    On Verizon,and received the kit kat update yesterday afternoon. Swiftkey has worked awesome when texting in the stock text app. Now, one day into the update, the texting is super laggy and just punching in a letter is making the text screen get huge, and it's inputting letters I'm not even choosing. Anyone else having this issue? Or has anyone heard of this.?

    Try clearing cache and data for SwiftKey. 99% certain fix.

    Tried it. Still the same,super glitchy. Even uninstalled beta. Uninstalled the actual Swiftkey app and reinstalled it twice. Wow. This sucks. Can't hardly type this message. Switching back to LG stock keyboard. Lame. Guess I'll contact Swiftkey and see what they say. I'll post an update when I find out

    I use swiftkey beta with no issues at all. My only issue with this update is auto brightness is really flaky.

    That might settle down after a few reboots....
    Might also try disabling auto brightness, rebooting, then reenabling it.

    Did anyone notice that after the update, you can pinch to zoom or minimize the text message screen? This seems to be a huge issue with the keyboard input on Swiftkey. It is thinking that I'm double tapping the screen and expanding , when in reality I'm just trying to input a letter. I'm curious to know if anyone has had an issue with this zoom feature for the text message app. Tried to look for a way to disable it, to no avail

    I just tried it out, pinch to zoom works fine and double tapping does nothing, but i use the lg keyboard so it must have something to do with swiftkey

    there is no spoon

    Right on. Thanks for giving it a shot. Just confirms my theory about a bug within Swiftkey. I guess I'll wait till they address this in an update, hopefully sooner than later.

    Hi NWRULES
    You might want to post the bug report on SwiftKey forum as well, or send the developer an email. It's been my experience that they're pretty responsive and appreciate knowing what issues people are having :)
