in translator, the ability to link Google Calendar with a single touch, and toggling between speech to text and slide typing and back is seamless on this version. Accurately generates words faster than I can type using Gboard. Great app!

  30. Leshawn-avatar



    I like SwiftKey for years however you should get rid of the notification that pops up and prevents you from typing for a few seconds when you click the "incognito" button. That alert should appear the first time you press it but never again. It's very annoying.

    It's good and worths it to give it a chance! But I wanna suggest it would be much better if it was blurred like what you did in windows or something like that and cloud clipboard I mean the clipboard should be synced with windows one to make copy-paste eveb easier than past! And please fix persian language we don't need zwnj key and tge other one َ blieve me! Instead of that separate پ, ث, ض, ظ from the other keys it's really annoying!

    Okay its good because it has alot of theme and its good and cool and the colors of the a keyboard is good like dude if u finding a cool, good keyboard download this im using it rn to the creator of the game just wanna say YOU'RE THE BEST, BECAUSE THIS IS THE COOLEST KEYBOARD I'VE EVER SEEN🥰

    I really like the keyboard but it doesn't work so well with the Google voice search. It seems like it doesn't understand what I am saying and inputs the wrong words and when I try to delete one word it ends up deleting multiple words or the whole sentence.

  38. HOT TOP-avatar



    I often read reviews of not just apps I have and use, but also random apps. This is my first review of any app. Although I did get to the first of this month, I was glad to see die hard MS fans speak bluntly about the shabbiness (is this a word?) of this [email protected]#[email protected]$h1T app. Unreal to me aI'm beginning to dislike MS and their Brand's.

    Instead of worrying about adding languages why don't you get the English to work first?! You are doing things half assed... The swipe feature is awful. I have to continously correct words I type. Why can't you make keyboard change with new themes as they are applied?

    Move the period please, it's placement next to the space bar means that while I am rapidly texting I am accidentally hitting the pros constantly and having to spend time going back over the text or email to remove the periods and capitialization (bad spelling) that follows or give me the option to move it

    What was once the best keyboard has slowly devolved into the worst. The inability to correct mundane typos common on phones effectively makes it so that the keyboard is actively detrimental to the user experience.

    I can give you 5 Star if you put colour option in text KEYBOARD . Like photo gallery editer. NO RESPONSE FROM YOU.WHY? If you are not allowing other LAYOUT then why did you SHOW?

    The quick toggles on the toolbar show that annoying message for too long for it to be actually useful. Please give us the opition to turn off simultaneous multilingual typing. Using Latin scripts to transliterate into other languages is helpful but not helpful when you force us to manage 2 or more languages at once. I've been using SwiftKey before the Microsoft acquisition but for the first time ever I am tempted to switch to gboard because they let you keep transliteration boards separate.

  69. Samar-avatar



    SwiftKey is Microsoft owned and hence priority is more on stability rather than features. I see no balance and that's bad. No full personalized theme support (only limited and basic is available). Extra toolbar for settings, themes, search, GIF, etc. can easily be merged with the keyboard, but Microsoft is not thinking of it . Any or may be 3 buttons can be shifted to the keyboard area reducing size of spacebar a little. The stupidest thing is an 'update' is actually a language added. LOL

    So far this keyboard is proving fantastic, it works well on my oppo A72 phone. Predictive text is good, most keys are available on the main screen using long press. My phone came with gboard pre installed, that keyboard really is appalling press e and you get a b! I have tried other paid for keyboards, more bells and whistles than actual function. A basic keyboard should be essential, they can't be that hard to program compared to games etc. So for the moment SwiftKey app of choice wing.

    So disappointed with the latest update. I cannot type without numerous errors, it's lagging and I have never had this issue before; is so aggravating. The arrows that I had in the middle of the keyboard cannot be put back there where I needed them, not at the bottom. It's unfortunate. Why change all these things and in my opinion, for the worse? It was fine before. Dev ops may have messed this one up and may leave also. Sad.

  78. Deane Gross-avatar

    Deane Gross


    I use various swype keyboards. It always seems that after several months I have to switch. So I'm back here again after GBoard started getting glitchy. Each keyboard has its own peculiarities, too complicated to explain. The very best one ever, one that rarely did weird things, was Swype + Dragon. I don't know why it disappeared, but I miss it with every keystroke. So, this one will have to do till I need to switch to another in a month or two. Oh well.

  79. Canaan Fong-avatar

    Canaan Fong


    Was great until Microsoft bought it. Unfortunately there is no better alternative. EDIT 10/13/20: The arrow keys are along the bottom, I've always had them in the middle, I've gotten completely used to the spacing and position of arrow keys. I use this for speed, not to have to learn a new layout when you roll out an update. I apologize if this sentiment is incompatible with the beta, but I think it still applies that new features (spacebar scrolling) shouldn't break familiar functionality.

    Looks good except that the backspace to delete seems slow at times,it would be good to delete the entire word rather than just a character specially for wrongly typed words... Noticed many words not being picked up by flow

  81. Grant Hazzard-avatar

    Grant Hazzard


    It used to be a great keyboard, then Microsoft came long and wrecked it, it doesn't type what I want, where it used to be smart and learn my speech patterns, I'll try to swipe a word, and instead it'll not register as a word and think I'm trying to type a single letter that I'm having trouble finding. I tried to get used to the changes, but I'm done, uninstalling after I struggled through typing this review.

  82. Derrell Durrett-avatar

    Derrell Durrett


    It's OK, but I came here after Swype ceased security updates, and it was (eventually) far superior to this even now. And currently on a newer tablet (Samsung Galaxy Tab A 2019, versus 2017), it's slower, though better at getting the word I'm typing, or at least suggesting a closer word. One thing that's probably a difference in settings that I'm not sure how to find is that now, if I have to type to teach it a new word, it doesn't generally present that as a choice in the autocomplete bar.

  83. Gabriel Stapert-avatar

    Gabriel Stapert


    It's not a good experience with multiple languages installed. I speak English and Spanish and I'm learning Swedish. I would be much better if the language currently selected was the only language I get suggestions and auto corrections for. It would also be really nice if I could write decimals without it removing the space before the dot.

    I have been using SwiftKey for years and I love it. I just won't use any other keyboard. The Samsung keyboard is no match and neither is Google's. I love that over the course of a few years, SwiftKey can predict a made-up word that I have started typing, OR EVEN IF I HAVE TYPO'D A WORD I LITERALLY JUST MADE UP. To me this is amazing and delightful. Clipboard is hella quality. My only issue is that sometimes the first word in a sentence will be fine but the next will be all caps. Very minor.

  85. Robert Thomas-avatar

    Robert Thomas


    Faster than any other keyboard I've tried, but sometimes it grinds to a halt in extended writing sessions. Autocorrect is aggressive. The "sync" feature is essentially useless spyware. It can't sync your setup between different phones or even between the standard and beta releases on the same phone, but it's uploading everything to microsoft for "product improvement." I'd bump this review to 4 stars if the sync feature gets fixed or the random slowdowns are improved, 5 stars if both get fixed.

    PLEASE add option to only type in a single language! I get hát when typing hat in English mode. Edit : nor the normal, nor the beta has this option still. Edit2: seems to lose the "line start" sometimes (only picking up from second or third letter, not seeing the start)Edit3: it's a nightmare to get and write Hungarian with this kb. Still mixes the two languages together, and has no idea of very common Hungarian words

Now when I press the mic it has this annoying delay when speaking into it. . Sucks!! But when I flip to gboard the mic works Smooth and captures 99 percent of my words. Pls fix if possible.

    loved the keyboard till last update: I used to have arrows (which are really helpful) in a column in the middle of the keyboard while in 'thumb' layout. Now arrows are at the bottom and you easily mis-touch them instead of space while making the keyboard bigger and slower to type. please restore arrows in the middle!

    On recent updates this app caused my LG LV 40 to not wake up after going to sleep. The screen would stay black. I could not get a reaction from touching the screen, from pressing the power button, or from touching the fingerprint reader on back. Had to plug in or do a reset to recover. Found this out after doing a factory reset. I used the phone for a few days before finishing the insall of app and it reappeared when reinsalled. Using Android 10 OS

    Constantly popping a window just above the text box to "help improve autofill" that wants to read the screen and track everything I or anyone else types. When I tell it never and to go away, it reverts to the pop-up box that blocks part of the chat. Uninstalling after a decade of devoted usage. Thanks, Microsoft, for ruining yet another great app (RIP Wunderlist).

    This has the potential to be a great keyboard but the massive dictionary that seems to contain a lot of bizarre garbage like github addresses and sheer nonsense (i have turned off the learning from me feature so they're not created by me). Swipe typing would work a lot better if it were possible to set a much smaller predictive dictionary of only common words.

    Keyboard has a large area above it which cannot be removed and takes almost an inch of my screen asking me to set a language. I do not want anything above the keyboard and it is trying to force to into suggested words and spelling. I would say the motives behind locking these features in are questionable at best. The backspace key is capable of backspacing an entire page at a time at random, and has cost me weeks of my time simple discarding my work. Backspace needs to be one character

    I used this keyboard (payed license) for many years on many devices. I was always very satisfied. Transition between devices was always smoothless. Now with the upgrade to microsoft this keyboard suddenly became useless. No accurate predictions, no typo corrections, missing functionality,...

  96. Michael Costello-avatar

    Michael Costello


    Mostly good, but often overcomplicates predictions beyond the base word. E.g., I want to type, "I like the colour of your hair". When I start typing "colour", after the first couple of letters it picks "colours" I have two options 1. Ignore and type the full word. 2. Pick the option and then backspace to clear the added letters.

    i love this keyboard. I love the features of this keyboard specially the puppet panel. But to make it more enjoyable please add some more puppet animals and puppet emoji faces. Nevertheless it is the best keyboard ever, keep updating this app. Thanks, you deserve a 5 star rating. God bless. What happened! Where's the puppet panel, pleas bring it back☹️. And it's been so loggi lately

    Best keyboard i ever use! But please make the clipboard can be syncronized to other devices that use this keyboard with the same account. And please add text editing mode with Dpad, copy, paste, and select All button. And the Last feature i want but its not necessary is add some game in this keyboard😂, like 2048, so its a great feature if you boring waiting someone reply your chat, then you can play the game in your keyboard without left the chat app

    With the latest update it seems that you have removed the option to have the arrows placed in the middle of the thumbs layout. This is not a good move, you have aslo removed the option to have the letters at the center 'duplicated' on each side of the gap which really ruins the flow of writing as quick as before.

    I have used many different typing app but Swift key is the best typing app I have ever used. I have been using this app for over 2 years now But I started experiencing problems with the app when it was updated 2 months ago. The problem is that I can no longer creat shortcut for copied items I saved in the clipboard. It hangs and crashes it time I tried to do that and this error start happening after I have saved up to 20 items in the clipboard. using infinix s5 android phone. Please Kindly fix

  101. fdlfrs-avatar



    Just because this keyboard is at the top of the keyboard game doesn't mean it doesn't have anything to learn from other keyboard...... To drag spacebar to move cursor feature is to sensitive to be accurate... The tool bar at the top requiring extended area is annoying..... Fixing previous autocorrected words is more convenient on gboard (like you don't have exactly tap at the end of the word)... Typing animation is outdated..... Basically just copy gboard in these aspects... what's so hard? Smh

    Good , but multi language support still lacking. Every so often I install this app after getting frustrated with GBoard. The keyboard is great overall, but it does not let you force input to stick with one language like GBoard. Until it has that, it's just too frustrating to use for multiple languages.

    This is a good keyboard app, But i give it 3 stars cuz this 1 bug that's really really annoy me. When you at fullscreen mode and you typing at reply in notification bar like WhatsApp, The keyboard position is up on the screen, not down so i can't see what i'm typing.

    I like it, I hate the voice type. It was good, but then either Google updated something or Microsoft did, but either way it's back to being horrible and inaccurate. The rest is great.

  105. Anderwriter-avatar



    It's improving. • Spaces are still added after characters like hyphens and dashes. (Try glide-typing a hyphenated word, one half at a time, and see what a hassle it is.) • Auto-capitalization's turned off after opening parentheses/brackets that start sentences. • Bullet ( • ) and star ( ★ ) chars. are still missing. (We need them for list and attention items. I had to switch back to Gboard to type these.) Thanks!

    The Beta version seems to be better than the recently become awful official version. Why is there no button to toggle the arrow keys on and off? Most of the time I don't want them but when I do it is incredibly tedious to turn them on. Am I missing something?

    Why is it adding a space after periods? When I want to type my email, which has a period in it, it adds a space after the period... and again, WHY is there an irremovable "Microsoft SwiftKey" stamp on the space bar? It looks unsightly and we already know we're using SwiftKey 🤦🏻‍♂️

  108. LaPotrancaRegia-avatar



    I love it, works great, saves common things like emails. Also able to go between English and Español with out changing anything on the keyboard. Layout styles options are awesome, so many to choose from too.

    I've tried other keyboards and I can't get use to anything else, I love the responsiveness because I'm a quick typer and sometimes rely autocorrect to correct any minor spelling errors and punctuation. The only issue I'm having is with my new phone ( Pixel 3xl ) I'm constently hitting the a instead of the a and autocorrect ignores it and sometimes changes my correct spelling to the incorrect one. For me it's usually "that" being changed to "thst" or it just ignores it thinking its correct.

  110. Stefan Sundström-avatar

    Stefan Sundström


    Using multiple languages, the spell check is always indicating wrong spelling with red underscore, the language should change when switching keyboard. Even words in its own dictionary ends up with red underscores. Shouldn't be too complicated to implement. Believe there are a good number of users using more than one language,

    When is Swiftkey being updated to take advantage of the new Android 11 feature to integrate login prompts within the keyboard from password managers. GBoard beta has this feature and it works well. Great keyboard, been using it for a long time now.

    Predictions have gotten worse when swiping, sometimes messes up badly. Excellent cursor control, wide set of customizations but still missing a few features. Option to delete more than one word while using flow would be great. Proper emoji search is a much needed feature.

  113. Gabriel Ortiz-avatar

    Swiftkey is in the hunt! Thumb-board and Hacker's keyboard. OK, please add weighted logic gates to INCLUDE the SPACEBAR as just another symbol when swipped, and NOT prominent as a return or end key to the autocorrect algorithm. THX

    Its great in mostly every aspect, but I still think it should provide more customisation option in custom themes like picking the accent color for keyboard and background colors or gradients with customizable opacity with the background image.

    I have no idea how, as I did not update the! 100% not updated, and the one thing that made it enjoyable, was the input microphone gui was much cleaner and functional!

    Have used this app for years until this week. It is adding words as I type that are not even close to what I am typing. The prediction has sucked the last few weeks. I tried to type accountability and it inserted avocado.

    Bring the arrow keys to the middle in thumb mode!!! Nothing you do will satisfy users until this feature is restored. The longer you delay doing this, the more you lose daily users! It isn't rocket science.

    The Cursor Control using the spacebar needs some easing / a delay on the first second character move. As it is, it's too difficult to move just one character. Thanks

    Need a handwriting input for S-pen. Only keyboard with a Tab/Index Key. Key reorder would be clutch also. Love the concept of switching between layouts. If I could have the 3 keyboards that readily available. Ooooh. Just Imagine being able to set up the perfect most efficient avalable set. Do it. Gboard is my fav interface for handwriting, yet Samsung Keyboard for evryday use (keys cafe is dope for the every day set up). Wouldn't even probably use Word, Excel on my Note 10 if it wasn't for u 😍

    Average. My built in swype keyboard from my old galaxy s4 was the best swype I've used.. This is a keyboard, doesn't learn your words doesn't predict frequently used words /names though I'm sure it should.. I had to edit this 10 times before submitting, stupid. Didn't happen on s4 & bought s10 expecting serious improvement with built in but had to download this. Same same really... 'Always' always comes out as 'ashtrays' don't think I've ever written ashtrays on purpose in a text ever.. Pffft.

    Horrible battery drain. Used this for 6 or 7 years. Now the swipe is horrible and the autocorrect is amazingly horrible. Microsoft, you suck. Please sell this back to the original owners and stay away from what used to be a really great tool. Uninstalling. Really a shame.

    Why on earth was one column moved from right to left on the Swedish keyboard?? Right side has always had six columns and five on the left. Now it's swapped for no good reason. Bye bye to muscle memory plus I'm right handed so having to reach more on the left thumb is harder. Argh.
