    Thanks for info Cr6. I'll keep swype in mind. I believe I tried it when I had my s3. Right now I'm. Trying the trial version of SlideIT. It's OK (honestly I don't like it ) but that's cuz I'm use to SK.

    SwiftKey used to be awesome.. But then they started giving it away and it got pretty heavy.. I hadn't noticed.. But if I don't reboot my device for a few weeks.. Mine lags too.. Just a little bit I have a 64 gig turbo

    Been using Google keyboard the past few days and I'm not sure if I'll switch back to Swiftkey if it doesn't get fixed within the next 2 or 3 days. Honestly, I thought they would've fixed it by now.

    Yeah, I've been thinking this very thing for over a year now. Because this has been happening for so long across so many different devices, I think this keyboard is needlessly bloated and needs to be completely revamped. If you look at the latest reviews, everybody is complaining about the lag, the exact same issues I experienced with it over a year ago. I know it's been updated quite a few times since I stopped using it, yet it continues to have the same issues I had when I stopped using it... so yeah IDK.
    All we can do is continue to email the developer and hope for the best.
    Anyone tried ai.type keyboard. ai.type keyboard Free Emoji - Android Apps on Google Play
    Recent reviews are mostly 4-5 stars.

    Ai. Type looks ok. It has a lot of the features i wanted out of SwiftKey. Number row, comma, enter key, emoji , and aarow keys. It has swipe, but i think that's in the paid version. If any one uses it let us know what you think.

    No it's not just your being used to SK. SlideIt is infuriatingly inconsistent. One time you use it it's a mind reader but the next time it might not get anything correct. I've been going back and forth between SlideIt from my Windows Mobile days to Swype from its beta days. Since you're a slider my suggestion to turn off Flow in Swift Key won't help . When they said gestures, like Swype and SlideIt have had for years, aren't possible in slide keyboards I gave up on SK for good, stick strictly to Swype now. SlideIt promises accuracy nirvana with every update and fail to deliver every time but since I paid for it years ago I still try it every now and then just to revert back to Swype. Gestures for copy/paste, etc are more important to me than a numbers row.

    On my note 4 I use the stock Samsung keyboard only to use the hot key function. (which honestly I don't have programmed) On my tablet I just installed SwiftKey yesterday again and love it just as much as I always have.

    I haven't read the whole thread so I'm not sure about the whole conversation or what you've tried but you can clear some caches to help clear keyboard lag. I forget the other ones to clear besides SwiftKey but there were others

    I believe ive done more. Than the average person. Deleted apps, disabled apps, cleared data, cleared cache. Along with the lag the amount of Ram it uses, which allows it to drain my battery.

    I'm actually using the trial version of ai. Type right now. I like it better than swype nad slideit. I'm missing the swipe feature due to it being a trial.
